We stayed in a room overlooking Central Park, it was wonderful. The people are so helpful and friendly. I do miss the old Harry's Bar, the renovated room looks like a cafe and has terrible wine selection. Also miss eating in the big event room overlooking the park. They only use it for events now and it is such a waste of a beautiful room Very happy with the room and the people, not a great place to have a drink in the evening They had very little selection and the bar is not very inviting. Breakfast in Harry's bar was good. Overall a good place to stay..

Hotel's Favorite
Wonderful view of Central Park from my room, and Nicole was absolutely wonderful at check-in. I arrived much later than expected and she was extremely helpful and the hospitality was heartwarming, particularly in the face of a pandemic. Very much appreciated the room upgrade to one with a view overlooking the Park!

Well it’s been two years since we have been able to travel out of South Africa. My wife and I have stayed at the Park Lane many times and just LOVE it !!! Great location right on the Park. And a pleasant surprise when we arrived back there two days ago was that a beautiful full renovation was done in 2020 when NYC was shut down. The new bathrooms are particularly awesome and the beds as comfy as ever. Also great to see the staff again and that they have survived the past two years. Then an essential mention is EDITA who works on the front desk! She is awesome and it felt like she was a best friend or family member who we reunited with. Edita is an asset to the Hotel and does herself proud ! Awesomeness , out . . .
