“Love Le Parker Meridien”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2006

We loved the style and pretty much everything about Le Parker Meridien. The suites have beautiful modern décor, are very comfortable, and the location is especially good. It’s an easy walk to all of midtown. The subway is a half-block away.

The rooms have nice bright task lighting, if you like to read, which I do. The television wall can be turned to the bedroom or to the sitting room area. The bathroom is very nice and spacious with lots of counter space, but doesn’t have a tub.

The rooms have stocked refrigerators with sensors that automatically add charges to your bill. We used our refrigerator to store our own water, but it was an easy matter to have the charges removed.

We had a very special breakfast at Norma’s in the Parker Meridien. The meal was fantastic, and the beautiful modern décor matched the rest of the hotel. The Hamburger Joint is also located off the lobby with good hamburgers and fries, and cheap prices by NYC standards. There is also a coffee/snack stand in the lobby.

The staff was great.

My wife and I stayed here for one night on a Saturday in early October 2006. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we were forced to bring our two dogs with us, one of which is over 150 lbs. We paid $229 and were upgraded to a tower, park view room, potentially because of my Gold status with Starwood.

Room - very clean with a sleek, modern and colorful feel. That holds true for the ambience of the hotel in general.

Food - we did not eat at any of the establishments (why bother in NYC?), but did order both late night and breakfast room service. The food was signficantly above-average for room service (especially breakfast).

Staff - very businesslike, but quite friendly. Many took time out to greet our dogs.

Location - 2 blocks from Central Park, which is a huge plus if you are traveling with your pets.

Overall impression - For under $300/night in NYC during a busy season, you'd be hard-pressed to do better. I can't emphasize enough how great this hotel is if you have pets. There are no fees charged for pets and they have no weight limit.

  • Liked — Pet friendly hotel policy and the cleanliness of the rooms.

Stayed for 3 nights at the Meridein and found it hard to fault - room was well equipped, large enough (for Manhattan) and spotlessly clean. Staff were excellent and our requests were all met, i.e. a quiet room location away from elevators.

Restaurants are all excellent but beware of Norma's for breakfast as it gets very busy and it is advisable to book! Yes for breakfast. Norma's is the trendiest breakfast place in New York - food is great. They even have a $1000 option which is a Lobster fratatta with 10oz of caviar! You'll be glad to know that the rest of the prices are normal.

The hotel also has two other restaurants - we tried the French one for dinner one night and it was excellent. There is also a burger restaurant hidden behind a curtain in the lobby - we didn't try it but it always looked busy.

Location is excellent - just blocks to 5th , the Park or Times Square.

We would definitely go back.

I wish all my other hotel stays were as good as my Parker Meridien experience. We travel alot for business and for pleasure and always read reviews on TripAdvisor in advance of our trips and found the comments about the Parker to be mixed and questionable, so we decided to check it out for ourselves--what a pleasent surprise to find out that the positive comments were right and the negative ones were wrong. Our room was lovely with a wonderful view and lots of space. The temperature was perfect throughout the entire stay. Our bathroom looked and felt clean. We tried Normas and loved it--to much food. The burgers were great and worth the 15 minute wait. The hotel is close to everything. We only had one problem with the TV, but engineering came within minutes only to show us that our son pulled the batteries out of the control.
We will be back--try it for yourselves, don't just believe what you read.

I stay here yearly on business. The hotel is OK but in a state of decline.

The bathroom was in need of a refurb. Some mildew. The corners throughout the room could have done with a good dusting/vac. The temp of the room was hard to control. Windows always need a wash. Some towels were thin.

The charging for the gym and internet now after so many years is petty. Ask for a room on the Starbucks side and you can use their wireless or there are some other open networks with in range.

Staff was either great or ambivalent. Elevators are better then last year. No room service drama this trip but the rates seem higher. Line at the Burger Joint was long so I ate at Seppi's and the service was understaffed and overwhelmed.

For the price point this hotel is now at you can do better in the neighbourhood. It is a shame the Drake and Plaza have closed. If you want something of a similar style try the Chambers down the street (although there are some issues there my coworkers have said). The Blakely is good (but not "trendy"). The Essex House and Pierre have changed hands. Avoid the Hemlsley Park Lane. If you big on points the Hilton is close and they allow you to double dip. There is supposedly a new hotel opening near Columbus Circle that I will try on my next trip as I really like this area.

This hotel will do in a pinch if you don't buy into the hype and just need a place to crash.

  • Disliked — bathroom, $,
  • Tips/Secrets — scan for working wireless networks in range before paying

THE BREAKFAST is horrible !
It was said to be the best in NYC, but from what I could see it's a shame to serve this kind of dishes. I received a pancake covered with a salty caramel sauce with peanuts and recovered with maple syrop and fruits, on the side, a cup of salty butter... originality ? Trust me that's an horrible dish ! The place was very, very "snobish" and the staff terrible...
For the hotel, I like the design (flat TV and modern bedrooms, but very samll room) but staff people are unpleasant and not polite. The price was very high and really to high for the general quality !

  • Liked — design
  • Tips/Secrets — Avoid breakfast. Good hamburger and very good french rest.

We were booked for 3 nights at Le Parker Meridien, but left the morning after the first night. We arrived to find a so-so, tiny room with a horrible bathroom... there was plaster FALLING OFF the ceiling, which was also covered in black mold spots. The shower reeked of mold and the drain also didn't work correctly, so taking a shower was like swimming. We decided to deal with it for the night as we had an event to go to, but that night the bed was extremely uncomfortable and the temperature in the room was unbearable.

So, first thing in the morning, I called down to ask for a different room. Her first reaction was not, "oh I'm so sorry, can you explain?" She said, "why didn't you say something to us yestereday?" She then haughtily told me that they would arrange for a new room and that we could leave our bags with a bellman until later, when they would get us a new room. She also lectured me for complaining about the AC and said that it's controlled by the entire building, not the room. BUT THERE IS A BRAND NEW DIGITAL THERMASTAT RIGHT ON THE ROOM WALL!!

Well, with that attitude combined with the mold all over the bathroom, we decided to LEAVE. We got on the Internet, found another hotel (which actually cost us more), booked it and BOLTED.

DO NOT STAY THERE... THEY ARE VERY, VERY RUDE AND WILL NOT ACCOMODATE YOU.
