“Great New York hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

As noted by others the location is great - close to restaurants and Central Park (much appreciated by us marathon runners), room was big, bathroom was normal hotel (not New York hotel) sized, room service was fast and good. In any other city it would be a very nice hotel, in New York it qualifies as a great hotel. They have a slightly dodgy practice of charging an extra $10/day fee (a non resort resort fee?) but it does give you internet (as Starwood Gold internet is free anyway so it means it is just a $10/day extra charge onto your bill. Go figure.). Not a major but not a good practice.
Will definitely check it out again next time I am in New York.

We've always loved staying here due to its unbeatable central location and unpretentious manner.

The rooms are showing some age, but their spacious, quiet and the new furniture is very stylish and modern.

Their in-house restaurant, Norma's, is some of the best breakfast in NYC, and we appreciated being penciled in at the last minute for a Saturday morning reservation.

Only thing keeping this from great would be the somewhat overwhelmed staff and elevators. We requested a restaurant reservation through the concierge, gave our information for a confirmation, but never heard back either way. Also, the elevators tend to get very busy and require you to pad any travel time by five minutes or so just for the commute down to the lobby.

Le Parker Méridien, like any good New Yorker, knows it's value is in it's location, location, location. Adjacent to Carnegie Hall and overlooking Central Park to the North and Midtown to the South, this well known hotel makes a solid first impression with sleek MacBooks at check in and a lobby decor that manages to integrate old New York architecture and the modern flair this hotel strives for. The service is friendly and efficient.

Like all things gilded, a scratch below the surface reveals all that glitters is not gold. The rooms are bland, though the Park facing rooms have a great view and even in Manhattan I would not expect to have to pay an extra $10 for use of a pool or fitness facility at a hotel of this caliber. The bathroom door needed paint, the cold water cover was missing from the shower and the towels are reminiscent of the Days Inn circa 1980. Fellow travelers reported that the solution to a complaint about the temperature resulted in engineering coming to the room and opening the window--an old building in New York solution, for sure, but one expects a little more panache from this address and this reputation.

Tourists will love it but a discerning business traveler will find it unremarkable.

Le Parker Meridien was by far the best hotel I haved visited in NYC, and I have stayed at many. The location on West 56th St. is awesome and we were able to easily walk to the theatre district, Hell's kitchen, and the shopping along 5th Ave and the upper East and West side. It is also just a few just a few blocks from Central Park. The lobby is beautiful, check in was quick and friendly. I absolutely loved the room....very minimal in decor, a nice size, spotlessly clean. It had everything needed to be very comfortable. The bathroom looked very updated, had plenty of counter space. Large flatscreen tv, plenty of good lighting, comfortable beds. I was just thrilled with the whole set up. Each of the employees I encountered were friendly and helpful. Loved the ambience of the lobby bar. Really loved everything about this propertly and will stay here again for my next trip.

Almost always stay at Le Parker when in NYC. If you want mid-town location is great. Recommend checking out view from roof pool. Been in many rooms. All okay not great. As expected in NYC bathrooms are tiny. Both restaurants and the bar are great. Service is very good. Unless you are very high up do not pay for "park" view. You see a building or two. Also tower elevators are notoriously slow and crowded. My daughter waited over 20 minutes today!!

I went to this hotel at christmas for a second time and again we had a great stay. The hotel is located on 56th street which was a good location for us and is only a few blocks away from time square and the main atmosphere of the city.

The hotel itself is modern, clean and a pleasant place to stay. The rooms are spacious and i would say good value for money for a 4 star hotel in New York. I would recommend this hotel to anyone with a family or couples.

The only downside for me was the restaurant for breakfast. My children are fussy eaters and could not find anything to eat however the burger restaurant next to the lobby was brilliant and had a great atmosphere with good food for kids.

However for me the best part of the hotel was the rooftop pool. The views are stunning over looking central park and you can see the whole city!

Overall a great hotel, with good amenities and an ideal location.

Excellent location: walk to Central Park, theater district, subway is within one block, business areas, great restaurants. Room was fine. Great view from high floors. Breakfast at Norma's restaurant in lobby is wonderful. Staff was enthusiastic and very helpful. Nice bar in the lobby.

Looking forward to next stay.
