    Historical Traveler Reviews The Lucerne Hotel New York City

    Lucerne - among the best

    from

    I was part of a large group of people who stayed at the Lucerne Hotel this past weekend. Without exception, every person raved about the hotel. Great location, very reasonable price, comfortable and very clean accommodations, and most importantly, extremely friendly service.

    I do not usually write reviews of this kind, but could not resist the opportunity in this case.

    As advertised

    from

    stayed here in late may for 4 nights and was satisfied in every aspect of my stay. the staff was courteous and attentive. the location ( upper west side ) was, well, one of the nicest locations in manhattan. great restaurants, bars, within walking distance, the subway less than 1 block away. value? show me a better value in manhattan. would i stay here again? absolutely. jm 6/16/03

    Nice pleasant surprise

    from

    Stayed at this hotel in August of 2002. We mentioned during check-in that it was our anniversary and we were immediately upgraded to a suite. Very nice! Liked that it was on the upper west side and away from the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to walk. the hotel restaurant was closed for renovations or something, but still were many nice restaurants in the area to take advantage of.

    Loved the Lucerne!

    from

    I stayed at the Lucerne for two weeks in May and for the price they charge, this hotel gives huge bang for your buck! The rooms are small but comfortable and completely adequate for the needs of any traveller who doesn't plan to spend too much time in a hotel room while visiting this exciting city! The continental breakfast is quite lavish by most standards and goes far beyond what they could "get away with" for the reasonable rates they charge here. The hotel is very clean and safe and all the staff are friendly and courteous. For a small charge I had high speed internet access in my room, but there's also a business centre here that you can use free for half an hour if you want to briefly check your email. The fitness centre is small but outfitted with everything you need to stay in shape and exercise comfortably while you're travelling. And there are many good affordable restaurants nearby, most notably Monsoon, a Thai place that's become my favourite, and NiceMatin, a French/Mediterranean restaurant/bar adjacent to the hotel. For location, price, service and amenities I'd stay at the Lucerne again in a heartbeat!

    Very nice hotel

    from

    We visited the hotel Lucerne for Christmas, we found it to be located close but far away from all of the hustle and bustle of New York, we had a two room sweet, it was very nice, and a very friendly staff.

    Very Pleasant Hotel

    from

    I found the Lucerne to be a very good value; we stayed in a two room suite with mini-bar and fridge, and a continental breakfast was included with the price. The rooms were very clean, and spacious for New York City. The staff was very friendly, and I would definitely stay there again.

    Nicest hotel in NYC

    from

    We were looking for a hotel away from the bustle of midtown and we found it at the Lucerne. Our queen suite was spacious (we've stayed at NYC hotels where the room was unbelievably tiny and paid more money), and you just can't beat the location. It's in one of the nicest neighborhoods in NY. Everyone at the hotel was extremely helpful and staying at the Lucerne made our weekend in NY a real pleasure.

    Good for the money

    from

    We had a good stay at the Lucerne. The staff was very attentive, but I knew more than they did about Metro passes and the airport check-in than they did by studying on the internet.

    The room was quite large and nicely decorated. There was a problem with towels/ashtray/coffee replenishment.

    The in-room coffee maker was a lifesaver although there are coffee shops available on every corner in NYC. The computer in the conference room was free for 1/2 hour per day. The in-room web TV is $10/day. The rooftop deck was closed for renovation, and it would have been nice if it had been open as that was one reason I picked the Lucerne.

    Plenty of reasonably priced restaurants within waking distance. I would stay there again.

    Fine, European-style hotel

    from

    I've stayed at the Lucerne twice, and both times have been quite pleased. I travel a lot for business and because my company has negotiated rates, I generally wind up staying in chain hotels (which are about as appealing as chain restaurants). The Lucerne is small and the amenities are fewer than, say, a W or similar, but it's charming, the people are very nice, and the neighborhood is a place where "real New Yorkers live," as our driver explained. Finally, the rates are generally competitive.

    Good upper west side hotel

    from

    The Lucerne is a very nice basic hotel. My room was small but very comfortable. Not much of a lobby but a nice area--close to Columbia University.
