If you’ve never been to New York City during the holiday season, it’s time to treat yourself to a stay at The Lucerne Hotel. Every year, the city transforms into a winter wonderland complete with chestnuts roasting on an open fire (on nearly every street corner!), elaborate window displays, the iconic Rockefeller Christmas tree, the legendary Rockettes, and so much more.
When you spend the holidays with The Lucerne Hotel in Manhattan, you can enjoy the Christmas Eve wine hour in our lobby and easy access to a number of nearby festivities on the Upper West Side. See some of our favorites below.
