I stayed there with a friend in early June and it was terrific. It was located close to the subway, places to eat and shop. It was beautiful and we had lots of space in our room. It was pretty challenging to find a hotel with two double beds. This location is only 3 subway stops away from Times Square....

Great location on upper West Side, only 2 blocks from Central Park. After a slight hiccup regarding our bags when we arrived, the staff then bent over backwards to accommodate us with fabulous service. The hotel was a lovely oasis of comfort after fun days exploring New York. The staff was excellent, the rooms spacious and clean, the neighborhood quiet...

We have been to NYC many times and stayed all over the city. This was our first venture into the West Side and it will be the spot we choose from now on. Perfect location.

"GREAT OLDER HOTEL RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE UPPER WEST SIDE" Spotless and very nicely decorated. Wish the rooms had bigger closets, but that"s the only con i can think of. Our extended family stayed there to attend a wedding in town in town and everyone loved it.

My second visit to the Lucerne, this is rapidly becoming my favourite hotel in NYC, it is reminiscent of a London club or an Oxford college. An oasis of peace and tranquility. Staff exceedingly helpful and pleasant, ideal location within walking distance of the Natural History Museum and Central Park.
