The Lucerne..Luxury and Kid-FriendlyFlag review
My family (husband and 10 y.o. son) stayed at the Lucerne during a three day visit to the city. We found the hotel to be luxurious and kid friendly at the same time. We all marveled at the European style hotel rooms which were clean with a dark chccolate brown decor. We found the room to be a little snug but adequate for us. However, the atmosphere of the hotel including its perfect location and top notch staff, were well worth it. The hotel is located on the Upper East side. We spent the day at The Museum of Natural History which is within walking distance of the hotel. The surrounding neighborhoods are a great part of the tour. The upscale area offers interesting architecture and hopes of spotting some stars. One of our favorite features is their restuarant, Nice Matin. What a great find. The European decor almost transports you to the streets of Paris in this sidewalk cafe-style eatery. The menu is fun offering many light, French Meditterrean dishes and is perfect for a full meal or a light snack after a long day of travel. We would highly recommend The Lucerne for an upscale family get-away.
Tips for Families
The Lucerne is within close proximity of many of New York's museums so spending a few extra dollars here may save you in cab fare if staying at another location. Consider a visit over the 3 day Martin Luther King Holiday when the city is less crowded.
