THE VIBE: Regal, timeless and in a league of its own. The Pierre, A Taj Hotel, is the only spot on Manhattan’s Upper East Side that holds the badges for both AAA Five Diamond and Forbes’ Five-Star rating. Shining in its own light, the 89-year-old property has housed stars like The Rolling Stones, Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, Elizabeth Taylor and Britain’s Prince Phillip. The Pierre personifies opulence and continues to raise the bar in one of New York’s most exclusive neighborhoods.
THE SLEEP: Upon arrival, guests are welcomed by the history-meets-contemporary ambiance of The Pierre. After a four-year, $100 million renovation, this gem is as diverse and full of character as a New York City block. Following a grand re-opening in 2009, The Pierre now offers 140 new rooms, 49 suites, and 74-privately owned apartments with your choice of Central Park or city view. Each room is exquisitely outfitted with Turkish marble-clad bathrooms, and India-made window treatments. Whether your trip is for business or leisure, you can jump into plush, terry cloth robes and slippers, relish in the high ceilings and sink into the cozy beds.
