Stayed at this hotel for four nights. It is well located for our purposes and is adjacent to Sarabeth's , a wonderful NYC group of restaurants. Had an issue with the poor quality of the bedding. Much too soft and we complained. To their credit, they are planning to replace their bedding in the 1st Q of 2017 and we... More

Room was perfectly clean and very quiet on Madison ave near Central Park. Very inexpensive for NYC and a nice place. $188 w tax for a double. Only thing I missed was a Continental breakfast and a beer in a mini-fridge. Staff helped with directions too. Close to Mount Sinai Hospital on the East Side.

My family absolutely loved staying here. It was in a great location- a quick subway ride to touristy places, a quick walk to central park and great restaurants.

My husband had a business meeting on the upper east side of NYC, and this hotel was a choice of where to stay. Mostly I selected it because the meeting rates were good for a 'suite' since we needed a pull out sofa for grandkids. In short, I would say this is a dark hotel. Odd color paint on the... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
