“Great Location, Spacious Rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Overall good experience:

Pros:
- Great location - close to Central Park, Columbus Circle, 5th Avenue, Park Avenue, and short/easy walk to mid-town/Times Square, etc.
- Rooms spacious - we had a junior suite
- Late night room service and Sundae's are delicious
- Great service
- Super comfy beds w/ firm mattresses
- Great bathroom products & generous sizes, not the super small usual hotel sizes

Cons:
- WiFi terrible - I went back to 3G after two frustrating days
- No way to get a cup of coffee in the hotel (no in room coffee service) - espresso bar in the lobby only serves espresso - Luckily Starbucks across the street
- Gym in the basement and weirdly configured - part of it on one floor and the weights up a small, sketchy, narrow staircase
- No real lobby space to chill - bar/espresso area that's basically a hallway

Room Tip: North facing rooms have park view

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

We had received numerous recommendations for this hotel, so after reading many reviews, finally decided on this hotel for a 40th birthday trip with a group. Excellent service from the moment we arrived out front. The room was big, which we appreciate in NYC! We had a park view room and it was lovely. It wasn't loud and we had a great night's rest. Loved having the DryBar right downstairs for some pampering. Norma's for breakfast was outstanding; even better than the place we went the next day that the concierge sent us to. Our waitress was so friendly and even brought out cake for the birthday girl. Only complaint is the daily fee of $10 added to your bill; it just seems over the top. Fantastic midtown location, beautiful lobby, will definitely stay here again.

We received excellent customer service from all the staff. Location was great. The rooms were a good size, and beautiful. We were able to get an upgrade which was great. We needed a reservation for 12 people on a Saturday night. The lady at the concierge called several places to find a restaurant to accommodate us. She was very nice and professional, which was the typical service everywhere at the hotel. I highly recommend this hotel because of it's location and service.

Very good location near Central Park. Personnel was very friendly and helpfulness.
A few remarks :
Hotel is adapted for wheelchair user, nevertheless the equipment of the bathroom could be better adapted.
The fee of 10 US$ a day for WiFi;Spa;etc.... is remarkable and surprizing for a hotel in this category.
The elevators in the building and the ice cube machine are noisy when you have a room in the neighbourhood, and this extremely at night. More isolation is recommended and could be helpfull.

My husband and I had to make a last-minute trip to New York last weekend for a memorial and decided to stay at Le Parker Meridien because of its excellent location near Central Park and SPG's double points promotion. The pre-paid rate was also surprisingly less expensive than other properties putting it almost on par with what the Sheratons in Midtown were charging.

We had taken the red-eye in from California and were expecting to just to be able to drop off our bags so we were planning to kill some time over breakfast. So, I was pleasantly surprised to be able to check in around 10am. Check in was efficiently polite. As an SPG Gold member I was upgraded into a suite although I was still expected to pay a facilities fee that included Wifi and use of the (very beautiful) penthouse-level pool.

The suite was a very good size; the carpeting was a little worn and stained in areas but the decor was generally updated. The main showerhead was broken and somewhat detached from the wall but the bathroom was spacious and clean overall. I have friends in Midtown and the Upper East Side whose apartments are significantly smaller than our room, so I found the hotel to be a great value for what we paid when the upgrade was taken into account.

I had read that the pool tends to be overrun with kids. We didn't have a chance to enjoy it until Monday morning, when I figured families would have checked out and business folks were either at work or hadn't yet checked in. The pool was completely empty at 9:15am and was a great place to start the morning. I wouldn't normally say to bring your camera to a pool, but there are beautiful views from the rooftop deck just outside that you'll likely want photos of. The main downside of the pool is needing to switch elevators from the lower floors to get there - and with elevator maintenance, you might be waiting a while.

Loved being able to pop into Starbucks or Dean & Deluca across the street and then walk over to the park or Fifth Ave for some shopping. Le Parker Meridien gives you more space for your money than some of the surrounding (but more iconic) properties, making it great for travelers who enjoy luxury and location but still watch their wallets. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher room to avoid hearing street noise. The sixth floor is quiet but you will still hea...

Outstanding location close to Central Park. Museums within walking distance. Room was good size and was immaculate. Employees were very friendly and very focused on guest hospitality. Concierge recommended excellent restaurants.

Love the sense of serenity and calm about this hotel without taking itself too seriously.
Wonderful location and amazing burger joint. The rave reviews are spot on.
Sadly Seppi's French restaurant has been closed for several years and adjacent site remains vacant.
Rooms stylish, comfortable and quiet but no coffee machine. Not a major issue but something you don't realise you miss until its not available .
$10 a day fee for wifi/gym/pool is not acceptable in my view. Should be standard in a hotel of this category
Staff courteous and helpful.
A few improvements would make a big difference to an already great hotel.

Dear 5starTraveller2013,

Thanks for the nice review and helpful suggestions. We charge a mandatory $10 per day facility fee that includes internet access for an unlimited number of devices, access to our award-winning multi-level fitness facility Gravity, access to our rooftop pool overlooking Central Park, as well as fee-free local and toll-free calls from our guest rooms. We believe this offers guests a great value, as most other hotels in New York charge $15 + tax per device, per day for internet access in addition to a multitude of other fees for access to their fitness centers, pools, telephone services, etc.

Thanks again for your kind comments. I hope to see you again soon!

Have a Good One!
