The Pierre Hotel, New York, USA
This 41-storey historic landmark of Manhattan's Upper East Side offers opulent public areas and luxurious traditionally furnished guest rooms. It maintains the highest standards of service and its restaurant is one of the best in the city. There's a sophisticated lobby bar for live music, cocktails and afternoon tea, and you can enjoy sweeping views of Central Park too. You're minutes away from high class Fifth Avenue shopping, various museums, and several subway stations that will whisk you away to New York's four corners. Make use of the 24-hour fitness and business centres, or head to Rotunda for afternoon snacks, dinner and cocktails in an historic space decked out in striking trompe l'oeil murals. Everyone from Cary Grant to the Rolling Stones has stayed here and it's not surprising.
This is an ideal base for exploring one of New York's smartest corners, the Upper East Side.
The hotel is right by Central Park in Manhattan, with Fifth Avenue's iconic shops close by.
By plane: flights to New York take 6 hours 50 mins from London and Edinburgh, and 7 hours 10 mins from Manchester. The hotel is a 30-minute taxi ride from JFK airport. Parking on-site costs $50 per day. skyscanner.net
Style & Character
An older clientele tend to favour this hotel, though not exclusively. The wood-panelled lifts are like stepping into about 1940, and they often have their own lift attendant, something you never see these days.
