                    Central location with immediate access to shops, subway and buses. Very quiet in the bedroom despite central location.

                    On site breakfast menu was overpriced.

                    Excellent location near Central Park, museums and Times Square.

                    Hotel staff was too much obtrusive to get tips for every little service such as opening hotel doors, providing simple information such as where to take the subway etc. No tip meant bad or no service. We know very well that tipping is a good custom in ny, but this was clearly over the top for an USD-220-per-night-without-breakfast rate.

                    Very helpful staff.

                    Rooms on lower floors on the Amsterdam Ave side are afffected by street noise.

                    Our room was very comfortable and clean with excellent furnishings, however most important for us was the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff. A friendly greeting at the entrance followed by another helpful greeting at the elevator was beyond our expectations. It is a beautiful hotel in a great location!

                    It is a little away from the city, quieter. River + park is on one side and Central park is on the other side. Nice place for walking or jogging. Nice restarants nearby.

                    Inside the hotel, in the hallways there are no windows at end of the hallways to look outside to determine which of the four directions is your room. From our room we could not make out at all. It was the back side of two hallways. Its a design issue. No coffee.

                    The staff was courteous and helpful. My original room was too small and I was able to have it changed the next day to one in which I could turn around in. For me, the location was excellent. I was very familiar with the neighborhood my adult children live in that neighborhood and I felt safe there. and him

                    Hotel Lucerne is a wonderful experience from the minute the door man greets you. I stayed there on a short trip to nyc with a friend from Russia and was delighted with our experience. Debra at the front desk was so helpful, as was everyone in the hotel. Ron at the concierge desk was able to help us book an all day tour and direct us to local attractions. The restaurant adjacent to the hotel-Nice Matin- was excellent and very affordable for meals. Lincoln Center and Broadway theaters are right down the road. The neighborhood is very safe, and we felt completely comfortabke walking at night, too. If you need a taxi, the doorman will hail it for you in a snap. The room was beautiful and spotlessly clean with very comfortable beds, free newspaper delivery and free wifi! I will definitely return to the Lucerne~ It is a gem!

                    Great location. Friendly and helpful staff. Small rooms that were not as clean as they should have been. On the fifth floor the street noise was awakening because the windows are thin and old.

                    Great location to get to everything. Easy to get a taxi. Wonderful staff. Great food within easy walking distance. Stayed in a suite and was very comfortable. When I return to New York on pleasure or business will stay at this hotel again.

                    The location andconcerierge the doormen and bell hops were wonderful as were the clerks at reception

                    Often the restaurant did not fill our order correctly ( 4 times) once I called to ask for towels as none had been left in the room when it was cleaned and the towels were not delivered
