My family of 4 just spent a week at the Lucerne Hotel and had a wonderful stay. We have no complaints about the hotel. The location is great and the staff was great, too. We booked a double deluxe. We were fortunate that the hotel was ready when my husband arrived early in the morning and that they hotel was...

Loved the location of the hotel, close to subway, Central Park etc... Wonderful area to explore the city from. Wlak to great section of Broadway, cant say enough about the location. Very accomodating staff, friendly and attentive. Did not try the restaurant so no comment on that. Try Copolla's Italian Restaurant across the street.

Thank you very much for your comments. I'm happy to hear that you tried Copolla's Italian Restaurant, it's one of my favorite restaurants. I hope that you come back very soon and try Nice Matin. Their French Mediterranean cuisine is out of this world.

The stay at this hotel was comfortable, as there was no much things beyond what is essential: spacy room (even a bit dark towards the backyard), friendly and enough staff around, very helpful at all times. Breakfast not in the hotel but at the french-like café next door (has to be paid directly, so take your money with you). As...

We stayed for 19nights and had a great time. Very nicely located in a family area with many good eateries around. Slightly expensive for the quality and size of room. Kitchette was non-existent with little to use. Good housekeeping and cleaning staff.

Everything runs smoothly here, from the desk to the housekeeping. Accomodations are pleasant and more than adequate for the price. Location is perfect for visiting the American Museum of Natural History, Central Park, Riverside Avenue, etc. Nice staff at all times of day, too.

Having had a personal recommendation for The Lucerne I was confident that it would be nice, but it exceeded my expectations. The deluxe 2 bed room was spacious and very clean; a corner room with views looking out to the river and Central Park. The staff was accommodating and the location was excellent; a very nice neighbourhood just a couple...

The Lucerne is located in the upper west side on 79th street. Our family visits New York once to twice a year and have found staying on the West side to be much more enjoyable than Times Square and the surrounding areas. This hotel is located close the Subway to get right into Times Square and Soho. The hotel itself...

Our flights were delayed for 2 days out of LGA so we went to the Lucerne and made a fun weekend of it. The price for the room was reasonable, and the hotel and its staff were great. We would definitely stay there again.

Friendly staff, clean nice room, conveniently located. Close to the park, and convenient bus lines just outside the door. Area is fine. Hotel is cozy and very good. Rather than a huge luxury hotel, this place is just right for feeling like its a home away from home.
