I have stayed at the Pierre quite a few times over the last twenty years. At times it has been a bit tired and the service has faltered. But my impression this time is that the hotel is now better than ever. Our renovated room was extremely comfortable (amazing new bed) and I really like the attractive and subtle interior... More

Well, I have to say I'm torn about this review. The hotel was nice, the location was great, the staff impeccable. So why not 5 stars? I can't say. The hotel could've been ANY hotel, in any city. Yes, it was luxurious, yes, there were some outstanding features (the rotunda), and perhaps it is going for the understated elegance and... More

Excellent room, location, food, service, bar, wifi, business center. Bathroom was tiny but workable. Location is excelent, right across from central park, walking distrance to several attractions including midtown. Bergdorf Goodman and Bloomingdale's are both close by. Food was great, including room service, appetizers and drinks in the bar, breakfast in the restaurant and dinner in the ballroom. The room... More

I booked the Pierre because of a great deal I got online, and it was sooooooo worth it! The beds are comfortable, the rooms are quiet and the staff is outstanding. It's also a perfect location: midtown, right across from central park, close to shopping and great restaurants. By far and away the nicest stay I've had in the city... More

I had stayed at the Pierre once before and really liked it, I tried it again and it was great again. Of Course the location directly on Central Park, while be just 2 blocks north of all the noise makes it a more quite option than the luxury hotels directly on the south end of the park. I visited over... More

Stayed here for 1 week for business in Feb. We previously stayed on our honeymoon and loved it. We were upgraded to a small suite (though no park views this time!) which really helps if you are staying for so many nights. Feels like home. Love it that the staff is more or less the same. Very polite and friendly... More

It's luxury hotel, and you will pay top dollar for a room, but everyone form the bellman to hotel staff is first class. You also are getting a 5 star room with 5 star service.

I stayed at the Pierre in March for a conference. The location near Central Park is nice (and was certainly convenient to stay where the meeting was held), but I just think this hotel is old and tired compared to others in the price range. The renovated bathroom was an improvement over the last time I stayed there and the... 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.
