The Pierre - A Taj Hotel  

Upper East Side, Manhattan, New York City

The checkered marble and chandeliers in the Pierre's lobby evoke classic New York elegance. But Taj Resorts and Palaces, a growing Indian-owned luxury hotel group, took over the Pierre's 140 guest rooms and 49 suites from the Four Seasons in 2005. They headed up its massive, $100 million, 15-month renovation (the hotel just re-opened in 2009) and added a few distinctly Indian touches -- some furniture and colorful silks in the guest rooms and artwork from Indian artists in the lobby.
