We chose the Lucerne because it was one of the few affordable hotels in the Upper West Side towards Central Park. It is nice enough but the room is very small (which may well be the norm in New York) - the queen bed we had dominated the room, there was almost no floor space apart from a narrow strip around the bed which made it difficult to manoeuvre our suitcases. My wife was woken up quite early (approx 7am?) by room service starting their rounds in other rooms on our level. Breakfast was a discount coupon (15% from memory?) at the cafe next door - the food there was nice enough. The subway (on the same line to Time Square) was within walking distance, Central Park is about a 10 minute walk. Overall not a bad hotel but we wouldn't go out of our way to stay there again.

A excellent hotel. The rooms are of a good size and lovely and clean. The hotel is in a good neighbourhood. The staff here are both professional and courteous. If you don't want to stay in the middle of the city, this is for you. Subway station close by so travelling into the city is no problem. Ideal location for central park. We loved our stay here and definitely recommend The Lucerne.

This hotel had it all: location one block from the #1 subway line, three blocks from Central Park, lots of good restaurants all around, very QUIET, spotless and very comfortable rooms, and efficient and professional staff. The concierges and bellmen were most helpful in getting us cabs, suggesting activities and restaurants, and giving us all kinds of tips. This was a great find, and the price was definitely right for the caliber of hotel this is. I would absolutely return in no time flat; I can't rate it highly enough!

Room tip: Ask for a room at the end of the hall; they're bigger than the others!

I stayed at The Lucerne from September 1st to 4th 2011 and it was wonderful. There were no bed bugs, the room/hotel was extremely clean, employees were helpful and the location on the Upper West Side was wonderful (tons of restaurants and little bars).

The room was spacious compared to what I've stayed in before and nicely decorated. The service at the hotel was superb and I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others. Had a fabulous time in NYC!

Tucked on a lovely street on the Upper West Side, you feel a part of the neighborhood. Convenient to walk to attractions, restaurants, and subway. In fact, we walked down Broadway all the way to Time Square. The rooms are a bit small, but who wants to spend a lot of time in their room in NY? Everything was very clean, bathroom and amenities were very nice, and the lobby staff was helpful. I would definitely stay here again.
