We travelled to New York as two thirty-something couples. The best thing about this hotel is it's location. Right on Time Square and Broadway, all the big site-seeing attractions are within walking distance. For those that don't walk, the Subway is just at the end of the street. On arrival the lobby didn't look up to much, but once in... More

Having orginally been stuck between booking another hotel and The Pearl, I finally decided after reading all the positive & glowing reviews to book with The Pearl & I am so glad I did. Conveniently located a stones throw away from Times Square, this hotel also offers a quiet base away from all the hustle. Rooms very clean, comfortable &... More

Stayed at The Pearl for 3 nights in march. Lovely hotel. Complimentary bottle of wine for my birthday. Upgraded room. Very clean hotel. We had a very pleasant stay. Room lovely and quiet and bed very comfortable. Slept like a log. Very close to Times Square. Would recommend.

My daughter and I stayed at The Pearl for 3 nights. This was our first visit to NYC and picked this hotel for the area and amenities. It was a very short walk to the subway station and to Times Square. The room was very nice with a small frig, microwave and Keurig. There is also a continental breakfast in... More

The caveats to this review are that I am not NY savvy, but I've been a somewhat frequent visitor to the big apple over the years. I've stayed uptown, downtown, around town and finally I've stayed in midtown, right near the theatres. In the past I've been either completely disappointed by the "luxury names"; (the Plaza (see my review), Essex),... More

Ok, to begin with, this is NOT a review criticizing the "boutique" aspect of the Pearl. It has all the bells and whistles and polish of what one expects in a boutique...lovely interiors, a great restaurant, a location close to everything in Times Square and nicely placed about a block out of the 24 hour neon strobe of those streets....

First lets talk about what this place is not: If you are looking for a place with a great hotel bar and plenty of buzz like The Hudson, this is not the place for you. Weight room is rather small as well However, The Pearl is a great option for every other reason The rooms are spacious by NYC standards... More

I spent a week in this hotel. It was very nice and the room was very big. Great location for theatres. Great for everything. The only complain I had to sleep with earplugs because of the non stop AC running all night. Ask for a front room and very high floor.

Our room happened to be next to the lift and we felt deflated at first but, thankfully, not for long. Within the room there was a surprise waiting for us: a private corner terrace framed by skyscrapers boasting a view of 49th Street to the East. It was especially spectacular in the afternoon, when the setting sun was seeping through... More

My husband and I have just returned from a 3 night stay in New York where we celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary. This was our second visit to the Big Apple and our first stay at the Pearl hotel. First thing to say, the location is great. Very convenient for the major attractions (Times Square; Broadway; Rockefeller Plaza; Empire State... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
