The first New York location from Dallas-based NYLO, this hotel is part of a chain but it has an appealing, boutique feel. The public areas blend into one another, the old-fashioned library and the 1920s-style LOCL bar sharing space with the piano lounge (where occasional jazz sessions make use of the bright red grand piano). The rooms have greyscale wood floors and a Scandi-chic look that’s heavy on the blond wood and minimalist design, although the beds, which rest on giant wooden wheels, are a playful touch. A branch of West Village hotspot Red Farm is on the ground floor, with an enticing bistro-style menu of modern Chinese fusion items like pastrami-stuffed eggrolls and bacon-and-egg fried rice. While the style draws a youthful clientele, the hotel is close to so many kid-friendly sights that it makes a good place for families to stay.
In the Area
On the Upper West Side, three blocks from food emporium Zabar’s and two from Central Park, the location of NYLO practically demands that you go on a picnic. (Fairway and Citarella, two other gourmet food havens, are also nearby). Museums are handily close: a five minute’s walk will get you to the massive American Museum of Natural History, with its iconic 94-foot-long model of a blue whale, as well as the Children’s Museum of Manhattan, featuring five floors of interactive exhibits that’s a must-visit for families. A couple of blocks to the west is Riverside Drive, perfect for afternoon strolls by the 79th Street Boat Basin marina. The neighborhood has a quiet, residential feel in the evenings, but your ticket to the action—the 79th St. subway stop–is just two blocks away.
How to Get There
I would consider it as 3,5 stars and overpriced. The room was dark, more lighting in the room is necessary. There is no refregirator in the room. The shower head was not working well, the water pressure was weak. They fixed it with a new shower head after my 2’nd complaint.
Very friendly staff. Clean and cozy room. Great location near to the Central Park and metro station. The only thing is that only one elevator worked when we stayed. We had to wait longer to get back to our room.
Just stayed at the NYLO for at least our fourth or fifth time. Always come back- great rooms, great location, reasonable price (for New York), easy access and in a good location. There are great restaurants in the area, and it's very walkable.
We love the hotel , this is our forth year staying there. The rooms are big and modernly decorated there is always bottles of water available for us in the room or at the hallway free of charge.
The hotel has a young atmosphere but it is not noisy.
The location is great few steps from the subway and the park. There are many shops and restaurant in the area.
Room was remodeled with plenty of space. Very comfortable. Staff extremely accommodating especially JESSIE! Jessie really helped us out. Thank you!!! Enjoyed a drink at the lovely bar complimentary from the Hotel. Also enjoyed having dinner at Serafina which is next door!
