What to expect during your stay at LUMA

Our goal is to ensure that your post-Covid stay in New York City and at LUMA is as wonderful as possible.

All of LUMA Hotel's usual services will be available.  We will have European style continental breakfast available daily, as well as light bites and cocktails available Tuesday through Saturday in our Lobby Bar.

New York City is now open 100%, with businesses and attractions able to return to usual operating conditions. NYC has rolled out their 'Key to NYC' proof of vaccination program - read all of the details here.

During your stay, vaccinated guests are free to dine in our restaurant/lounge and enjoy drinks at our bar. Unvaccinated guests will be required to wear masks in all public spaces, and can order food and drinks for take out to consume in their rooms.  

Proof of vaccination will also be required to attend our fitness partner, Blink. Unvaccinated guests, or anyone who prefers an outdoor workout, are encouraged to take advantage of Bryant Park's diverse (and free!) fitness programming.
