This is one fine old but venerable, classy, luxurious hotel. Our accommodations were perfect in every way. No complaints only kudos and cheers. The staff to guest ratio is one of the highest anywhere and it shows. The rooms are immaculate, luxurious, and equipped with modern electronics, yet retaining the old world charm for which The Pierre is known. The Upper East Side location across from Central Park is perfectly suited for visits all over the city. Next door is Barneys, a few blocks away are the best retail stores in Manhattan on Madison and Lexington Avenues. We loved our 5 day stay and we'll be back.
