“Classic Luxury with Exceptional Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

We stayed here for one night booked on Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts and the moment from check-in to check-out everything was simply amazing. A perfect location right by Central Park and amazing shopping and restaurants/ museums etc. The young lady at check in was very gracious and they had upgraded us to a beautiful room on the higher floor. The hotel is beautifully appointed, the bed very comfortable, large bathroom with marble soaking tub, separate marble shower stall. The hotel's restaurant "Sirio" is excellent. I have been here once for dinner previously and everything was delicious. The breakfast that we had there on our stay was equally delicious. Sirio also gets a nice after work cocktail crowd, great bar snacks and nice bar menu. Their other lounge is the "Two E Bar/Lounge". Very sexy swanky lounge in the main part of the hotel, perfect for late night cocktails or after dinner drinks etc. The staff is very accommodating ... Even the gentleman operating the elevator, when we had come back after midnight , had asked us if we wanted a wake up call, and we asked him if we could have coffee brought up to our room for the morning also, and he said fine. All in all a beautiful stay, we booked again for a birthday in May!

We spent three nights at The Pierre. We absolutely loved it. The room was well appointed and spacious. Normally we find most hotel beds uncomfortable but this king sized bed was lovely. The bathroom was elegant, modern and clean. We appreciated the Molton Brown products as well the plush, oversized Egyptian cotton towels. Our room was quiet, a rare find in NYC. The service was impeccable. Located in 61st and Fifth the hotel was the perfection location for museums, shopping and Central Park jogging. Everyone on staff at the hotel was professional and courteous. True perfection!

Too many hotels in Midtown are tired offerings, coasting on their location to grab the business travel dollar. The Pierre is a real exception to that (although its location is a little bit off of Midtown, but cabs are aplenty and there's a subway almost at its doorstep). Service is fantastic (you'll never have to press an elevator button) and rooms are well laid-out and superbly serviced. Great choice in a great city!

I spent two nights at The Pierre this week and can say unequivocally this is the most amazing hotel. My vacation was a quick getaway to the city with my mom and niece. The Pierre was the highlight of our trip. We arrived three hours prior to check in just to drop our luggage and the front desk not only gave us a room immediately but upgraded our room to a suite. Every member of the staff that we came into contact with treated us warmly and the service was impeccable. They were kind, efficient, and made my 7 year old niece feel like the princess of the castle. Ms. Kayde was always there to greet us and make us feel welcomed after a long day of sightseeing. The room was well-appointed and beautiful. The location across from Central Park was perfect and close to great shopping. Every time I go to NYC I stay at a different hotel to explore a different neighborhood but after experiencing The Pierre, this is the only hotel I will stay at from now on.

From checkin to checkout, this is the most incredible hotel. We were celebrating our 20th anniversary and the hotel staff went over and beyond what us to be expected. The rooms are beautifully decorated, quiet and spacious. The bed linens are luxurious! The staff is extremely attentive. The location is top notch. Breakfast downstairs was yummy. If you are looking for a hotel to take your breath away, this is it

This was my first visit to New York and the stay at the hotel was excellent. It is within walking distance to all the famous shops along the Fifth Avenue. Interesting to see the lifts to rooms being manned - the remains of the grand style. My room was very comfortable and food was good at the restaurant. The Central Park is opposite the hotel. It was freezing cold during my visit but I managed to have a quick walk round.

We stayed for 5 nights at this superb hotel and were very sad to leave. All the staff were excellent without being at all obtrusive - everything was handled quietly, calmly and efficiently. Great location, just across from Central Park, close to galleries, restaurants, and with easy access to the subway network. Best hotel (of many) we've stayed in, in NYC.
