The breakfast came with my room at The Park Lane Hotel NYC. It was outstanding. The buffet was clean and top notch food, the attendants offered custom prepared breakfast, and they also brought me oatmeal with all the fixings. Fresh fruit was plentiful (strawberries, cantaloupe, blueberries) and the view is to die for. And let's not forget how wonderful the... More

Thanksgiving Buffet -- incredibly friendly service and the food was excellent. Probably the best turkey and stuffing I've had in a restaurant. And the views of Central Park from every seat in the restaurant -- you won't find anything else like this in New York!

The staff was very friendly, we loved the snaks and drinks everyday from 5-7 for the hotel guests this was very special and with a beautiful view of central park. Room was clean but bathroom very old.

If you xwant a correct brunch/lunch with Central Park view the park room is a good option. The choice is just correct but what is served is good. Nice champagne. But is is not cheap.

Our window view was the "city view" which was an alley way of other buildings. We were kind of hoping to see the city. The other option is the "park view" which is Central Park. The times we needed room service they were very efficient. The king size bed & room was gorgeous & very comfortable.

This hotel has a need for a face-lift for sure. The location is PERFECT if you don't mind worn furniture and depressing decor. The room colors are washed out beige, the furniture is chipped, but the people that work there are truly warm and hospitable. If you don't spend a lot of time in your room, and want a great... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
