Traditional, moderately-priced Upper Westside hotel, ideal for individual & family travelers. An ideal location near Central Park and across from the American Museum of Natural History. Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and Time Warner Center are each a great stroll from the hotel. The area is rich is restaurants and pubs, discount and upscale shopping and great family activities. Convenient to major universities and music conservatories.
Complimentary WiFi throughout, morning hot coffee and tea service and a truly cordial staff are what guests commend. Park 79 is truly a favorite hideaway for many guests who return to, "My favorite place to stay in NYC."
Down comforter in bedroom. Very friendly staff
I wish they had a coffee pot in the room.
Discomfort bed and bedding, tiny bathroom, old and discolored carpet
historic building nice, non-glitzy neighborhood, our room was at rear of building so it was quiet. staff was helpful & respectful.
tiny room with large post in middle o the tiny bathroom. no breakfast beyond coffee in the tiny lobby no comfortable place to sit in room besides on the bed.
Comfortable bed, clean room and restroom, great value.
To have a refrigerator in the room and air in the bathroom
Room was a decent size and had a private bath (be sure to check when making a reservation, as it seems not all rooms have private baths + sometimes bathrooms are quite small, and some rooms have smaller beds). The location is excellent - great neighborhood, with lots of great dining and public transportation options nearby. The staff members I spoke with were also helpful and polite.
There was a window AC unit that was pretty loud and ran constantly so I ended up turning it off overnight - it got a bit warm, but thankfully it wasn't too hot outside.
Lot of noise from neighbour rooms. The front desk attendant who promised to provide me with a spare comforter on request never turned up.
Room was clean, and well-maintained. Looked like a relatively recent renovation (new shower, paint, etc.) Front desk staff friendly and competent. Excellent location for AMNH visit. Booked through KAYAK and a very good value.
Room was quite small (though efficient) and though with double bed would not have accommodated two of us. But I was travelling alone and it was complete & a good value.
I travel extensively for business and am comfortable and familiar with hotels. Park 79 was an older hotel which is fine but the room had a strong oder of urine and the bed had a plastic mattress cover like you would use on a child's bed for bed wetting which was covered with a very thin bed sheet. I was booked for 2 nights, non refundable but left after 1 night.
