About this property


Located on the Upper West Side, this elegant hotel occupies a fully restored 1904 building and offers high levels of comfort and vintage charm. On the corner of Amsterdam and 79th, the distinctive façade of The Lucerne Hotel hints at the warm and hospitable interiors that await discovery inside. Boutique in feel, rooms are intimately furnished in a classic style with the additional perks of robes, free Wi-Fi, and umbrellas on loan. The hotel is only two blocks from Central Park and within walking distance of the Museum of Natural History while a subway station is just down the road. This area is noticeably quieter than the tourist-heavy Times Square zone and features lots of fancy little shops and restaurants characteristic of the Upper West Side.

Nice location, room and restaurant
Nice west side hotel
Lucerne is located in up west side, close to Central Park. In weekend, you can see New Yorkers bring their kids to Central Park. Nice touch of local life style. The hotel is very good. Staff helpful. Restaurant food delicious. Easy access to subway.

Classy, European style hotel
Attractiveness, cleanliness, location
Perfect in every way. Rooms are quiet, immaculate, bathrooms are elegant stocked with Aveda products, housekeeping very responsive to request for blanket. I've been staying here every time I visit NYC for over ten years. It is a good value most of the time. Great location near Natural History Museum, across Central Park for the Met (walk or easy bus ride), near Zabar's, subway and Lincoln Center.

Another great stay!
The hotel is beautiful, the staff is excellent - especially Yolanda at the front desk :), the rooms are a nice size for NYC.
We have stayed here before and have never been disappointed. It's a lovely hotel and was decorated beautifully for the holidays. The rooms are clean and roomy and the beds very comfortable.
