Iconic luxury hotel overlooking Central Park
Overpriced, according to some recent guests
Since 1930, The Pierre has been sitting pretty along swanky Fifth Avenue across from Central Park. Epitomized by its opulent rotunda, this elegant hotel strives to provide elite luxury befitting of its Upper East Side locale. Recent travelers praised the tastefully decorated rooms and comfortable beds, as well as the gracious hotel staff. Wellness professionals are ready to pamper you with soothing in-room massages, and Perrine, the on-site restaurant, draws guests out of their rooms with delectable dishes. If you can, book a room facing the park. Previous visitors said that the views overlooking the greenery are spectacular. Keep in mind that all of the recently renovated rooms boast sweeping city or park views, along with Turkish marble bathrooms, luxe toiletries and Bose sound systems.

Critic Reviews

Travel + Leisure


From that unparalleled location — at the southeast corner of Central Park — to a reputation for quality and discretion that has attracted and coddled guests of wealth and taste from Britain’s Prince Philip to the Rolling Stones, the Pierre has always been one of New York’s top-tier hotels.



The Pierre, a New York classic, continues to impress after a long, glamorous history. ...Gorgeous hand-painted murals from the hotel’s twentieth-century beginnings are still laced throughout the hotel (even in the fitness center), now sharing space with Indian artwork, some of which hails from the Taj flagship in Mumbai.


An elegant, historic hotel across the street from Central Park, the Pierre offers a taste of grand old New York to those staying in any of its 189 small but freshly renovated guest rooms.

The Georgian-style building houses contemporary Indian artwork and, on the first floor, pieces from the art collection of the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower in Mumbai.
