The best thing about the Pierre is the location. If you are a runner and want to experience the thrill of an early morning run in Central Park, that's the place. As many American hotels build decades ago, the furniture, carpets, tapestry, etc would benefit from a general refresh. But guess this is also the style of the place. The... More

The Pierre is in need - like most of the famous uptown New York hotels - of some investment to upgrade rooms and common areas. The is an "old age home" odour in the hallways and the ceiling heights off the 5th Ave entrance are pathetic. Bathrooms are tiny and only one sink - and I was in Deluxe room.... More

As a professional traveller there are memorable stays at hotels for two reasons: 1) nightmarish or 2) fantastic. The Pierre was memorable because of how fantastic it is, as a property but also as a hotel. The staff is extremly helpful and friendly. The Pierre goes out of its way to make its guests feel at home. The word pamper... More

The Pierre is an amazing hotel. It has a very New York Luxury Vibe. Location is amazing. Steps away from Central park and right in the heart of NYC. My wife and I stayed there for 1 night to celebrate an anniversary. The hotel went way above and beyond to accommodate us and anticipate our needs. Our room category was... More

As a 16 Year old who loves travel, The Pierre is beyond amazing, with the feel of a grand dame hotel, this luxury hotel features understated elegance.

The location was exactly what was needed for the trip. The hotel was clean, but a tad dated. The service was good, except for a luggage issue. The hotel worked with us to find our luggage (which was brought to the wrong room). Overall, a good experience.

They saved us from a nightmare booking through Expedia that did not materialise. The staff were so sympathetic. They even upgraded our children to a suite and provided transport to our previous hotel so that we could collect our bags. Thank you! Our family of 6 are smiling again and we can mow get on and enjoy our holiday.

This hotel is a major disappointment. I would rank it as one of the worst hotels in which I have stayed. It smelled bad! The carpeting in the room and hall was heavily stained (by dogs? or food?) and the bathroom was the size of a very small closet. The woodwork and doors were old and shoddy looking. Sound from...

Loved the Molton Brown soaps. Our housekeeper, Gerda, was wonderful. The Pierre provided a complimentary bottle of excellent Cabernet in our suite and one evening I accidentally dropped and broke a glass splashing the red wine on the wall and carpet.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
