Good place

Freda Cao

Racial discrimination by a black woman at the front desk.when guest still there.they workers began to chat personally not professional

Leslie Thomas

Our opinion of quality while staying at NYAC was excellent due to our needs being met, no questions asked. We value the tradition and historical aspects of the club and respect their needs and desire to maintain a level of high standards. The rooms were well cared for, the staff very gracious, the dining in The Tap Room outstanding. The athletic facilities also met our expectations though we did not have the time to access more than the Jacuzzi. The location to Central Park, the Lincoln Center, Times Square, the MoMA, etc gives NYAC a 5 star in my book.

Ken Nakagama

Privacy, Resources, Security an excellent Food

Mr Cat

Great place

Brian Gantz

This place is fancy, and the staff is highly skilled and wonderful all around! This location has a rich history which is worth checking out.

Sean Kilmartin

This place is historic! The influence this organization has on American and Olympic sports in overwhelming. This athletes and their successes literally take a while book. The iconic Central Park South building is home to one of the ( arguably the ) most outstanding training facilities in any club of its kind. Great restaurants, excellent hotel rooms, fantastic location and a first class staff. I really suggest any reader of this list to simply research this place and it's influence on American sports history. If I could give it 10 stars and an American flag on those review I would!

Kevin Roberts

Christopher Dwyer

great location with the majestic foyer of a new york club steeped in history . sporting facilities for daily exercise are incredible and the foyer bar has music all night even with 2 people .... doesn't get much better

George Shinn

Amazing place with so much history. Great place for an event and to stay if you know a member. The hall of fame room is amazing with all of the trophies and Olympic medals. The last pic is shot from the roof of the club.

Peter Elson

Always great

Lilly K

Enjoyed the setting as well as the dinner! Taste of old NY.

Lluis Pallarés

Great location, great place. Old school dress code, which turns me down

Nydia Roehr

Stayed at the NYAC over thanksgiving weekend and had the worst hotel experience I’ve ever had. The staff was pompous and made no attempt at making their customers feel welcome. They treated us as if they were doing us a favor by letting us stay there, and one would think that being an athletic club they would have the workout facilities open and available for use during the busiest weekend of travel, but sadly the hours were really limited. Protocol is important and asking guests to follow the dress code is understandable but there are courteous ways to ask this from your guests. The management at the NYACcould learn quite a bit about hospitality from Hotels like Sofitel, or the Ritz Carlton that have customer service down to a science

Robinson Roca

High Class

Kinn Moursund

Home away from home in NYC

Erik Wilt

Great place to visit. I brought my whole family and they can be hard to please, let alone impress. Everyone left happy and impressed. We were helped in a professional manner when we needed needed assistance, making the whole experience very enjoyable. I highly recommend a visit.

Franck Cushner

Easily the most genteel place I have been in NYC. Do not think about violating the dress code.

Tim McCord

My favorite place to play squash, hands down. I make a point to use the squash facilities at least once a week. My family has been members for decades and I have been too since I was born. They are sticklers for the dress code, but this really does make for a good atmosphere. The restaurant is consistently good too: I go to eat there three to five times a year.


very nice

Patrick Jordan

Great event space

Don Schueler

A quality club experience. If you have the opportunity ..well worth your time

Kimberly Everette

Robert Alexander Boyle

World class private club situated on 59th street overlooking Central Park

Kutub Uddin


Christopher Moloney

Solidly professional and old-school class. Strict dress code and lots of nice rooms a features make this a New York icon. Location is by Central Park and so many great places to walk to. Excellent meeting facilities and views. Good security. Service was very professional and old-school, but not quite up to Four Seasons or Ritz quality. Good for business and meetings. Small and dated hotel rooms, but reasonable prices for members. Superb location. Location: 5-Star,s Rooms: 3 stars, lobby: 4 stars, service: 3.5 stars.

Anthony Forte

Works you very hard and now I am a state champion

nick wargo

Words can't describe the feeling of being there

Gareth Vaughan

Elegant and historical New York club. Not cheap but excellent food, beautiful premises and prime location on Central Park South.

Norm Glitz

Marvelous place. All brass and oak trim with modern electronics well integrated. Dining rooms are excellent. Members and guests only.

