On ne peut pas parler d'un hotel avec vue sur Central Park quand seules les chambre des derniers étages et la piscine ont vue sur le parc. Sinon tout était très bien.Comment of T. Guillaume , France the 2014-08-19
"Wouldn't stay here again"
Stayed here 4 nights. For a hotel that bills itself as upscale, you'd at least expect the a/c to work --- it didn't. Even in motels that go for $75/night, the a/c works! Complaints to the front desk fell on deaf ears as to a fix and were not a surprise (many other guests I talked to had the same experience in their rooms). The front desk never said that anything would be done to fix the problem --- and nothing was. In addition, the room, itself, was nothing special at all. The elevators are ridiculously slow. While the location is good, there are many hotels in the same area with equally good locations, Next time, I'll be looking into one of those. After reading the reviews, the negative ones definitely are more reflective of my stay. I'm not sure I stayed at the same hotel as those who provided a glowing review..
"Le Parker....A Delight"
Nestled between 56 and 57th streets this hotel gives you easy access to Central Park, upscale restaurants as well as fine moderatly priced and international cusine. Close enough to Broadway and all transportation Le Parker's inner lobby and intimate bar are beautiful. Service was quick and good. I expect I will return.
"Fantastic as usual"
This is one of my favorite hotels in the city, and our most recent trip was great as usual. Rooms are spacious for NYC standards, with plush bedding and all the amenities you would need. Staff was exceptional, and ready to get a cab or make a restaurant suggestion. I think my favorite part of the hotel is its Nave Bar, which is a gorgeous setting and a cozy spot to grab a drink. Location cannot be beat as you are a quick walk to the park, 5th Avenue, or Times Square for a show. Also, the metro stop to World Trade center is at 53rd and 7th and got us there and back in no time. Love this hotel and we will definitely be back again.
"more motel 6 than anything"
we got an upgrade to a park view room...the a/c didn't work, the room was tiny and stinking, and the free continental breakfast did consist of a free croissant and ONE drink... this all for little over 500 USD... that is really even for NY standards way over the top
"This is not a luxury hotel"
The rooms here are very tired, making one suspect about the general cleanliness. The hotel rooms themselves (unlike the lobby) have not been updated for at least 15 years, and the amenities in the room are... non-existent. Toiletries are "basic." Maybe I'm spoiled (whatever), as I do stay in many fine hotels around the world, but my Parker Meridien experience, nonetheless, is one of the worst hotel experiences I've had in quite some time. Basically, this is a 3-star hotel with a 5-star lobby. The much-hyped restaurants are effectively impossible to get into -- even as a hotel guest. So effectively, even if you are staying here as a hotel-guest, you cannot get a breakfast in the hotel unless (as helpfully suggested by the hostess this morning) you book "months in advance." And The Burger Joint' The line to get in there extends well into the lobby, which does not add positively to the ambience. And the next time you ever eat a hamburger worth standing over an hour in line for... you're a different person to me, pit it thta way. A poor hotel -- never again.
