After the "Florida leg" of our next trip in June/July we will be flying to New York where we will meet up with our friends from LA in order to take the DCL cruise. We will be spending 3 nights in New York, both before and after the cruise ie 6 nights in all. I have left the hotel arrangements for when we are in New York in the very capable hands of our friends who have negotiated a good deal for Le Parker Meridian at 119 West 56th Street via their company. [The vice president of that company always stays there when he is in town, so if it`s good enough for him etc.etc.] There appears to be mixed reviews on Trip Advisor [as there always is !!!], so has anyone here actually stayed at that hotel? Its location seems superb...overlooking Central Park, not far from where the ship docks, near to 5th Ave. etc.etc.
