Very clean, professionally run, perfectly located. The Lucerne has it all. The red line subway is one block away and runs to many of the attractions you come to New York for. The area around the hotel has numerous excellent restaurants as well.

The hotel was close to many restaurants, Central Park, had a wonderful restaurant Nice Matin attached to it, and had been upgraded with many new amenities. The only drawback is that it was a bit of a distance to any Subway entrances. Staff were wonderful at hailing taxis.

The shower drain was completely clogged and flooded the bathroom. My daughter was very unhappy about the ants in the room. The hotel itself is rundown and antiquated. I’m a native NYer who travels there monthly for business. I’ve stayed at every well known hotel in the city and the extremely dated Lucerne is at the bottom of that list. (And the room’s AC was also extraordinarily noisy.) I needed to be in the UWS. If you don’t, there is zero reason to even consider the Lucerne.

No TV for entire stay, after multiple complaints and entry into your texting system. It was finally fixed late the night before check out. Each day I notified the front desk, each day it was not fixed. No apology, no discount toward stay was offered.

We had a fantastic stay at the Lucerne. The location was very convenient for us as our son lives a few blocks away. The hotel staff is friendly and efficient, the rooms were very comfortable and clean and the service was excellent overall. I felt it was excellent value and I will be back.

Although we weren't able to check-in early, the hotel allowed us to store our luggage while we walked through Central Park. Debra, at the front desk, was amazing. It was one of the hottest days on record in NYC and on our third trip back to check if our room was ready, recognized that one of the guests was overheating (63 years old). She gave us water to make sure we stayed hydrated and let us cool down in the lobby. As for the room, it was beautiful and clean, fully stocked with towels and toiletries as expected. Everything worked, WiFi was strong, and the beds/pillows were very comfortable. We look forward to staying there again! Highly recommend this facility for the proximity to everything the Upper West Side has to offer!

My experience at the Lucerne was excellent. The room was comfortable and housekeeping was first-rate. The location was just right for this trip with subways and the crosstown bus very close. The staff was friendly and went out of their way to accommodate my requests. I stayed at the Lucerne during a heat wave with temperatures in the 90's and high humidity but the air-conditioning functioned just fine to keep the room cool enough.

The only reason it’s 4/5 is because I’m in a wheelch And it was annoying to have to get help everytime I wanted to leave or enter the hotel. Other than that it was fantastic…………………………………………………………………..
