... a detour around the crash site and get off the bus as close as we could to get to the subway and then home. After dinner we took a short walk to the Dakota Hotel which was the site of the shooting of John Lennon in 2000. We then went to Strawberry Fields area in Central Park and saw the place that Yoko Ono dedicated a memorial to her late husband.
... for Lufthansa, so I asked someone in a queue, while Ron just went to the front of the queue and asked the official. I joined the queue and there was no sign of Ron, but he came along with his information. Absolutely hopeless! Then, they had to offload luggage as people hadn't got on the plane. I wonder why! We were 30 minutes late leaving, which meant we were very tight in Frankfurt. Thank goodness for German efficiency. ...
... Unfortunately for Clay, when we arrived we found out that visitors are no longer allowed to go inside the building. He at least got to see the building and walk down the infamous Wall Street though. After walking no less than five miles today, we were thrilled to finally make it to the pier where we would catch the 90 minute ride along the Hudson River. We had a wonderful cruise around Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and under ...
... It is way too crazy and people will not hesitate to hit you. I sort of had to laugh at the “Don’t Block the Box” signs since it seems that is all people do followed by honking and aggravation as if to blame the drivers in front of them for their predicament. Surely the police will see the obvious absurdity and not fine them. LOL.
Our hotel The Renaissance Hotel 57 was right near the corner of 57th and ...
... greater then the distance between 2 blocks. Enroute to the Park I made a pitstop at the famous Times Square, New Yorks Disneyland of flashing lights. The Square is thronged day & night with gawkers and tourists (me) desperate to glimpse the visual feast that are the massive video screens advertising shows, retail outlets and products a plenty. Despite the constant jostling with the thousands of punters in this smallish triangular area, you must ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Park Savoy New York City
Great place. gerat price
I would just like to say that the Park Savoy was GREAT! I was seriously sooo scared about the place cuz it was so cheap and then we saw it and it was great. Anyone thinking about this hotel. it's cheap, clean, and safe....what else do u need?
I doubt you could find a better hotel for the same price in a better location. It was very clean and I felt very safe here. The rooms are small, but who wants to spend time in their hotel room when in New York? I plan to stay here every time I come to NYC!
Small Rooms but GREAT Hotel for a Low Price
Great location; clean rooms; VERY clean bathrooms. Small rooms but comfortable. Bathrooms have showers only. I visit NYC twice a year and always stay at the Park Savoy. I've never been let down. For $100, it's the perfect place for anyone who doesn't require luxury, but expects comfort, cleanliness and location. And their rates stay consistent year-round, unlike many other NYC hotels that jump over $200 in busy seasons.
As everyone says it's a very good deal (clean, good location), but unlike others we had a very small room with a dito bathroom, which was ok for a few days. I can immagine that "bigger" people face difficulties in this particular room.
My husband and I just returned from an overnight at the Park Savoy Hotel. For $100 a night, we had a clean queen-sized room in an exceptional location. I will definitely return to the Park Savoy again.
The staff was pleasant and cheerful and the area is very safe for walking at night. Lots of people walking around, lots of places open late into the night. The price, location and quality of the accommodations are unbeatable. It's not The Plaza, but at $100 a night, it's a steal!
Great tourist hotel
We stayed at the Park Savoy 7 nights in March 2003. I echo the other reviews. Our room had two double beds and a small bathroom with shower only. The room was clean, the beds comfortable and not run down at all.
The bathroom was black and white tile and was spotless also. Although it did not have a lot of creature comforts, it was in an excellent location, two blocks south of Central Park and one block from the subway. Easy walking distance to just about anything. Price averaged $90 per night, a bargain in Manhatten. We will stay there again next trip!
Stayed for a week in March 2003. Was excellent value for money. Breakfast was pastries or bagels, and tea or coffee (included in the price). Stayed in a queen room which had plenty of room. Was very clean. Only thing was the room had no hair dryer. Would strongly recommend it to anyone wanting a nice comfortable place to stay. Its basic but nice!! The location was excellent, right in the centre of everything, only about a ten minute walk to times square! And one block from central park!
Small but happy at park savoy
After traveling 11 hrs on a bus ANY hotel would look good but I did find a great suprise when our taxi pulled in front of the Park Savoy Hotel. For once a hotel looked JUST like it did in their pictures!! From the entrance, to the stairs, and the rooms all appeared to have no hidden suprises! The price also upheld what I was told. I ended up paying on 99 dollars a night which included tax and breakfast for four people for 5 nights!!! Great price huh?!?! There was only two things I did not care for that much. The first being the beds. They ae NOT beds for someone with a bad back! They tend to be hard (but after walking the NYC streets you really don't care to much were you sleep as long as your not on your feet!!!) And the second being the bathroom. Along with the size (pretty small) it got EXTREMELY hot when taking a shower. About half way through each shower I had to open the door to the bathroom to get some air!
Aside from these two things you will not find a better hotel in NYC for a person on a budget. It sits across from some of the "big expensive" hotels and it only a few blocks from places such as the Plazza Hotel, 5th Ave shopping, Tavern on the Greens, and the Russian Tea room.
My second surpise is when I found I was ni WALKING distance to Times Square!!! Only about 6 blocks!!!!! Also, you can't forget Central Park is only ONE block, and the same goes for the subway station.
If you tried to find a hotel that offered this convenience, price, and location in NYC it would be around 400 to 600 a night!! I would recommend this hotel for anyone who comes to NYC to have some fun and not pay to much!
Simple Nights, Complex Days
The Park Savoy is not for the rich, the famous, or the stuffy. It is a simple place in a great location. Enjoy the complexity of New York in the day and the evening; sleep simply and comfortably at night.
We love the Park Savoy Hotel. Every year we stay there and have come to love its funky charm! A great deal at a great price one block from Central Park - what more could you want!
