Imagine an hotel run by accountants and you have Le Parker Meridien. The coldly commercial welcome (a stern warning about re-merchandising) set the tone for the whole stay. Also of note was the abrasive and clueless concierge who failed to be helpful on restaurant booking and only perked up a bit when theatres were mentioned, as 'I will charge you a commission you know'. Having also stayed in the Meriden Bora Bora I conclude that these problems are systemic throughout the chain- they don't try to please you, just squeeze you.

Great location (just south of Central Park), close to subway, good restaurants close by, rooms are modern and clean, entrance way to lobby is a strange (long, blank hallway), high speed internet for free, friendly & helpful staff.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Le Parker Meridien Hotel

Top rating is correct.

from Mirandarose
The top rating given by Frommers is correct. I booked six rooms in June for our group of twelve. I was worried about pleasing everyone, ages 23 through 68. Everyone loved the hotel. Great location, tops in prompt maid service, calming subdued rooms and lighting, and excellent amenities. The rooms even have a door bell. The breakfast at Norma's is outstanding with good hours, the high prices brings huge portions and we all loved the inexpensive hamburger joint. If you care about the view, beware of odd numbered rooms on low numbered floors, the more expensive odd numbered higher floors have excellent Central Park views and go to the pool for the view from the top floor.

The BEST in Midtown!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We have stayed at this hotel a number of times, and won't stay anywhere else in NYC! We have come a few times with out the kids, and a couple with the kids, and each time it just gets better. The rooms are great, and spacious! The huge TV ( a big hit with the kids!), and the in-room movie selection is great. The rooftop pool is one of the few in the city and worth a trip up to. The room service is a little pricey but is truly excellent. And, I can not say enough about NORMA's for breakfast. I swear, it is the best anywhere. Definitely, don't pass it by or you will be missing out on the experience of breakfast like you have never had before. All in all, you can not beat the Meridien. It has all the comforts of home, but in a stylish modern hotel.

very impersonal service

from A TripAdvisor Member
The staff at this hotel must be on commission - from the moment we entered they were trying to sell us upgrades and we heard the same patter about the restaurants from 3 different staff memebers. Decor was quite cold and impersonal, I usually love modern NY hotels but this was uninspired and functional. Great location though!

Parker Meridien. Great!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Two nites at Le Parker Meridien. What a great hotel. Everything was perfect. Weekend rate of $160 for 41st floor overlooking central park. The rooms have all been redone and they're beautiful. If you like style you'll love this hotel. HIghly recommended.

t stay elsewhere

from A TripAdvisor Member
I have stayed at LPM over 20 times in the last decade. It always meets all of my business needs and I always choose this property for that romantic night away from home. The rooftop swimming pool is wonderful; chaise lounges and park views! The rooms are invariably spotless and full of amenities (I even bring my own DVDs). Norma's is home to Manhattan's best breakfast and the new "Burger Joint" is great and for only $5, you can't go wrong. Jack's is one of the coolest lobby bars in midtown and Seppi's feel more like a Soho bistro than a midtown hotel's dining room. They always upgrade me if one is available and the room service, while expensive, is wonderful. Also, they let me lazily checkout at 3pm. This place cannot be beat.

Beware - Money was stolen from our room

from marie_scotland
hotel was stunning - loved every minute of our stay in September. decor excellent. location couldnt be better.

however a sum of money (not particularly huge but bad enough) was stolen from our room (2121) on our last day. we were only out of the room for 3 hours and had left money inside a purse inside a handbad - my fault for not locking it in the safe I suppose.

As mentioned by others, staff were not overly helpful. Security man promised to be in touch after he had written his report and completed his investigations ie checking the log of which keys had been used to access the room. Someone had definitely been in as the room was cleaned!

I have since chased them 3 times for a response without success.

Surprise surprise no contact from the hotel - they obviously dont care!

You have been warned!

It was okay...

from A TripAdvisor Member
The rooms were very spacious by New York standards (especially for the 57th street location), the beds very firm and comfortable, the shower pressure good, everything clean and well appointed. There was indeed, as advertised, a 32" flat screen TV, DVD/CD players, Nintendo, ergonomically designed desk chair, and 3 phones (1 on the desk, 1 in the toilet and 1 cordless one by the bed), and stylish adjustable book lamps by the bed. The staff members we met from receptionist to bell men to housekeeping were uniformly friendly and nice and we had an extremely pleasant check-in and check-out. Because of low occupancy they let us have our rooms early (by 1pm) and let us stay till 2.30pm the next day. BUT still the hotel lacked oomph and for some reason did not feel luxurious or hip nor 5-star although it's clearly set up as one and has a great lobby. We got a good deal off ... but be forewarned that the discount rate only applies to rooms below 9th floor. We upgraded to the 33rd floor by paying $15 more.

good value - not the best

from A TripAdvisor Member
stayed two days right after thanksgiving - park view room. small room/small bath - had to close door to get in shower. gorgeous view of the park (all park view rooms are 26 and up). not so helpful staff - we requested a high floor - at check in we were given floor 33 of 42 and told it was the best available. as we got on the elevator with others who checked in after us we saw them push buttons for 39, 40 etc. maybe it was us? no individual climate control - heat is on for the whole building - had to keep the winow open. poorest housekeeping - old food in the minibar, stains on the desk... best breakfast in town is definitely NOT normas - it is ok but overpriced, pretentious and loud with everyone showing off their cell phones...better bet is carnegie deli around the corner 57/7. good overall room - great value - paid 235. with great view and nice rooftop deck and pool (awesome fitness center in basement) it worked out well. i prefer more room but we enjoyed the view. my wife was happy with the room.

Nice Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed for 1 week over the Thanksgiving holiday. It was very busy, but our service was very good. The front desk people were great at check in. The concierge people were very helpful with where to book for Thanksgiving dinner. Room service was quick and good. We upgraded to a junior suite for 3 people, It was plenty of room for us. The only draw back was we were on the street side and it could be very noisy at times through out the night. We would stay here again but ask for higher up or the other side. I read other reviews about the hard beds, we did not experience that at all. They were very comfortable. Over all a great place, I would recommend them to anyone.

Stay From Hell

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed For a total of 29 days. Found the service to be very poor. There was a used condom in my room upon checking in. One morning 3 men barged into my room at 8am and preceeded to take everything ot of my closet and place my articles on the couch and floor because there was water leaking into the closet. There was never any follow up on the status of the water leak. When I reported that the floor was soaked in various parts of the room the front desk acted as if I was bothering them and made no attempt to resolve the matter. I found that the staff were only pleasant upon checking in and out. There were smaller issues, but this about sums it up.

Top Local Tips for New York City

Getting around Buy a metro card which you can also use on the buses. I love travelling by bus. It is really easy to figure out where you're going and is a great opportunity to see more of the city and identify places you may want to visit. You can get different terms of passes eg 1 day, 5 days etc and it enables you to hop off and on as many buses/metros as you wish.

Walk and Take the Subway Everywhere Stay away from cabs. Not only are they expensive and frequently get held up in traffic, but they are boring. Walk wherever you can, and take the subway everywhere else. The subway is safe, quick, fun, and goes literally everywhere. Coming from a natural-born New Yorker, if you want to be a true New Yorker instead of a tourist on your New York vacation, ride the subway. It's super fun for young children and it is a great way to experience and observe New York life.

Serendipity 3 - don't bother! A waste of time and money!
