No words can describe the service at this place. In summary - I ordered a custom Indian dish not on the menu, went to Broadway show and came back late past midnight - called to deliver food and it was delivered hot and fresh. Amazingly tasty and when I called back to commend the chef - he LEFT 5 mins after my food was delivered. Apparently the chef waited 7 hours PAST HIS SHIFT FOR ME so he can cook and deliver the food on time for me ... I felt horrible but I couldn't thank the Chef enough.. Amazing Taj always amazing !!

Great hotel, the staffs are friendly and attentive. Atmosphere is cozy and lovely. Rooms are clean and comfortable. I suggest getting a room near the top floor so you can get a great view of central park and the city. Overall great experience, it's expensive to stay here but worth it.

The Pierre was absolutely incredible. My Senior Prom was held at The Pierre and the staff were incredible. The food was exquisite and the entire event ran smoothly thanks to the staff of The Pierre. Would definitely recommend the venue to those throwing a party or a wedding reception.

I spend a lot of time in NYC hotels and our time at The Pierre was among the most enjoyable. The staff was always professional but not stuffy and got us whatever we needed. The Pierre is an old-school 5 Star experience and that is a diminishing thing in NYC.

Susan and her staff are friendly and knowledgable about the city and it seems like they are as excited about your daily adventures as you are! They welcome you to sit down and share your day or enjoy some quiet, private tine with your loved ones or friends with a glass of wine by the fire. They find the right balance! The rooms are lovely and 'NY Intimate' and if you think the rooms are too small then you are spending way too much time in your room in a great city in a great boutique hotel! Well done Susan and staff!

If you visit New York city, and you choose to stay at the Pierre, you made two great choices. The city and the hotel. you've actually made the perfect choice when it comes to the hotel. The location is ideal. And so is the service and the rooms. From the moment you walk in, you feel welcome. You're greeted with.

After arriving quite late due to a rerouted flight, the staff checked us in and found a suitable nearby place to eat. The concierge called up to our room to confirm that he arranged to keep the kitchen at the restaurant open. We would have had to run to make the cutoff otherwise. Great little touches like fresh flowers and having concierge know us by name really made the stay special.

My husband and I planned a several day getaway and are very happy that we stayed at the Pierre! The location is excellent and we were able to walk to many of our planned entertainment destinations. The staff was very warm, helpful and accommodating. Our room was an upgraded suite on a high floor over looking the city. The room was comfortable, great amenities and clean. The maid saw my book on the coffee table and put a Pierre bookmark on top! In addition, we had dietary restrictions and they went out of their way to meet our requests. Looking forward to returning one day. Thank you Jacqueline, Doris, Khathy and Carmine! The Schnalls

Nice food for a large social event. A great dance space with surrounding tables. The bathrooms had some stalls that didn't lock which is a minor problem but honestly dissapointing.

Absolutely love the location as it was across the street from Central Park and near all the lovely shops in Upper East Side. Service is top-rated- they all remember our names (a little spooky but sweet!). This hotel and Carlyle are the only two hotels left in NYC that has people manning the elevators - very endearing and old-school! There are also treats for the kids upon check-in: an elaborate spread plus an adorable penguin stuff animal. What a lovely touch.

Went to the Perrine at the Pierre as part of the restaurant week. I'm a vegetarian by choice so I'm usually sceptical about fancy places as I know how meat tastes and it's usually hard to make vegetarian food taste that good. But Perrine was an exception! The first course was the best butternut squash soup I have ever had. I'm a snob with that, I either love it or hate it. This was right on top on that list. I'd recommend to just go there for the soup alone. The breads were fresh and went perfect with he soup. Others tried the tuna tartare and the salad, both I hear were good. The main course was roasted farm veggies. They we're not my fav veggies as they were the ones on the sweeter side of the spectrum - beets, carrots etc. But the texture and consistently was on point. Did not feel full after it. I would say it was solid, not my favorite though as it felt too sweet after the soup. Others had the fish (bass) and lamb chops (medium) - they were excellent apparently. The dessert was the classic French brulee. Perfect. Accompanied by Madeline, that went well. As a plus, the adjoining dining room is absolutely stunning. I could sit there reading a book and having my coffee all day long. Would recommend just to see that! A special mention about the service. Had 2 servers both tried to be funny and not overwhelm with unnecessary suggestions. Did mind our table very well without being noticed or intrusive. All in all I would say totally worth it!

