Ok, so where did we leave you last time? I believe we were still in NYC.....We are not there now. We finished off NY with a few classics......We took the Statten Island ferry over the water to see the statue of liberty for free! Which was awesome.....and free. We walked Brooklyn Bridge. We got more subways. We went to The Met (Museum) which I would …
To start at the beginning, we arrived. JFK was quite easy to navigate considering, we got the Airtrain into Jamaica St Station (Queens!!) and then after a bit of shuffling with the ******n ticket machine we were on the Subway. We got two subways through Queens and midtown Manhattan until finally arriving (lagging by …

This hotel was clean and very reasonable price. It isn't fancy and the rooms aren't large, but it met my needs perfectly. The room I had was only really a bed and bathroom, but I barely spent any time there anyway. It would be nice if they had free WiFi. That would be my only issue. It was close to the subway and also had a few corner stores close by to get supplies. It is right across the street from Central Park so that was nice too. The staff were friendly and and helpful. The area was quiet and clean. I will stay here again for sure.

Historical Traveler Reviews Astor on the Park New York City
Astor on the Park, located on Central Park West, was a delightful boutique hotel located directly across the street from Central Park. My best friend and I spent four nights there enjoying the city. For the money - in New York City - it was more than adequate! It was clean and quaint. The rooms were small, but the bed was comfortable and clean. The bathroom was newly remodeled, the towels large and typical hotel toiletiers were provided (including a shower cap, which was nice). It's close to two subway stations, there's a great little grocery/deli down the street where we got 2 bagels and 2 cups of really good coffee for $4 - best deal in town. One night the elevator was broken, but they fixed it right away. We had read reviews of this hotel before we went that made us nervous, but it turned out great! It's not the Ritz, but you only sleep and shower in the room when you're in a city like NYC. I'd go back.
Just returned from a 4-night stay and had a pretty good experience. Our priority was cleanliness, and the Astor did well on this front -- the renovation seems mostly complete, and our room was newly painted, bath was very clean, nice towels, sheets, and comforter (however, the paint was of the didn't-bother-to-remove-the-light-switch-covers variety, so it lacks aesthetic appeal). The room was very, very small and did mean living out of suitcases on the floor (of which there was little). We mostly wanted a clean place to sleep while we explored the city, thus we were statisfied. (And, for what it's worth, we found the staff helpful, and friendly -- though we didn't have much need of them, so not many interactions to go on). They did get us a non-smoking room.
Considering that it's now almost impossible to book a decent NYC hotel room for less than $250 US per night, I jumped at the $184 rate at a last minute travel website for a weekend stay. And the hotel is exactly what I expected for that price.
Surprised at bad reviews...we loved it!
I was concerned about this hotel after reading some of the negative reviews, but was extremely pleased with the room! We walked into a small but friendly lobby and got great service. Our room was clean and quite nice, including the bathroom. Everything looked new. I requested (ahead of time) and got a room with 2 clean, nicely made up, comfortable full size beds, which can be difficult in NYC. No problems whatsoever. Really enjoyed the stay!
For the money, which we only paid about $96 a night, it was an OK option. If I had paid anymore I would have been sorely disappointed. The room was very small, but we were only sleeping there. We had a park view which was nice. The bathroom was reasonable and clean. We did not have a closet, but had to live out of suitcases on the floor. The "renovation" must have still been in progress, as our room had paint chips and drips all over the carpet. No Cable TV, NO Wireless Internet and NO Continetal Breakfast as advertised on a website...
BUT it is only 3 blocks from the subway!
Wouldn't go back, but it could have been worse!
Don't be fooled by any positive reviews of this hotel. This place is a dive. Until a few weeks ago, it was a shelter for homeless women and children, and the renovations have not done anything to improve the place. The staff are unfriendly, confused and generally incompetent. The lobby has been carefully photographed to look like a cozy boutique hotel...but photos are deceptive. One woman checking in ahead of us was crying because the experience was so bad and staff had to go check her room to make sure no one was already in there! My husband, who is a cop, swears a woman we passed on the stairs was a prostitute. Another guest had just finished repairing the elevator for the staff. The "marble" stairs were cracked and dangerous. The hallways were institutional. The room was a shoebox with vomit colored paint on the wall and windows that offer no soundproofing whatsoever. Bedding was a thin blanket and scratchy sheets on a board for a bed. While the bathroom was adequate, the shower leaked water through a glass partition that was not secure. The tiny closet had no rail in it, so we couldn't even hang up our clothes. We stayed one night, but after only two hours of sleep, called our travel agent and insisted we move to a different hotel. We then spent five wonderful nights at the Omni Berkshire. Don't try to save money. It's not worth it. And at $290 a night, the Astor was no bargain anyway.
Disgusting. Pure disgusting!
This hotel boasts wonderful amenities and rooms, but it was horrid. The hotel is half way open, and apparently undergoing a renovation. I use the term renovation loosely because I was told I had a renovated room - well, it was filthy, uncomfortable and the furniture resembled a dump. Go elsewhere, anywhere but here!
I arrived at Astor on the Park a couple of days after opening. The reception area was fine (as in the pictures) but when I got to my room, there was no duvet/cover on the bed, the carpet was full of paint marks and the wardrobe was placed right in front of the window! Strange I thought!- not that there was much of a view anyways. When I originally saw this hotel advertised. it was claimed as 'Home away from Home' - hmmm anything but! I asked to change rooms and the room I got was slightly better. Clean and comfortable, rooms were made up every day with fresh towels etc. If you are in NY you don't spend much time in your hotel room then this is was perfect, but if you are wanting a few more luxuaries away from home then I would not suggest it. There was no fridge, tea or coffee making facilities and certainly no room service. There is a little shop down the block but not all that much to choose from. To be honest I would have spent an extra $50US a night to be more central with a few more luxuaries for the price.
This hotel is just average. We paid $200 a night because we went during high season in NY and everything else was already booked.
Warm, clean and comfortable, what more could you need? At the rates they charge, this is an excellent hotel, right on the park and easy reach of Museum of Natural History, a must see. Breakfast is continental and fresh, serve yourself before heading of to NY, wow. I enjoyed my stay in Jan 2002, enough to write this review 2 years later :)Matt
