Located on the Upper West Side, this hotel is just a 10-minute walk from Central Park and away from the turbulence of Mid-town, but yet still an easy commute away. Even if one doesn't particularly enjoy museums, the nearby American Museum of Natural History is more than worth the 5 minute walk. Spread over 27 interconnected buildings and housing 45 permanent exhibition halls, there are so many fascinating things do to and see that one visit won't be enough. If some entertainment is needed the Lincoln centre of performing arts is just a 15-minute walk away and the surrounding area offers fantastic shopping facilities and a myriad of dining choices. The recently refurbished boutique hotel welcomes its guests to 250 rooms spread over 16 floors. On its last floor there is a green patio retreat, where one can relax while enjoying stunning views of the city.
