“A great stay right in the heart of the City”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

We stayed here while attending a wedding in the city. I have to say, I was completely blown away from the modern design, elegant lobby and comfort of the Hotel. The pool, fitness center and spa were all fantastic, and the Hotel's location was excellent as well - a very short walk from Central Park. The breakfast was truly amazing as well, and the staff was courteous and friendly.

I used to "live" at this hotel, as I work in Manhattan frequently. It used to be such an amazing hotel, and the staff were like family. In recent years, and I'm guessing its management/ownership changes...well it's just become awful, overpriced, pretentious, rude and downright disappointing.

I'd love nothing more than to give the good old parker a great stamp of approval, but I can honestly say I will never go back to this hotel again. There are so many better options available.

Room Tip: If you do stay, pick a parkview king...it's the only way to really experience the hotel and get...

When I go to New York, I stay at Le Parker almost every time because the hotel is situated in mid town which is a great location with close proximity to 5th Avenue. If you love shopping in NY, you should consider this hotel. Since I am a platinum SPG member, I also receive upgrade some time and this time, I was lucky as the hotel gave me an upgrade room at very high floor. So it was relatively quiet.
However, I must stress that the staffs are not very helpful especially the door men. They talked to people and played with the mobile phone. Even I stood in front of them and asked for help, they just ignored me. When I had difficulty to move my luggage out of the entrance, they saw me and offered NO ASSISTANCE! Terrible!

My fiance and I loved staying here. It was a glamorous hotel to stay in, and room was very comfortable. Plenty of towels, great bath products from spa in basement of the building. Also a DryBar on site for hair blowouts!

Dear Julianat3,

I'm so glad that you and your fiance enjoyed your stay with us! Having DryBar in our Underground is definitely convenient when you want to hit the town looking your best! Next time be sure to check out tenoverten, our luxury nail salon, located right next to DryBar.

We look forward to seeing you both here again very soon!

Have a Good One!

Traveling for pleasure was made more pleasurable staying at the Parker Meridien. Staff @ check-in pleasant, burger joint very good, Norma's amazing and evening libations @Knave outstanding! Walk to so much NYC has to offer. Pool on roof AMAZING view. Rooms are very acceptable. A good value.

Room Tip: Don't miss a burger behind the curtain wall.

Excellent hotel, in a great location. The Norma restaurant is well over-rated, serving huge portion of very unhealthy food. Norma doesn't know we are already in 2014 and has no health-conscious items on the menu. If you have any special dietary requirements, such as gluten free meals, forget Norma or the hotel hamburger place -- they don't carry any gluten-free breads, bans or pastries, and according to the restaurant manger -- it's due to their liability concerns. Too bad this place is run by the lawyer and not by someone who thinks about the customer and the service

Amazing views, wonderful breakfast, pool is kid friendly. With a great spot for hair and nails on property it was a perfect place to stay for a local event. they also have the burger restaurant which is fun and delicious. Only negative is the noise - but to be expected from a city hotel.

Dear Traveltheworldforfood,

I'm so glad to read that you and your family enjoyed your time with us! The pool is a really great backup option for when the weather has you cooped up inside.
I'm sorry that things weren't as quiet as you'd have liked. NYC is many things, but quiet is not one of them! Nonetheless, guests that like things extra peaceful usually love our higher-floor rooms as they're further away from the street. Just sure to book a Tower room and you're set.

We look forward to your next visit!

Have a Good One!
