    Great Budget Boutique Property on Upper West Side


    I booked this hotel, site unseen, using Priceline. I read lots of reviews first, felt somewhat secure and then I played "William Shatner"... I started low, and increased bid by $5 dollars until I secured the On The Ave Hotel for $115 per night. I was THRILLED! It was the right location (Upper West Side) and close to Buses and Subway service. Pretty good access from LGA airport too if you use public transport (M60 to #1 Subway).

    We chose the On The Ave because of its close proximity to the Beacon Theatre. It's only 1 1/2 blocks from the Beacon. It didn't hurt that the hotel is also less than 3 blocks to Central Park, the History Museum and the Dakota (where John Lennon lived and was shot.)

    The hotel staff were nice and efficient. The room was clean and fresh / modern looking. The bathroom sparkled with cleanliness. Water pressure was great and hot water was never an issue. Also, water drained well in the sink as well as in the bath/shower. Towels were fluffy. Rooms were quiet and there was very little street noise.

    Overall it is a great hotel for a great rate (if you can get it on Priceline) in a perfect location.

    Unique Quality: Location is everything and since we wanted to be close to the theatre and not in the heart of mid-town, this really worked for us. With the subway so close, you can be anywhere in the City in a matter of minutes.

    Directions: On 77th at Broadway, Upper West side

    Good for the money, but some glitches


    I stayed at On The Ave for a period of three consecutive weeks this last summer. The location was very convenient, especially for us since we were working in NJ and it was easier to jump on the Hudson Freeway to get over the George Washington Bridge. Since it's in an area that's a bit more residential it's not quite as crazy as staying in downtown or midtown, it's also pretty close to Central Park and not too far down Broadway that you can't walk to midtown.

    As far as the rooms are concerned, it was hit and miss. All rooms are decorated in that Metropolitan Home minimalist style (platform bed, white down comforter, you know the look) but depending on the room it could be in various states of wear and tear. I've found higher floors were usually much better appointed than lower floors (the hotel starts I think on the 5th floor, under that it's subsidized housing...) Also a lot of the rooms don't have any view at all, but rather a wall in front.

    The bathroom is probably the best part of the room, although sizes vary greatly. Toiletries are high end, the showers all had the proper pressure. There's room service from an external restaurant (during restaurant hours of course) and some rather skimpy vending at the top level

    The staff was courteous although not especially knowledgeable in some areas - I could never get anyone to turn on my high speed internet connection for example. Also, another disclaimer - the phone lines must be pretty old, because I could never get a speed over 28.8 on my modem.

    Overall, a good value if you are not expecting the Ritz - the one thing though, is it has gone up ever since. I was paying $119 to $129 over the summer, and these days (Dec 2003) they are advertising on the website (address below) for $179 as a special. At that price point, I would go the Beacon, 2 blocks away, which was renovated much more recently and has consistently bigger rooms) and where you can get a suite for that price, or a double room for $145 until March.

    Unique Quality: Great location, near Columbus Avenue restaurants and bars and near the subway

    Directions: Upper West Side

    a poor man's ian schrager


    On the Ave is a great hotel, done in the ian schrager style, but at a fraction of the price. The location is perfect, on the upper westside. The rooms are on the small side, but this is new york city, how much time are you going to spend in your room. The rate is usually under $200, which is very good for NYC. (beleive it or not)

    ON THE AVE hotel


    Around 200$ the night.

    Unique Quality: Well situated hotel (on Brodway and 5mn by walk from Central Park).
    For the breakfast, there's no restaurant in the hotel. But you can have a voucher for the restaurant in front of it which is open 24h/24h and typically american.

    Directions: At the corner of 77th street and Broadway.

No, you are not going to stay there unless you are enormously rich or / and famous... If in the early Sunday morning you see a tourist with one of the books about the City, wandering around Columbus Ave., she or he is, for sure, in a quest to find a famous Dakota.


by Wiley_Coyote

well, staying in NYC for cheap is no easy task...i really have no idea as i normally stay with friends or family in NYC...(i'm from brooklyn). anyway, this pic was taken from the 37th floor of the Hilton hotel on 6th ave looking at the Warwick hotel.

Hostel 104

by oznztofro about 1st Ave bvest hostel

I stayed at the 104 hostel on 1st ave near harlem. it was a great xp staying in a good hostel that gave us all free breakfast in the morning.

I had two sucky stays at chelsea int hostel & Highbridge House but this was the best hostel i had stayed at

I was in a 4 dorm with my own bathroom & i was together with a family from toronto. the day i left i gave them some vouchers i didnt get to use Dont let the fact that its near Harlems scare you. I saw no trouble at all. A local told me it was dangrous to be carrying my netbook around but i had to use it as a map.

The bus to the airport stops across the road. Ask for a transfer ticket & get on the bus on 125 st

The hotel we stayed at was the...

by Paula1971

The hotel we stayed at was the Best Western located at 210 55th Str. at 8th Ave. I chose this location because it turned out to be the cheapest for the area. It turned out to be a fluke. It was three blocks from Central Park, around the corner from David Letterman's studios, and within walking distance of fantastic shopping and restaurants.
As it turned out it was also on the same street as the famous 'Soup Nazi' from Seinfeld!!! The soup really is that good!!
We paid $99US per night for our room. It was incredibly cheap compared to the rest. I may have caught some kind of Manager's sale or something.

Arthur Ave

by jbel2879

Hi guys - I live here, but want your expert advice. What is everyone's favorite family-style Italian place on Arthur Ave. in the Bronx? When I say family-style, I mean like you order several really big dishes that the whole table shares. Let me know your thoughts - thanks! Julie

Suggest you try Frankie and Johnny's Pine Restaurant @1913 Bronxdale Avenue in the Bronx...Ma Kettle's uncles own it.
All the sports stars go there too.
