The Pierre offers a comfortable stay in elegant surroundings and highly attentive, courteous staff. The room was well appointed, the bed superb, breakfast excellent. There are many small touches designed to appeal to the well-heeled, discerning customer, yet we found ourselves wondering about value for money. First impressions count of course: you walk in from 5th Avenue and there's no... More

We had a live cockroach in our room. Housekeeping failed to show up when we called, so we resorted to depositing the offending critter (despatched by the heel of my husband's shoe) on the reception desk. The staff was visibly shocked, but we had to wait a further two days before the GM contacted us for an explanation/apology. We were... More

My husband and I recently visited the Pierre hotel to celebrate our anniversary. From the moment we contacted this hotel they took care of everything we needed, everything we wanted, and everything that we didn't even know we wanted. Not only do they go above and beyond, but they exceed all levels of expectation. I cannot say enough about this... More

Perfect location on the corner of Central Park and 5th Avenue. Faultless in everyway. It will exceed your expectations. Our stand out person was the wonderful Abraham on the concierge desk He was charming informed and full of fun. Our only gripe was no wifi ! Hope to visit again when the weather a little cooler!

We had visited New York City for an August weekend to celebrate my in-law's 40th wedding anniversary. We stayed at The Pierre for 2 nights. We had two rooms that were connected by an entrance foyer. My four children loved the welcome tray that the hotel concierge sent up, consisting of chocolates, fruit and other decadent treats. The location directly... More

My daughter and I checked in on July 14th and we were upgraded. We were taken to our room, the door opened and it was unbelievable. A master bedroom, living room, bathroom and kitchen. It was an opulent setting, the furniture, bedding, draperies, bathroom, etc. The staff made my daughters first trip to New York more special by offering many... More

We stayed at The Pierre July 12th and 13th for a short sightseeing visit. Everything about the hotel was first class and wonderful. All the staff were very nice, helpful and accommodating. The hotel itself was classically beautiful, impeccably clean and the location was superb. The room was opulent and the bed was amazing! Our concierge, Jason, was very helpful... More

I travel to NYC often, and I have stayed in several fantastic hotels (Carlisle, Surrey, Four Seasons, Ritz, etc.). However, the Pierre tops them all. The location is great - close enough to everything but still quiet and peaceful. The staff was amazing! Everyone was friendly and helpful, not stiff and stuffy like in many upscale hotels. The concierge went... More
