Certificate of Excellence
The Lucerne offers New York City visitors luxury accommodations in the heart of Manhattan's posh Upper West Side. The Lucerne's building is a treasured landmark built in 1904 that recently underwent a multi-million dollar renovation. The result is European-inspired architectural charm combined with sophisticated and modern accommodations. The Lucerne's guestrooms and suites represent the ultimate in comfort. Featuring full-size work desks, plush bedding, this luxury Manhattan hotel caters to your every need. Business and leisure travelers will appreciate The Lucerne's complimentary high-speed WiFi and printing services. It's no wonder then that The New York Times' review of The Lucerne proclaimed: "Service unrivalled." Enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the hotel's Nice Matin restaurant and sidewalk cafe, a popular destination beloved by both locals and tourists. Every Thursday evening, wind down with some wine during The Lucerne's complimentary wine hour, located in the hotel lobby. The Lucerne is just a short subway ride to Lincoln Center and walking distance of the American Museum of Natural History, The Children's Museum of Manhattan, Columbus Circle, Riverside Park, Central Park, and several fine restaurants, specialty boutiques, and cafes.

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.

The hotel is very nice. We had a corner room with a view. The bed and linens were luxurious. We had room service for breakfast and it was delicious and arrived 10 min before expected. The fitness facilities met our needs.

I take the train to Penn Station then the subway, I think the A train and get off on 79th. You come out and have to walk less than a block. I would recommend this over a cab. I do not recall the cost but it is certainly less than taxi.

We asked for a Keurig coffee maker & coffee supplies and they were happy to provide. I think if you request something they try their best to provide it.

"Ask for city view."
"We stayed on the 8th floor and it was quiet."
"Request a view of Amsterdam or 79th Street. Even when I had a room with no view, the room itself is so homey, it hardly mattered."
"Beware of the hotel's deceptive pricing. The fee serves only to keep room rates artificially low."
"ask for room in higher floor"
