This was our first trip as a family to NY. We plan to make this an annual event and Park Lane will be our hame base. The hotel was perfect and it's location, being close Central Park and the subway, made getting around very convenient.

vacation trip

the young lady at the front desk.Quin, was outstanding. she is a real asset to this hotel. We would return to this hotel because of the front desk assistance. The breakfast was very hit and miss. first day, virtually no service, we had to ask for table to be cleared,then ask for silverware,then ask for clean napkins. each of these requests I was required to go find someone from the staff. we never knew who our waiter was and food was cold. second day,everything was excellent. Waiter was attentive and food was fresh and hot. third day, service was mediocre and food on buffet was mostly all gone . this was an hour before they closed. finally, the $30/day amenities charge was a surprise. all too common at todays hotels.

Not what you would expect for the area. Service was not up to par, very slow to respond. Bed was very uncomfortable. Tub was filthy.

Christmas in the City!

I enjoyed my stay at The Park Lane. The location is wonderful! The room was smaller but it was just me so it was okay. I didn't have anything in my room about room service ( no menu and no information on Harry's at all). I had to look online to read about Harry's. There were books in the room about places to see, things to do but they could have been better. More simple, especially for someone that was in NYC for the first time and by herself! The location was wonderful, so beautiful being by the park and close to everything.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Definitely go to Rockeller Center. Go inside, shop and dine and then go to the top of the Rock! It was awesome and a better way to see the city, park and views than the Empire State Building since u can then go to Times Square, the Broadway area for a show and dinner or walk 5th Ave and SHOP!
