The original title for this film was "The Concierge", but the studio was worried that many people would not know what that meant, so the title was changed several months before release.
The hotel that Doug works as The Concerige is in fact, The Essex Hotel located on 59th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues across the street from Central Park. It is still open to this very day.

The hotel that Doug played by Michael J. Fox wants to open is called The Riverhouse. The scene was filmed around Roosevelt Island which sits on the Hudson River between the island of Manhattan and Queens.
The majority of the filming took place around Midtown Manhattan for the hotel scenes, Barney's Department Store where Gabrielle Anwar's character works, the Central Park scenes, FAO Schwartz, the jazz club and where Doug chats up with Freddy the horse carrarige rider. While other scenes such as Christian's Mansion in the Hamptons, Doug and Andy's apartments in the city and Doug's dream hotel site in Roosevelt Island were shot not too far away.
The supersized Giraffe that Michael J. Fox's character is seen with in the opening moments and inside the limo was bought at the famous FAO Schwartz toy store that was located about a block away from where the film was being shot at the Essex House over on 59th Street.

An unofficial Bollywood remake was made, called Yes Boss (1997), starring Shah Rukh Khan in Michael J. Fox's role.
The second of two movies starring Michael J. Fox in 1993 that had a PG rating. The other was Life With Mikey which had come out earlier in the year. Despite from Mild use of Profanity at some points, there are some strong thematic themes that may have made it a PG-13 such as some of the scenes in the Hamptons where Christian's party takes place and some sexual innuendo between Doug's friend and his fashion model girlfriend in the hotel for example.
"For Love or Money" is also the name of a film starring Kirk Douglas. Micheal J. Fox (who's name in the film is "Doug", short for Douglas) would go on to co-star with Kirk in his next film "Greedy".
One of three films featuring Gabrielle Anwar as a lead or co-star in 1993. The others were remakes of Disney's The Three Musketeers and Body Snatchers, which was the modern update of Invasion of The Body Snatchers which was directed by Abel Ferrera, but the film was delayed by Warner Bros. from it's original October 1993 release date and eventually buried to a January 1994 release with very little marketing or distribution.

The first one was Scent Of A Woman in 1992 starring Oscar Winner Al Pacino and Chris O'Donnell, with whom she would co-star in the Disney remake of The Three Musketeers, which also came out almost at the same time as this film, October 1993.
