“Oasis is peace 1/2 block from Times Square”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

The Pearl is a beautiful well appointed room with all new amenities and it appears the facility itself has very new finishings.

Being here the weekend before Cristmas is certainly a challenge with people everywhere but The Pearl is very soundproof and walking in the sstaff are friendly and attentive.

Happy hour between4 and 5 in their second floor has basic munchies and wine and a variety of non-alcoholic beverages.

Overall if y want to be in the heart of the tourist areas and Broadway show this is a very nice boutique hotel that gets you away from the huge chain hotels and provides personlized service

Certainly a keeper next trip round.

What a beautiful boutique hotel that is situated a stones throw away from Times Square. The room was very peaceful, spacious and had stunning interior. But what sold if for me was the staff and customer service, they all went out of their way to ensure we had a wonderful holiday which was our first trip to NYC. We stayed here last year over thanksgiving and will be staying here next year

Amazing hotel, amazing location, amazing staff, say no more!! I have stayed in hotels in New York before but they do not compare to The Pearl.

Can not wait to visit New York again, and we will only ever be staying in The Pearl when we do.

Thank you to all the staff that made our trip to New York so memorable.

My daughter were going to the city to see a taping of a talk show. We stayed a night at the Pearl and loved it. It's a great location near Times Square, Rockefeller Center and the rest of the tourist sights. The front desk staff were great and upgraded our room to two double beds from one queen. The complimentary breakfast has plenty of options. Traveling with my daughter and myself we felt very safe at the Pearl and the surrounding area. I highly recommend the Pearl and plan to stay next time we go to the city.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Pearl and had a superb experience. Couldn't ask for a better location. We stayed five nights in December - our room was on the 7th floor, overlooking 49th street. The staff was very friendly, went out of the way to be as helpful as possible with whatever question or need we had. Complimentary breakfast was complete with fresh fruit, bagels and pastries, etc. - perfect. Rooms were wonderfully appointed - natural materials; travertine, glass tile, soapstone counters, etc. - tv in bathroom! Our first choice for return trip.

Researched New York hotels thoroughly before deciding on The Pearl. Great location in 49th Street, right round the corner from Broadway, subway stations, Broadway theatres, Hop-on Hop-off bus stops, restaurants etc and the vibrancy of New York City. The rooms are spacious (3 of us) and the fittings and fixtures are modern. Plenty of hot water for showering, good heating system with double glazing which helps to keep out the expected traffic noise. Some other comments have said the lighting is poor but we found it adequate and if you really want, makeup mirrors are available on request. Free wifi and a coffee maker in the room also.
Complimentary breakfast is more than adequate with a choice of juices, cereals/oats/granola, toast/bagels/assorted pastries and tea and coffee.
With the staff very welcoming and friendly, we loved the Pearl and would recommend it to anyone staying in New York.

Room Tip: Whilst this hotel does not have views of the New York skyline, you are more than compensated by bein...

I brought my family here for a week in early December 2013; I usually stay in the quieter Upper West, but since none of my family had been to the USA before, I decided to try for a place 'closer to the action' near Times Square. The staff at this hotel are all very professional and welcoming, yet I felt largely underwhelmed about the general value on offer. This is why I will probably not choose to stay in the Times Square area again - the extra noise and hustle is not worth the extra accommodation costs.
Other pluses:
1. Upon our arrival at around mid-day we visited the complimentary breakfast area, but were very disappointed about the little that was on offer. For the duration of our stay hereafter, we chose to have our breakfasts at nearby restaurants in the area. However on our last morning we tried the hotel breakfast out once more (but earlier this time), and were very pleasantly surprised about the real variety and selection on offer. It would definitely have sufficed had we tried it again, but we had clearly missed this trick!
2. The restaurant on site (E&E Grill House) served probably the best burger that our family has ever had!
3. Complimentary internet access.

Room Tip: Try for rooms as high as possible to get away from the noise (especially early morning!).
