About the property

Completely private studio apartment in small brownstone building.

The Metropolitan Room, as it is known, is an elegantly furnished studio is up one flight of stairs in a 1881 brownstone townhouse. The four poster queen size bed is extremely comfortable and laden with pillows and a comforter. The south facing windows fitted with folding shutters and venetian blinds look out over West 82nd Street. The kitchen is small but efficient with a brand new LG stainless steel refrigerator. There is a professional quality hot plate that can cook anything. An additional hotplate is available upon request. The charming wallpapered bathroom is has a bathtub and features both a standard shower and a hand held shower.

There is a new flat screen television behind the shutters of the armoire. The big desk has plenty of room to set up a computer and work. There are two leather club chairs facing the fireplace (non-working). A commodious dresser and big closet will fit all your clothes. Hangers are provided, of course. The floor is carpeted in a wool berber and there is an arts and crafts wallpaper wainscotting around the room.

We are a married couple who live on the ground floor, one of us is an architect, the other a composer of classical music. We both work from home. We will greet you upon your arrival and are happy to guide you to features of the neighborhood. The building is extremely quiet and secure, as is the tree lined block in the heart of the Upper West Side. You are just steps from the greatest museums, shopping and entertainment in the world.

About Warren Ashworth

We are an artist couple, one of us is a composer of classical music the other is a painter and an architect. We have two grown children. We live and work in the brownstone.

Warren Ashworth purchased this apartment in 1987

Why Warren Ashworth chose Manhattan

This is our year round residence. We have two VRBO units in this brownstone, each across the hall from the other. The other unit, The Dutch Room, is listed under VRBO 430146. Families and friends often like to book both. They are both studios and both are the same rental rates.

What makes this apartment unique

High ceilings, quiet, beautifully furnished.

Unlike many listings, The Metropolitan Room is fully licensed by the City and State of New York to operate as a hotel for which we collect and pay taxes. Our license numbers are available upon request.

Delightful, clean, and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

Charismatic brownstone in outstanding location near to Central Park, Metro and range of great cafes. The furnishings are delightful and the heating is excellent. Additional pillow options could have made and stay more comfortable. Would certainly recommend this and stay here again,

Great place, great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Manhattan room for a week at the beginning of December. Location was great, close to 2 different subway stations. Able to walk to many locations. Owner's were very accommodating. Let us keep our luggage in their storage on the day we were leaving, as we had a later flight. Would definitely stay again.

Perfect Upper Westside Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in NYC recently and it was perfect! NYC during the holidays, although a little chilly at times, was perfect! My wife and I thought The Metropolitan Room was perfect! The upper westside neighborhood was perfect and conveniently located to Central Park, subway, shopping, restaurants, groceries, etc.

The owners were very attentive, accommodating, and friendly. The day of our departure NYC did not want to see us leave and decided to snow causing out flight to be cancelled. I quickly notified the owner about the cancelled flight and an immediate response came back with stay another night if needed. We were able to make flight arrangements for later the same day, but it gave us peace of mind knowing we had a safe and comfortable place to stay if needed.

I highly recommend the Metropolitan Room for your next trip to NYC. You will be glad you stayed there.

A enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a very comfortable stay in this old Brown Stone property on 82 street. It has a lovely entrance. It was very clean. Bedding was beautiful. Bathroom small but adequate with generous supplies of toiletries and towels. It is a very safe area and close to a great little cafe for coffee. Lovely table books to read.

Such a wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Husband and self recently stayed in the apartment for 11 nights. The apartment is very well located, in between 2 subway lines, close to restaurants and other shopping. The apartment had everything to accommodate our needs and wifi was excellent. We love New York and even though it was our second visit in 2 years we are already thinking of returning in Spring 2018 as there is so much more to see and do. Hoping the apartment will be available on our next trip as it is so good. Jude & Bjorn Melbourne Australia.
