Lonely Planet review

This unusual 1903 structure breaks away from beaux arts in favor of the baroque, with an ornately carved, terracotta-colored facade. Inside is a stately 200-room hotel, ideal for couples and families with children (Central Park and the American Museum of Natural History are a stone’s throw away). Nine types of guest rooms evoke a contemporary Victorian look. Think: flowered bedspreads, scrolled headboards and plush pillows with fringe. Service is courteous and there is a nice French-Mediterranean restaurant on-site.

Our independent authors have visited Hotel Lucerne and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Upper West Side & Central Park.
