a short stay with the family. The hotel was in a great location, across the street from Central Park and within walking distance of the NY buzz. Room with a view and very quiet, Thanks to the Pierre for the upgrade. What makes this 5 Star Hotel different from the rest is the friendly, reactive and efficient conciergery. They make... More

Everything from the location to impeccable service makes the Pierre one of the best stays I have had in NYC. The staff, from the front desk to the elevator attendants treated the guests with utmost, but not overbearing attention.

The Pierre is well located at the Upper East side but within walking distance of a lot of shops and sites. Just a few steps away is The Plaza Food Hall which houses Lady M and Luke's Lobsters and the Todd English Food Hall. Also near is the meeting point for the pedicab tours to Central Park. The rooms are... More

The Pierre, just across from Central Park, is a slice of old world elegance. There's simply nothing quite like this grande dame in the big apple. The suites are more spacious than most NYC apartments, the service is over the top and the location is divine for anyone wanting to stroll the park and shop 5th.

I loved this hotel. The room was big for NYC considering the location and had a lovely bathroom with lots of amenities. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great.

The best thing about the Pierre is the location. If you are a runner and want to experience the thrill of an early morning run in Central Park, that's the place. As many American hotels build decades ago, the furniture, carpets, tapestry, etc would benefit from a general refresh. But guess this is also the style of the place. The... More

The Pierre is in need - like most of the famous uptown New York hotels - of some investment to upgrade rooms and common areas. The is an "old age home" odour in the hallways and the ceiling heights off the 5th Ave entrance are pathetic. Bathrooms are tiny and only one sink - and I was in Deluxe room.... More

As a professional traveller there are memorable stays at hotels for two reasons: 1) nightmarish or 2) fantastic. The Pierre was memorable because of how fantastic it is, as a property but also as a hotel. The staff is extremly helpful and friendly. The Pierre goes out of its way to make its guests feel at home.

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.
