The Pearl Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 27, 2014

My husband and I recently spent 4 nights at this wonderful property with our 2 young children (ages 6 and 8). We booked this hotel after extensive research and the valued comments from Trip Advisor contributors and could not have been any happier with our choice in this extremely busy part of the city.

The boutique size of this property in such an ideal location was absolutely perfect for our family. The hotel is comfortable and cozy, with a friendly staff, nicely sized rooms for NYC and easy walking distance to Times Square. We had a deluxe room with 2 double beds located on the 8th floor facing the Eugene O'Neill Theatre (currently showing the Book of Mormon) but the neither the noise from the theatre nor the city sounds were disruptive in our room. The nicely appointed room featured an oversized closet with shelves, in addition to a number of drawers under the flat screen TV, so no shortage of space for clothing as is often lacking in city hotels. The bathroom was a decent size for our needs, though my only (small) complaint would be about the tiny sized bath products that were sparingly left in the bathroom. We were not restocked one afternoon and additional products were quickly brought to our room, as the staff was always so quickly accommodating of our needs. The housekeeping staff does a wonderful job and the rooms were spotless. The beds were very comfortable, as the linens and towels were high end. The room also had a small fridge and microwave which is always nice when traveling with children. The continental breakfast and the wine reception in the evenings were well stocked and well staffed, as both were quite busy while we were there. The front desk and bell staff were always very helpful with anything we needed and kindly helped guide us through the city. A few minor suggestions for the management would be to have more pillows on the bed (2 is not sufficient in my opinion for a nice hotel, though there was one in the closet), and rather have 4 on each bed which is pretty standard in higher end properties. We requested more pillows the first night and they were also quickly delivered to our room. Also a wine opener in the nicely appointed kitchenette in the room would be a minor but nice addition as well. On additional thing I want to praise the staff for was the kindness in dealing with the unfortunate cancellation of our first night due to a cancelled flight to NYC due to severe weather. It was very professionally dealt with, as obviously those circumstances were beyond our control. Our family very much enjoyed our stay at this lovely property and would highly recommend it to anyone traveling to NYC.

The Pearl was a gem, the entire staff were always eager to assist us in any way. I was really surprised to find this small town hospitality in such a large fast pace city just for that reason I would most certainly book at The Pearl if I ever return to NYC. The rooms are very comfortable for two people. The location is perfect, close to everything or just a short subway ride away.

Lovely modern rooms and fantastic location just off Times Square.
The staff are helpful and friendly and nothing is too much trouble.
It is pricey but this is Manhattan (& we were there a few days before Christmas) and in this case you get what you pay for.
Breakfast is a bit 'canteen like' but given the amount you can eat in nyc that is no major hardship.
Definitely recommended

My wife and I were in NY to see Wicked and a long weekend, we chose The Pearl in part because it was only 2 blocks from the Gershwin, but also its Trip advisor rating. We were not let down! The staff was wonderful from the moment we got out of the cab to moment we left. The room was excellent, we were in room 1403 and it is nicely laid out, with a little seating area by the windows. The room was very quiet, I didn’t hear much road noise at all. You couldn’t ask for a better location close to everything, but you didn’t feel like you were in the middle of the crowd which is what we like. The continental breakfast was great, we only wished we could have made one of the complementary wine tastings, never seem to get back in time. I will stay at the Pearl again and highly recommend it to anyone and everyone.

The hotel and staff should both have a 5 STAR RATING. We could not have asked for a better location or staff,which helped us in whatever we needed. We would certainly book this hotel whenever we visit N.Y.C again.

This hotel is in a hreat location for Theatres and Times square being opposite the Book of Mormons and next door to Chicago. We had a nice stay in the hotel and found the room to be comfortable and warm, as it was very cold outside.

There are very few hotels that are good at everything. The Pirl took us by storm !
The staff was very responsive to our situation, and made sure we got a very good experience.
We will be back soon again.
