My husband and I have stayed at the Lucerne Hotel on the upper West Side of Manhattan numerous times. We have also recommended it to friends who loved it as much as we do. It is a charming hotel that is architecturally beautiful. It is quiet elegance. The lobby is so inviting with its large comfortable chairs and antique decor. The manager is a delightful man, and the staff is excellent in providing outstanding customer service. The beauty of this hotel is that it is in one of the loveliest... Read more

I normally don't review hotels. Typically, the accomodations are "fine" and the nature of the place is just what I would expect. I want, however, to call out the Lucerne Hotel for being helpful when I needed it. I arrived the other day with a reservation in hand -- only to find that the reservation (which had been made for me by my client) was for the wrong day -- the evening before I arrived. It was 1030 PM, I was tired, and the hotel was full. It looked ugly -- but the Lucerne came throu... Read more

There aren't many options on UWS and the location is fabulous! Rooms are small, yes, but not terribly small by NYC standards- space is a hot commodity in the city that never sleeps. Lobby is nice but small. One elevator was broken. Rooms are tired, smell musty and seem circa 1980. But they are clean which is a huge plus. Beds are very comfortable. AC worked great. Forgot tooth paste and they sent up the tiniest tube I have ever seen. No mini bar in room? That was a disappointment but they did... Read more

As other reviewers have said. This is a clean and classy hotel away from madness of Times Square and Theatre District. Liz the Concierge was great. Staff was accommodating. Door man did amazing job packing luggage in car upon departure. Close to subway, great local grocery market and many delis and restaurants. Wonderful value. We will return. We are from Texas and did not bring warm enough clothes for a NYC March.

The staff is amazing, and the rooms are very large for a NY hotel. The neighborhood has a great mix of restaurants and is not at all "touristy". It is very close to the park, the museum of natural history, and Lincoln Center. The subway is at the end of the block, which is a big bonus. This is our second stay here and will be back again at the end of the month highly recommend The Lucerne!

This small hotel is well located on the UWS. Rooms are clean and nicely furnished if a bit on the small side, but this is Manhattan after all. Baths ditto - small but clean and certainly adequate. I like counter space and this hotel bath provides that. Relatively quiet - ask for an upper floor, of course. No coffee maker in room but you can request one. All in all, satisfactory for price, location, and cleanliness. Free wifi is nice.

We loved the Lucerne Hotel. It has spacious rooms with an old school NYC decor. The staff is simply outstanding. It is located in a great, quiet neighbourhood with a subway station down the block. There is a terrific deli (Amsterdam Deli) on the corner and a nice restaurant (Coppola's) across the street. There is also a 24 hour (Duane Reade) store, and news stand near by. We would not hesitate to come back here. The only negative comment that I would make is that the building's windows cannot ... Read more

Hotel is quite dated but clean. There are some good places to eat around and a close walk to Central Park. Also close to the subway which is really useful. We learnt the hard way that taxi's are very expensive. A bit far away from attractions but takes 5 minutes to get to Times Square and 30 minutes to get to the 9/11 memorial via subway. MUCH longer via taxi.

Whilst some people choose to be right in the middle of the madness of time square, we chose to stay slightly out of the chaos at the Lucerne. The location was great for us as it was right by a subway station meaning all the tourist destinations were only a few stops away but we also got to experience a bit of what real life New York is like too. Bagels with the locals for breakfast :) The hotel is clean, comfortable and well decorated. We did find the room to be a little warm, but never asked ... Read more

We stayed one night in room with two double beds which was fine for one night. We arrived late staff were helpful and check in and check out very straight forward. The restaurant downstairs looked nice and people were coming in off the street for brunch. There are also a few nice deli's around within walking distance. Great hipster coffee place across the road called Irving Farm serving snacks and best coffee - full of young people wearing gym gear!!

The Lucerne is a lovely red-brick building in the Upper West Side, perfectly sandwiched between the gorgeous green of Riverside Park and Central Park and surrounded by so many dining and shopping choices the mind reels. The service is quietly elegant, although I'd say watch out for a fairly high-pressure sales job from the concierge if you dare approach for some simple advice. We tend to do our research well before travelling anywhere, so we don't typically need the services a concierge provide... Read more

I stayed at the Lucerne for three nights in mid-July and found the experience exactly what I was looking for. The hotel is small, very clean, and has one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in! While it was softer than what I have at home, which made me a bit nervous about how well I would sleep, I shouldn't have worried. Perhaps it was because I was exhausted due to lots of walking and high heat, but either way, it was heavenly. The room was quite spacious, by New York standards. ... Read more
