Training session #1 is done and the bonding process has begun. The mentors met first for some great training prep facilitated by Jen and Jay. Then the peers arrived and we dove right into the training. ("Mentors" meaning those of us who are no longer in high school and "peers" meaning those who are still in high school.) I had no idea that Chelsea Piers has staff members specializing in Leadership and ...
... closed. Somehow we were still alive, and sitting in front of our hotel. I think Donna threw cash in the front, and we bailed out the doors. Now that we survived the ride to the hotel we're four hours early for check-in. I think we both really looked bad, because the girl at the desk gave us a room without batting an eye. Thank you God, and give her a major Christmas bonus. We got off the elevator on the 36th floor to find our floor overlooking Ground Zero. ...

I'd better not say then); however, what accounting is is a fairly universal language that is shared between cultures. Sure, the Sumerians did accounting before Luca Pacioli invented double-entry bookkeeping, and therefore, their accounting looks ...
... in some public soft core porn. It was pretty hard to ignore. Due to the bank holiday, we felt we should go out so Simon, Susan, jono (the kiwi) and I ended up drinking margaritas at a gay Mexican bar! We started to ask riddles and made sure we were all not psychopaths with some psychological tests. It was really good fun but we called it a night at around 1 and left the many wasted customers 'dancing' and falling over around the pub! I am so glad that I came back to New York. ...

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!
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!
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!