I did not stay at the hotel, but I had dinner there. The inside of the hotel itself, however, is gorgeous. You'll feel like you walked into the Sistine chapel. The service was very good for dinner, and the food was good as well. A bit on the salty side for the appetizer and a tad too sweet for the dessert, otherwise it was great.

It was breathtaking indoors. Felt as if I traveled back in time into the opulent and luxury of the 1920s. Massive halls and beautifully lit lobbies made you feel cozy and as if you were in another city not in the US. The only negative that I can talk to is that the bathrooms had a smell of vintage to say it nicely AKA old smell it wouldn't hurt to do a little bit of remodeling and renovating inside the bathrooms.

I've only been here for events (not an overnight guest), but the staff is too snobby for my taste. Maybe that's part of the authentic French flair...

I’ve stayed at The Pierre Hotel for a week with my family. It has been a wonderful experience in a great hotel. All was extremely nice and cared, starting from the magnificent main lobby, arriving to the spacious (compared to others five stars hotels in Manatthan) and clean room. In addition is remarkable the kindness and politeness of all the hotel staff: concierges, receptionists, doormen, elevator operators (yes, this hotel has also a operator for each elevator), and housekeepers. The breakfast is excellent, and various. The hotel offers also a large number of lovely complimentary services and amenities, such as a very convenient and stylish drop off service in Manhattan, operated by the Hotel Car, a Jaguar limousine. Must be underlined also that the Hotel is children friendly and provides them a large number of amenities and toys, in order to make their stay more enjoyable. It is indubitably a truly luxury and great hotel.

My wife and I originally booked the Plaza hotel for a couple nights and were tranferred to the Pierre due to staffing issues at the Plaza that made them unable to accomidate guests for the weekend . What a great opportunity that turned out to be ! We initially spoke with Ana at the front desk who was wonderful. After learning that we were in town celebrating our wedding anniversary she took it upon herself to upgrade our room to a top floor with a spectacular view of the park and upper east side ! My wife and I had an amazing time and Ana along with all the hotel staff were incredibly friendly , helpful and really know how to treat their guests. They all exceeded our expectations and made our first stay at the Pierre a very memorable experience. My wife and I will definitely stay at the Pierre again and can’t wait for our next opportunity to do so !

One of the best hotels to stay in midtown Manhattan. Right across the street from Central Park and close to historical places in New York City. Variety of museums and shopping districts. Right off of 5th Avenue Posh shops. And other high-end stores.

My reason for going was to attend a social event in one of the event rooms. While the hotel is beautiful the room was hot and there was practically no ac. In the hotel it was cool and comfortable but as soon as you entered the events room it was the opposite. On top of that my girlfriend had placed a card she received at this event on the table as we got up to dance. When we sat back down the plates were cleared and so was her card. Speaking with a other waiter and the manager it became clear another staff member stole it. I would never voluntarily come back to this hotel again.

If you like the finer things in life, you may dig this hotel. It's beautiful and guest service is always amazing. Well... usually amazing.. last night a hotel operators demanded that my daughter and I get off the elevator saying it was too full. I've been on fuller elevators. It was not necessary and she was rude. But she is the only time i have experienced rudeness in a staff member. We come every summer.

Great location (across Central Park) and parking is a breeze. There is a parking lot right across the street. The moment you walk out of your car, you are pleasently greeted by the doormen. We attended a wedding and were amazed by the hospitality. For the place itself, a little dated, but regardless, still a beautiful place.
