The Pierre is an outstanding provider of gracious and generous hospitality. The hotel is immaculate, quite lovely and extremely well managed. Every experience at the hotel, from the first greeting by the Doorman to a final goodbye is a positive one. I believe it is no small task for a quality service provider like The Pierre to achieve a consistent... More

My recent stay at the Pierre (1 night, April 14, 2013) was excellent. The staff were helpful and friendly. We stayed in a city view suite which was spacious, beautiful and extremely comfortable. We very much enjoyed taking the private car service to dinner and we had drinks in the bar before and after dinner. The drink menu was inventive... More

My daughter and I enjoyed this fabulous hotel while visiting New York during the US Open. Through American Express, we were able to enjoy first the hotel and then the extra amenities AE allows. Breakfast in the room was delicious and the Happy Hour was more than we imagined. We will stay here again and again!

It is a great location on the park which is very convenient. The room was very nice and well done. However, the hotel is not really in the league of a four seasons in terms of service and attention to detail. The guest areas are a lot more run down than the rooms. The gym is average at best, especially... More

We had the pleasure of spending a weekend in NYC with the Taj Hotel, The Pierre. From the warm greeting at the front desk, to the wonderful concierge staff, the elevator attendants (yes, really, they accompany the elevators!) to the lovely man who gave us street directions and hailed cabs, it was a stellar experience. Even the way the housekeeper... More

We had the absolute pleasure of spending a few special days at The Pierre. It was my wife's first trip to New York and it will unfortunately be hard for me to top the experience largely due to the hotel and its superb staff. Our concierge Francisco did a splendid job of securing last minute spots for coveted tables and... More

In the past few visits to NYC, we have stayed with a cousin, but since there were too many of us to be accommodated this time, the two of us stayed at the Pierre for the first time. From the minute we entered until we left, we were welcomed, looked after well and generally made to feel very comfortable. Every... More

This hotel impressed us from the second we arrived until the second we left. We arrived very early and they were incredibly accommodating, even apologizing for not having our room available at 8 am! They took our luggage, gave us recommendations for breakfast and promised to call us when our room was ready. They did so by 11am and we... More

I stayed at the Pierre for a weekend break - and I really loved it. I can partially understand that some reviewers are a bit critical towards the hotel. BUT if you are - like myself- from Europe the hotel is completely breath of fresh air. I had a pre-organised transportation from the JFK to the hotel where I was... More
