The Pierre Hotel, a major NYC landmark, has reopened recently after a $100 million renovation by its Indian owners, Taj Hotels Resorts & Palaces.
Located near Central Park at 5th Avenue and 61 St, the Pierre offers 189 redesigned residential-style guest rooms, including 49 suites.

Since we have more time than we know what to do with, we played around with booking a Grand 1-Bdrm Suite at the Pierre for September 24 for just one night.
Folks, the rack rate shown us was $13,772.30 (no typo here) for one night.
Wonder if that is the Presidential Tata Suite (contains handcrafted artworks by artisans from Paramparik Karigar)?
Or was it the less regal Rajput Suite (bed-frame hand-finished with centuries-old Zardosi embroidery)?
“Tata” Suite? Spitzer may misunderstand it. Where is he now? Where is he/Ashley Alexandra DuprÃ© now? At that price, they better give tatas free.
1. Yes. 😉
We remember reading about a guy running a site called bodacious-tatas that is said to have contained sexually explicit material.
Our Indian Tatas got very upset and sued him at WIPO on trademark grounds.
2. Read somewhere (NYT?) that Spitzer is helping out at his father’s real estate business.
At one time, we thought Spitzer was 2012 or 2016 President. Gone baby, gone.
As for where Ashley Alexandra DuprÃ© is, we’d like to know too. 😉
Sometimes, we think the Jews have a hard time keeping their pri**s in their trousers.
Never heard of this site or the lawsuit. Thanks for enlightening me.
So many lawsuits involving desis and desi companies these days.
One involving even a desi cyber-stalker here.
