Arrived early and the hotel had my room ready straight away despite being fully booked. Every request was accommodated straight away with a smile professionalism and nothing was too much to ask. Very good breakfast and a great view on the 39th floor were the highlights. Thanks in particular to Aneesha for looking after us!

Room Tip: Ask for a suite on the 39th floor.

We stayed at The Pierre at the end of August to Celebrate my daugther's 10th Birthday. She will never forget turning 10, she is still talking about what a wonderful time she had. The Friendliness from everyone at The Pierre is amazing. This was only are second stay at The Pierre and everyone remembered us when we arrived. They treated us like family. Will never stay anywhere else when visiting New York!
If you are going to go to New York to celebrate a special occasion in your life please go to The Pierre!!!

Stayed at the Pierre while in town on business a real sanctuary away the maddening mid town turmoil.

Stayed in a premier suite and could not fault it great furnishings and decorated nicely a real homey feel to it which I tend to like especially after being on the road a lot in the last few weeks. The views over the city and park at night made you not want to even leave the room.

The only negative I can mention is that although my room was supposed to be Non-smoking who ever stayed before me did not honor that aspect of their stay still cant blame the hotel for the conduct of others.

All the staff were more than helpful and really no request seemed to be too much from the housekeeping to the concierge to the bellmen. They still have elevators which have an operator working it quaint but a very nice historical touch that I did appreciate.

Have stayed at many hotel in NYC and the Pierre is right up there with the best.

Room Tip: If you really do not like cigarette smoke perhaps ask to see your room first.

To be right behind Barneys on Madison Avenue is already a bonus, the staff of this lovely remodeled NY landmark made our stay a real treat. This is one of two hotels in NY that still have elevator operators..The location of the hotel is away from the madness of heavy traffic, yet so convenient to all the Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue shops. Central Park is right across the street and we had a lovely time just walking into the beautiful park and over to the boating area to take in the Manhattan experience. The rooms are spacious and very well decorated and we did not hear any traffic noises from our room. We had a room with twin beds and compared to other NY luxury hotels, the rate was very reasonable. Will definitely go back again to this gem.

An iconic hotel at an amazing location. The lobby is nothing exciting; a little dead, dim and quiet.
Tried a couple of rooms and finally got upgraded with a higher rate to a room with an amazing view of the central park and the east side.
The in room dining was expensive but very exciting Indian cuisine choices.

Room Tip: Request upgrade to high floor park view

Dear rezzman,

We thank you for staying with us, and allowing us the opportunity to give you the Taj experience. Our centralized location is always a guest favorite, and we are happy that you agree.

Being that we are a historic hotel rather than a new build, each of our rooms enjoys a unique layout. We are glad that you found a room that met your expectations.

Our in room dining menu offers many Indian cuisine choices, and we hope that you had the opportunity to taste them. Executive Chef Ashfer would be thrilled to hear that you did.

We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future and hosting you during your next stay in NYC.

Warm Regards,
The Pierre General Manager

We enjoyed everything about out stay at the Pierre. It's everything you would expect of old world elegance. The beds are sumptuous and plush and a good nights sleep is guaranteed. The staff is extremely helpful, gracious and pleasant. We did not have a view but had a good package for three nights so it was hard to complain. Walk out the door and Central Park beckons. We took a 50 minute handsome cab ride and enjoyed every minute.

My best NYC hotel experience was staying at the Pierre. The staff greets you from check-in right up to the operators of the tended elevators. The history and ambiance of the hotel pervades the enitre experience. Truly a classic hotel in the grand style. I was especially fond of the nightly turn down service which included a fresh supply of ice in the bucket. The welcome platter of fruit in the room was fresh and delicious as if the chef had insured the quality of what was being sent to the rooms. Having left an item behind in the room, I called the hotel when I got home and security quickly arranged to send it to me FedEx.
