Great hotel on the Upper West Side

Hotel rooms in NYC are expensive and small. You've got to expect that. My standard room was small, but not unreasonable. I think it was a good deal in comparison to the other packages out there.

Can't be beat

The location is perfect and the staff is wonderful. The rooms are well-appointed and comfortable. I strongly recommend this hotel. Only issue, though not for me, is that it doesn't appear to be handicap accessible.

Nice Matin is located in the building with direct access from the lobby for breakfast and a very short outside walk to the corner for lunch and dinner. The food is wonderful and fairly priced for NYC.

Convenient, nice room in NYC

I had a conference in NYC for the weekend. I didn't spend much time in the hotel or hotel room but it is convenient to get to, has comfortable beds, and everything you need. It was quiet, clean and the staff was very friendly, even hailing us a cab. Worth the stay.

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.

A Great Place to Stay on the Upper West Side

I have stayed at the Lucerne on a number of occasions, and each time the hotel has lived up to he high standards I have. One to expect from it. This latest stay, albeit a short one, was no different. The Front Desk staff was friendly and efficient, and upon hearing I had stayed at the hotel previously, the associate who checked me in smiled and said "welcome back!" The room was neat, clean and comfortable, and even though it looked out on busy West 79th Street, it was quiet as well. There was no noise from adjoining rooms or the hall, a plus from the Lucerne's original solid construction.There was some leakage of cold outside air through the bathroom window, but nothing too terrible. It was another in a series of enjoyable stays of me at the Lucerne.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Plenty of mass transit, both subways and buses, within a short walk of the hotel. Much cheaper than a taxi and you can get pretty much anywhere you need to go.

Old School

I was in NYC for a conference in Midtown but hotel rooms were scarce so ended up at the Lucerne on the Upper West Side. It appears to be in a trendy hip neighborhood with lots of restaurants and bars, 79th and Amsterdam. The restaurant Nicematin is part of the building but apparently is not affiliated. I tried to check in early so I may have drawn one of the smaller but available rooms. The room was adequate, but small, and well appointed but on the 2nd floor so there was a little bit of outdoor noise seeping into the room in the morning. The fitness/spa room is on this floor so it has a more public feel. I had a nice massage via their service. They have a concierge on duty and the lobby and staff were very friendly. Overall a nice experience and a good way to see other parts of the city and get out of the hustle and bustle of midtown.

Ordinary

Rooms were Good. Restroom was more like Comfort Inn. I have seen cheaper hotels with better bath accessories. Bathroom had no exhaust fan / open-able windows.
