Expert review of The Pierre

A huge renovation has made this a top luxe spot.

This property on Fifth Avenue was in danger of the fate of some its grand dame counterparts; after years of not being renovated the hotel felt fusty and overpriced. But thanks to an injection of a cool $100 million from India’s Taj property group, it has upped its game significantly and reopened last summer with 140 new rooms and a destination restaurant.

Location: 

A perfect perch alongside Fifth Avenue right next to Central Park and close to shopping magnets like FAO Schwartz, Barney's and Tiffany & Co.

Bedrooms: 

Kitted out with Turkish marble baths, flat screen televisions, Bose iPod docks and gargantuan comfy king size beds, the guest rooms have a great new style but some bemoan the lack of "soul". I think it depends on whether you like formality.

Public areas: 

Quite grand with lots of upholstered sofas and an English drawing room feel.

Eating and drinking: 

One of the hotel's centerpieces is an outpost of London’s Le Caprice restaurant. I haven’t been yet but friends have enjoyed the power lunch scene and dishes like a delicious smoked haddock and poached quail egg tart and prime New York strip steak - although it’s probably best to dine there if you are in town on an expense account.

Leisure facilities: 

A lovely Jiva spa.

Service: 

So far service has been what you would expect from a five star hotel but again some bemoan the lack of soul.
