Historical Traveler Reviews NYLO New York City
The rooms are small but comfortable and well set up. The hotel has a pleasant modern style and the neighborhood feels safe. We parked our car (with out of state tags) on the street with no problems. The staff was polite and helpful. The rates are reasonable for NYC. I'd definitely stay at On The Ave again.
The moment we arrived there we felt the brialliant atmosphere and the service of the people were ace all in all it was one of the most delightful hotels I have had the pleasure of staying at. It was the best by far.
Never stay any place else!
I first discovered On The Ave a few years ago when friends came back from a trip and mentioned this great place they stayed at on the upper west side. They lavished nothing but praise for this hotel. They loved everything from the staff to the room to the bathroom amenities. I was skeptical at first...then I saw the web site. It appeared to be everything they said so for my next trip I booked a room. I was not disappointed! On The Ave was everything they said it would be and more. I would encourage anyone to give it a try. You will not be sorry. I have been back many times and have never had anything but great stays.
On The Ave...NYC's Best Kept Secret
If you are looking to stay in NYC at a 4 star hotel at 2 & 3 star prices look no further. My husband and I were guests this past weekend and we had the time of our lives. The room we had was so clean and everything from the bedspread to the pictures on the walls was done in such good taste. There was these bathroom amenities that even matched the decor of the bathroom. The shampoo and conditioner was the best I had ever used. I had asked if I can buy it from a retail store but the housekeeper said it was made in Australia exclusively for the hotel. She must have seen the disappointed look on my face and gave me a couple of bottles to take home with me. The hotel staff was super friendly and courteous. I will definitley go back to stay at On The Ave.
Not bad at all!
We had the pleasure of staying at On The Ave for one night this past New Years Eve. Despite our unannounced arrival several hours prior to normal check-in time, the staff was very courteous and we were in our room very quickly! I booked through the internet for much less than the going rate, but we were still treated very nicely.
We were given a non-smoking corner room with two windows on the 9th floor (I had previously requested a high floor). The room was a bit small, but reasonably nice. The modern decor was neat, but almost seemed outdated. The bed was comfortable, and everything in the room worked fine.
That evening, I went to get some ice to chill the champagne, but the machine was empty. I immediately called the front desk, and the gentleman aplogized for the inconvience, and indicated that they were aware of the problem, and that repair had been requested, but that in all honesty, it was not likely that a serviceman would be coming out on New Years Eve to repair it. He indicated that there was a store just across the street that had ice. I appreciated his candor, and ended the call. Not two minutes later, there was a knock at the door. It was a bell-boy with a full bucket of ice! I was so flabergasted that I forgot to tip him! (but I took care of him the next day).
We checked out early the next morning, but our flight was not until late afternoon. Even before I asked, the clerk asked me if we would like for them to keep our bags until we were ready to depart!
After checking out and having breakfast at the nice diner next door, I remembered that I wanted to check-in for our flights over the Internet. We stopped by the hotel to asked if there was a nearby Internet Cafe where I could check in for our flight, and the manager immediated whisked me into a back room to use the PC at his personal desk. He cleared his desk, verified connectivity, told me to help myself, and left the room! Again, I was flabergasted!
At every opportunity, the staff of On The Ave went above the call of duty, and for that reason alone, I would definitely stay there again.
We arrived late (1am) on a Thursday and it took them 40 minutes to help us and a further hour and a half to find our booking-their fault-for which they didn't apologise.
The room was small and not nearly as nice as advertised-such an awful start to a brilliant holiday.
On the ave
i loved the way the rooms were decorated... very stylish. everything was very clean and comfortable. our room faced Broadway and was surprisingly quiet.
Very pleasant stay
Stayed in mid-Oct. 2002 for a total of 4 nights and enjoyed my stay very much. Hotel is very stylish, quiet and discreet. Rooms can vary from very small standard rooms to spacious penthouse rooms with balconies and views - worth it if you can spend a little more. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Decor is modern, minimalist style and the comfy beds have very unusual wooden "canopies". Bathrooms are huge for NY; very clean and smartly done in stainless steel and marble and slate tiles. The pics on their website represent the most deluxe rooms available, but even the standard rooms are nice, albeit very small. The neighborhood is quietly residential and offer good restaurants, supermarket, drugstore, etc. Subway is a short 2 blocks away and the restaurant across the street delivers for free 24 hours a day. I would definitely stay there again!
On the Ave is a decent hotel right on 77th and Broadway. The subway stop is convenient, only 2 blocks away. The neighborhood is safe and convenient. A series of small market produce stands are about 1 block away.
Some rooms are different than others. My friend got a shower/tub, bathrobes and a bit more room. My room has a shower with no tub and no bathrobe. No big deal.
The previous review commented on the thin white curtains letting light in. I believe they missed a slightly consealed shade for the window. Now there's no worries on drunken morning slumbers!
I would stay here again.
Small, clean, good neighborhood
On The Ave is a splendid base of operations for a Manhatten visit. Upper West Side, convenient to subway (79th St. station) and surrounded by several quality eateries, best of which is Big Nick's Burger & Pizza Joint. A better breakfast you will not find in NYC.
Hotel itself: new-ish renovation in a decidedly funky, ultra-modern style. Lobby is spacious, with concierge and bellmen. Standard rooms are on the small side, but comfortable and clean. Curtains are thin and white, however, meaning sleep during daytime might be out of the quetion. Bathroom is stylish stainless steel, good quality amenities. Hair dryer provided. Nice towels. Bed is firm with excellent feather comforter. Walls somewhat thin, advise avoiding rooms near the elevators.
Paid $99 per night in early September, booked through discount hotel web site.
Good value overall.

The most horrendous flight yet! Getting up and out of the insanely comfortable trump beds at 3am, onto the smallest airplane seats for four hours of turbulence. A much needed beer at the airport and finally arriving at our hotel, NYLO. We were greeted with a glass of champagne and a free upgrade - thank god for Chris on reception ! Day one; a walk …
... t really like the ice skating because I seemed to just fall over and make a fool of myself the whole time. After 1 hour of skating around trying to impress the ladies I gave up and decided to walk home.
I was so exhausted that it took me 30 minutes to walk back to the hostel. When I got back I decided to hop into bed and write this entry. I enjoyed day 1 and looking forward to tomorrow. Good night ...
... throughout for cans and bottles. There were crowds of people around Times Square all bumping into one another. There were people dressed up as Mickey Mouse, Batman, Transformers, Sesame Street characters and the Statue of Liberty on every other street corner. There was a naked cowboy playing his guitar (not quite naked - underpants only) and a naked cowgirl similarly clad but you wouldn't have been wrong in ...
... of the busy city. My heart broke for a man that stood beside the memorial with tears on his cheeks. I wondered if it was his wife, child, brother or friend that died that day. I was thankful too that such a beautiful memorial was erected for survivors to honor their loved ones. Today was open call for several agencies, so that was our next stop. We began with New York Model Management. Clay and Tommy found a cigar bar across the street to occupy their ...
... we were riding backwards. There were only a few seats facing forward apparently but they were taken. It was not bad going backward but I was hoping for a view of the NY skyline as we approached the city so when we got to Philly the people next to us got off the train and vacated their forward facing seats. So we switched but then realized that for some reason the train had now switched directions!! Luckily the seats we chose had both forward ...
