Easy and Convenient Access Among NYC Hotels

Use Our Map & Directions to Find the Lucerne Hotel

The Lucerne is located in the heart of Manhattan’s Upper West Side, one of New York City's most desirable and exclusive neighborhoods. Nestled between Central Park, Riverside Park and spectacular views of the Hudson River, we provide guests a snapshot of upscale New York living. The neighborhood, centrally-located among other NYC hotels, and largely inhabited by a community of artists, writers, and actors, creates the perfect backdrop for people-watching.

The Lucerne offers guests convenient access among New York City hotels near Central Park and Lincoln Center. The things to do nearby are endless as we are only minutes from Columbus Circle shopping, The American Museum of Natural History, and many fine restaurants, cafes, and boutiques. For those wishing to visit other New York City attractions, The Lucerne is just a block from the cross-town bus and a short subway ride away from other New York City attractions and activities.
