Best Hotels to Stay Near and See NYC’s Most Famous 843 Acres

When it comes to choosing Central Park NY Hotels, there are options for all types of travelers and most budgets. Way too many typical hotel websites will tell you a hotel is near Central Park, when in fact, it is several subway stops away. Since NYC is so dense, the term "near" usually means less than a 10 minute walk.

Central Park is bound by 59th St (aka Central Park South) to 110th St (south to north) and Central Park West to 5th Avenue (from west to east). My hand picked hotels are divided into two categories: those ON Central Park, meaning one of the 3 southern boundaries, or those within a 5 minute walk. For a visual view, download our Free Printable NYC Guide which includes a Central Park Map and review our free insider guide to Central Park.
