“beautiful hotel in a nice location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

this is a truly beautiful hotel, esp the public space. i love the lobby and its function rooms. so beautiful. the location is great for shopping and central park. also pretty convenient for numerous restaurants on lexington. service was attentive and the room was nice.
breakfast was slightly pricey, i feel.
for each elevator, there was an attendant who pushes the buttons for you and go up and down with you. this was a nice touch but after a few times, i felt uncomfortable having to make small talks.
still altogether i had a great stay. i had a city view room and that was nice. but i am sure the park view would be amazing though.

Room Tip: try to go for the park view rooms

I was lucky enough to be in NY on a visit for St. Patrick's Day, I was also lucky enough to have a very good NY friend who booked afternoon tea in the Pierre that afternoon. As there was three of us, we had plenty to eat. I opted for the Lapsang Souchong tea which arrived with beautifully made sandwiches, scones with three different selection of preserves, a selection of patisserie. The service was excellent, the atmosphere was also very good as there were a lot of Irish/Americans who had attended the parade so all in all great experience, beautiful hotel.

this was a last minute trip. frequently stay at other hotels in the area. i was pleasantly surprised by the very cordial staff and classic traditionalism of this hotel. it is a grand old hotel but totally refurbished and elegant. views of the park were beautiful and i could even see up to the george washington bridge.treat yourself to the taj style room service as the food(indian type) is incredible. there were several galas and weddings there during my stay but this only added to the enjoyment!.

Would stay here every time if I could. One of the most comfortable beds of any hotel and some of the most friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful interior and spacious rooms. Perfect location next to Central Park. Love everything about this hotel!

I have stayed at the Pierre quite a few times over the last twenty years. At times it has been a bit tired and the service has faltered. But my impression this time is that the hotel is now better than ever. Our renovated room was extremely comfortable (amazing new bed) and I really like the attractive and subtle interior decoration. The bathroom was spacious and excellent. Best of all are the staff, who were uniformly excellent. Highest accolades go to the charming team who operate the lifts - they are always so friendly and welcoming to guests. What great ambassadors they are for the Hotel. I would suggest only one change to this venerable hotel - install some quieter air conditioners in the rooms with multi fan speed settings (the air conditioner in our room was like a jet engine).

Well, I have to say I'm torn about this review. The hotel was nice, the location was great, the staff impeccable. So why not 5 stars? I can't say. The hotel could've been ANY hotel, in any city. Yes, it was luxurious, yes, there were some outstanding features (the rotunda), and perhaps it is going for the understated elegance and I'm just not sophisticated enough to fully appreciate it. Maybe it's simply me, not you. The rooms were ok, the bathroom was really the outstanding feature of the room. So, for the money spent, would I stay here again? Maybe, if i got a really good deal on the room.

Excellent room, location, food, service, bar, wifi, business center. Bathroom was tiny but workable.
Location is excelent, right across from central park, walking distrance to several attractions including midtown. Bergdorf Goodman and Bloomingdale's are both close by.
Food was great, including room service, appetizers and drinks in the bar, breakfast in the restaurant and dinner in the ballroom.
The room was nicely decorated and large. Plenty of storage space and comfortable bed. Bathrobes and slippers provided. Bathroom was tiny, but funational and nicely deocrated.
WiFi was adequate and the bsuiness center was great.
