Rated 5 out of 5 by scottgny3 Best Hotel in the New York City
We've been staying at the Parker Meridien for over 10 years (mostly leisure stays) and every stay has been perfect.
From greetings we get from the hotel staff to the Check-out, everything is always great. It's one of the few hotels with a pool and a spa (i love a good massage) and it has a location cant be beat.
It is an awesome place to stay!

This hotel is wonderful! It has a great location and wonderful amenities and truly excellent staff. When my daughter left her stuffed animal in our hotel room on our departure I resigned myself to never seeing it again. My daughter was crushed! I, on a whim, emailed the hotel to see if there was anything they could do. I promptly received an email from the security team and they worked quickly to not only recover my daughter's prized possession but then had it FedEx'd directly to our home! My daughter was overjoyed! I wanted to commend Chuck from the security team and his staff for his prompt response and attention in this matter! This was truly exemplary! We will definitely be back! Thank you again!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by GreenStow So much potential
I was familiar with the hotel after visiting a few of their restaurants, which are excellent, however was very disappointed by my two night, three day stay. Between my delayed check-in (even though I arrived three and a half hours after my scheduled check-in time and was traveling with three kids), lack of resources like pillows and blankets in our room and lack of attention to detail by the staff. I was surprised and disappointed by our stay.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Joel123 I am really unhappy with this hotel
I checked in and had a really friendly employee at the front desk. I extended a one night stay into two nights and had two reservations. She was able to keep me in the same room, but two separate bills. I asked for points for my Platinum amenity. She said Platinums always want points. I left early both days to get to early breakfast meetings. I did not get the 500 points for either stay and instead got a notation on my SPG account that amenity received in room. I called SPG who called the hotel. The hotel says I was given continental breakfast. I said this was a mistake. They said they could not correct this but could open an investigation. What? I am an SPG Platinum who stayed at SPG hotels over 300 nights and has always received the points. This is crazy that this error cannot be corrected. So the hotel certainly did not make me feel like an honored guest. I will never stay here again and will encourage anyone I know not to do so.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Toya604 I expected more
This hotel did not offer enough amenities. Like a fridge and microwave in the room for there guest. Not everyone likes room service

Rated 5 out of 5 by dailynews Excellent staff
From the moment we arrived the staff was top notch.
Valet to reception to bell desk. I could not have asked for a better experience.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CrownOfThistles Not worth the money, needs a lot of improvement
With so many Starwood options in NYC, I'm hard-pressed to understand why someone would choose this property. Maybe the mid-town location?
I got a lower than usual rate for a 3 night weekend stay and was able to use Suite Reward Nights for an upgrade.
The "suite" was decidedly underwhelming. Lots of "modern" (by late 80's standards) uncomfortable furniture. One television that also doubled as a partial room divider and was also very heavy and unwieldy to swivel. Bed not especially comfortable.
Lots of scuffs, scratches, dings and stains on various furniture items, closets were dirty and I didn't want to store the clothes I brought for my bridal shower and bachelorette party in there.
Bathroom had a good shower, mirror, lighting and counter space.
Room service prices were ridiculously exorbitant even by Manhattan standards. No breakfast was offered or mentioned, even though it's usually standard for Platinum guests.
The check-in desk doesn't have any signage indicating what it is (including no SPG signs). For a moment I thought I'd wandered into an adjacent office building's reception area.
Reception staff maybe was having an off day but they mixed up the name on my reservation, making checkout take much longer and be more complicated than necessary.
Between the confusing layout of the hotel, careless staff, dingy rooms and ridiculous prices for a sub-par property, it's extremely unlikely I'd stay here again.
There are definitely better choices for value and quality in midtown.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TomerB Agree with previous negative reviews
Mostly agree with others who had a bad experience. No spg platinum recognition upon check in. Was given jr suite with bad view and mold smell all over. No coffee maker in the room- unacceptable. Was offered free coffee from room service which never arrived. Overall bad attitude of most staff. Definitely not a 5 or even 4 star
