Relaxing Comfortable Stylish Class
Upon entering Le Parker my car and luggage were immediately taken care of...front desk was pleasant and quick for check in on a busy Fri night...
Upgraded my $160 a night online room for one on the 38th floor with a spectacular view of Central Park (colorful trees)..cost was 30 dollars more a night...The room was more than i expected.... Extremely clean and stylish with plenty of space by NYC standards...The enormous feather beds were soooooo comfy...accented with a deep blue headboard.Im not sure why other postings criticized them ...Flat screen TV with DVD/CD was nice but never used except only for music...Bathroom was nice especially the lighted mirror...I highly recommend this hotel but do not pay more than 250 a night for standard and definitely get the park view rooms above 24th floors..j
What an unbelievable hotel! From the moment you walk in the staff made me feel extremely comfortable in the awesome lobby they have.
My room (which had a spectacular view of Central Park) felt very cozy even though it is very modern. The work area is large and ergonomic, and they have FREE high speed internet.
Usually when I am on the road (150 days a year) I avoid hotel restaurants like the plague, not here. They have 3 places, an amazing breakfast place, a cool French neighborhood bistro, and a hidden little burger place ($4.50!). All 3 were packed with locals and offered great value, even for NYC.
Last but not least, they have a gym that is better than my club I belong to at home, and a pool over looking the park that I did not want to leave.
Next time I am taking my family with me!
Very good hotel in a very good location, we stayed in a junior suite and found it very comfortable with lots of room and effective air con. Two minor points were that the mini bar was very over priced , and the bed was a little on the firm side, over all though this hotel is a good one and worth a visit, if only for its superb location close to central park.
I stumbled upon the Le Parker on hotwire (rated 4.5 stars), for $139. Check in was fine, friendly service. I was shocked to see that my room had a state of the art flat screen TV, one of those cool and comfy high-end desk chairs, and a floor to ceiling blue leather headboard. My only complaint was that my room was near the hotel elevators and ringing noises from the doors opening every time someone stepped on to the elevator awakened me. I highly recommend this property for those looking for a stylish room in a great location. For $139/night there is nothing to complain about.
We visited at New Years and had a junior suite which was nice. The restaurant was very overpriced and cocktails in the tiny, boring bar were $20.00. Service was nothing special.I wouldn't return.
The are of Le Parker Meridien make up for what it lacks in warmth. We booked a room for three adults and they had told us it would be two queen size beds. But when we arrived the beds were what they called 'double' Really only one person could occupy the bed.
So at an extra charge, we upgraded to a junior suite and there was going to be an extra charge if we wanted a view of Central Park. The front desk person we had made us feel that she was the customer and we were imposing to ask for more comfortable accomodations.
The rooms are too modern. Not cozy enough for the price they ask. The only redeeming quality was the convenient location of the Hotel.
One recommendation for management is to train the staff to make us the customer feel welcome. Don't treat us like we are a bother for such an expensive stay!
The bed looks good, but is hard as a rock!
We stayed at Le Parker Meridien on a trip to NYC this past week. This hotel is located in a great location with easy access to many destinations. The staff was soooooo friendly and attentive. The room itself was clean with some cool stuff: 32 inch tv, dvd and vcr. The bathroom was very clean and in good shape. They even upgraded us to a park view room. I have one complaint and it is big: the bed. It was the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept on. The design of the room includes a wooden platform and a mattress set on top of it. Seeing that in the picture should have been my first clue that the mattress would be hard as a rock. They tried to compensate by adding an additional layer to the mattress, but that too, was uncomfortable- you could see the outline of the previous guests pressed in to this top layer. After walking all over Manhattan for 3 days straight, a comfortable bed was greatly needed. I am not sure if the mattress needs to be replaced or if they just need to add a box spring. Either way, it is enough to deter me from staying at Le Parker Meridien again. Which is too bad because the staff was outstanding and the location is perfect.
One other thing: there are no soda machines anywhere in the building. Even the more upscale and highly prententious Ian Schrager hotel, HUDSON, has soda machines on each floor.
Again, attentive, friendly staff, nice "stuff", but the beds have got to go!
We visited Le Parker Meridien recently with a special rate from quickbook. The extremely gracious staff upgraded us to a king room with a view of Central Park. The room was stylish and immaculate. Very quiet, and just a fun place to stay. I recommend it highly!
Stayed at this hotel for three nights a week ago. Got an excellent rate of $150 a night through hotwire nearly a month before. Emailed a week in advance asking for two beds and a possible view of the park. Prompt email back said we'll try.
Arrived to a room with one King. Front desk greeted us with "Yes we have your reservation through Hotwire.com". Ended up in a cramped 5th floor room with a view of the street. Beds have only one mattress. Heating/AC unit as old as me and impossible to turn off so we broiled for three nights. Bathroom was tiny w/out an exhaust vent. Hey, I realize &150 (close to $500 for 3 nights isn't a ton to pay for a room at a "supposed" 4.5 star hotel but felt we were treated like the help.
All in all a bad experience, room--except for the entertainment unit--reminded me of a run of the mill Holiday Inn.
First Class Accomodation
The hotel is immaculate and well presented. The attractive interior of the lobby and atrium extends to the guest rooms which have recently been renovated. The staff are a bit 'snooty' and unhelpful but the location of the hotel and its proximity to Central Park and fine restaurants make up for this. When we arrived we were up-graded to a room which over-looked Central Park which made the stay even more enjoyable.

We took a red eye flight to the Big Apple, just to save time and of course save money. But I know the consequences of the flight very well. But after weighing out all factors, I still booked myself in the 9.35pm flight, reaching NYC at 5.45am East Coast time. Some of the factors include a free ride to LAX, save time and money on …
Highlights of the City - New York is the largest city in the USA and is also one of my favourite cities around the word.
The Statue of Liberty is one of the main attractions of the city and is well worth going to. The Empire State Building is another fantastic attraction to go to.
Times Square is a fantastic place to visit with its many …
... The Bronx, Queens, Greenwich village where we saw Carrie Bradshaws house from Sex and the City. We then headed to Little Italy in Soho for lunch. After lunch we headed to ground zero and the 911 memorial it was a very sombering experience but was good to pay our respects and hear the stories from the survivors. Our tour guide had just taken a tour group up the tower 2 hours before the planes hit the towers. He is truly a lucky man. We then headed up 5th Ave and onto Wall ...
... that tragic day. Even amongst all the tourists there the sense of sadness comes over you like a wave. We walked around each square and read each name paying our respects to each as we did. The 911 museum was only opened on May 21st, unfortunately we did get to go inside, the line was too long and moving very slowly. As we were in Lower Manhattan I was keen to get a closer look at Brooklyn Bridge, so we checked a map and off we went heading towards ...
... we settled on “The Cripple of Inishmaan” starring Daniel Radcliffe and in previews for the first time that night. It was heralded as a dark comedy and had received good reviews in London, so we took a chance and bought 2-for-1 tickets.
Tickets in hand we made our way directly to the subway and out of Times Square. We had some time to spare and wanted to explore our adopted neighborhood some more, so we stopped in at Maiden Lane on Ave. B. ...
