Went to visit a friend in New York and decided to try The Pierre. I had heard great things about the Hotel and its Highly Known Service. I usually book Hotels with a European Boutique feel and this time I was open to a new experience. I must say this is one of the best Hotel experiences overall and definitely... More

I have stayed in some of the finest hotels in the world. I must say that NOTHING comes close to my recent visit to The Pierre Hotel in New York City.

I wish there were a way to rate a hotel within its star or price rating--so, there are say a dozen true five star hotels in NY---the Pierre is sort of completely middling in this range--that is to say it is an incredibly nice hotel--and i got my room for a terrific bargain on an internet site---the service was great--a...

The staff was great and all very helpful, rooms are very small but nice and clean, and location is top notch, right on 5th Ave across the street from Central Park. All-in-all a very elegant hotel however a bit worn down and very slow wi-fi.

High tea at the Pierre is an absolute delight! Using a Groupon, my friend and I enjoyed high tea at the Pierre. Service was impeccable, and the food was an interesting variety of scrumptious sandwiches, scones, and desserts. We were so full that we decided to forego dinner! The champagne that came with the food was a lovely touch that... More

It was hard to choose a perfect hotel in New York City. It took us hours to find a "fantastic" hotel. I absolutely love New York City but I feel like The Pierre was a villa in Europe. If you want the full New York experience don't choose this hotel. It is very grand and I did enjoy my stay... 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.
