Who knew? A bed and breakfast in the heart of New York City.

Allie’s Inn offers luxury hotel style studios with the feel of a country bed and breakfast just a 5 minute walk away from City College and a short train ride away from Columbia University. Great way for Mom and Dad to visit their college student for special events, including graduation.

Allie’s Room is a newly renovated large sunny studio with a queen size bed and a daybed with trundle. It has a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, private bathroom with skylight and large walk in closet. There is complimentary WIFI, LCD TV, continental breakfast and housekeeping service upon request.

Garden View Room has a garden view, of course, a luxury full bed and all of the above amenities.

So where is this gem located? In the Hamilton Heights/Sugar Hill section of West Harlem. It is adjacent to St. Nicholas Park, which was named after St. Nicholas of Myra, by the way. How many New Yorkers knew that? I didn’t.

Sorry. I digress. The address is 313 West 136 Street, between Frederick Douglass Blvd and Edgecombe Avenue, New York City 10030.

It really is located in a fabulous part of New York. Look at some of the landmarks you can visit while staying at Allie’s Inn:
