Great location

Pros: location
Cons: took a while for the water to warm up and I hate getting a room that faces a wall.
I have stayed here many times and I like the rooms and the location. When I book on discount travel sites and get the cheaper rates the hotel tries to give me a room facing a wall or with almost no sunlight.

Dear Stuart, Great to hear that you enjoy our convenient location in the Upper West Side. However, I'm so sorry about the issues you had controlling the water temperature. I'm sorry too that your most recent room was not what you expected. We will be looking up your guest profile to make a note of your preferences—I understand a brighter room with a view is a priority for you, so we'll do our best to welcome you back to a room you'll find more comfortable going forward. Warm regards, Connie

Location and Conveniences a plus

Pros: Room cleanliness, staff, location
Location: Beacon Theater, Subway line 2 blocks away to get downtown, restaurants
The fact that the NYLO is two blocks from #1 subway line, has a CVS across the street (open 24 hrs). for snacks and needs, UPS Store, Staples and Marshal's and a variety of restaurants within walking distance made my active 3 night stay perfect. I loved the lobby lounges /bar to relax or have fun. The staff were all professional and helpful. Next time I'll check the calendar for the nearby Beacon Theater. This older building has remodeled rooms with stainless steel and simplistic enclosed cubbies rather than dressers. I had a king bed with ample floor space. The only drawback for some may be the lack of counter space in a bathroom with only a single sink, but good lighting and modern tile and shower. The attached Serafina restaurant was excellent food served all meals and delivered to the rooms. I definitely will stay there again.

Great style and location

The location was great. Near the park and Broadway. It is between two subway stations for a quick ride to any other site. Plenty of places to eat and things to see. I also loved the style of my room. The air conditioner was rather loud. But this was a perfect way to cover the noise of the city. A happy accident. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Wish I could give *more* than a 5

Pros: Quiet, clean, warm vibe ... taxi and subway right there. Economical for NYC. Cool bar and "library" room. Ideal home base to explore city!
Cons: Nothing worth noting.
Location: Upper west side: Columbia U,St. John the Divine, Beacon Theatre, amazing French pastry shops. Convenient to museums and all midtown attractions.
Some folks don't have NYC hotel experience. We do. It is tricky to find a hotel that is not noisy, with a decently sized room and a convenient location. The NYLO has all this and more . We could access Central and Riverside Parks, museums, the wonderful, historic Beacon theatre. We saw a major rock band (Steely Dan) play there ... 3 blocks from the hotel. No problem with a Fire station being nearby ... to occasionally see big red truck 40 pull in and out. Hotel had funky, warm, friendly vibe. Staff was usually prompt and courteous. Our 12th floor room was clean, modern and perfectly quiet. Could not have been more comfortable and better pleased with our choice of the NYLO. Four thumbs up!

Close to great shops and restaurants.

Pros: I enjoyed having a light on the headboard for reading so I didn't have to get up and really liked the bed. Wonderful sleep.
Cons: Water ran out from under shower door onto bathroom floor. Maybe a new 'sweep' at bottom of door would help.
NYLO is a lovely hotel with the best mattresses ever. Nice location within walking distance to good restaurants and attractions. Staff was pleasant and helpful.

Always a great stay

Pros: Locale, decor, comfort
Cons: Bar could be better staffed (need more and table service would be great!) and stocked (no blood marys because they didn't have tomatoe juice).
Location: Close to Central Park, Museum of Natural History, Lincoln Center, great restaurants along Columbus, subway station on 72nd, Beacon Theater
My husband and I discovered this "gem" a couple of years ago and have returned several times. This time I visited with my mom and sisters and we squeezed in to a double room - we were pleasantly surprised at the amount of storage the room provided - plenty of room for our 4 suitcases to be spread out and little cubbies to hold even more of our stuff. The beds are always super comfortable and the rooms are quiet. The bar is always one of our favorite hang outs, but must admit it felt a bit understaffed this trip. Can't beat the locale - close to park, subway, Lincoln Center and many great places to eat.

Clean hotel with cool vibe

If your checklist includes a clean hotel with a laidback vibe, great UWS location a few blocks off central park at a reasonable price, then the Nylo is your hotel. Comfy beds, contemporary design and a welcoming lobby that includes a cool bar completes the experience. We stayed during NYE with our kids and it proved to be the perfect spot for their first trip to NYC.

Great location for why we were there

Pros: Ramona at the front desk was a sweetheart! She did everything she could do to make it right.
Cons: They seem to be a bit understaffed. Response time to requests made by calling to front desk was non existent. Shaun didn't deliver the fan he promised
We actually really liked the hotel. Good vibe, adequate accommodations, good location for our visit's purposes. But the AC never really worked in our room, and when we asked for it to be checked out we had to call 3 times and then complain in person to get ANY response. They finally delivered a fan to our room after our 4th complaint and failing to deliver it after our 3rd complaint. And the bar was understaffed. Service was very slow.

Modern appeal that delivers well

Love this place - we stayed here last year and didn't hesitate to return. Locale is convenient - close to park, museums, subway and any amenity that you need. Rooms are just the right size and are appropriately finished. The bar here is one of our favorites - aleays friendly and knowledgeable bartenders and an option of sitting arrangements. We will rerun again.
