Le Parker Meridien
Travel Blogs from New York City
We woke up in New York and I felt there was something different, something in the air, the birds sounded as if they were speaking to me, I could suddenly understand the Spanish cleaners in the hostel. What was it I thought, what is this strange quivering feeling in my undercrackers? That was it, I needed meat, I DEMAND TO HAVE SOME MEAT. So that …
So many things to write, so little energy to do so. This place is non-stop and the constant walking, though healthy, can be a little draining. And as you will read, we often find ourselves needing a break in the day and jump on the express train back to our place for an afternoon siesta. We apologize in advance for this entry, its difficult to tell …
... place were the two towers stood was again a very moving experience. The two waterfall pools that they have built are very beautiful and the Freedom Tower is going to be amazing once it is finished. Next try to get to Times Square, some how ended up in Brooklyn so had a look around there instead, including chilling in a park for a bit. While I might be struggling with the subway navigation there is thankfully nothing wrong with my map reading skills ...
... so funny). It was the same with music too - I came across Chinese mandolin, Mexican, Latin American, saxophone, drummers. There were street shows and families taking picnics or jogging and cycling... the park seem to have a representative from every culture and I loved being a part of it. However, I could not find a restroom (toilet to you lot) so I looked on the map and decided that the Trump Building was a good place to go! ...
... to the Metropolitan Museum of Art... but it's closed on Mondays. Anyway, there was a puppy store nearby so we went and had a look inside and saw some of the cutest dogs in existence, but unfortunately I didn't take any photos. Afterwards we went for a walk through Central Park but Amanda was very tired so we stopped off on a bench so she could have a lie down. Later on, we got the subway to 1st Avenue to go and check out a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Parker Meridien New York City
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...
What an unbelievable hotel! From the moment you walk in the staff made me feel extremely comfortable in the awesome lobby they have.
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.
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.
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.
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.
