    Upper West Side
    Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
    Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
    quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
    downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
    city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
    American Museum of Natural History, which has been
    welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
    over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,

    We used bookingcom and got a room for 199 but it did go up to around 230 I guess after the surcharge. Still wouldn't complain as they upgraded us to a suit that was lovely.

    You have two options ... Uber or Taxi charge is about 42.00 usd .... or the subway which is time consuming . The hotel will not have a shuttle

    Yes they do but you have to reserve them by calling the front desk. They will also charge you per night . I do not know the price per roller bed.
