Comfort Inn Central Park West New York Reviews
OK Hotel,Nice Neighbourhood Jan 27, 2010
Booked it as part of a deal with flight, so worked out about $75 a night which seemed fairly cheap for New York. Checked with a local TB about the area before booking it up.
The Comfort Inn Central Park West is located in a nice area a stones throw from the park, and just a block down from the Dakota Building and the Strawberry Fields enterance to Central Park. Close to two subway stations, 72nd Street/Central Park and 72nd Street/Broadway,which as the week went on I found easier for travelling,though it is slightly further away,the express trains mean you are only one stop to Times Square without having to change at 59th Street.
Able to check in as soon as I arrived, and they were fairly efficient and I got a room on 10th floor, though there are only about 8 rooms to a floor.
Room was small, and the bed took up most of the floor space, but it did have a free to use safe and an iron( like I would use that :D) and coffee making facilities as well as a TV. Bathroom to was small but adequate.Place did feel a bit dated however, but it would do as a place to lay my head, as for most days I was out about 9am and never back until after midnight.With a 24 hour reception there was never any hassle about coming and going at night.
Breakfast was served in a small dining area, at the back of hotel, I never bothered, but noticed a lot of folk coming up in the lift having grabbed some stuff and taking it back to their rooms. There was no bar in the hotel, but there were vending machines in a room beside the lift that sold soft drinks and snacks, and behind that was a room with some gym equipment.
There was a PC in the reception area for public use, but for some reason wifi for the room was restricted to three days. I never bothered with it any way, as with so many apartments round about I just got my phone to scan for a wifi connection and would always find one that wasn't password protected ;)
Nice quiet are, and coming out of hotel, and heading away from Central Park, you'll find a few local restaurants and bars on the corner of Columbus Ave. Keep walking another short block and your on Broadway where there are plenty of bars and food outlets.
If you are wanting supplies for your room, there is a decent supermarket a few minutes walk from the hotel called the Food Emporium on the corner of West 68th Street and Broadway.
Never had any problems with my stay in the Comfort Inn, and while not great it wasn't bad, and they were able to keep my bag for me after checking out,so I could have a last wander round the city.
