U.S. News Review
With its prime location on West 56th Street between Sixth and Seventh avenues, Le Parker Meridien serves as a vibrant and convenient place for sightseers looking to explore Central Park, the MoMa and Fifth Avenue. Start your day with a delectable bite at Norma's (which Zagat has previously rated as one of the city's best breakfast joints) before wandering through Manhattan's city streets. When you're ready to unwind, you'll find luxurious, simplistically decorated accommodations filled with plush beds and sleek TVs. While most recent visitors praise this hotel for its elegant atmosphere and top-tier service, others say it's the enviable location, within minutes of some of the city's best shops and museums that made their stay truly memorable. Another bonus of bedding down here: Thanks to its Starwood ties, guests participating in the company-wide rewards program may receive extras, such as complimentary stays, for choosing to bed down here.
