Located on the southern end of Central Park, The Park Lane Hotel is the epitome of what makes for good real estate, location, location, location. As others have said, this NYC land mark is in need of upgrading. First, the good. Our room was on the 42nd floor and the whole of Central Park was ours on which to gaze...

Reviewed 22 February 2017 via mobile

I recently stay at the Park Lane Hotel with my husband. We came for just an overnight trip. I must say when I first arrived I thought this review was going to be bad as the wait to check in was very long. Once we finally made it up to the front desk though I was happily surprised to be...

Friends stayed here for their wedding and they recommended The Park Lane. When I made the reservation, I picked a park view and the breakfast option. I highly recommend doing both. The views of the park were magnificent and the breakfast items were great. The hotel is aging a bit, but that made it feel even more comfortable. I felt...

I travel to NYC at least 2x/month. I always stay in Midtown, and usually stay closer to my office but this trip I opted to stay closer to Central Park for various reasons. I am also in the hotel industry and force myself out of my usual hotel to try others in the City. This hotel is beyond snooty, and...

I have stayed in Park Lane hotel 3 times and the view from park-facing rooms takes my breathe away every single time. The rooms are quite large for NYC standard and although decor is somewhat dated, it does give you an old-world vibe which is quite lovely. However, apart from the amazing view, there is really not much else going...

The Park Lane is perfectly located, wonderful service, comfortable beds and quiet rooms. So for the price a good place to stay. What it needs is a bit of upgrading. Carpet is worn. Air conducting struggles, for example our room stayed at 74 degrees whether the sir was set at 65 or 75. Ice service is spotty-- you have to...

It was the first time we stayed at this area in NYC. I would like to experience the central park area. First I made sure we had a nice spacious room with a nice view of the park. Being so close to CP was perfect because we were traveling with our little Scruffy, a french bulldog. The hotel staff was...

For some reason I thought this hotel was a block off Central Park but was pleasantly surprised to find the hotel is on Central Park south right across the street from the park. We had an incredible view of the entire park from our room. Highly recommended

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
