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.

Great for the price!

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.

FISHTAG, ACROSS FROM HOTEL, WORTH A VISIT ALTHOUGH DOES NOT LOOK TOO GOOD FROM OUTSIDE. ALSO TRY IRVING FARM FOR BREAKFAST.

Great location

Comfortable safe hotel in a great family neighborhood. I walked to Central Park, Museum of Natural History, restaurants, and took subway to theaters. Staff was helpful, mattress comfortable, bathroom updated. I would recommend updating of the heavy gold brocade décor to something fresher.

Nice surprise

I thought the location was very good. More residential and quieter than staying in midtown or downtown. Close to the park, subway, shopping and dining. The room was comfortable and quiet. I would stay here again.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

I thought the Staten Island Ferry was an easy way to see views of Manhattan, as well as the Brooklyn Bridge, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. It doesn't get you up close to the Statue but the views are still great. It's free and runs 24/7 every 30 minutes. Can't beat it.

Perfect NYC getaway

Lovely, clean, great location. Staff was attentive. Room was average size, very clean, and recently renovated. Our trip was a getaway weekend for two middle-aged businesswomen and our teen-age daughters. Wonderful location, close to Central Park. Very safe, even late at night. Subway is around the corner. Restaurant next to hotel was good, but overpriced. Definitely would stay at the Lucerne again.
