Just returned from 5 nights in NYC and stayed at the Lucerne, we was in room 503. No view to speak of from the window however the room had most things needed for a city break, from an iron to an umbrella!. The only thing I found missing was tea and coffee making facilities however there is a coffee cart at the corner of 79th and Broadway for morning coffee and bagels to start your day. The 1 line is 2 minutes stroll from the hotel to get you to downtown and all the tourist attractions. On Amsterdam avenue there are bars and restaurants galore for all tastes and wallet size. We visited Jakes Dilema for a refreshing few beers before heading back out of an evening. There is a seating area outside to sit and people watch. The staff at the hotel was so helpful, shoutout to Liz (concierge) who helped us with transfers and to print attraction tickets, Liz can help with theatre tickets and attraction tickets if needed and is a wealth of knowledge. Room was spotless, a good size for NYC, maid called everyday and changed the sheets and replaced the towels daily. The doormen was very helpful with a cheery good morning as you passed them. As I've said the location of the hotel is great to be out of the hustle and bustle of NYC however the 1 train gets you to where you want to be in a few minutes. It was the first time we used the subway and believe me don't be put off t was easy to navigate and guards at the station are great and very helpful if needed. Would definitely be going back to NYC and will definitely book the Lucerne again. Collapse

I couldn’t seriously fault the place. My room was comfortable, clean and kept beautifully over 5 days. The hotel tries to retain its original character so if you’re after ultra-modern it’s not the place: it’s traditional and sort of shabby chic in an authentic way. The staff was friendly and helpful. They have a wine hour in the foyer each afternoon which I loved, getting in with sore feet after a day downtown! Located in a residential neighbourhood so had a (relatively) quiet feel, with great neighbourhood shops and delis etc on doorstep, though only a hop from main thoroughfares. Comfy bed. If I had to moan: shower not great (typical NYC?) and I hated that I couldn’t open the window and let in air, having to rely on air-conditioner instead. I have a thing about airing rooms so this did niggle but probably wouldn’t bother most people. Collapse
A very special small hotel

I was booked into a sister hotel of the Lucerne, which closed for remodeling, so my reservation was transferred to the Lucerne and upgraded! There is something very lovely about this hotel. Cheerful doorman or, sometimes working in concert, doormen! Small restful lobby, inviting one to sit. Observant concierge, who realizing I was about to take the cross town bus, told me I had to get an extra ticket--free with my subway pass, but required on this bus. The upper west side location is perfect. At the hotel end of the block, the cross-town bus (across Central Park) and other buses; at the other end of the block, the subway! and buses. I walked to and from Lincoln Center 4 or 5 times. I enjoyed the small grocery/deli/counter across the street. There was a wine shop across the street. My room was huge. The two bedroom windows and one bathroom window faced another building, but there was "light" and a tiny view. I was most impressed with the details of the room, and have included photos of these details. This hotel, and her rooms, are "real" and "substantial" and beautiful. At first, the particular style of the Lucerne, well, it wasn't my style, but I recognized her beauty. I actually unpacked into the clean drawers! The housekeeper was exceptional. Aveda products! So, how well did I like the Lucerne? Enough to be returning for a full week this summer with 2 granddaughters. Yes, the Lucerne IS "worth it." Collapse
Beautiful building in convenient location

Comfortable rooms, staff attentive. Standard but a bit bigger room in size for NYC. Quiet and cozy bed linens.Room service prompt and enjoyable. Nothing extraordinary but just what we needed for a stay while attending Opera

Was there in Oct 2017 for a work trip. Stayed two nights (Wed and Thurs). Friendly staff. Spacious room for NYC. Bathroom standard size - single sink, toilet, and bathtub/shower - that's all. While the decor is a bit traditional for my taste, the room was clean and bed felt fresh. Plenty of places to eat in the neighborhood - you just have to step outside! Subway stop on the same block - again, great convenience. Hotel is a couple blocks from Zabar's market. I did not get a chance on this trip, but hotel is only a couple long blocks to Central Park and the American Museum of Natural History. Looking forward to returning to this hotel when I am not working and can just live like a local in the Upper West Side! Collapse
