Not Luxurious

This hotel has a great location and is one of the most quiet and peaceful I've ever stayed at. All of my experiences with staff were very nice indeed, although check-in needs work. Over four days, a dozen small things went awry. Granted, people made it right, but training is off here. Or attention to detail at overall level. Still, I would stay here again if I wanted to be on this corner and wanted a quiet stay. FYI, I uncharacteristically did not use fitness or spa and these might be special.

This hotel is right across the park from Museum Mile. It is a great walk to get there--or take the M79 bus if you must.

The Lucerne Hotel

For the money, The Lucerne is a very nice hotel to stay at in New York City. Over the last three years I've stayed there quite often. The staff is very nice and very helpful, and if you are doing anything on The Upper West Side, the location is excellent. I have recommended this hotel to friends.

2nd Time. Good as the first.

We've now stayed in August and February and have thoroughly enjoyed both times. Nice Matin is excellent dining (have tried all three meals as well as just cocktails), but it's well situated near any number of other places so we didn't feel obliged to eat there just because we were staying there.. Access to subways and Central Park was excellent and the staff (including desk and door) were extremely courteous and professional. Great boutique stay with reasonably-priced charm.

Great location and restaurant

Stay here often.It is quiet and attractive. Location for upper west side is great. A drawback is can't get room service from restaurant menu, 2 bedded rooms are small but very comfortable and no mini bar. However, there are coffee makers and umbrellas in the rooms and the staff is helpful.Both Columbus Ave and Broadway are each one block away and Central park is 2. The hotel restaurant, Nice Matin, is very good and often crowded with non-hotel people. Some seasons they offer a late afternoon wine sampling and the lobby is conducive to meeting people.

Four of us split a room for a single night here and it was great! Great size for the price, clean, and a great location. I'd highly recommend it.
