Hotel Review: Le Meridien New York, Central Park

The Le Meridien New York, Central Park was recently converted from the Viceroy Hotel, and is the newest Marriott property in the city. I was excited to check out the hotel last weekend considering it’s only a Category 5 property and can be redeemed for 35,000 Marriott points per night.

As a Marriott Gold Bonvoy member, thanks to my status from my American Express Platinum Card, I was upgraded from a standard Central Park View guest room to a 1 Bedroom Central Park View Suite during my one night stay last weekend. If you are using points, you can redeem for either a City View or Central Park view, both which are available for the base amount of 35,000 points.

Bottom Line

Overall, I had a great stay at Le Meridien New York, Central Park and would definitely return here on another visit to NY. Another great benefit of this hotel is they currently don’t charge any resort or destination fees, something that almost every hotel in NYC does, so if you’re redeeming points you can’t beat using 35,000 points for a night here.

The staff I encountered at the front desk was friendly and the front desk agents seemed just as excited to be part of Marriott now. I was told the hotel had 40 suites, so it seems like upgrades for elite members are likely here, compared to some other Marriott properties in the city which can be tough.

As I was leaving early in the morning, I didn’t have a chance to check out the breakfast options. Despite some confusion, this hotel does not have an Executive Lounge either.

  1. Hi There,

    I am very concerned with the fact of no good response from Amex Travel or this hotel. I have a room booked here for 5 nights spread out over 2 weeks and was never told of the change form the viceroy to new hotel. Last week i spent over 2 hours on phone trying to get some answers to see if what If same perks applied as when it was the Viceroy, Multiple customers service, 2 supervisors and 1 rep at hotel and not one could satisfy my concern. The reviews on this hotel sine being switched over are horrible and I am just a few weeks away from staying there.
