great location!

Pros: pool and location
Cons: sheer curtains and of televisions in living room and not enough tv's to accommodate adults and children
Location: close to Central Park and great restaurants
Hotel staff was very accommodating and kind. My only suggestion would be to put dark curtains in the suites and not sheer panels as my children slept on the pull out couch and were awakened by the morning sun. Also, 2 televisions would've been greatly appreciated.

Nice hotel in the perfect location

Pros: Perfect location and friendly/helpful staff
Cons: The bed and pillows were very uncomfortable
Location: Central Park is right around the corner. Close to Time Square and the shopping district and restaurants.
The Le Parker Meridian was a very nice hotel. It was in the perfect location, close to Central Park and all the stores. A quick subway ride to time square and the shopping district and restaurants. I would stay at this hotel again. The hotel itself is very expensive. Parking was $55 which I thought was on the higher side. The drinks were $20, where you can get the same drink a block away for half the price. The staff was extremely friendly and very helpful.

beautiful hotel in midtown

Pros: Very quiet, comfortable room and amenities. Very convenient for walking to most museums, close to Central Park.
Cons: The food and drinks were unusually expensive. We did not use their bar or restaurant because the prices were ridiculous.
Location: Close to Central Park, Broadway, Carnegie Hall is on the same block. Two blocks from the Modern Art Museum.
Excellent hotel, conveniently located for walking or access to subway.

Loved this hotel!

This is by far the best customer service I have EVER had at a hotel. Everyone down to the cleaning staff was top notch. I could not have been more impressed. Rooms were clean. The pool is awesome, great view of nyc. Also, great water pressure in the shower which I appreciate. All the restaurants inside the hotel are amazing, burger joint, normas and nave. Nave has the BEST hot chocolate I've ever had. They even let us check in super early! I love this place, can't say it enough.

Great hotel for a weekend in NYC.

Pros: location
The hotel was lovely. The staff was friendly and the location is excellent for a weekend in NYC. Rooms were clean. Pool is nice and the views were great. We ate a breakfast at Norma's and it was delicious. This is our second stay at Le Parker Meridian. We've stayed elsewhere in NYC but for a hotel with a pool this is a best option.

Great hotel & location though iffy for families!

Pros: location!
Cons: better for adults only than families
We're repeat guests at this hotel and it's my hotel of choice when staying in the city. Primary reasons are the reasonable cost (it is NYC) and the great location!! My only concerns have been the less-than ideal room conditions for when traveling with 2 small children (not a lot of privacy for adults to watch tv, etc if trying to budget and stay in one room because of how rooms are set up) and the primary restaurant (service is often rather rude and condescending - unfortunate given the great food!). Also love the late night hotspot 'The Burger Joint' off the lobby...fun for trips without kids!
