My wife and I searched high and low for a hotel in Times Square for a surprise 21st birthday present for my son. We wanted the location so that we could spend New Year’s Eve in Time Square (along with a million others)! We picked the Pearl as it looked like a boutique hotel amongst all the high risers and whilst not cheap it was comparable with others. The staff, from bell man to concierge where all very approachable, knowledgeable and friendly. The rooms were of a good size (we had a suite) and very clean. Good choice of complimentary teas and coffees and in great decorative order. Breakfast albeit only continental was always fresh and varied. A wonderful touch on return from celebrating new years was 4 engraved complimentary champagne flutes with a bottle of champagne to celebrate. They also went the extra mile to move my mother to a room on the same floor once they realized we where one family. This involved some room logistics and a small delay whilst they got the new room ready but another great touch. In short when we go back we will look no further than the Pearl for our stay, its location, style and friendly staff ensures that. A couple of tips if you are considering New Years in NYC. 1. Book early. 2. They close off Times Square at about 5pm on New Year’s Eve, so unless you have hotel in Times Square you won't get in. 3. Avoid standing bolt upright and freezing in the queue for up to 7 hours by making a reservation at a restaurant or pub in Times Square as you can spill out just before the ball drops and enjoy the roar. 4. Book all your attractions (ice skating, top of the rock, Ground Zero, museums etc), as it is incredibly busy at that time of year. 5. Wrap up…….. It’s cold!
