Beyond expectations

By: Nicole


Reviewed on: 27 Jul 2014

we had expected The Pierre to be a fabulous hotel, but we had not expected it to be an outstanding hotel!! What truly makes this property exceptional is its people. Everyone we encountered was a professional in the true sense of the word, from elevator attendant (yes, they have elevator attendants!!) to restaurant staff, front desk, doormen and concierge. Everyone went beyond expectations to make our stay memorable, with a genuine love of their work. We cannot thank them enough. Nothing is a problem in that hotel. We so want to return and will again book through Virtuoso. The benefits are incredible!

Old, but great location

if you're looking for a hotel with a great location, this is it. It is old, but the rooms are large and the bathrooms have been redone. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. It's not inexpensive, but nothing in NYC is.

I was delighted to have the option to upgrade to a suite for an additional $100/night. I was also delighted that Tiffany took the time to have a bottle of champagne delivered to my room on my wedding day. It was such a treat provided by Miss Layne.

Birthday at the Pierre

Classic property, terrific location, talented team. Our birthday celebration stay in NYC was highlited by selecting this hotel......thanks to the perseverance of our travel advisor Karen of Odyssey Travel. The room was tastefully appointed, appropriately equipped, and quiet (14th floor). Staff and service was always available and anticipatory in nature. You will never experience the New York hustle from the people of the Hotel Pierre. Good vibe end to end. Everyone loved the traditional elevator ambience .....complete with the operator who knew your name and floor by the second day.
