Pros. Great location. There were lost of restaurants within walking distance. The subway is one block away. It is a beautiful building.

There will need to be a room available in the type you booked, and it will need to have been fully serviced by housekeeping. In the event that a room is not available for early check-in, the hotel is happy to keep your bags stored safely, so you can start exploring Manhattan right away. Guests can use the baggage holding area free of charge.

  • Does The Lucerne Hotel have a good restaurant?

    The Nice Matin Restaurant is attached to the hotel, and it's the perfect place to get breakfast, lunch and dinner. It's a four-star restaurant that serves up French Mediterranean cuisine, and has been featured as one of the Upper West Side's best restaurants by New York Magazine. If you don't feel like going out, you can also order most meals from the restaurant to your room. You can find a range of dishes such as tuna tartare and burgers with truffle aioli. However, reservations are recommended.
