We have stayed at the Riverside Tower four times, with each stay being for a week. So we know the hotel and the neighborhood very well. We have had very positive experiences each time.
We know of no other clean hotel in New York priced this low with a private bathroom.
The rooms are very clean. We have never seen any sign of insects. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The daily maid service very efficient. The other guests are generally European budget travelers and quite congenial.
The rooms are tiny. MAKE CERTAIN YOU GET A SUITE. They only cost an additional $10. Staying in a tiny double room would be very difficult for two people. With a suite you get two small rooms: one for sleeping, another for relaxing. You get two TV's, two sinks, two bureaus, a small frig, a microwave, a table and two chairs.
The neighborhood, the Upper West Side, is one of the best in NYC. The hotel is right on Riverside Park and near the Hudson River. Within two blocks is H&H Bagels, perhaps the best bagel bakery in the city. Every night on our way back to the hotel we stop for our breakfast bagels. Also within two blocks is Zabars, a legendary NY food store and great for coffee and pastries. Within a few blocks are many great, moderately priced ethnic restaurants. Three block away is the #1 subway line which provides a quick trip to Lincoln Center, Times Square, Penn Station, and Greenwich Village.
The hotel is very basic, the rooms are tiny. But it is a clean, friendly place to stay in a fantastic and very safe neighborhood.
