Overview

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

The Look

A white-gloved bell staff serves Parker New York’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 guest rooms 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 guest rooms 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.

Beyond

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.

Disappointed with the Parker New York
Reviewed 3 hours ago

This hotel is very worn and could use a substantial rehab. The rooms were not very clean and weren’t equipped with modern conveniences for electronic equipment. Our television didn’t work and the bathroom had a leak in the ceiling. We don’t plan to stay at this hotel again.

Will stay here each time I return to NYC

I have nothing negative to say about my stay here. The room was immaculate, the toiletries (Moonshine) I have looked to buy on Amazon, the view from the pool, and the location were all fantastic.
My family and I stayed elsewhere and literally cancelled the other nights and made reservations here. It felt like the original booking.com commercial.

Good location. Rooms are small, average. No coffee maker in rooms, but umbrellas available.
Staff is helpful.
Food options in hotel highly expensive. Though lot of nearby dining options.
Starbucks across the street.

Perfect centralized location for Manhattan

Great location and great service. My only comment is that they need to decentralize AC/Heat and allow control at the room level. However, they accommodated my issue promptly and appropriately. You cannot ask for a better location - within short walking distance of many major locations within the city.

Pleasant staff, spacious and very nice room.
