Le Parker Meridien Review

The Parker Meridian combines the comforts of a dependable large hotel with whimsical elements that keep visitors coming back. In the boffo lobby, lines form for iconic patty-palace Burger Joint, hidden behind a velvet curtain, which serves one of the city's best no-frills burgers. If you've got more scratch, there's always the famous $1,000 omelet at Norma's (the restaurant also serves slightly more cost-effective items). Rooms are modern functionalist, with low platform beds and televisions hidden in recessed, cherry-paneled cabinets. It's worth asking for a Central Park view, though city views are also impressive. The 20,000-square-foot gym is one of the largest in the city, and now includes a blow-dry bar, mani-pedi boutique, and spa.

    Location is perfect

    Although the rooms are small and there are no dressers or drawers to unpack your suitcase, the location makes the hotel wonderful. I would definitely pick this hotel again. A good value. It was easy to walk all over Manhattan and Central Park and take the subway everywhere else.
