Historical icon The Pierre hotel, a triumph of Georgian architecture, opened in 1930 to spectacular fanfare. Pioneered by Charles Pierre Casalasco, alongside Wall Street financiers Otto Kahn, E.F. Hutton and Walter P. Chrysler, this luxurious tower catered to New York’s social elite. Casalasco envisioned “the atmosphere of a private club or residence,” characterized by “simplicity and refinement.” 
In 2005, Taj Hotels and Resorts was selected to carry on The Pierre’s legacy. After an impressive renovation and restoration, this luxurious hotel enjoys greater success than ever. International dignitaries, heads of state, world-renowned journalists and literary icons frequent The Pierre when they visit New York City.
Each room and event space has a distinguished point of view. The Rotunda, pictured above, is home to Edward Melcarth’s Neo-Renaissance tromp l’oeil murals. The Wedgwood Room features charming pastels with demure sophistication, and The Cotillion Room’s floor-to-ceiling windows offer stunning panoramas overlooking Central Park. If you’re searching for that perfect setting to host your next event, The Pierre delivers an elegant, unforgettable experience.
The Alfus Group enjoys every opportunity to work with Taj Hotels and Resorts. Most recently, our recruiters placed the Associate Director of Group Sales at The Pierre in July, 2011. We are proud to contribute to the ongoing success of this historical Landmark, and their prestigious parent company.
