Upon the strong recommendation of a friend, and after considering a wide variety of options we decided to stay at the Park Lane Hotel. What a GREAT choice!
From the moment we checked in we were treated like royalty by Celeny. We arrived a bit early, and there weren't many available clean rooms. She patiently searched the computer, phoned housekeepers, and found us a large room (by NY standards) with an incredible view of Central Park! Later that evening we were thoroughly surprised when a beautiful selection of fruits, homemade cookies, and a bottle of wine arrived to commemorate our anniversary.
The hotel is conveniently close to the subway, great shopping on 5th Avenue, and walking distance to amazing restaurants. When I go to NY I believe you have hundreds of dining choices outside your hotel doors - it's best to go explore and explore. As a result, we didn't dine in the restaurant or check out the legendary Harry's Bar...next time!
The hotel has recently remodeled it's fitness center with new state of the art equipment. The water was freezing cold and the towels were a nice touch. Perhaps a few newspapers or magazines would have been a nice addition.
All in all, I would highly recommend the Park Lane to guests looking for a safe, clean, centrally located hotel, that is as close to Central Park as you can get without actually being in the Park.
