The Pierre is proud to be an EarthCheck Gold Certified hotel. EarthCheck is the world's leading, most rigorous and scientifically accurate program for the tourism industry. Hotels achieve Gold Certification after five years of continuous benchmarking. Since 1987, EarthCheck has helped benchmark environmental, social, energy, legal and community performance, as well as the design aspects of hotel buildings and their operations against peers in their sector, region and climate zone. Specific global benchmarking standards include sustainable development policy, water and energy utilization, waste management, paper usage, chemical usage, and corporate social responsibility initiatives.
Since 2013, The Pierre has been recognized with the prestigious Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Rating, which has been the gold standard in hospitality for nearly 60 years. The distinction is awarded annually to fewer than 60 properties throughout the United States. A team of expert inspectors anonymously evaluate properties against up to 800 rigorous and objective standards. These standards are the most stringent in the industry — Forbes inspectors travel incognito, staying two nights and three days to gather every detail of the visit. The Pierre is the only Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five Diamond property on Manhattan's Upper East Side.
AAA Five Diamond award
The Pierre, A Taj Hotel has received the sought after AAA Five Diamond Award every year since 2009. Candidates for the rating undergo multiple anonymous, in-person property evaluations and a final decision by a panel of experts. Requirements include providing meticulous personalized service, extensive amenities and impeccable standards of excellence. Five Diamond hotels represent just 0.3 percent of the nearly 59,000 AAA Approved establishments.
The Pierre is rated 14 on TripAdvisor out of 466 New York City hotels. In addition, we have received the 2017 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, which recognizes establishments that consistently earn great TripAdvisor reviews from travelers.

Treated like family
We stayed at The Pierre for a week while I was travelling with work. From the moment we arrived to the evening we checked out, the entire experience was flawless. I can honestly say, I've never experienced such a consistently high standard across all areas of service, front desk, concierge, house keeping, bar staff, door men and lift operators. It was a remarkable experience to behold and be a part of. We visited at an unusual time for the hotel and for NYC. The cornoavirus outbreak was starting to grip the city, tourist sites were closing, restaurants shutting early and many hotel guests were cancelling or cutting short their trips. Nevertheless, the entire team bent over backwards to make our stay exceptional. From calling restaurants each evening to check opening times, through to housekeeping providing us with extra hand sanitizer wipes each day, staff really went above and beyond during such an uncertain time. The rooms (we stayed in three over the week due to a combination of building work and a particularly noisy neightbour) were tastefully decorated, spacious and artfully peppered with subtle nods to the hotel's illustrious past. The beds, without exception, were the best and most restorative I've ever slept in. Fluffy oversize towels and bathrobes added a special sense of charm and were more akin to what I'd have expected in a country retreat rather than on the Upper East Side. A particular word of thanks must go to the team at the front desk. Nothing was too much trouble and their knowledge of the hotel, its history and the city are to be commended. Our overriding feeling was a true sense of being welcomed as family. Any hotel worth its salt tries to convey this but few many to achieve it. I've never stayed somewhere where this was delivered so effortlessly and with such ease and authenticity. It's clear that the team love their jobs and really enjoy working with one another. You should be very proud of what they have achieved.

Every employee was remarkable The 24 hour elevator attendants are so kind and funny and remember every guests names after just one introduction. The door men were incredible as were the housekeeping staff who made our stay perfect . What Sets the Pierre apart from the other NYC hotels are the people . Even the operator was so positive and kind.. the room service men / women were great too !!! We always stay at the Carlisle but did not this time bc we lost my mom and it was just too sad without her . So I’m so happy to have found a place as great .. maybe greater ! The bar was so chic too and the expression martinis great !! We even had a man give us an inprimlty tour of the ballrooms .... Whatever happens , you cannot let go of the great people who make this hotel . If you do , than it will just become like a big Hilton or something . The front desk and concierge were terrific of course. But the real stars are the ones that are keeping the Pierre a legend . If you must do some lay offs than you must make sure and help the people who have helped you make the best hotel in the USA just that . The fluff and the location is second to the people that help with a smile on their face . Please do the right thing.
