I am not sure that words can express just how wonderful our stay was at The Pierre Hotel. The service was as luxurious as the room. The hard working staff made sure that our every wish was exceeded and the professionalism was unprecedented. The room had high ceilings, beautiful furniture and gorgeous fabrics. Everything about it was so comfortable, including... More

My wife and I stayed here a few weeks back for a legal conference and honestly can say it was the WORST hotel I've ever stayed in for New York. I had stayed here years ago and remembered liking it, wow has it gone down hill! The ONLY positive is the location, otherwise its simply awful. Our room was on... More

This was our 4th stay at The Pierre and certainly not to be the last. We feel like we are at home (a really nice home) when we stay at The Pierre. Everyone remembers us at every return.

We stayed at The Pierre over Easter to celebrate my 50th birthday, and the hotel exceeded all our expectations. Traditional, classy and elegant. Wonderful location on Central Park, which is tranquil considering the surrounding noise and bustle of Manhattan, and very well placed for shopping too - Tiffanys is just a few hundred yards away! We booked a suite as... More

Having been somewhat disappointed by the Plaza last year, we decided to try the Pierre. It was definitely a good choice and we greatly enjoyed our stay. We started off in style, straight out of our intercontinental flight, with a stroll through Central Park. Lovely! We had a spacious room with a very tasteful décor and a view over...the Plaza!...

I actually stayed at The Pierre in March of 2014. It was a remarkable experience for my daughter and I and we still marvel at how well appointed and beautiful this hotel is.

I like the Pierre. Wonderful location and nice staff. The hotel is quirky as it is an old building but it is very comfortable. The Concierge is very good and the staff in general make an effort. Excellent

We stayed at the pierre for 5 nights in April/May. The location is good, near central park and all the high end shops, but it's quite far from all the food eating places. We had booked a Superior King room and on arrival we were given the option to upgrade to a twin room, this would mean we got a... More

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.
