The Pierre, a New York luxury hotel, opened in 1930 and has since been deemed one of New York's most elegant hotels. It is a recipient of the rare AAA Five Diamonds and many other awards.
The Pierre is now part of the Taj Hotel group that operates, among other distinguished properties, the Taj Mumbai Palace & Tower, the Taj Boston (formerly the Ritz-Carlton Boston), and the Taj Campton Place, San Francisco.
Unlike many stately old hotels, there is nothing faded about The Pierre. It underwent an extensive sprucing-up before its reopening as a Taj Hotel in 2009. It is glossed to a high finish, with an exuberant New York air and one of Manhattan's most glamorous restaurants, Le Caprice, just off the lobby.
The Pierre boasts an ideal Manhattan location at the exact point where midtown, the Upper East Side, and Central Park meet. In other words, the intersection of business, leisure, culture, and shopping.
Bring your best friend and a leash; The Pierre has a very welcoming pet policy. Dogs that weigh under 15 lbs. are allowed at no extra charge and with no restrictions. Cats are not invited to the Pierre pet party.
