This five-star flagship (set in the first 25 floors of the One57 tower) is awash in discreet luxury and is housed in an ultra-luxe condo skyscraper, where penthouses run north of $90 million. The hotel’s steely black street entrance resembles a bank more than a hotel; inside, a minimal-chic entry with 35-foot ceilings keeps it cool with gray stone, marble and artworks including a Daniel Libeskind stainless steel “Spirit House Chair” fronting a spiral staircase. There is no front desk; rather, there’s a phalanx of iPad-equipped clerks to attend to your every need. For all the sleek style on the lower floors, you step off the elevator into a warm, wood-paneled hallway with a residential vibe. The guestrooms are spacious, starting at 500 square feet, with wood hues complimenting sleek modern furnishings and floor-to-ceiling windows. The large bathrooms are stocked with Le Labo toiletries and come with soaking tubs and rainfall showers. Wrap up the day with a massage at the stunning 13,000-square-foot spa or a swim in the gorgeous 25th-floor lap pool. The on-site restaurant, Back Room, is helmed by chef Sebastien Archambault, veteran of DC mainstay Blue Duck Tavern at the Park Hyatt Washington; standout dishes include a 120-day dry-aged bone-in ribeye for two.
In the Area
About that Carnegie Hall joke; many attribute it to Jack Benny, but the joke didn’t start with him. In fact, the hall, which opened in 1891, doesn’t know who first delivered the famous punch line — but it still draws in visitors daily for memorable performances as it celebrates its 125th season. Head uptown two blocks for the entrance to Central Park, with its 843 acres of grassy knolls, picturesque bridges and gurgling fountains. Or go four blocks south for more than 150,000 photographs, sculptures, drawings and prints at the Museum of Modern Art.
How to Get There
This spot was a wonderful, lovely surprise! It is so close to Central Park and Columbus Circle, and the hotel and guest rooms are beautiful, clean, comfortable, spacious, with everything a guest could need considered. I almost never wanted to leave the hotel! Staff was warm and friendly, and I was well taken care of.
A great property. Our first time staying there. We were there for our daughter’s graduation - we hosted a reception in our suite - the hotel staff was fantastic in catering the event, with great food and beverage. The fitness center and pool are both top notch, and I loved the steam room and frequented it often. The Living Room was a great place to have breakfast - lots of choices and delicious food (try the Japanese breakfast - the roasted salmon is fantastic!). All the staff was professional and helpful.
What a wonderful hotel. Super close to central park. Staff and amenities couldn't possibly be any better.
The swimming pool, hot tub and fitness center are an absolute must when staying at this hotel.
Sadly disappointed by this stay. This was a repeat visit after our first stay had been exceptional. Nobody acknowledged us as repeat guests nor as an AmEx Fine Resorts and Hotels booking... kept being asked if it was our first time staying at the property. 3pm check in was not honored. Waiting until 4pm as “management was inspecting the room.” Found several long dark hairs on the floor, dirty rug with cigarette burns. Bathroom plastic coasters had some kind of crusted crud on them. Waited for a package delivery at check in. After 30 minutes and several calls being told package was on its way up for delivery, I ended up going downstairs and retrieving it myself. Wasted so much time at check in, we weren’t able to get our planned rest and shower in before having to head out for our evening plans.
The Park Hyatt is a beautiful hotel near Central Park South and Columbus Circle. The staff are extremely helpful and courteous. The room was luxurious and the beds were super comfortable. The bathroom amenities were wonderful. The nights were quiet and there was no noise from the street. I would definitely book my next NYC stay at this hotel.
