It was a beautiful hotel. rooms were MUCH smaller than I had anticipated, which wasn't too big of a shock and wasn't an issue. Staff was very helpful

A very welcoming and comfortable hotel. The staff was friendly and very helpful, answering any questions or providing assistance. The decor was elegant and relaxing without being pretentious or intimidating. A great location near public transportation, Central Park, and the Museum of Natural History. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, and will surely book there again.

Pros: Location and cleanliness are the big pros. Also, the shower was large and beds were comfortable. The cons: The room was not ready at the stated 4pm check-in time and then we had to wait almost 30 minutes for them to figure out where they had misplaced our luggage (which we had checked with them earlier in the day so we could go to a museum). Turns out they had delivered it to another room. Took three people to figure that out. Aside from the shower itself, the rest of the bathroom was tiny and the room as a whole was definitely small for what is supposedly a luxury hotel.

Convenient location, with restaurants in the neighborhood. Subway stop 1 block away. Staff --housekeeping, desk and doormen -- were helpful and friendly. Room and bathroom were clean. Both elevators worked during our stay.

We enjoyed our stay at the Lucerne Hotel. We loved the location, and the hotel restaurant was quite good. The staff was very responsive, and we felt well cared for. The lighting in the room could have been better, but that was our only complaint. I would definitely stay there again, and feel comfortable recommending this hotel to others.

Comfort and Convenience

Pros: I loved the affordable small suites since I was required to stay with a colleague who was on a different sleeping schedule.
Cons: Room smelled like it had many years ago been a smoking room but had been refurbished to be non smoking.
Location: Only steps away from the subway #1 line and Broadway. Everything you need on the sidewalk around the entrance.
I came to New York for a teaching conference and had never been in the big city before. Staying at the Lucerne made everything easier. It is only a block from a subway station and has a lot of restaurants, cafes, and markets within steps of its front door. I felt lucky that I had such a nice, quiet, and beautiful room to come back to at the end of each long day. Many of my friends stayed in competing hotels and, for the price, I felt this hotel was the best for comfort, convenience, beauty, and service. I will return!

Great Upper West Side Location

My stay at The Lucerne Hotel was wonderful! The only reason I didn't rank the hotel staff 5 stars was because our room wasn't cleaned one day. (We did not have the Privacy Please tag on the door.) However, when I called that evening to request fresh towels, a housekeeping director came to our room and did a quick refresh with towels and coffee supplies. The room was bright, spacious, and very comfortable. The location is outstanding, an easy walk to museums and Central Park. There are many charming restaurants and cafes within a few blocks. I will definitely want to stay there again.

I love the area...and the hotel is comfortable.

The air conditioning went out both nights that we stayed in our room. That was a problem as the outside temperature was close to 90 degrees. The manager did discount our room by $25/day. That seemed a reasonable accommodation.
