“Outstanding hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014 via mobile

From the minute you enter the front door of the Pearl Hotel get ready for an outstanding experience! First class hotel with first class staff! Free continental breakfast and an amazing wine and cheese hour. We always looked forward to going back to our hotel after touring the city.

I recently stayed at the Pearl for a short business trip and it is by far the best value of any hotel I have stayed at in mid-town. The staff are really helpful and nice, the room spacious and clean, and the amenities surprising (free wi-fi, breakfast included, really comfortable beds). And the location is great -- if you want to be near Times Square and Broadway. I didn't notice any street noise from my 6th floor room, as some reviewers have noted -- but even if I had it is to be expected in New York. Overall, a really great hotel experience I was not expecting.

We just returned from a 4 night stay at the Pearl Hotel and were very pleased with the accommodations. The hotel was well situated for visits to the theatre and, although we were directly across the street from the Eugene O'Neill theatre where The Book of Mormon is playing we were never awakened by street noise. (This may be because we upgraded to a "Deluxe Queen" room on the 11th floor and were lucky to be on the back side of the hotel)

The staff, from the doormen to the concierge, were all very kind and extremely helpful. The rooms were a good size by NYC standards and were all renovated and well appointed with a comfortable mattress, quality linens, a clean, modern, and well stocked bathroom, a good sized TV in the bedroom and a small TV in the bathroom. A great perk was the continental breakfast served every morning from 7:00 am to 10:00 am and a wine happy hour every evening. We have stayed in numerous hotels in NYC and have never returned to one. We will return to the Pearl Hotel!

Room Tip: The rooms higher up and on the back side of the hotel (facing 50th st) will probably be quieter

Recently visited NYC for a show at Carnegie Hall and decided to try the Pearl on West 49th St.
As most reviewers have noted, this is a first class place to stay near everything one might care to see. The staff from the doormen to the front desk to the attendants at the nightly wine and cheese were most cordial and helpful always asking what they may do to make our stay more pleasant. Not to say there weren't any negatives, the TV in the bathroom was not functioning but there was a notice on the bureau in the bedroom explaining it was being worked on. Flushing the toilet brought a high pitched whine and the key cards need replacing as the magnetic strips have worn so much it often took five or six times to open the door. That said, this is one of the finest hotels in the city. Dorn Bracht bath fixtures, Philosophy soaps and lotions, Keurig coffeemaker, in room fridge, electronic safe as well as bathrobes and an umbrella. Free WiFi and a marvelous continental breakfast including hard boiled eggs, granola, NewYork bagels, cereal, sweet rolls, coffee and juice. While this is certainly not the perfect place for those on a budget, I don't believe one will find these amenities for a better price.

I just returned from the big apple, we spent 4 nights at this great hotel, this was our. 4th visit, as always our room was clean and very comfortable, easy walking distance to all things wonderful.

We made some new discoveries as well as some old and favorite haunts. A must visit is the Eric Kayser boulangerie,fantastic breads and wonder full pastries, things you would expect In Europe, this one was near Columbus circle, although there many more, lunch was very good. The other big surprise was Stella ristorante on the 6th floor in Maceys, this restaurant also has the best gelato Vivoli, the original being in Florence Italy, this is a must. The lunch at Stella's was out of this world, the service A 1.

For another lunch we treated our selfs to Del Posto, across the street from the Chelsea Market, we have been there several times. The food was fabulous and there always surprises on the menu, well worth the $$$. The best of course is the window shopping as well as a little retail therapy.
All in all well worth it.

Room Tip: We have never had issues with the rooms

My partner and I stayed in the Pearl for 5 nights. It was our first time in NYC. We stayed in room 1106 on the 11th floor. The room was nice and spacious and we did sleep well although we did hear street noise even though we were high up.

The hotel kindly left a bottle of champagne in the room as it was my birthday. The hotel staff were very helpful and reception assisted us with all queries we had during our stay.

The location was superb. Left out of the hotel and straight on Broadway - one block away from Times Square. It was centrally located for most attractions. Central park was a ten minute walk away as was fifth Avenue and the Rockafeller Centre. The Empire State Building was a 20 min walk. Ideally located for subway but we walked everywhere.

The free continental breakfast was a great way to start every morning and kept us full until Lunch time. They breakfast consisted of cereal, pastries, bagels, muffins and fruit and yogurt. There was complimentary coffee on offer 24hrs a day on the 2nd floor with little snacks and water available too. The cheese and wine hour was also a nice touch.

We did enjoy our stay very much. The room rate with taxes etc per day was a little expensive but for the location it was worth it.

We came into the city for an Art Opening Night at the Wall Street Building - main lobby. The location for the stay as well as the hotel & staff were superb. Would welcome another stay in the near future.
