The Lucerne Review

Service is the strong suit at this landmark-facaded hotel, whose exterior has more pizzazz than the predictable guest rooms decorated with dark-wood reproduction furniture and chintzy bedspreads. Health-conscious adults will appreciate the gym on the top floor, with its city views; downstairs, the Mediterranean restaurant Nice Matin is a popular draw (ask about a guest discount). The affluent residential neighborhood has an impressive array of boutiques and gourmet food shops, and the American Museum of Natural History is a short walk away.

    I loved staying at The Lucerne!

    From the moment the doorman opened the door, I knew staying at The Lucerne would not just be a place to rest my head, but an experience! Our room was beautiful with two double beds and helpful amenities like a microwave and refrigerator.
    The UWS is my favorite neighborhood in NYC and this hotel had the perfect location. The subway was one block away. A few blocks the other way and we were enjoying beautiful Central Park.
    I look forward to nestling in at The Lucerne again!

    Size does matter!

    The Lucerne's rooms are big for NYC. We've stayed in the matchboxes (Mansfield) and the chains (Marriott TS) and the Lucerne beats them both in price and atmosphere. Right next to the subway and right off Amsterdam with all those great restaurants.
