The Pierre re-opens in New York following $100 million re-design

The Pierre, the iconic hotel on New York’s Central Park at Fifth Avenue and 61st Street that is the U.S. flagship for Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces, has re-opened following completion of the final phase of its meticulous $100 million overhaul. With the re-opening comes 11 Grand Suites including the Presidential Suite. In total there are now  189 redesigned residential-style guest rooms, including 49 suites, all featuring the most modern of comforts and a feeling of quiet luxury in new guest room and bath interiors by James Park Associates. The Tata Suite (the Presidential Suite) offers unrivalled views of Central Park from its commanding location on the 39th floor. Rich gold, silver and porcelain tones embrace an inviting living room, two bedrooms and a gracious dining room with service pantry. Its 1,980-square-foot interior also showcases a photographic essay of the history of the House of Tata and hand-crafted artworks by artisans from Paramparik Karigar, an organization dedicated to preserving and promoting India‘s artistic heritage and supported by Taj Hotels. First floor public areas have been reconfigured to accommodate a graciously welcoming reception area; Two E, the hotel’s new destination lounge and bar that serves light plates, afternoon tea and classic cocktails in what was the original reading room now transformed by Champalimaud; a new restaurant, Le Caprice, the first location outside of London for this celebrated UK favourite that will serve long-standing modern European favourites within a specially designed New York menu, opens its dining room designed by Martin Brudnizki next month.
