Prime location with Central Park views
Recent guests thought the rooms were a bit outdated
With its spectacular views overlooking Central Park, Park Lane Hotel - A Central Park Hotel dazzles visitors with its superb location and sophisticated ambiance. But that's not all recent guests are raving about. Most previous visitors cited the sumptuous accommodations, appointed with pillow-top mattresses, work desks, sleek flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi access (which is covered by the property's daily $35.93 facilities fee) as a major draw of bedding down here. Plus, recent travelers highly praise the property's ample amenities, including its fitness center, business center and two sit-down eateries (The Park Room Restaurant and Harry's New York Bar & Grill). Although most past visitors expressed delight with their experience, a few bemoaned the lackluster customer service and outdated room furnishings. Still, previous guests cited the hotel's prime address as a compelling reason to return.

Critic Reviews


It's an excellent base for exploring the shopping along Fifth Avenue – from the famous Tiffany & Co. to high-end flagships like Gucci and Versace.

New York Magazine


The lobby ... echoes with memories of its glorious past. It's easy to imagine a fur-laden Liza Minnelli or Grace Jones rolling in after an all-nighter at Studio 54, or Leona Helmsley strolling the premises belittling the staff and filing fuzzy tax returns.
