This six-story elevator building on the Upper West Side is a long way from most tourist destinations—although it is within walking distance of Columbia University and Central Park—but visitors enjoy Art Deco–inspired rooms that are a cut above typical hostel offerings. Fresh linens daily and TVs are standard. The hotel has a basement laundry facility and the front desk is open 24/7, so you can come and go as you please.
