A ways up Broadway from Columbus Circle in a quieter part of the Upper West Side, this inviting hotel is just two blocks from the Natural History Museum, on the way to Central Park. On the other side, the water is a couple of blocks away, including a yacht marina. Be sure to check out the nearby Banksy while you are out. The 79 St subway station is two blocks up the street.
