. . . I want to because it's what I "should" do if I'm a "good" person, but I sort of really want to keep it to myself . . .. My conscience won out. I'm writing this review after my fourth stay at The Lucerne Hotel, in the Upper West Side. First of all, it is a beautiful, old-style boutique hotel in a great location . . . one block from the subway, a few blocks from Central Park, the American Museum of Natural History, etc. The lobby is not large, but it feels luxurious and comfortable at the same time, and I've always had a warm greeting by employees. To elaborate on that . . . the staff (every one of them) have always been professional, courteous, attentive, friendly and helpful. I've stayed in, I believe, three different rooms (207 twice and 1007 once . . . don't remember the other one). These rooms have 2 Queens and are connected to the bathroom by a very small, but adequate adjoining room that has a desk and pull-out twin-size sofa. So, if you are looking for comfortable accommodations for a family of five, but want to stay in one space and not book two separate rooms, this works very well. The rooms have always been clean, with tasteful and updated furnishings and decor. The hotel has an afternoon wine reception and fitness center, in addition to 24-hour room service, and the amenities you would expect in a hotel in Manhattan of its size. Many wonderful dining options surround the hotel, including Coppola's West (great Italian restaurant, I've been to multiple times) which is right across the street. Plus, it doesn't hurt that there is an Insommmia's Cookies also across the street. My kids love that. There are a number of excellent pizza and bagel shops nearby as well. Best pizza I've had is across the street from the hotel as well.

We have stayed at the Lucerne several times and each time we enjoy the hospitality. The location is wonderful because it is easy to find ice cream, cookies, bagels or a drink just across the street. The doorman is so kind and the reservation desk is always polite and ready to assist with my questions. The rooms are always clean and the bed is comfortable for a good night's rest. The upper floors are a jewel for the view of the city. We are walking distance to the subway and Central Park and the neighborhood always feels safe for me to walk in

We stayed for 3 nights. The hotel was being renovated on the outside so our view was just the scaffold. The room was pleasant and kept clean. 79th St. Station is a few minutes walk away, which. Was very convenient. Central Park is also nearby.
