Overall a very nice hotel and would recommend. The room was amazing, the view over Central Park was great, and the maid staff in particular were brilliant. My only complaint about the hotel was the bellman standing and watching me load my bags into my taxi as I left without coming over to help; I would expect more at any hotel, let alone such a prestigious hotel that does so well in all other areas.

Once one of the best hotels in town, now it’s way overrated and living off its past. Rooms and Lobby are visibly old and dirty with stains on the carpet everywhere. We reserved and paid for a park view room just to find out that the room’s view is of the city and very very partially of the park (although they charge almost 300$ extra for the view), the bathroom was ridiculously small and outdated furniture. I remembered the Pierre for its service but that was probably the worst delusion. We tried to have breakfast one of the mornings we stayed there and it could not be worse. After waiting for 20 minutes to get a table, we were repeatedly rushed to order and leave the table. When we said it was an unacceptable treatment, we were told by the arrogant waitress that she didn’t have time to lose. This was to me something that goes beyond being unacceptable (considering the cost of breakfast for two of more than $100). Hopefully we managed to have a proper breakfast with an amazing service at the Carlyle few blocks from there. Will never return to the Pierre!
