Great location right by Times Square and all of the eating, drinking, shopping, sight seeing, people watching, nuttiness that entails. The rooms were very nice and modern and the beds great. The front desk wasn't super friendly, but very businesslike and efficient so that's fine. Close to Hell's kitchen too so lots of really good restaurants in walking distance.

Highly recommended!

My wife and I stayed at the Pearl for the long weekend. Rooms were very nice, loved the proximity to central park and the restaurants in the hell's kitchen area were amazing. Staff was very accommodating. The gym was about the size of a hotel room which made workout's very short as there wasn't much variety.

Having just returned from a three night stay with my mum (both our first time in NYC) I would like to say what a lovely stay we had at the Pearl. We were on the 6th floor in a twin Queen room and had plenty of space, very comfortable beds with a view of the theater opposite. Having read a lot about the hotel rooms in the city being on the small side this was not the case at all!
Perfect location close to times square, a great Italian restaurant opposite, simple but more than adequate breakfast and a cosy/friendly feel to the hotel made our trip very enjoyable.
I would also like to say a special thank you for the arrangement of the champagne in our room which made a lovely welcome indeed. I would come back anytime, thank you!

I booked the pearl hotel after reading the reviews on trip advisor. What a wonderful hotel from top to bottom! The furnishings and decor are in perfect condition and not dated as though the place was built the day before. The staff showed the utmost courtesy and professionalism. Above all the accommodations were extremely clean and well maintained. Added touches were a quaint wine and cheese offering and a fresh acceptable continental breakfast. You will not be disapointed with the location either! Short SHORT walk to all of the broadway shows ( we went to see Jersey Boys) and right in the heart of times square. I will definitely be back!

We stayed for two nights and were pleasantly surprised at this quiet oasis just a block off Time Square. It really was remarkable to go from the craziness to calm. The hotel was as advertised (not full-service), clean, pleasant and with good service. We would use this hotel again.

The rooms in this hotel are quiet, clean and the air conditioning is quiet. The bathroom fittings are also of good quality. The TV in the room is small.

The hotel seems to lack any soul – it is a business hotel but not in the business district. The breakfast is a disappointment although very American by which I mean basic help-yourself breakfast items with paper plates and plastic cutlery.

Stayed at The Pearl several times. Checking in is always nice and fast with really nice people greeting you and most employees know you from your previous visits (some by name). The rooms are really nice and spacious. I noticed the last room I stayed in was not as good as the other rooms from previous visits. The breakfast is really nice. Very simple but more than enough. It is very difficult for me to go to NYC and not stay at The Pearl. The location is just amazing.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the theater across the street.
