The Lucerne Hotel Review: Despite the relatively affordable rates, The Lucerne is a favorite among visiting rich and famous. There's one main reason for this: the exemplary service. The property is among the best hotels in New York City for its attentive hospitality, and it warmly greets all of its guests like old friends. This Upper West Side palace offers myriad comforts you won't find at many equally priced hotels. All 194 rooms are equipped with web TV, Nintendo video games and complimentary high-speed Internet access. The fitness center is state-of-the-art. Breakfast is an event, hosted on the rooftop with a million-dollar view. And if that's not enough, the hotel boasts one of the city's best restaurants. Nice Matin is a French-Mediterranean bistro with a flair for the extravagant.
