Great location - look for some other place to stay
Posted Dec 9, 2011 on Hotels
We loved the Upper West Side. It feels like a 'true' neighborhood with lot of good restaurants and bars. The location of the Brownstone is perfect. You are at walking distance from everything, Central Park, the Guggenheim Museum and the Subway. But....
The Brownstone shouldn't be classified as a hotel and not even a Bed with no Breakfast. It is an apartment rental. You won't get any kind of service during your stay. The apartment has the potential to be nice, but it is dirty, very dirty. And it should not be rented to groups over two people. The couch that should serve as the third bed is sagging badly. The solution to this problem? A cheap air mattress, not exactly what we were expecting. We wish someone had told us. We would have never booked it. The place was not expensive for this time of the year, but be warned....you get what you pay for. Our suggestion for travelers on a limited budget would be to choose a different period of the year to visit NYC and look for a different place to stay in the same neighborhood. This was the best part of the deal.
