Hot on the west side

Posted Jun 1, 2011
Arrived at the brownstone and had no difficulty cotacting the owner. Moved our bags into the unit and noted that the weather had warmed up-summer had returned. Was told that an air conditioning unit waqs to be placed into the window either today or tommorrow. We were told that a fan would be delivered but it never came. The loft bed of couse was totally uninhabitable but luckilly there was an air matress in the main room which we utilized sleeping beneath the ceiling fan. The owner left us a message after we checked out apologizing but at Mannhattan rates one expects more.

Excellent bed and breakfast

Posted May 15, 2011 on Hotels.com
Although the Upper West Side Brownstone is listed on hotels.com, it is actually a bed and breakfast. I really enjoyed my stay, but be aware of a few items when booking this b&b: 1) the 'full breakfast' is not provided - instead, there is an excellent small kitchen where you can do all of your own cooking, and coffee is provided but not other breakfast foods, and 2) although hotels.com will send you an email saying your reservation is confirmed, you must call the landlord and indicate what time you are arriving. The Upper West Side brownstone is a very attractive apartment in a residential building, but you will need to meet with the landlord in order to receive a key to the building and room. Besides those two issues, I felt the apartment was a good value in an excellent neighbourhood, and the apartment had a lot of character with a cool spiral staircase up to the bed. The Museum of Natural History is literally across the street, with the Hayden Planetarium entrance just across from the crosswalk and the main entrance down the block and around the corner. There is an Uno restaurant right at the corner of the block and several other restaurants and groceries nearby.
