About Comfort Inn Central Park West
Central Park is Manhattan’s backyard: 843 acres of lush greenery, magnificent sculptures, ponds, birds and other wildlife, winding pathways and the only zoo on the island. It’s one of the true treasures of the city, and guests of the Comfort Inn Central Park West are just steps from this oasis.
The Comfort Inn Central Park West is located on a quiet tree-lined block between stately Central Park West and bustling Columbus Avenue. The building’s handsome white exterior wraps around 92 rooms spread out over 12 floors. The lobby has a single-station business center with pay-as-you-go Internet service, otherwise Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel.
Guests have their choice of rooms with one king, one queen, one double or a room with a double and a twin bed – perfect for those traveling with children. Rooms are basic, but come with flat-screen TVs, hairdryers, safes and ironing boards. Mini-refrigerators and rollaway beds can be borrowed by request, depending on availability.
A full American breakfast is served every morning with waffles, eggs, bacon, sausage, breakfast pastries, cereal, oatmeal and fruit. Coffee and tea is available in the breakfast room 24/7.
Did you know?
The Dakota, located on the northwest corner of Central Park West and 72nd Street, might be best known as the spot where John Lennon was shot, but the building has also been home to the likes of Leonard Bernstein, Judy Garland, Roberta Flack and Gilda Radner, and is the setting for the classic horror film Rosemary’s Baby.
Central Park's "Strawberry Fields" is a 2.5-acre memorial to John Lennon, directly across from Lennon’s beloved Dakota.
Crime buffs may want to check out the exterior of the Majestic, located at 115 Central Park West. It was once home to gangsters Meyer Lansky and Lucky Luciano. Unlucky Frank Costello was shot (though not fatally) in the Majestic's lobby by Vincent “The Chin” Gigante.
Historians, amateur and otherwise, should spend a few hours at the New-York Historical Society, located a few blocks north at 77th and Central Park West.
There is no onsite restaurant, though a complimentary full American breakfast is served each morning in a small dining area off the lobby. Coffee and tea are also available here 24/7.
The Comfort Inn Central Park West doesn’t offer room service, but there are plenty of dining options just steps away on Columbus Avenue.
