            The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning worked well.

            I did not feel the cost was explained well. I booked the room online and the printout said, "Total cost of room - $229. When we arrived, another $40 was added in taxes. That is deceiving the way you state it on your booking form.

            I really enjoyed my stay at Park 79. The beds were extremely comfortable, the size of the room just right - and I hardly noticed that the washrooms were shared, as even though the hotel was fully booked I never had to wait for the washroom. The staff were friendly and helpful, and I will definitely return!

            Be aware that this is an older building and so has its share of cracks and dust - but the value, comfort and location make up for it!

            Location and cost. The tv did work though with limited channels.

            Walls were so thin, I could hear whispered conversations on either side of my room. The noise from the street, even on the 5th floor was terrible because the window was left open for the air conditioner and could not be closed. I could not turn on the heat since it was a radiator and not controlled in the room. I had to wait over 1 hour to use the shower / toilet despite being told there was only 1 other room using the same toilet / shower. The shower / toiletis are down the hall. The "high end" shower amenities were far from it. The water never got hot in the shower or in the sink in the room. My room was nothing like the picture on the website. I mean not even close. It really was a like a clean youth hostle, not a hotel room.

            The location is excellent - Central Park, museums and Subway right at your fingertips. The room I had was small but comfortable and the share bathroom was always clean and available whenever I needed it - I was worried about having only two bathrooms on the floor but I honestly never had to wait! The staff were very friendly and 24hr reception was great.

            I would've liked breakfast to be included but everything else was great.

            The location of the hotel was brilliant, close to subways, central park, history museum and lots of amenities. Clean sheets and towels every day and although we shared a bathroom (2 per floor) they were smart, well equipped and always clean. The staff were always pleasant, helpful and checked us in and printed off our boarding passes for the return flight home without any problem. Overall i was very happy with the hotel, felt it represented excellent value for money and was exactly was we needed as a young couple on a short break to the city. I would certainly stay there again.

            If there was anything we could possibly complain about was that the wi-fi was sometimes slow and inefficient inside the room. But you dont go to new york to sit in your room on the internet so wasnt really a big problem.

            We had a Queen Room which was a reasonable size but the bathroom was very compact. The maid service was good. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. We were disturbed at 4 in the morning by other thoughtless guests but a quick call to reception and it was soon sorted.

            It would have been nice to have coffee & tea facilities in the room. The hair dryer was not very good, and it would have been better if it was not in the bathroom.

            Nice and convenient, staff friendly" New York Style "Easy access to subway, shopping, museums and to attend business meetings uptown. The room was small but neat and clean. Bathroom supply was more than adequate for 2. Not for romantic honeymooner but great for our needs, family just around the corner on 80th and Columbus .

            The Park 79 hotel is ideally located a couple of blocks from central park west and has a nearby subway station, so getting to all of the manhattan attractions is easy. The hotel is simple and clean for a great city break, the staff are also extremely helpful.
