“Great location, staff is friendly, modern”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

Great location, home of the hidden hamburger shop, and a front desk staff that is friendly and helpful.

The rooms are fine. Decent size for Manhattan, but not too large. You get no amenities here though. The gym is an extra fee, there are no bottle waters in the room, and the hotel operators are not friendly or helpful.

However, compared to other nearby hotels, I like the vibe and friendliness here more. Definitely get an upper level room and get one on the back bank of elevators so that you don't have to take two elevators to the pool (extra charge).

Also has a nice social lounge/bar.

Room Tip: Get a higher level room and on the back side elevator bank.

Dear calbearfan,

Thanks for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Just to clarify something you mentioned in your post: we charge a single $10 per day, per room Facility fee that gives all guests in the room wireless internet access, access to the rooftop pool, access to our fitness center Gravity and all of its group fitness classes, as well as local and toll-free calls from the room. We do not charge for these services individually. We hope you'll keep us in mind the next time your travels bring you back to New York!

Have a Good One!

Stayed here with friends and would definitely stay again. We had a king room suite, and although the space was sufficient. It's NYC so honestly, we didn't expect much by way of space in the room.

The location is perfect and it was a short walk to Columbus Circle from our location. The room was not full of fluff and was pretty bare bones, but who comes to NYC to stay in the room anyway?

If you want a fairly trendy, perfectly located room then this hotel would be good for you.

Dear Awashing05,

Thanks for the nice review. I'm glad the room worked out for you and your friends. Our Jr. Suites are just shy of 500 sq feet, which is on the larger side as far as NYC hotels go. We hope to see you here again sometime soon.

Have a Good One!

First of all, I've stayed in this hotel for about 15 years. 15 years ago, I loved how modern the hotel was; Le Parker Meridien was like no other in years past. Fast forward 15 years later, the hotel looks EXACTLY the same; it is no longer a cutting edge modern hotel. I really wish that this hotel could reinvent itself into a new, modern, cutting edge hotel. Not only has the design of the hotel and the rooms stayed the same, the rugs and furniture desperately need to be thrown out and replaced. Paint is chipped, drapes are old and smelly, alarm clock is dated, etc. I gave this hotel one more chance to get it together. The last time I stayed here, the room looked more like a hostel than a luxury hotel room. When I brought my concerns to hotel management, I was offered an upgrade on the next room that I booked. Management did make good on this offer and the room was better than the last one. However, the same issues exist. This hotel has lost its' edge and I can't think of any reasons why I would return to this particular hotel when so many choices exist. The icing on the cake was when a cockroach pranced across the white marble floor right after I checked in yesterday. I do want to thank Juan for his help with reservations at Norma's (breakfast was delicious today) and Srdan Jovanovich for making good on the offer for an upgraded room. Until Le Parker Meridien makes a serious overhaul in terms of upgrades and modernizing, I don't see any reason to stay at this particular hotel again.

Excellent location and .....nothing else. Overpriced Average rooms, small bathrooms, slow elevators, sloppy costumer service. Don't book on lower floors because rooms are to dark,and if you want to go to pool you need to use two elevators. On the 22 floor there is no sing , no information, where to go if you want to use pool on 42 floor. Very confusing.

Room Tip: Higher floors for more light and view.

Dear Beata K,

Thanks for sharing your experience with us. I'm sorry to read that you weren't a fan of the hotel. We have a wide variety of rooms at many different price points, so you have plenty of choices when it comes to picking a room that suits your needs. I'm sorry that you found getting to the pool confusing. To get our guests to their rooms as fast as possible, we have two banks of elevators: one for the lower half of the building and another for upper half. Getting to the pool from the lower half of the building is easy; guests just need to switch from one bank of elevators to the other at either the lobby level or the 22nd floor. We genuinely appreciate your feedback and hope that you'll consider staying with us again sometime in the future.

Have a Good One!

I had an okay stay at the Parker Meridien. The hotel is very hip, but things rather bare bones. One thing I always really appreciate is coffee and tea in the room. Not at this hotel, over 350 dollar per night and not even a free coffee of bottled water?

Tower rooms are full of light, sleekly decorated, and kept impeccably. Although our first room was a bit noisy (connecting room, which connected to a stranger) the hotel moved us within minutes of our call. The next room was larger and on even a higher floor (38). The view of Central Park and the roof top gardens was fabulous. The staff was very personable and helpful. The pool was a plus. We would definitely stay again, without question. Best hotel we've stayed at in Manhattan.

Room Tip: Choose a tower room on a high floor

Le Parker Meridien is in a great location, a few blocks from Central Park. Our room was on a high floor with gorgeous views of the park. However, the beds and pillows were so old and uncomfortable, we ended up being exhausted from a few nights of bad sleep. If you are someone for whom sleep and bed comfort is important, I would suggest staying at the Westin. We won't be returning specifically because of the bed situation.
