“Very Nice Boutique Hotel off of Broadway”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

This is a very comfortable boutique hotel which is close to times square. Great location. The rooms are beautifully appointed, with a small walk in closet with safe to store your valuables, which was great for storage, comfortable beds and pillows, and a desk and lovely bathroom. It was also very warm considering that the outside temperature was 14 degrees and snowing most of our stay in NYC. Despite being so close to times square, the rooms were wonderfully quiet. The staff managed to accomadate all our needs. The recptionists, cleaners, doormen, kitchen staff and concierge were all fantastic, helpful and friendly at all times. The continental breakfast was complimentary, and served in a cozy dining room and lounge area. Snacks, water and warm drinks were available all day. Absolutely brilliant hotel that we would highly recommend. Thank you!

We stayed at the pearl from 14th to 18th December. We are a family of five (3 teenage boys)so booked a queen suite which was on the 3rd floor. The hotel has a lovely, calm atmosphere which is great to come back to after busy days sight seeing. This was our first visit to New York and we loved every minute, despite the snow and cold!
We had the breakfast most mornings and were very satisfied with the choice available bearing in mind the hotel has no kitchen facilities. Another nice touch was the second floor seating area which had snacks and drinks 24/7.
Cheese and wine in the afternoon was also great.

The only complaint we have is from our 17 year old who had the sofa bed. He said it wasn't very comfortable. Our beds, on the other hand were fabulous. Other people have complained about street noise but they must be light sleepers as we slept like babies.
We would definitely recommend this hotel for quality and location.

For my husband's birthday, we chose to stay at this hotel because of it's close proximity to the Eugene O'Neil theater which is right across the street. We arrived early and were happy that our room was ready. We used the valet parking which was quick and easy. The location was perfect, near the theater, restaurants, pubs, shopping, etc. The room was comfortable and clean with all necessities, even a flat screen t.v. in the bathroom which we did not use! The bed was very comfortable and the complimentary continental breakfast was good. We also enjoyed a glass of wine at the daily wine tasting in the common area. It was VERY hot in that room... The heating/ac unit was bit noisy so I turned it off during the night. The only other negative thing was the street noise. It wasn't terrible but I did toss and turn more than I would at home. I was able to block it out with a pillow over my head. The staff was helpful and friendly. We would consider going back to this hotel in the future.

Great service, clean rooms, excellent location. I had to extend my trip for a day due to snow storm and they made it happen in spite of being almost fully booked. Friendly staff. Breakfast could have more options. Highly recommended.

A Pearl, fantastic, great location, excellent service and real value for money and so it goes on! The traveller photo's and the professional photo's all show it as it is. My wife and I were in New York to celebrate my "certain" birthday and the hotel was kind enough to upgrade us and provide a bottle of wine in our room on the actual day. The provision of wine and cheese mid afternoon each day is a welcome gesture particularly when the day's tourism is restricted by snow and sub zero temperatures! Let's not forget that the bed was incredibly comfortable too!

Everything you would expect from a hotel charging twice the amount but without the "stuffiness".

Well done The Pearl Management and staff, you deserve the rating and consistent praise.

Wonderful hotel located a stones throw from Times Square! My family and I (3) stayed for 8 nights early last December.

The room was large, the beds were extremely comfortable and the heating worked fantastically. The bathroom was fitted with modern fixtures, the shower head(s) are amazing, the tub is huge and the Manhattan water is great! The windows are soundproof, so you only ever hear soft murmurs of the city that never sleeps beneath you. Our view was of 49th street, directly across from "The Book of Mormon" and next to "Chicago" Broadway Musicals, but with a hotel so close to the heart of Manhattan and only blocks away from the Rockefeller Centre, who needs to stay in a room admiring the views.

The complimentary breakfast on the 2nd floor serves cereals, yoghurts, fresh pastries, tea, coffee. juices, you name it really, perfect for a breakfast on the go! Housekeeping was fast and efficient, always restocking towels, fresh sheets and mini bar. The staff were always friendly and knowledgable, even finding us places to eat at 3am when the jet lag hadn't worn off. Checkout is at 12, which gives you an extra few hours in the morning to take in any last minute Manhattan activities.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a warm and wonderful stay in NYC and would definitely stay here again!
