No drinking glasses, no paper cups, no thin plastic cups, nothing from which to drink. But the sheets were clean, the hot water was hot, there were no apparent bugs, the carpet was clean, and there were three boxes of Kleenix. The desk people didn't think the lack of a drinking cut was a problem. I can accept that there... More

I had many issues with this establishment but the most note worthy was the unprofessionalism and rude behavior of the manager, Denise. Over the telephone I had asked to speak with a manager initially to simply upgrade my current reservation to a more expensive room reservation. The manager was rude from the moment she got on the phone. She interrupted... More

This hotel should be closed! The floor was uneven, the carpet was dirty and had sports allover! You can't avoid the bad chlorine smell, however you tried to! The floor was lining so much that when I put a water bottle on the night stand by the side of my bed and it felt on the floor before I could... More

We stayed at this property for 6 nights in May. We had a room with a private bathroom. The room was clean and spacious they even brought us up our own mini fridge. I did not find the need for a private bathroom as the shared bathroom was always available.. The location was great just a short walk to the... More

Loved the neighborhood. There are lots of restaurants nearby, a subway stop for the 1,2 and 3 trains is a block away, and both Central and Riverside parks are just a few blocks walk. The neighborhood is lively and I felt safe even alone and after dark. Our private bath was really tiny and a little weird but it was... More

The staff was really great! The room was clean and comfortable. My only issues was they really need to have the bathrooms cleaned more often. If its a shared bathroom, the sanitation should be more frequent. Other than that, it was good!

Wife and I visited NYC for 2 nights and in our search for a "reasonably" priced room found the Royal Park. Anywhere else I would have said it was way overpriced but for $205 per night in NYC we considered it ok. The room was large, with a/c, clean and the bed comfortable. Front desk personnel were friendly and helpful.... More

For this being in central New York the value was amazing. You have to share a bathroom, however I paid more for a room in another hotel close by and it wasn't even worth having your own bathroom for the size of the room. This hotel is situated very close to the red line on 96th street with is amazing... More

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.