Markus Hofer

stayed there a couple of times, having been invited by a member. perfect location and great facilities make this place extraordinary.

Peter Roach

Expensive as hell to become a member, but it's super swank.

Patrick Valleau

Beautiful building on Central Park South. Members only though

Rachel Lu

I came here for a conference and ended up staying on two extra days for personal reasons. A relative offered to pay for the extra nights and this was explained to the front desk; when I checked out I asked about my bill and was told I would be charged for a few incidentals but that the room was taken care of as discussed. That was fine, and the incidentals charged posted immediately. Two weeks later a much larger charge (several hundred dollars) showed up on my personal credit card. When I called for an explanation, I was told that no one present could explain but I was free to call back in a couple of days. Seriously? When that conversation finally took place I was told that I was just being charged for my room and that there was no record of my relative paying for anything. This was explicitly contrary to what I was told at checkout, but the manager's attitude seemed to imply that *I* had somehow neglected to handle my affairs properly. I asked: If this is a normal charge, why didn't this bill go through until weeks after my stay? No explanation. Just a repetition that she was willing to put the charge on another card if I took the trouble to supply one. Of course no one ever apologized for putting me in the exceedingly awkward position of either paying an unexpected bill myself, or else calling a relative weeks after the fact to ask them to handle something they'd generously taken care of already. The entire incident reflected gross incompetence and rank unprofessionalism. It's that kind of "customer is always wrong" mentality that really tells you you should steer clear of a place.

Annie Brown

Old rooms, nothing new or even updated since 1980s. This place has a 1960's mentality - if you are wearing jeans you have to use the back entrance. And you have to walk up three flights of stairs before you are permitted to use the elevators if you are wearing jeans. We stayed on the 14th floor, the flowers were dead three nights in a row. Our floors were never vacuumed in the four nights we were there. Honestly, the last Marriott I stayed in was a ten compared to this place. I was so disappointed from start to finish.

Bessie Brewster

I enjoyed my visit at the new york athletic club everyone were so nice and friendly they make you feel comfortable thank you Athletic Club.

Quinn Dailey

Beautiful club with gym.

Eric Schrimshaw

A taste of old New York. Architecturally stunning inside, very much the feel of a former men's only club. Food at the bistro was good, not great, and the service was a little difficult due to language barrier. Would love to try to main dining room some day!

Eric Fears

Great place to workout

Juice Blare

Just the best view of central park every seen from the roof

Thomas Vitiello

Outstanding facility!

Eli Mathieu

Visited this club as a reciprocal member and was promptly greeted with a pompous and unhelpful staff. Simply walking into the building was made difficult, as if wearing the wrong shoes makes you a second class citizen and undeserving of the amenities available. Once we arrived from the back entrance (the front is reserved for people much more important than I) we were directed around the lobby to numerous staff who had no idea what was happening. Attempting to get a guest pass took about an hour as well as $15 per person. Upon taking the stairs up 3 floors, we discovered unremarkable and aging facilities present at any nice hotel or probably the local Planet Fitness ($10 per month instead of $15 per visit). I have never felt so unwelcome and that level of pretentiousness anywhere.

Cathal Moore

Well run, great location.

Angela Nicholapolous

Its at a great location, great history associated with it, worth checking it!

Cazal Arnett

Private club, hospitality and athletics sum up the New York Athletic Club. History, reputation and great members to match. With numerous groups and clubs within the club, each member is bound to find a group/club which matches their interests. What more can one ask for in a club? Working out in the same facility as some world class athletes is quite motivating. Saunas, steam rooms, tap room, men's lounge, gymnasium, squash courts, billiards room, card room and communications center are some of my favorite places in the club.


Friendly staff, especially once you chat with them and get to know their names. Amazing pool, steam, sauna. Yes there are lots of "old boys" but who cares? This place rocks. Location, service, attentiveness, and I, personally, appreciate the dress code - with so much "casual" dressing going on these days, it is refreshing to see people who actually dress up and make an effort to look sharp, no matter their age. NYAC I will see you again soon!

Cindy Rinker

Lots of dark wood and history. Beautiful. Attended a conference there and the accommodations were great.

