If you ever experienced another Taj hotel you better miss this hotel out. You will be very disappointed because of some poor professionals and the lack of the “Taj spirit”. Unfortunately, I was misled by some of the Internet comments praising this hotel but I must admit: Gentlemen, guys, have you ever been to another Taj hotel????? This hotel doesn’t... More

The Pierre is located across the street from Central Park. Pierre at the front desk was super helpful...the room needs updating but the bed and sheets were perfect! Overall staff was very professional!

This was hands down the most amazing and professionally run hotel I have ever stayed in! The room was large and very well maintained (housekeeping comes twice a day). The bed was very comfortable and they provided all amenities needed (except an ironing board - but then I never asked). Although it was pricey it was worth every single cent,... More

Great location for "the pierre": on central park, on 5th.Excellent rooms, perfect bathroom, great bed, cosy breakfast buffet, excellent service and prices that you have to pay in New York. An international staff that is both professional and friendly. The afternoon tea in the bar is priced as if the sandwiches were made of gold...may be they are but I... More

I stayed at the hotel very recently(my first visit in15 years). Some things haven't changed; the location is great, the staff is friendly. However a couple of small negatives. I think it is time for the rooms to be updated,refurbished. Also, from a service perspective, a little work could be done. In the morning I ordered coffee and a cold... More

The Pierre Hotel epitomizes the concepts of luxury and service. Our room was large and well equipped. We had what I think is the largest shower I have ever had in a hotel room. Service was outstanding. Location unbeatable. Only possible complaint is a view from the room of a lower roof with rusted AC sheet metal.

If you are looking for location this the hotel for you. However, its an 80 plus years old building with no A/C hallways out of you room, slow elevators for a tall building, and renevation works that start every day at 7AM. The breakfast buffet is small with limited choices. The rooms although looks clean, i have injered myself from... More

I stayed at the Hotel Pierre for a week end in June. We were upgraded and occupied a small suite (3908) with fantastic views on Upper East and Central Park.

The hotel is a landmark property. You get a bit more than you expect. The hotel has style and class. As with any older property there are issues such as the lift service being slow but the views of the park are fantastic. The location is very well placed being close to all the best parts of the city.

We spent a romantic weekend at The Pierre and highly recommend it as a storied New York destination. With its strategic location on Fifth Avenue at Central Park, you can step out the door and turn one way into a world of lavish shopping and a sea of people-watching, or the other way into the quiet elegance of the Upper...
