Family-friendly hotel with a secret burger joint, one of the city’s best breakfasts and a rooftop pool just a couple of blocks from Central Park
A white-gloved bell staff serves Le Parker Meridien’s ornate lobby, which makes a grand first impression with shiny marble floors, dual-level white columns and archways, graceful burgundy curtains and mirrored corridors. Midcentury Modern furnishings give the guestrooms and suites a retro style, with walls lined in cherry and cedar, denim pendant lamps and original art.
Bed and Bath
Handsome hallways lined with navy accordion-ridged wallpaper lead to 726 spacious guestrooms and suites. Individual doorbells provide a homey appeal that carries into light-filled rooms equipped with microsuede couches, wooden banquettes, and swanky desks with Aeron chairs, mini metal sculptures, and art books such as Steuben Glass Works. Bedrooms have plush beds with hypoallergenic linens, LED reading lamps and flat-screen TVs set in swivel consoles. Although the bathrooms have shower-tub combos with ordinary curtains, all come stocked with lavish Peter Thomas Roth bath products, terrycloth robes and slippers.
Worth the hype (and the wait) are the hotel’s two restaurants: the tucked away retro diner the Burger Joint (which also offers milkshakes and on-tap beers) and Norma’s, which is known for having one of the best breakfasts in the city. We love the fresh-squeezed orange juice, eggs benedict with artichoke and porcini truffle sauce, and the coma-inducing Rice Krispies–encrusted french toast served with a dollop of dulce de leche. Be sure to reserve weeks in advance for the weekend brunch (or get the menu items 24-7 via room service). The recently renovated basement facilities include a salon, spa, juice bar and gym. Or you can head to the glass-enclosed rooftop pool for laps with a view of Central Park.