Marta Cogorno

Great place to exercise

Facundo Noblega


Rolyn Santiago

Stayed in one of the rooms for a wedding. Very nice place to stay, the staff is very polite. The place is well kept. Will recommend. They dont allow cell phones in the lobby and very strict dress code.

eric averbach

Beautiful touch of old New York


Great exercise facility - if you are a member b

Don Broderick

Beautiful restaurant. World-class athletic facilities. Impressive interior. Great location.

Jorge Camuñas

Great venue for dinner meetings!

Trey Short

Watched the Macy's day parade from the American Legion outpost on the 12th floor and it was exquisite! Very nice club in central Manhattan.

Spencer Tucker

This place is coolant beautiful and if I could afford it I would be a member

Neil Eurelle

Simply amazing hotel and athlectic facilities in the heart of beautiful mid town Manhattan. My new favourite place in NYC.

Kingsford Osei Yaw

Very nice place to visit

Kirk Visser

I don't know much about the upstairs facilities but there is some the best fencing in the United States in the basement.

Candida La Motta

Perfectly located, gracious care, numerous activities for all in your family, delicious main dining room. Nothing is impossible at this impeccable club.

Maranda York

The manager called a black employee outside to ask an elderly woman and a handicap female to move off of the steps. They were not begging, just catching their breath for a second. Any organization that doesn't have compassion for the elderly and the handicap isn't an organization that anyone should want to be apart of. I understand exclusivity but to not have compassion for a person who was short of breath is beyond inhumane.

Roberta Schechter

Their dress code antiquicated and needs to be revised.

Kathleen Longo

Need membership to get in. No jeans allowed, including members. Friend had membership and we had coffee. Nice quiet place. Friendly servers.

Curt Raffi

Watch the Showtime series Billions, and begin to understand how tradition drives Chuck Rhoades Sr. and you'll soon understand what the New York Athletic Club means to Old New Yorkers. It honors a past that has seemingly disappeared in our instant wealth focused, social media obsessed, world. The club is a historical artifact offering special event venues (for weddings and celebrations), hotel rooms, health club facilities, and dining for membership and their guests. Recently we attended a wedding in New York City and the wedding party was held at the NYAC in a beautiful 9th floor ballroom overlooking Central Park. The guests we're offered room accommodations which, while not cutting edge, exuded Old World charm and traditional ambiance that one might have found in a turn of the century english private school. Having been a member of the Boston Harvard Club this facility is very similar and has reciprocal privileges. However, the rules at NYAC are a little more formal than you might find at the Harvard Club. If you're visiting, there's a dress code that is strictly enforced. I donned chinos and a very nice poloshirt but forgot and wore new athletic shoes walking across the lobby. This is verboten unless you are checking in or checking out. I was scolded and sent up the back stairs (there needs to be better signage for offenders), a path reserved so that people in the lobby won't see those with any type of "casual" sporting a tire. That does seem somewhat of a conundrum, because this is in fact an "athletic club", right? However, that term means something different to the club. Imagine the old days when one might have exercised at the club and then cleaned up, put on penny loafers, a blue blazer, dark slacks and went back to the law firm or back out into... proper society. That's where the origins of this club lie. Having seen several people caught in the dress code conundrum, I'd advise that if you are visiting, look at the dress code manual extremely carefully and understand what you can and can't do. That being said, I believe that over the next 10 years as people who are less familiar with an older New York Society of the past make up the majority of all new 'potential members" (now envision Wags or Bobby Axelrod from Showtime's Billions joining), there will be some changes in the dress code...I'm confident. As far as accommodations go, the beds were quite comfortable, with kuereg machines and a mini friges in many rooms. From a dining perspective the food, especially the filet mignon, was beautifully done and quite tasty. Note that there is also valet parking available at the front door (of course there is... you "old school clubbers" you) If possible, visit the rooftop for a drink overlooking Central Park from the 24th floor. Change elevators at the 20th floor into a tiny service elevator to complete the journey. But note when someone in our party with a wheelchair tried to get into the rooftop elevator, it was a tight squeeze and ultimately not possible. For something slightly more casual and remember ...I use that term extremely loosely...visit the Tap Room for a 1930's preppy bar environment for food, drinks and light oak inspired conversational elegance. Overall you can't go wrong with anything on Central Park South and this setting is beautiful, but remember the New York Athletic Club is old school and they expect you to respect their tradition with as much passion as they do.

