French glamour pad in Midtown Manhattan with a private art collection, La Mer spa, elegant restaurant and Versailles-inspired bar
In a city with its fair share of over-the-top hotels, the Baccarat brand’s first property manages to up the ante, from the jaw-dropping interactive light display made of 1800 Baccarat Harcourt stemware to the old world elegance of the public spaces⎯the Grand Salon, Petite Salon and The Bar designed by Parisian duo Gilles & Boissier. There is beauty at every turn—think shimmering objet d’arts, pleated Jouffre silk walls, coyote fur chairs, and, of course, sparkling crystal chandeliers.
Bed and Bath
If the main floor is all about glimmer and gloss, the spacious guestrooms are a study in restraint with ivory white walls and fabrics, framed smoked mirrors that hide the TVs, crystal sconces, and red lacquer boxes filled with the minibar’s Baccarat glasses. Bathrooms are all white Carrara marble, with glassed-walled showers, oversized showerheads, and exclusive amenities by Parisian perfumer Francis Kurkdjian.
This is the new playground for the world’s super wealthy—European royalty, CEOs, A-list celebs, and high-flying business travelers. They gather for $25 dollar cocktails at the Versailles-inspired The Bar or for dinner at Chevalier, the sophisticated restaurant run by Chef Shea Gallante, which serves on-point French classics. On the lower level, the 1900 square-foot Spa De La Mer from the NY-based luxury skin care company La Mer is the first of its kind in the US, with 4 treatments rooms and a 55-foot-long pool.
In the Area
With the opening of the Baccarat, a newfound energy has returned to Midtown Manhattan. Across the street from the hotel is the renovated Museum of Modern Art, with 150,000 photographs, sculptures, drawings and prints, not to mention a robust film collection. Nearby, there’s the just-opened The Polo Bar by Ralph Lauren and revamped Rainbow Room, with its gorgeous skyline views. For those in need of a city break, the southern border of Central Park is within easy walking distance from the hotel—take a stroll among the grassy knolls, charming bridges and gurgling fountains.
