The Pierre, A Taj Hotel, New York’s design style mirrors its rich history with an elegant Old World aesthetic that dates back to 1930, when it opened. Head to the rotunda to see stunning trompe l'oeil murals on the ceiling and walls featuring a sky with gods, goddesses, Adam (fun fact: actor Erik Estrada posed for Adam) and Eve by artist Edward Melcarth. The elevators feel antique and are manned by a staff member 24 hours a day — a charming old-fashioned touch.
The small but beautiful lobby boasts white and gold crown molding, crystal chandeliers, black-and-white-checkered marble floors and a dark wood concierge desk.
The New York City hotel’s luxurious rooms come with traditional furnishings, like dark wood desks and side tables, rich taupe carpeting and king-sized beds with gorgeous details like a blue and gold silk throw. Bathrooms have a more modern aesthetic, while still being sophisticated, and are swathed in tan marble with separate glass-enclosed showers and bathtubs.