Mohit Yadav

The building is beautiful from inside

Frank Harmon

Classic, huge and very well maintained. Location is best in the city. Great service and delicious food.

Olivier Nimeskern

I spent one evening at the New York Athletic Club as my friend is a member, I believe you have to be a member to get in. They have nice sports facilities which is not surprising given their name, squash, swimming pool, weights and more. And a cozy classy club where you can have diner, with a nice view of Central Park at night. Private club style, with 5 stars service and excellent food and drinks.

scott s

Old school. Historic. Great piece of old New York.

Elizabeth J

Old school social club in New York City. The NYAC is a great social club with a sports focus. It is located on Central Park South. It has undergone several renovations over the years, it looks fresh and well maintained. The NYAC has a steady stream of new faces. Get a member to take you to the roof deck. It is a great place to spend an summer afternoon. There is a summer location at Travers Island, too. Note, I have wiled many happy hours here in the past. No, I am not a member.

Chris Bonica

I was invited for an event that took place in the billiard room. What a fantastic place, multiple floors of activities, the facility is meticulously kept, everyone working there is very nice. One of the coolest features about the place is the view, you get a full view of Central Park, no obstructions.

Frank Castro

Beautiful facilities great staff , wonderful members and guest. The New York Athletic Club is home of Champions.

Theresa Rush

I attended a Benefit event for the Business Of Sports School

Leslie Foxen

Elegant dining and social activities. Disallows cell phone conversations

kristine Cee

Beautiful space

Harry King

Dress code is a joke and rooms are tacky. You’re going to tell me that because I’m wearing boots and jeans (per snow), after paying hundreds of dollars for a hole-in-the-wall room, I can’t use the front entrance and have to walk up 3 flights of stairs to use the elevator to get to my room? As an ex-member, this place is filled with snobby stuck up people who are stuck in the 50’s with their outdated rules and sense of superiority. Avoid if you can.

Rose Aring

Impressive location and very friendlu staff. Food served at a banquet was beautiful, healthy and very well done.

Manny Diaz

Came here the last several years for the Bill Farrell Invitational Wrestling Tourney. It's my favorite one to attend b/c of the history of the NYAC. Brilliantly run and after it's over, we get to go out in NY City.

Thomas Wu

Very bad experience. We went there as reciprocal members from Seattle. The facility is really old. It doesn't look like they have renovated in decades. Pool is small, only 4 or 5 lanes. Locker rooms are wet and musty. Basketball court flooring is falling apart. Library looks like it's been there since the 1900's. And not in the good way. Attendants are rude and not helpful at all. On top of that, they charge almost 30 bucks per day to use the facility. I can understand places like Tokyo and Hong Kong American Club charging to use their brand new, outstanding facilities. But this? Come on. Really shameful!

Paul Selby

Old school club with loads of history

Luis Noronha

Traditional club with diverse sports facilities.

C Conaghan

Very impressive place.

Bronx Medical Professionals

I am a member of the NYAC it is one of my favorite places to spend time it’s clean, elegant, and it’s a place for well educated people as well. Thus there staff can be incompetent at times I say I’m here to work out and without looking there statement is your not in the data base. Then they wait for coaches to Vauture for me. Meanwhile other folks walk in with no questions asked. I am extremely disappointed in the so called process. The staff in the back of the building Monday-Wednesday are kind yet unhelpful and unprofessional. I am really disappointed especially as a paying member here this club does not deserve my 1800 a month !!!

Bryan Ahearn

Great athletic facility. Staff is always professional and courteous.

pyramidlilly hamm

Elegant and the scenery is beautiful never mind the food and abundance of wine

太子城 桌球会PrinceSnookerClub

It's so beautiful place

Ana MineGirl

Very good

Matthew Anderson

Uppity, pretentious and exclusive. Everything you've ever wanted and less. It is exactly what you'd expect. The holiday brunch is probably the best thing they do. You can have the same meal at an upscale all-you-can-eat buffet in Las Vegas. No Jeans. Must wear pants and a jacket. Neato!

Michael Elftman

Beautiful place to have dinner in NYC. One of my favorite places.

Emmett O'Toole

Beautiful venue for events in midtown

Bill Palifka

Just awesome.

Paul Marvin
