We stayed at the Lucerne Hotel in December 2006, just before Chrstmas, for a couple of days, and found this to be a very pleasant place, for my wife and myself and also our two children (12 and 15 years oldI).
The room was not very large, but the size was perfectly ok, since we went sightseeing throughout the days. Our children could stay with us, in the same room.
The two beds were very comfatable and absolutely clearn, the bathroom was also very clean and ok.
The location is absolutely perfect, if you want to discover New York.
The breakfast at the Nice Matin restaurant which is located in the ground floor (but I understand that this is a separate company) was truly excellent (not included in the hotel price) - there is a large choice. We also had dinner once at the Nice Matin - really very good (Mediterranen food), but rather a bit expensive (the price seemed nevertheless justified). The only drawback in the evening (not in the morning) at the Nice Matin was the high level of noise.....
The service of the hotel was efficient and friendly.
In our view there is not really any negative aspect, Just an issue of taste: the room we had was not very "modern" in layout and style.,...
Overall: Definitely worth a recomendation, definitely a decent balace between quality and price.
