Couldn't have asked for a better stay. We were able to check in early due to early arrival. Everyone was extremely helpful and we will be back. The hotel was just steps away from the theater we were visiting to see a performance of Chicago. While we didn't get to use it this time we're glad there's a fitness center... More

If you are looking for a Midtown/Times Square hotel and can get the Pearl for less than $200 a night, there's absolutely no reason not to book it. Attentive doorman, 24/7 snacks in the lobby, complimentary wine & cheese hour every day, free wi-fi. The rooms are big for New York, and the bathrooms are *enormous* for New York. Good... More

We have stayed here twice and have had 2 excellent stays. The rooms are clean and well furnished. The staff are friendly and very helpful. Contrary to other reviewers, I think the breakfast is fine; cereals, breads, yoghurts, and fruit. The hotel is 5 minutes from Time Square but once inside things are quite.

Given that a pearl is a semi-precious stone, perhaps that's an appropriate name for this property. It's certainly nothing to get excited about, but it's worth having around. A number of prior reviews had mentioned warm welcomes and upgrades at reception. There certainly was nothing wrong with the check-in experience, but there wasn't anything out of the ordinary either. Just... More

After initially booking the Waldorf Astoria we decided to change to The Pearl and we are so pleased we did. Complimentary breakfast was a nice touch for NYC and complimentary cheese and wine between 4pm-5pm was really welcoming after a busy day and a very nice touch. Complimentary coffee and snacks available all day on floor 2. Our room was... More

We did a lot of research on non-chain hotels in NYC for our first trip there and The Pearl always seemed to come up with top reviews. We agree! From the minute we arrived, we were treated very well by everyone there. We loved the intimate feel of the hotel and the fact that it was set off of Times... More

Fabulous hotel which I would highly recommend for a stay in NYC. Very close to Times Square yet it's very quiet in the rooms, which are spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. Buffet breakfast was a welcome addition with a good selection of food including fresh fruit and boiled eggs. The wine and snacks hour 4-5pm daily was great if you... More

This is a very good hotel in the midtown area of Manhantan. We stayed here for 5 nights in January. The staff were very attentive to our every needs. The room itself was spacious with a microwave and loccitane products. Breakfast was simple but more than adequate, consisting of bagels, cereals, pastries and hot drinks. There is also a wine...

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
