We have group rates with several hotels within the vicinity of the American Museum of Natural History.

The Upper West Side is primarily a residential neighborhood on the west side of Manhattan. It is not as tourist-driven as Times Square and the Theater District, but tourists are drawn to its many cultural institutions and to Central Park, Manhattan's back yard.
