I didn't want to spend a fortune while taking two of my children to NYC for three days. The location, price and nice reception staff balanced out the tiny, dated rooms. The beds were comfortable and room was very clean. Our intention was not to spend the three days holed-up in our room anyway. We were out the door at...

My wif, youngest daughter and I stayed in a suite, and we stayed for 3 nights. We experienced a few pros and a lot of cons with staying here: Pros: - this hotel was in a very nice part of town. We felt very safe walking around and exploring the area - Riverside Park is about 50 feet from the...

The Riverside Tower Hotel is a decent bargain-price hotel in the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Small rooms? Yes. In need of some TLC? Yes. But for the price, this hostel-type hotel offers clean, safe and adequate accommodations with private baths in a quiet, wonderful part of the city across from Riverside Park. No frills, but you won't find a...

I like this hotel very much. I have been visited that palce twice. First of all this is amazing location for good price. There is Zabar's, subway, good cafes and restaurants and Riverside Drive Park near the hotel. Really, what more could you ask? Central park is very close too. You can find a fridge, microwave and TV in the...

This is not a luxury hotel but it's very good location and excellent price make it a good place to stay if you don't need anything fancy. My grandson and I had the 2-bedroom Suite which was very good in that it allowed each of us to keep our own nighttime hours without disturbing the other. The rooms were quite...

I have stayed at this hotel a lot of times as a matter of fact is our go to hotel every time we go which is at least once a year. I normally get a good view of the river but if you stay in the second floor you will not be as lucky. I suggest you get a room...

My stay at the hotel was perfect and thanks to the staff who were very courteous and helpful. As i was traveling alone the room was just right with storage space, microwave, television and a single bed. House keeping cleans the room everyday. The location is great, about 10 to 20 minutes by taxi to all the major sitings. Most...

Best value for money, even if its too much for a tourist from a developing country in Asia. I say this because the location of the hotel makes up for the price. Its walking distance to Central Park, the ambience of Sex in the City, the nearby cafe -love Zabar's - and the river view! The room is clean, accommodated...

This hotel was well located as was a short walk to subway and a short walk to restaurants, bars and shops. The room was small but adequate, with single bed, tv, cupboard, bedside table - fine for one or two nights. The bathroom was also small but adequate, and clean with well functioning shower. There was quite a draft coming...

Yes, the Riverside has tiny very basic rooms. I'm OK with that. This is my 3rd stay here but I won't be back. Tuesday night was good, now it is 2am on Thursday and there has been shouting, yelling, and the sounds of something being dragged down the stairs. Now the shouting has moved to the street. There is no...

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
