Drove into NYC to stay for a night on the way up the East Coast to see what we could see in a 24 hour period. You might be intimidated to drive into the city for a stay, but don't be! Just make sure that you drive as close to the person in front/beside you as possible and you'll fit right in! We drove right in and had the valet at the hotel take the car to their off-site parking facility and that was the last we saw of the car until we left the next day. You don't need/want a car in the city anyways. The following day, we wanted to see what was around the hotel and do some typically touristy things. Since the valet parking comes with a 24 hour price, we were able to stow our luggage in the lobby and walk around the museum mile (which is an easy walk from the hotel) and come back to grab the car well after the 11:00 check out time, so that was well worth it. Staff was friendly and courteous and the room service...the room service was amazing! Sarabeth's menu was amazing and the presentation didn't disappoint. Do yourself a favor and get you breakfast in bed when you stay.
"NO FRILLS. WERE IT POSSIBLE, WE WOULD RATE IT 3,5"
This no frills hotel on Manhattan's upper West Side is competitively priced. Good hotel for
business people on the move and/or those on a limited budget. Vacation somewhere else
if you want an in house restaurants, room service, cozy bar, or other luxury amenities.
Of all the superlatives used to describe the Upper East Side, one word is apt: richest. Some of the city’s wealthiest residents live in the high rises that line Fifth Avenue. Be prepared to spend an entire day at the Museum of Metropolitan Art. Both a physical and art-world behemoth, the Met is home to several masterworks, from an intact ancient Nubian temple to post-modern color studies.
