"Great accommodations right beside Central Park" Park Lane Hotel Tip by rmdw

Park Lane Hotel, New York City: 5,650 reviews and 6 photos

  Interesting view from the Helmsley Park Lane
by rmdw

I spent a great deal of time researching hotels in NYC for our trip there in August 2003. I ended up selecting the Helmsley Park Lane.

I got a great deal of $130/night from one of the online travel agencies (rooms overlooking Central Park would be over $100/night more!)

Unique Qualities: I definitely chose right. The hotel is in a great location, has well trained staff, and has big, beautiful rooms. Everything about our stay here was great!

Transportation Tip: When you walk out of the front entrance to the hotel on Central Park South, turn right and start walking toward 5th Avenue. Not too far away there is an almost hidden subway entrance on your right. If you don't look carefully, you'll think you've just passed a store but it is indeed an entrance to the subway!

Address: 36 Central Park South
Price Comparison: about average
Phone: 212-371-4000
Price: US$120-180
Theme: Hotel

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
