We took advantage of a summer special deal (20% off) and booked for three days. The location is perfect, one block from the subway stop (#1 line) so easy access to the train station and all of NYC. The staff was great, helpful in giving advice on local bars or places to eat. The room and bath were nicely appointed,... More

Our family reunion at the Lucerne was fabulous. I loved the hotel, ambiance, room, staff...what's not to like? everything was amazing. There is construction next door, so we asked for a room on the other side of the hotel and the staff graciously accommodated us and the rest of our family. I just wish I had a view, although some...

A beautiful red stone hotel in the Upper West Side region, ideal for a more peaceful stay in NYC, away from the hum and buzz, but still within easy reach of the attractions. Central Park is a short stroll away for lazy days. The room was of a good size with a queen size bed, plenty of wardrobe space and... More

Most reasonably priced. Excellent amenities. Efficient front desk. Proximity to museum and to the subways - especially the latter - a HUGE plus. VERY decent restaurant attached (Nice Matin). Wifi connection rather slow, but free.

I had some meetings on the upper west side and so booked myself into The Lucerne. I am so glad that I did. The room was comfortable (the bed and pillows in particular!) and I got a great night's sleep. In the morning, Riverside Park is just 2 blocks away for a beautiful morning run along the Hudson River. Breakfast... More

Although the room and bathroom were a bit small, I would assume it's quite standard for the upper west side of NYC. I've stayed at the upper east side and lower east side before, and this hotel was overall worth the slight higher price. It was relatively clean, reliable internet, good room service, and the gym was satisfactory (free weights,... More

We booked a family suite for my husband and our two teenagers and got a double bed room, a room with twin beds, plus a comfortable living area and bathroom. It was reasonable for New York, with friendly service and the restaurant downstairs, Nice Matin, was fine (if expensive). We loved the location - close the subway on Broadway and... More

Really enjoyed our stay! In town to see grandchildren and this was perfect and 8 blocks away! The rooms were very clean and quiet. The price was very reasonable for the quality and style. The doorman and concierge were most helpful . Rooms are nicely decorated . Hallways are quiet , close to lots of nice restaurants.

When my husband told me he got a hotel for an extremely reasonable price on a Saturday night I thought, great, it's going to be a dump. But, wow, this place is amazing and I'm more than just pleasantly surprised! It's clean, obviously well kept, the room is large by NYC standards, it's quiet and very comfortable. I would highly...

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
