Good news/bad news
Good news: If your trip to NY takes you to the Upper West Side, the Lucerne is very convenient to the area. Bad news: the Lucerne needs a bit of an update. The decor is reminscent of your aunt’s stuffy house in the ‘80s - dark fussy wood furniture, uncomfortable Queen Anne side chair and lots of tapestry. Good news: The service, especially the doormen, is impeccably polite. Bad news: Only 1 of the tiny elevators worked during our stay so we took the steep and narrow stairs every time except when we had our luggage. I overhead another guest mention that the elevator didn’t work when she stayed at the hotel a year ago. Good news: Our room was quiet at night. Bad news: It faced an 8-story brick wall and was dark like a basement. No amount of lights on in the room helped brighten it. Good news: It is clean and we were really only in the room to sleep and shower. More good news: The Nice/Matin restaurant attached to the hotel is convenient, especially for breakfast.
