Le Parker Meridian – New York is located in Mid-town Manhattan on 56th Street between 6th and 7th Avenue. Its has a somewhat famous ‘secret’ Burger Bar and Norma’s is famous for brunch. It has a mix of business and leisure travelers.
The highlight of his hotel is the roof top pool and sun deck that has views of the city and Central Park. The pool is tiny, go early or late when there is no one there and you can enjoy it alone. The first thing I did after my red eye flight was to go swimming as soon as the pool opened, I was alone for about an hour before there was one other swimmer. The hotel informs me that on the weekends its popular with families that visit The City.
They do have day passes but the price is on the high side, might as well just get a room there.
