The Pierre Hotel

Pierre Hotel NYC

The Pierre, on Fifth Avenue overlooking Central Park, recently completed a $100 million renovation to create new guestroom and bath interiors and reconfigure first floor public areas to include London’s classic brasserie, Le Caprice and Two E Bar/Lounge. Staff outnumber guests by a ratio of three to one. The Pierre’s history is as rich and deep as that of the Vanderbilts, Morgans, Astors, Chryslers and E.F. Hutton, all famed guests of the original restaurant, and much like these names, The Pierre Hotel is a New York City icon.
