Park Lane Hotel NYC

Good hotel. Few amenities. WIFI is not included and its 14USD a day, which is pretty expensive. The location is perfect. Right in front of Central Park and close to the subway and museums like MOMA. Overall its a good 4 Star Hotel.

Great location and value

hadn't been to this hotel in 18 years. Very nice and the location is awesome. If you like to run, or just enjoy Central Park as much as I do, all you have to do is walk across the street. Subway station is just a couple hundred feet away. Great value

Sort of dull, not tech ready

No NYC energy in the lobby. Too few outlets in room. Nobody charges separately for wi-fi anymore. Just include it in the rate and give people the password on arrival. Staff was very helpful. Room was very clean

Location, location, location

The Park Lane Hotel is perfectly located and priced. The front desk staff and the house keeping staff were wonderful. The room decor was very "I am staying at grandma's place" circa 1982. I enjoyed the retro feel. Elevators were super fast and the bed was very comfortable. These are the positive aspects of this hotel. Now, seriously, in 2014 someone is charging $13 for internet?! There are no ice machines in the entire hotel, yet there are really nice ice buckets in the room. I encountered several guests wandering my floor looking for vending and ice machines. Apparently, one could call room service for ice but there is no room service after 1 am. Just kind of weird. Housekeeping was super nice but I wish that they had vacuumed the corners of the room. My daughter tried to call the front desk, the manager, and the concierge about the ice issue but never could get a hold of anyone. She did get a response from housekeeping and they offered to bring ice to the room. Again, they were always very accommodating. Anyway, for my needs, the Park Lane was just fine, although Internet and ice would have been appreciated. I am sure that a more demanding guest might be put off by the lack of staff and amenities.

getaway

hotel location is excellent; on a nice day Broadway theaters are a 10- 15 minute walk and restaurants are all over; while hotel room was nice it does not appear to have been renovated recently; room amenities like coffee machine are missing; refrigerator not even plugged in; hallway on tenth floor required night vision goggles to see where you were going; interactions with staff were pleasant.
