Discovered that our chocolate (inside suitcase among clothes) had been nibbled at, shredded wrapping left no doubt: a mouse, a rodent...wanted to change room, but got only offered bunk beds with external bath, so declined. They finally agreed to knock the last night (of a total of 6 nights) off the bill, yet, I would never return to the place.... More

I had prebooked my room but hadn't figured out that I could possibly upgrade. I dealt with Maggie and she was so accomodating, mind you it was graduation time and pretty much everything was booked.

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.
