My wife and I recently celebrated a special anniversary weekend at The Pierre. The accommodations are superb and the location is spectacular, but it is the level of service and people that truly makes this a special place. Thank you for your commitment to "wow" customer service.

The Pierre is a NYC gem and Taj gave her a much needed upgrade. The rooms are classic with great views everywhere. The staff, all of them, are fantastic. I was charmed by the lovely people working in the elevators, total professionals. Be sure to get room service, their Indian cuisine is top notch, especially the breakfast.

Very well situated, near 5th Avenue and Central Park, the hotel have nice rooms, clean and spacious, but bathrooms are very small. Staff is polite and helpful. Housekeeping is very efficient. Elevator attendants are very friendly. Sirio restaurant is very good; the food is delicious but service irregular.

This hotel lived up to expectations and from my experience, ticked all the boxes for a hotel in New York - location, restaurant, bar, friendly staff. We had a suite so not sure what the standard rooms are like. We had breakfast in the hotel daily and it was very good standard (both cooked and continental). We ate in the... More

Dear LaOenophile, We are happy to hear that your overall experience with us was excellent. Breakfast in-bed is the best way to start your morning in New York before you take a walk across the street to Central Park or down Fifth Avenue, and Sirio Ristorante is a delicious way to end an evening. Two E Bar/Lounge does not provide... More

Once you enter The Pierre, you will know that this was one of the most glamorous hotels in NYC back then. It's lavish everywhere you look and the service is personal at every turn.

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.
