“Genuine inspired Indian hospitality has been a hallmark of Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces for more than 100 years.

Kathleen Shea, Vice President of Sales and Marketing - the Americas played a key role in developing the program.  “From thousands of highly skilled candidates in India, we hand-selected three talented Taj Royal Attaches to join The Pierre, A Taj Hotel’s team.  Their expertise coupled with the Taj Royal Attaché program showcases the brand’s celebrated Indian hospitality in a very tangible way. One stay with a Royal Attaché and it’ll be Taj Forever,” she stated.
