central park

I used to live in New York and have since moved upstate. I try to come once a month to run a race in my beloved Central Park but sometimes it is just too expensive on my fixed income.

Nice, but no luxury

You can't beat the location-great neighborhood! However, the hotel is tired and the staff seems tired, too. At first glance, it seems you have been put in somebody's grandmother's apt. in the city. Everything is just alittle worn and faded. Believe it or not, it grows on you, though, and begins to feel homey after a few days. It's no luxury hotel-you bring your own bags to your room and the towels are the kind of scratchy kind. All of this could have been overlooked if the front desk had cared one iota about what was going on. (We were originally given a room that was already occupied! When we returned to the front desk, we were told, "No prob.") Internet is expensive and per computer, not per room.(We were with 2 travelers who each had their own laptops and sharing a room. We had to buy internet access for EACH of them. Seems to be unreasonable.) On the plus side, the kitchens are a bonus, and with a little corner store up the street, we were stocked up within hours of arriving. Sure beats room service charges. All in all, a nice hotel, just not a luxury hotel, in a great location.

Roomy

Suite with lots of room. Was told I was being upgraded. However, I had reserved a no-smoking room and this one had 3 ashtrays; fortunately, only a slight smoke odor. Easy walk to United Nations. Short walk to buses to Newark Airport.

Convenient location and great price

The hotel is close to the UN Headquarters where I had meetings. It was also close to restaurants and Grand Central Station. Everything you needed was in walking distance. I didn't need to use taxis.

simple but nice hotel

I would like to have a larger television and also would like to have more cable stations. Program choices are very limited. If you have any kind of problem they are very cooperative and I have requested room changes a couple of times without any problems. Basically I stay at the hotel because I once lived in New York and now I'm living upstate and I come into the city to run in Central Park, see the city again and visit with some old friends.

Needs an update

Room and location would have been acceptable had the price not been so steep. The location is good but the room is a bit date, run down and dirty. Not awful by any stretch but will look elsewhere next time.
