The Lucerne is a lovely hotel in a great location. We will definitely return on our next trip to NYC. Literally one of the cleanest rooms we have ever stayed in, and we've stayed in some really nice hotels. No dust on any surface, even the closet shelf! We had a queen suite which was perfect for me, my husband...

Very pretty small hotel in a good area. Helpful concierge. Would prefer queen beds to double for sleeping two people. Bellman was unable to call a cab for us going downtown during rush hour, said it was "very very difficult;" we did it ourselves without a problem.

This is a quiet boutique hotel extremely well located on the upper west side, an easy walk to the subway, near many neighborhood restaurants and bars, and very close to Central Park. The room was spacious, the bed very comfortable, and the bathroom clean and new-feeling. I overheard a man checking in next to us say that this was his...

This hotel is one block from the subway line and around the corner from the bus line that goes across central park and stops very near the Metropolitan Museum of Art. There it connects with the other north-south bus lines that travel to midtown. The decor of the room was nice. The room a bit small, as was the bathroom....

Having been at the Lucerne Hotel in the past, we knew we would have another wonderful stay. And we did! Usually the rates are a bit more than we want to spend, but they were offering a reduced rate for the date we wanted, so we decided to take the plunge. The room was lovely, and the service was excellent....

If you want a hotel with easy access to everything but out of the main hustle and bustle this is it. Situated on the upper west side it is a short walk to Central Park and with the metro at the end of the road a short hop to all the main attractions. The bedrooms were spacious and immaculate although...

This is an elegant old hotel on the upper West Side of New York. The rooms and bathrooms aren't huge, but are beautifully decorated in an old world style. The location is fabulous.

This hotel is one I have stayed at and will continue to do so. The only issue I have is the quality of the hair blower in the rooms. It is attached to the wall and is poor quality. Next time I will bring mine from home. Other than that the bed was extremely comfortable and great place to stay.

I'm disappointed to hear that you did not find our hair dryers satisfactory. I want you to know that we have portable hair dryers upon request, and I'm sorry that our staff did not inform you. I hope you come back and give us another chance.

Staying in Upper West Side

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.
