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. It accounts for the quality, quantity and recency of reviews submitted by travelers over a 12-month period.

Warm welcome, warm stay: thank you!
Good morning, I would like to express sincere thanks and admiration to the team at The Pierre. This was my second stay and I had stayed in touch via email with Christian Hommerich. He went above and beyond ensuring I'd have a great stay. Others also should be commended. Peggy Zhang gave me the warmest of welcomes, engaging in very pleasant conversation and personally showing me my room. Chandika, the house driver remembered me from my previous journey and was a true joy as always. My one regret is that on both stays, the bar was closed - and I am beyond curious to experience jazz night. All that said, on *both* stays (January'20 and November'19) I ended up at the Perrine and had the serious privilege to engage with Sergio. What a positive person... He had a huge crowd to tend to and served everyone with precision and speed without dropping his smile. I hope to return soon and meet these same folks again. They truly deserve recognition for creating a seamless experience, across anything and everything. Places with people like this make the end of a hard work day a true reward! Very best wishes, Thiago T.

My Stay - Tom F.
Anna and I cannot thank you enough for the fabulous stay we had in New York, especially your hotel. The attention to detail was outstanding and the people who worked there were just wonderful. A special thank you to the chap on reception who checked us in, to all the people in the elevators, the housekeepers, the bar staff and gents on the doors. Particular soft spot for Ibrahim and the lady who celebrated her 61st birthday while we were there and still worked her shift. Great glasses by the way!!! Both made us feel at home when travelling in the lifts from the ground to the 38th floor and back down again.. The champagne and cake on arrival just blew both of us away, as did the view from our room 3807. We have already recommended the hotel to several people and we will, without doubt, be visiting you again. Love to all x
