Convenient for Harlem business

I was a tad concerned after reading some of the reviews, but we had an issue-free visit. My dad loved the pillows, but did feel profiled the second evening when we were asked if we were guests after coming in from scorching temps. Housekeeping staff was friendly and quick to respond to requests. Would stay here again!

What's New at This Zoo

If you want a vacation in NYC that allows you to walk to famous restaurants, entertainment, and museums this is the place. You will be within walking distance to Sylvia's, the Apollo, and Studio Museum in Harlem, the nexus for artists of African descent locally, nationally and internationally and for work that has been inspired and influenced by black culture. But, the real reason to choose this hotel is the access to public parks. Morningside park has an awesome playground. Marcus Garvey is historic and the famous Central Park Zoo is a short ride away. And it is a short distance to the Bronx Zoo. You could say it is between the Zoos.

Great Hotel in Harlem, New York

Pros: The staff and people staying at the hotel. Quite clean and easy to manage around the facility. The staff answered questions with useful information.
Location: It was close to Columbia University- Teachers College within walking distance. Close to 125th street -lots of venders. Great restaurants in area.
The staff was so helpful, nice, and amazingly friendly. The room was clean and the facility was pleasant. The hotel was centrally located to reach other parts of town easily. Cab service was most accessible. The breakfast menu can be improved.
