Tired Hotel

Great location. Very tired hotel. Needs lots of sprucing up. I guess you pay with shabby quality when the rates are good.

A Room with a View!

My wife and I stayed at the Park Lane for 3 weeks. Luckily we were on the 44th floor and had the best view one could ever ask for. Housekeeping was fantastic and in general staff were faultless. Previously named Helmsley Park Lane, it appears that the owners have ceased to invest money in the property. The bathrooms are really in need of a facelift. The shower is very poorly designed and is of the old style in the bath. Very difficult for the elderly but useable for us!! Facilities are poor! Nowhere to have a coffee or entertain people apart from Harry's Bar or a restaurant that charges ridiculous prices for breakfast. Luckily there are a number of options nearby (Sarabeth's, Green Cafe and Fika all within 25 meters of the hotel. No coffee/tea making facilities in room. The absence of F&B outlets was not a problem really as we were out most of the time. The Room attendants were delightful as were the Bell staff. To be honest we did not have much dealing with anybody. We went to the bar once and service was a little stuffy there. The room was spacious and lots of cupboard, night table and drawer room. The lights were a little puzzling (again, old school). Would we stay there again? If all was the same and the price was similar - absolutely. The location is magic, close to everything. Shops, restaurants, park, subway - what more could one ask for?

Try Quality Meats in 58th Street(between 5th and 6th avenues). Booking recommended. Fantastic steaks in a buzzing environment.

We loved The Helmsley Park Lane :-)

We had a great time at Helmsley Park Lane hotel. There was a mixup in our reservation (our booking-agent) and our all time favorite receptionist Antonio was more than helpful in getting it sorted out. The service overall was fantastic. There was a little problem with the keycards and the door to the room and they where sometimes a little slow with the coffee-run, when we had breakfast. But that is tiny issues and it didn't have any influence on the quality of our vacation. We loved the room, loved the view, loved the way we where treated, loved the location, loved the service and loved the staff. We SOOOO much want to go back :-)

5th avenue is just around the corner, so to speak. But get a weekpass for the subway. It was so easy to get around.

Great location

Once would have been a fancy hotel now is a bit old in decor. Toilet bowl stains visible and spider web hanging down from ceiling when checked into room. Otherwise staff service was quite good. Central Park just across the road and convenient to subway

Pretty Average

Did not get the room view we purchased. We were a group of 3 persons but the bathroom amenities were for 2 persons and for the first half of the week had to keep asking for an extra set. However, this was rectified the last 3 days. Hard to find a reasonably priced restaurant near by. Other than that, it was a pleasant stay. Nothing special.

Annual trip to New York City

We've always had a junior suite facing Central Park which was the case this time too. However the rate had jumped 50% over the previous year and there was no renovation of the rooms which could have justified the exorbatent price increase.

Fabulous, just don't expect to eat well

The Helmsley Park Lane is a great hotel. Nice rooms, fabulous locations, but the dinner room, which should be the crown jewel of the hotel is terrible. Breakfast is extremely limited with none of the niceties you would normally expect. Go elsewhere. The dinner menu is also very poor. Sao stay there, just eat elsewhere.

I'm not sure how I came to select

I'm not sure how I came to select this hotel - but what a find! Location, views, great room and service and breakfast included. The staff were so helpful and friendly and we loved being opposite the park and great access to 5th Ave etc. We'd stay there again in a heartbeat. Thanks HotelClub !
