A quiet retreat from Times Square, the Pearl Hotel is not flashy or thrilling but it’s handsome and totally comfortable. Oh, and location, location, location. The Eugene O’Neill Theater (The Book of Mormon!) is right across the street. When you’re not theater-going, stroll up to Central Park or shop til you drop along Fifth Avenue. There’s a gym, an outdoor patio, complimentary breakfast and free headphones at the front desk.
