Love is in the air on the Upper West Side and all around New York City. Whether you’re planning a special Valentine’s Day surprise or a weekend getaway later in the month, February is a great time to join us at The Lucerne Hotel and discover some of the most romantic things to do in NYC.

The world-famous Manhattan landmarks that surround our warm and welcoming hotel take on an extra whimsical touch during the winter. Bundle up with your loved one and wander over to Central Park—an iconic setting for cinematic romances like When Harry Met Sally—located just a couple blocks from The Lucerne. You can stroll over to Wollman Rink and lace up for couples ice-skating, or get cozy at the perennially popular Tavern on the Green and enjoy an intimate lunch.

In the evening, the bright lights of the Big Apple set the scene for an amorous night on the town. Get tickets to a performance at the Metropolitan Opera—this month’s productions include I Puritani, Werther, and La Traviata. Or venture a bit further south and check out the current shows on Broadway, from Cirque du Soleil’s Paramour to Kinky Boots to The Phantom of the Opera. Finally, finish your uniquely New York City date with a nightcap one of our favorite neighborhood spots (we recommend a cocktail at Smoke Jazz & Supper Club).

Regardless of how you choose to spend your visit, our luxury hotel on the Upper West Side is the perfect starting point for romantic outings. Delight your special someone with our sophisticated accommodations, thoughtful service, and premium on-site amenities, including 24-hour room service and in-room spa treatments.

Book your stay today at The Lucerne Hotel and prepare for the perfect uptown experience this February.
