Our stay at the Pierre was exceptional and delightful! We were treated well in every way. From initial greeting to help booking dinner and theatre tickets. House keeping, elevator lift attendants, doormen all greeted us and the concierge team is by far the best I've ever encountered!

Wonderful location -- great shopping and bistros nearby -- and an easy walk to midtown as well. The room was well-appointed and insulated which coupled with a more residential neighborhood made for a quiet, restful evening. I thought the small lobby was a plus, ensuring a more private atmosphere and better security/oversight.

They made me sit in the lobby while my wife returned the car - would not let me check in because she got a special rate therefore only she can check us in - with her id - even though I am paying. Feeling quite unwelcome; won't be back...

Staying at the Pierre was great! The staff was extremely helpful and were very atentative. We were very happy to be upgraded to a better room, it was spacious and very comfortable. I am grateful that the receptionist did this as our room may have been a little on the small side.

Fantastic staff! Excellent location across street from Central Park. It is a distance from the financial district and Statue of Liberty, though. Did I mention the service? Fantastic!! The rooms do have very soft beds and pillows. If that is acceptable, then this hotel is absolutely PERFECT!!
