Great location and accommodations

Staff was extremely friendly, helpful and went out of their way to make things work for us. Room was very comfortable and cleaned impeccably every day. Location was close to subway, major museums, and Central Park. Will definitely stay there again.

Quiet getaway

My main attraction to this hotel was its proximity to Central Park and it delivers! It's walking distance to various dining places and convenient stores. Comfortable clean rooms.

Perfect for a short stay

We were given a room that smelled mildly of cigarette smoke, the staff immediately moved us and went to check and clean the room. Our room was spacious for NYC hotel and well appointed. Breakfast at Nice Matin downstairs was perfect to start the day!

Away from the hustle and bustle.

We stayed at the Lucerne with our two grown up children in a superior double room for a short break in August. Best thing about the hotel was the location, away from the hustle and bustle, but right next to a subway, a short walk to Central Park, and in the middle of some good restaurants (try 'Fred's' for an amazing pulled pork sandwich!#. Our room had a separate space with a sofa and tiny kitchenette, which was useful. We were on the top floor #12# and had a great view. Our room was clean, although the decor was a little 'oldy worldy' and dark #think brown heavy curtains#. The staff were great especially the doorman who helped us get a taxi back to newark airport - we did not realise that this would be such a problem. Overall, a super place to stay.

Lots of restaurants along Amsterdam Avenue, with Fred's being a standout place to eat - their spcial early bird menu between 3.00pm and 5.00pm is good value.
