Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On the northern outskirts of the Upper West Side, the Broadway Hotel & Hostel is situated between two beautiful parks and about 13 blocks from the Columbia University campus.

The Broadway Hotel & Hostel's location provides entrance on a treelined residential street with immediate access to the shops and restaurants along Broadway -- plus a 24 hour convenience store on the corner.

Safe, residential, professional, and full of families, the Upper West Side is sandwiched between Manhattan's Central Park and Riverside Park. Beautiful low-rise brownstones blend with tall, swanky apartment buildings on the numbered streets that branch off Columbus Avenue, Amsterdam Avenue and Broadway, the area's major thoroughfares. Kid-friendly museums like the Children's Museum of Manhattan, the American Museum of Natural History, and the Hayden Planetarium make this a prime location for families looking to get away from the tourist crowds in Times Square.

  • Two blocks from the 1 subway line; five blocks from 2, 3 subway lines; seven blocks from the B, C subway lines
  • Five-minute walk to Central Park
  • 25-minute subway ride to Times Square
  • 35-minute subway/bus ride to the Empire State Building
  • 45-minute subway ride or $21 taxi to the ferry terminal to visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
  • 30-minute subway ride to Rockefeller Center
  • 25-minute walk or 35-minute subway/bus ride to the American Museum of Natural History
  • 30-minute bus ride or $8 taxi to the Metropolitan Museum of Art (the "Met") and 25-minute subway ride to the Museum of Modern Art (the "MoMa")

 Rooms

The Twin, Double, and Queen Private rooms are bare but clean, with flat-screen TVs, AC, and private bathrooms -- some with rainfall showerheads.

 Airport Transportation

About 30 to 90 minutes from three airports

New York has three nearby airports: JFK, LaGuardia, and Newark (in New Jersey). Getting to town from JFK or LaGuardia is usually more convenient than getting there from Newark, but travel times are heavily dependent on the time of day and traffic conditions. From JFK, a taxi to anywhere in Manhattan costs a flat rate of $45 and takes around an hour in average conditions. From LaGuardia, a metered cab ride to midtown Manhattan costs about $40 and can take 30 minutes if traffic is light, three times that if it's bad. Rides from Newark cost at least $40 (plus tolls) and can take more than 90 minutes. It's customary to tip your driver 15 to 25 percent.

Those looking to save some cash can use the privately run shuttle buses that are available at all three airports for about $14 per person. For more information on the shuttles, go to Super Shuttle or New York Airport Service. Public transit is also available for as little as $7 per person, but travel can take up to two hours and involve a lot of lugging bags up and down stairways.
