The Pierre, A Taj Hotel, New York’s prime Manhattan location, historic past and wonderful amenities are just a few things that make it stand out from other hotels.
Located at East 61st Street and Fifth Avenue, the iconic hotel is right across from the gorgeous greenery of New York’s famous Central Park, the ideal place to take a stroll, go on a bike ride or have a picnic. It’s also in close proximity to excellent shopping on Fifth Avenue, which is lined with everything from Bergdorf Goodman to Harry Winston.
The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel boasts an Old World charm that dates back to 1930, when it first opened. In the lobby, you’ll see gorgeous black and white marble floors, white and gold crown molding, majestic chandeliers and a stunning rotunda mural of the sky with gods and goddesses that was created in the 1960s by artist Edward Melcarth. There are also subtle Indian accents, a nod to the hotel being part of India-based Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces group since 2005. Hints of the East can be found in the gulab jamun (a dumpling-like dessert) and Malabar shrimp curry on the room service menu and cocktails like the Pierre-tini (Bombay Gin, housemade garam masala rum, Cointreau, Crème Yvette and a splash of pineapple juice) in Two E Bar.
