Riverside Tower Hotel

Charming, Safe, & Central Location

At the Riverside Tower Hotel, we know that when you visit Manhattan, the last thing you’ll be doing is spending your time in a hotel room.

We provide you with a comfy, quiet and safe place to leave your luggage and rest up for a long day of exploring the best of New York City.

We’re located on the corner of West 80th Street and Riverside Drive, on the beautiful Upper West Side. Our location puts you within walking distance from many quintessential New York City landmarks such as Central Park, the American Museum of Natural History and Lincoln Center.

Manhattan is a shopper’s paradise, with countless shops, boutiques and department stores. If you’re looking to stick close to the Upper West Side, check out Columbus Avenue. Also near our location is Century 21, known as “New York’s Best Kept Secret,” where you can find designer duds at a fraction of the cost. Hone your inner haggler when you take on the streets of Chinatown, or your inner hipster and explore the shops in SoHo. Of course, you should pay a visit to iconic stores like Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s Herald Square, and don’t forget to stroll down 5th Avenue to the legendary Tiffany & Co. For an in-depth shopper’s guide to Manhattan, click here.

If you’re wanting award-winning and cutting-edge, there are plenty of top-notch restaurants offering fresh new cuisines (find a comprehensive guide for those here). If you’re looking for something a little more low-key, something a little more like the “typical foods” that come to mind when you think of NYC, check out these nearby recommendations:

  • Zabar’s (Bagels): Excellent bagels and lox from a true Manhattan staple, just one block away.
  • Barney Greengrass (Deli): This deli on the Upper West Side has been a NYC institution for over 100 years.

  • Junior’s Cheesecake: Seriously, good cheesecake.
  • Katz’s Delicatessen: Established in 1888, this family-run deli in the Lower East Side is well worth the trip.
