The Pierre Marries De-Stress Retreat With Service

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

New York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

Check-in, De-Stress, Give Back.

The Pierre, A Taj Hotel on New York’s Central Park, has found a way for guests to give back to the local community through worthy initiatives bundled with a luxury package. Book this season’s “Holiday Well-Being” package, valid through January 31, 2012, and The Pierre will make a donation in your name of $100 to City Harvest, feeding needy families. *The Well-Being package includes:

• In-room 60-minute spa treatment, choose from Taj’s signature Jiva Spa Indian therapies
• Yoga mat and deck and Jiva Swara meditative music CD
• Healthy in-room breakfast inspired by the forthcoming wellness menu
From $965/night.

Or, choose to join Pierre employees for a “Day in the Dirt” (advance notice needed). As a corporate sponsor of the Central Park Conservancy, an organization that raises 85% of the park’s funds, the hotel employees regularly cross Fifth Avenue to volunteer with clean up and landscaping of the famous landmark. For a behind-the-scenes peek at the park, ask the concierge to arrange a guided tour with Sara Cedar Miller, Central Park Conservancy’s park historian. For guests who wish to become even more involved, they can participate in various ways with charities supported by The Pierre:

• Grand Central Neighborhood Social Services Corporation – Provides basic necessities and a range of social services to Manhattan’s homeless population. During the holidays, The Pierre’s employees volunteer their time at the Grand Central Station soup kitchen to feed the homeless.

• New York Cares – This charity mobilizes New Yorkers to volunteer and organizes an annual coat drive from December 1-24. Last year 58,000 low-income men, women and children stayed warm during the bitter winter season. Pierre employees continue to donate old coats each year.

• US Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Foundation – The mission of this program is to collect new, unwrapped toys each year, and distribute those toys as gifts to needy children in the community. Last Christmas, The Pierre donated over 300 toys for children all over the city.
