Average for NYC at Lower Price A review of Astor on the Park

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.

It's small and, despite photos to the contrary, not very chic. But it was very clean and the "renovation" I'd read about was done on the 5th floor where my room was. Sure it's a tiny room, but all amenities worked; the bed had a fine mattress and good linens; and the bathroom was above average.

The front desk staff was friendly. The hotel is just three blocks from a subway stop, and since it's on Central Park West, cabs are plentiful.

If you will be spending hours on end in your hotel room, this is not the place for you. But if you are on holiday and enjoying what NYC has to offer from morning til night, it's a great bargain.
