The Pierre Hotel (New York City) appears in a famous American romantic comedy film “For love or money” (“Concierge”) (1993) under the name of a luxury Bradbury Hotel. The plot of the film is centred on the main character, who works as a concierge at Bradbury Hotel fulfilling a huge amount of various duties. It is possible to enjoy all the beauty of the hotel because it is presented in different settings and storylines.
The reason why the movie has two official titles is simple: two major aspects of the plot are emphasized by their titles, i.e. the job position and the choice made by the main character. This film deeply shows life in the hospitality industry, which is so diverse, dynamic, interesting and attractive.
