Rooms at the Hotel Lucerne are traditional in style and come with all the comforts of home, including a flat-screen TV, granite bathroom with bathtub and an executive desk, plus convenient touches like an in-room safe, extra pillows and blankets and a Keurig coffee maker. Suites feature living rooms with a pullout sofa bed.

The hotel’s Upper West Side location offers a low-key neighborhood feel that serves as a relaxing escape after sightseeing. It’s two blocks from Central Park, one block American Museum of Natural History and 10 blocks from the Lincoln Center. It’s also one block away from the nearest subway station, offering a 10-minute ride into midtown Manhattan.

Guests can indulge at the on-site Nice Matin, a French-Mediterranean restaurant that serves Riviera-inspired dishes like escargot, fava hummus and its famous Five Napkin Burger, as well as wine from JFK’s personal collection. Other hotel amenities include in-house spa treatments and a daily wine reception.
