About Le Parker Meridien
With entrances on both 56th Street and on Midtown's "main drag" of 57th Street, Le Parker Meridien is a rare find – a top-tier luxury hotel in the middle of Manhattan that is also whimsical, eclectic and truly unique. From the "secret" burger shack in the lobby to the rooftop swimming pool, Le Parker Meridien’s hidden pleasures will entertain older travelers and delight younger ones.
Located in Midtown between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, few hotels in New York are more centrally located than Le Parker Meridien. The northern section of Midtown Manhattan is favored by tourists, and no wonder: Carnegie Hall and the Russian Tea Room are half a block to the west; Central Park is two blocks north; the Museum of Modern Art is a five-minute walk south, the theater district is a ten-minute walk south; and Fifth Avenue’s world-famous shopping (including iconic shopping emporiums, Tiffany and Co. and Bergdorf Goodman) is only a few steps to the east. Finding a quick bite is never a problem: In addition to Le Parker Meridien’s two restaurants, Sixth Avenue, Seventh Avenue and 57th Street all feature cafes and food stores for travelers on the move, in addition to more upscale restaurants for serious diners.
The hotel itself is a unique blend of modernism and whimsy. Hotel rooms and corridors lined in sleek, dark wood complement attractions and amenities for both children and adults. Hidden behind a curtain in the hotel's austere lobby is an authentic wood-paneled hamburger joint, complete with scarred wood tables and pictures of musicians on the walls. The lobby level also boasts an old-time barber shop and nail salon. The hotel's in-house restaurant is Norma's, which is dedicated to breakfast cuisine. The lower levels of the hotel feature a juice bar, a blowout-only hair salon, a complete fitness center with exercise classes, and a dark, sumptuously decorated spa and lounge area for facials and relaxing after a workout. Topping it all off is a rooftop swimming pool with panoramic views of Manhattan.
The rooms are elegant and modern, with furniture and fittings in honey-toned woods and simple geometric styles. All rooms have high-speed Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and an in-room safe, as well as an ergonomic Aeron chair for the desk. The suites have sleeper sofas and a swiveling TV stand that also serves as a room divider.
Business travelers will appreciate Le Parker Meridien's proximity to Midtown's business district, the hotel’s concierge and room service, and its in-house relaxation amenities such as the fitness center, spa and pool. There are also impressive and well-equipped meeting spaces such as catered penthouse dining and full assembly rooms.
Families with children will find the theatricality of Le Parker Meridien's in-house offerings – the chocolate bar, the restaurants, the swimming pool – deeply appealing. The hotel's suites have irons, sleeper sofas, and kitchens or kitchenettes, which also make traveling with children easier and more economical. Finally, Le Parker Meridien's proximity to kid-oriented Midtown attractions like FAO Schwartz, Radio City Music Hall and the Central Park Zoo is a boon to parents looking to entertain their children while they travel. Families traveling with animals will appreciate Le Parker Meridien's pet-friendly attitude, which includes special room service just for canine pals.
