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)?
