We had a wonderful stay at the Lucerne. The staff couldn't do enough for us, when they heard it was our honeymoon they upgraded our room and we were sent a bottle of wine straight to the room. The hotel was clean and well kept, with comfy beds and great views.

The beds are so comfortable and the rooms very clean. Local bars and restaurants and the location to central park makes this hotel an excellent choice and position.

The Lucerne Hotel
Very Good8.0
Classy Hotel in a great location
The hotel is situated in a great area of New York, busy enough to maintain the big city feel but quiet enough to relax and get some sleep. There are loads of street side restaurants to choose from and we had a good experience at all of the ones we went to during our 5 night stay. There is also a restaurant within the hotel complex 'Nice Matin' which serves a very good breakfast. It's a little pricey but you do get a 15% discount as a hotel guest of the Lucerne. The hotel staff are very friendly and attentive and the concierge organised a private hire SUV cab to take us back to JFK airport on our departure. This cost $91 (including tolls and tip) but was well worth the extra for the ride comfort and to not have the constant horn blasting you get in the yellow cabs. The only down side to our stay at the Lucerne was the size of our room. It was very small for 3 of us and the shower cubicle was so small that it was impossible to have a decent shower. I did notice the size of some of the other rooms when the housekeepers were cleaning them and all of the rooms I saw were larger than ours so I guess we just got unlucky with the allocation. We didn't spend too much time in there so it was no big deal.

A fantastic hotel in upper west Manhattan. Location was great, close to Central Park, museum of natural history and within walking distance to the biz of Times Square and all the popular visitor attractions.
