Compact but fine. Elevator not working for whole week. Staff was mixed - some friendly, some indifferent....

A lovely, relaxing, affordable hotel in a beautiful neighborhood.

Nice hotel in Midtown, west side. Walking distance from Central Park West, Natural History Museum and New York Historical Society Museum. Very nice neighborhood.

The Lucerne is a lovely, relaxing, welcoming hotel in a beautiful part of the city.

We stay here often. Great location, nice hotel. My only complaint is the music playing all the time in the lobby and elevators-bad pop. How about some classical or jazz - no lyrics?

well located, well managed, very clean, not fancy. friendly staff

Great location. Good hotel on Upper West Side. Stay here often.

Small room but the location makes it worth it! Small in size but nice in quality.

Quality furnishings and decor. Price was a little high, but we enjoyed our stay.

Lovely hotel, friendly staff, close to Central Park, nice area

Good location for my purpose this visit. I enjoyed the restaurant, Nice Matin ... very convenient.

Hotel is in need of room renovations. I'm 35 years in the hotel business and the rooms are very tired. I speak from experience.

Water pressure decreased while taking a shower or washing hands; other than that my family and I had a very nice stay. When room service was ordered, the food arrived quickly. i was pretty impressed. Definitely looking forward in staying with you guys again.

The hotel was in a great location! It was very easy to get to Central Park and there were really cute shops and restaurants close by. The room was comfortable enough but has a really funny smell (like friend chicken) and the shower was a mess. The curtain smelled like mold and the shower leaked water all over the floor. All in all the location was well worth the other headaches.

Good location with friendly staff. Good value. Will return on a future visit.
