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 member of staff with whom we dealt was courteous and efficient, and seemed genuinely pleased to see us.
The location is unbeatable for those wishing to visit Carnegie Hall, the Met Museum, the Frick, and the amazing shops of Madison Avenue. The walk across the south end of Central Park is an easy one for those going to Lincoln Centre.
In addition to the terrific location the room was wonderful, with very comfortable and clean bedding, and a bathroom with enough shelves and lighting for shaving and makeup, and a small walk in closet with a good safe. Our bathroom had separate shower and bath, both with nice shower heads on hoses (and a fixed rain shower head on the main shower, too. Bedroom slippers and robes were provided, and the beds turned down each evening. The TV has many channels, including foreign stations from India, China, etc. The only one that this newshound missed was the BBC World Service. It should have been there!
The hotel has a European air, and I personally found the rooms charming and nicely decorated. The restaurant was expensive for breakfast, but not out of league with some of the major urban chains. As a tea lover, I really appreciated loose tea made as strong as I like it. Feeling pampered, we would like to stay there again!
