A Great Place to Stay

Hotel was very comfortable; bed was excellent; all services, including concierge, were fast, knowledgeable, and friendly; neighborhood is great for food, walking, Lincoln Center, Central Park and more. Easy to drive to, since 79th Street has ramp onto West Side Highway; easy to get there by subway, too. will use it again.

Location, location, location

Two blocks from Central Park and a bunch of museums. Two separate subway lines within 2 blocks. Clean rooms, friendly staff, safe neighborhood, free wifi. Just a solid value. What's not to like?

NYC Spring Break Trip

The Lucerne was a great choice for us...family of 3 on my son's spring break. 2 blocks from the History Museum and Central Park and a quick Subway ride to Times Square and South. Room was clean, comfortable and roomy. Would definitely consider staying here again whether with my son or on a romantic trip with my husband.

Upper west side gem

The Lucerne is an individual hotel in a great location. It was our first time in NYC and we made a conscious decision to stay well away from the Times Sq tourist traps. The hotel is close to a subway and numerous places to eat and drink within a short walking distance. Staff was delightful and checked us into our room a good 3 hrs before they were obliged to. A great spot and close to Central Park, Met and Natural History museum. Try Zabar's, not far from the hotel, for breakfast and the most amazing deli.

Lincoln Center to Upper Westside perfection

I stayed here 4 years ago with my mom during school auditions and had a wonderful, comfortable stay, my first in NYC. This time my whole family stayed while visiting me at school. 4 years later everything is still very professional, comfortable and very friendly. All doormen, bellmen, concierge, front desk and housekeeping staff were very courteous, polite and friendly. Tipping them was a pleasure. Even the weather this time was nice. We'll be back and have recommended this hotel to other family and friends.

Perfect Overnight Accomodations

My niece and I were driving from NH to NYC to see a performance at the Lyceum and needed overnight accomodations. After much location deliberation, I chose the Lucerne away from Times Square. Upon arrival, well past the 7th inning stretch, we were expertly met, directed, assisted, and unloaded at the curb by the doormen and painlessly checked in and instantly upgraded by the clerk. Valet was offered however, we selfparked at a nearby garage for $34. The room was pleasing to the eye, spotless, fresh and well appointed. The beds were very comfortable. I arose early to attend 7:30 AM mass at nearby Holy Trinity Church and coffee and croissant 3 blocks from there at Le Pain Quotidien then, a refreshing walk in the crisp air to Central Park.

Entertainment tip: Not Applicable

Double check your venue; not all Lincoln Center Events are at 65th Street. : ) And, many thanks to the Russian Cab Drive who got us to the theatre on time.
