|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Located on the 2nd floor of a wonderful 1890's brownstone with old-world details, this newly renovated one bedroom apartment offers the best of both worlds.
Bright, sunny and overlooking a courtyard, this apartment is quiet and perfect for two people. The layout is an open kitchen/living room and a separate bedroom with a queen-sized bed and lots of closet space. Its details include high ceilings, crown moldings, original tile, a (non-working) fireplace, a crystal chandelier in the living room, a marble bath, high end kitchen appliances and wood floors throughout.
Walk out your doorstep and to the heart of the much-desired Upper West Side. Central Park is only one block away, the culture of Lincoln Center is a 10 minute walk, and lively restaurants, cafes, and boutique and gourmet shops abound. Easily accessible to the B, C, 1, 2, and 3 subway lines.

My daughter and I loved this apartment. Such a quiet street but close to the park and amenities. We loved the high ceilings and wood floors and the bed was super comfortable! After a long day out, it was always lovely to come home to our own quiet space to unwind. Would love to come again...
Charming, charming , and charming! It's a beautiful old Brownstone yet has all the updated and modern conveniences. Other reviews are correct. It is very quiet yet close to everything you'll need. The subway and Trader Joe's is just a short walk. We also walked to Central Park because it is so close.
Because there are few reviews of this on VRBO (log book in apartment shows many rentals), I've included a few extra details. Bottom line: we will stay here again. The apartment is offered by a management company. Although this likely increases the price, the assistance offered in regards to email, telephone and the set-up and maintenance of the apartment is a good tradeoff. This apartment in the back of the second floor of a brownstone is located in a toney and quiet residential Westside neighborhood with very convenient access to transportation, shopping and restaurants. No street noise whatsoever. The floor plan itself is small but efficient (the pictures on the website are accurate). A big plus in summer are the two quiet AC units: one in the main room /kitchenette area and one in the small bedroom. They are more than adequate. (I don't know about cold weather heating.) The supply of small items had hits and misses. The bedroom and living room, the latter with its small barstool dining table, are excellent spaces to spend the few hours you will stay in the apartment. Although the appliances in the kitchenette are good, the counter space for food preparation is very small. While toasting bread, making an omelet on the 4 burner cooktop, boiling a cup of water or preparing a frozen dinner (yuck) in the microwave is simple, preparing a more involved meal is not easy. The cabinets over the counter are very high: you need a step stool (supplied) to access beyond the first shelf. These last few comments on the kitchenette may not be applicable to many renters. We found it a minor inconvenience. It's a great place to stay. We will surely come back to stay here.
We loved the location and the apartment. I mentioned a night stand with a lamp would be really helpful and a few hooks in which to hang those great Frette towels.
We already have our reservations for October....so looking forward to our next visit.
Highly recommend this well run Herrick Property -
I can not say enough nice things about the Herrick Guest Suites Apt. on the upper west side. I've worked in the NY area regularly for almost 20 years and though all those years I've enjoyed periodically sharing my second home city with family and friends. This was the first time at Herrick Guest Suites and it will not be my last. Their upper West Side unit is in a wonderfully unique part of NYC where you can honestly enjoy the more 'laid back' relaxed family vibe of Manhattan. You can enjoy the very best that NYC has to offer, and feel very safe at any time day or night enjoying it all. Their West Side Guest Suite is absolutely cute, well appointed and maintained, one block from Central Park and the very best in NY eclectic shopping, dining, night life, and a short subway trip to The Village. Despite what one might here about NY'rs they really are a pleasure to know, are very friendly (always rushed though) and the Apt. management team are a pleasure to deal with. If they were any nicer, they'd probably have to have their 'surly NY'r' card revoked. Check this place out, you will not be disipointed.

We prefer this apartment as it is an ideal location for Lincoln Center and other Upper West Side destinations. It is well-appointed, the building owners who live downstairs always stop by to make sure our needs are being met, and the Herrick property managers are flawless!
