We stayed at The Pierre from 23-27th May and it was amazing. We had a room with a view over Central Park and the whole experience was fantastic. The staff were lovely, especially the lady who looked after our room who always greeted us by name and was an absolute delight. This was our 6th visit to the big apple... 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

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 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

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.
