On the far Upper West Side. You won't find many other hotels in the area but there are a number of good restaurants and you are close to a quieter section of Central Park.
The hotel has 127 renovated guest rooms with colorful walls and curtains, Mediterranean artwork, exposed brick walls, European linens, flatscreen TVs, iPod docking stations and Ecco bath amenities. Bathrooms are a bit cramped but cute.
The lobby is overflowing with color. Moroccan lamps, ottomans and ceramic tiles work in tandem to create a faux Moroccan experience.
Eating and drinking
The Kazbar Lounge is a great place to unwind with a glass of wine or a draft beer. It's also Moroccan in theme.
The hotel doesn't have a fitness center or spa.
Service is a bit spotty at times. But the friendliness of the staff makes up for that.
