“Immaculate and comfortable”
Reviewed 5 April 2011

We stayed at The Pearl the last week of March 2011. It was immaculate and the room was very comfortable. Although there were a few things unfinished this being a new hotel (grout was needed in the marble by the elevators) it in no way diminished our stay.

They had a very good continental breakfast (coffee, juice, cereals, bread stuffs, pancakes, boiled eggs). The location is also excellent with a food store, restaurants, subways all within a short walk.

The doormen are welcoming and ready to help with the door, luggage or a taxi.

We will go back again.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at this hotel. I will categorize key points in this review, which will explain why I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 star rating.

Checkin: Upon arrival we were met outside the main entrance by the doorman. He took our bags and took care of valet parking our car. We were escorted to the front desk where we were warmly greeted and provided with an upgrade (without our asking) at no extra charge.
Our Room: we stayed in a king room with a small refrigerator, coffeemaker, and microwave and was very spacious and quiet, especially considering New York standards. The room was very clean and in a quiet part of the building. The bathroom has a large shower and nice tile work.
Concierge: at front desk, who was very helpful with theatre tix, restaurants, and directions.
Location: in the heart of the theatre district, within convenient walking distance to theaters and times square
** here's why we rated it out 4 out of 5
Breakfast - continental - included in rate: had all food items one would think would be included in continental breakfast except fresh fruits (apples were not ripe)
Wine reception: daily from 4-5 PM - included WINE ONLY. no munchies, no cheese. hmmm.
TV - in room - hard to work and hard to access movie channels.
we felt that the service and cleanliness of hotel outweighed any of the minor problems and will definitely return to this hotel in the future.

Room Tip: request your wishes when making reservations

A great hotel....right in the thick of things at Times Square. Everything is brand new. Located within 10 yards of two large theaters and within 5 minute walk of thirty theaters.

Highly reccomend for the traveller looking for cleanliness and proximity to the excitement.

We were in the pearl hotel in march 2011.
The location was great; the room was big enough for 3 people (and a lot of luggage).
The bathroom was clean and spacious. We had free wi-fi, coffee machine and refrigerator in the room.

The breakfast wasn't very rich but was adequate for a continental breakfast, after the third morning we went outside to eat.
The staff were very nice, except for the concierge lady that talk to us in an impolite way.

We will definitely go back to the pearl hotel.

New York City! Nearly every hotel in this city runs $300 + .and rooms tend to be tiny
the Pearl was the exception
excellent value in a lovely room with great staff and great service
\my only suggestion? ditch the coffee machines.
other than that, 5 star!

thanks so much

I stayed at the Pearl with some friends in March 2011 and I'm very satisfied with everything! The room was spacious, comfortable and super clean. The bathroom was modern and spotless. What you see in the pictures is really what you get! The hotel being located in Times Square, it made it fun to be close to action and yet, quiet enough to have a nice sleep. Plus, it's only a 10-15 minutes walk from beautiful Central Park. The free Wi-Fi was very convenient and the complimentary breakfast was better then what I expected (cereal, oatmeal, fruits, bread, bagel, eggs, pancakes, juice, coffee...) Also, I was more than impress with the service we got from the front desk and the Concierge desk. Everyone there, including the doormen, were very helpful and nice. Without a doubt, I would stay at the Pearl again. :-)

This hotel was amazing. The facilities were beautiful and very clean. The hotel employees were super helpful and very friendly. Our room came with complementary breakfast, and a daily wine hour in the afternoons! The hotel was right next to Times Square and in the middle of Broadway, so we could have access to all the touristy attractions. I will definitely be going back to this hotel the next time I'm in NYC.
