I usually stay in Midtown on trips to New York, but my itinerary on a recent trip put me on the upper west side. I found the Lucerne on Tripadvisor and it looked like a good choice. Bottom line: it was. The hotel is vintage with considerable charm. The affiliated restaurant, Nice Matin, is quite a nice bistro--food is good,...

The Lucerne is great value if you want that extra space in a room that most other hotels can't deliver. We have travelled with our daughter the past two visits, and there is more than enough room for all of us. We ended up with Two queens, and found that there is a second room with a pull out couch....

Great location, spacious rooms, great restaurant and friendly staff. I recommend this hotel highly. Breakfast at Nice Matin is a real pleasure and the beds and bathrooms are better than those found in most NY hotels.

The hotel is clean, comfortable and well-maintained and offers reasonable value. The staff is professional and attentive. Despite being full for a busy October week-end, we were never bothered by noise from other guests.

The Lucerne Hotel is a gem. There are not many hotels in this area, but even if there were, The Lucerne would shine. Incredibly friendly staff. Very comfortable, clean rooms. Not glitzy or ultra-modern, but very solid.

The Lucerne is in a very (relatively) serene part of NYC on the upper west side. The room was clean, spacious, light with a view of a distant midtown. Staying here didn't feel like the concrete mountain range of midtown, it was more neighborhoody, safe and pretty quiet. A great respite. Lots of very good restaurants within a five minute...

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
