We stayed over the July 4 weekend. This was the first time at the Pierre and I must say we will only be coming back here. The service, from the front desk to the porter to the front doorman were amazing (made us feel like family and royalty at the same time). I must confess, this single aspect was soo... More

Just returned from the Pierre in New York. Lovely hotel opposite Central Park. We had a park view room and were our on the 38th floor which i found rather daunting and without a fuss they changed our room to the 12th floor where I felt much more grounded! Very spacious room, huge bathroom and attentive staff. Very comfy bed... More

1 Authorizing customers credit card on arrival to take a $200 per day "proviso" up front may be standard procedure for the hotel - BUT - they surely have a duty to TELL the customer they proposed doing that - I WAS NOT TOLD. It has NEVER happened to me before. 2 Barclaycard cancelled the Visa because it had been... More

The location is perfect and the rooms are really big! But I was somehow expecting more of the experience of staying in a hotel that is so luxurious. But I have absolutely nothing bad to say about it- I just prefer my stays in the more modern options in NY.

It's hard to find fault with a hotel located on 5th ave and 61st. Staffing ratio to guests is over the top. There is an elevator attendant for every elevator.Employees are extremely friendly and very gracious. Stayed in a suite that was very spacious - only complaint is that make-up mirror is mounted directly over toilet? Surprised that they charge... More

We weren't aware that the hotel has over 80 permanent residents who own rooms / apartments in the hotel. Well, we stayed here because it was a Taj property. We are actually still staying here while I write this review!! We reached today morning at 10:25am and were told that the restaurant was closed and hence had to go out... More

Had such an excellent experience at The Pierre in June. There are many beautiful hotels in New York (including The Pierre, of course), but I don't think any of them can TOUCH the level of service provided by the staff at The Pierre. The doormen, porters, concierge, elevator operators, housekeeping staff and bartenders were all among the most friendly, professional... More

Very good located, few minutes Walking to Central Park and 5th Ave Madison Park Ave. Very good Service, friendly staff members best pancakes for room Service breakfast. Big but not too big as other famous Hotels in NYC. The only Problem has been the noise of the air conditioning. Did not sleep good at all.

My husband and I stayed at The Pierre for three nights at the end of a month long stay in New York. What a fantastic way to end the trip. Everything about the hotel is exceptional - from front office to the restaurant and guest room. The large double-hung windows provided an amazing view over Central Park and Zoo from... More

We stayed at the Pierre for our night after our wedding, and the staff really made an effort to make our stay romantic and memorable. Everyone congratulated us, we received a room with a spectacular view of Central Park, plus special treats on the house. I couldn't have asked for more, and we loved everything about our stay. Spacious room,... More
