Situated in Midtown's hustle and bustle, right across the street from the Museum of Modern Art, the Baccarat Hotel and Residences is the perfect blend of modern New York artistry and old Parisian style.
Owned by the renowned crystal company, this 45-story glass tower conveniently sits on 53rd street near some of New York City's finest tourist attractions, like Radio City Music Hall, which is only a 5-minute walk away from Central Park on 59th Street, six blocks from the hotel. There's also Times Square, Rockefeller Center, and Carnegie Hall, just a 10-minute stroll from the hotel.
Guests and tourists can also visit Fifth Avenue's luxury fashion houses for a bit of shopping or take a 12-minute bus ride to the famous Grand Central Station to see this staple New York site. There are eateries and Michelin-starred restaurants like Le Bernardin and The Modern within the hotel area, too.
The eminent French design duo, Gilles & Boissier, gave elegance and bliss another level of meaning in this hotel. The lavish modern design of the hotel's public spaces, a nod to traditional Parisian decor style, screams for attention throughout the expanse of this luxury residence.
This elegance starts from the hotel's exterior encased in a glass facade with fancy crystal work. It almost looks like a glittering glass box, preparing guests and passersby alike for the equally opulent view inside.
The unique touches inside comprise 15,000 pieces of crystal chandeliers, lush drapery and fabrics, herringbone wood floors, orb-shaped red rose bouquets that add a little color to the dominantly platinum and champagne tones of the hotel.
Entering the hotel, there's a split-level area with entrances to the hotel, the restaurants, and the residences. Past the gleaming light installation of Baccarat Harcourt glassware in the minimal lobby space, the doorman leads guests up to one level to the reception area and from there to the individual residences.
Like the exterior and the first half of the interior, the 114 sleek rooms and suites are eloquently designed and decorated. The rooms have plush king-size beds with wooden posters, white-shaded walls, parquet flooring, floor-to-ceiling windows, and tablet devices with various control settings from lighting and temperature to ordering room service and housekeeping.
Crystal sconces hang on the rooms' walls, and the rooms' width is scattered with contemporary furniture. Red lacquer minibars are well stocked with non-alcoholic beverages, champagne, and treats from Laduree, a French patisserie.
There are also large flat-screen TVs within smoked mirrors, so there's always entertainment for guests. The bathrooms are just as opulent, with a flawless white marble interior, a soaking bathtub, rainfall showers, Baccarat tumblers, and comfy Italian robes.
A luxury box of bath products and an assortment of toiletries from Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris are ever-present to give guests a wonderful queen-style bath experience.
The suites are further furnished with more spacious living rooms, dining rooms, dressing areas, and even a butler’s pantry. Guests staying in the Baccarat Suite and Prestige Suite enjoy flowers upon arrival, packing and unpacking services, and a pile of La Mer beauty products. Luxe is the life in rooms and suites.
Step into the majestic Grand Salon, riddled with faux-fur and leather-covered chairs, plush sofas, and beautiful objet d'art. What you'd notice first the moment you enter this hotel is the velvety crimson red walls of the dining room, which looks entirely mesmerizing and chic. The Grand Salon offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu and evening cocktails.
Afternoon tea is a staple here and is made in partnership with French gourmet tea company Mariage Frères. The Petit Salon also serves a breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu, with canapes after dining. The Bar is a fantastic drinking spot and offers a range of drink options, from bartenders whipping up sake-based cocktails to gin and classic Saint Germain.
Most wines served here are French, the others coming from California and Oregon. Guests can dip on their drinks on the outdoor terrace with an open fireplace for maximum comfort.
Renowned French art connoisseur Frederic Chambre created an art haven in the hotel. He gathered extraordinary pieces around Paris to curate artwork for Baccarat Hotel and Residences New York.
These special art pieces are displayed in glass cases throughout the property. The private artworks span collections from past 18th century pieces to today's photographers, painters, and other art creators.
Frederic Chambre also called upon ten brilliant artists to create original crystal works, taking inspiration from legendary Harcourt glass. These carefully crafted pieces are displayed in the lobby, creating a golden hollow beaming at every hour.
It looks even more beautiful at night, inciting a warm, calm, and still very much luxurious feeling among guests.
Beauty and fitness are among the most revered, if not the most revered, services at the hotel. The center for beauty junkies here is the Spa de La Mer. The Spa de La Mer is the first spa in the world by the La Mer brand. It has four treatment rooms and offers a wide range of overall body care treatments, from La Mer, the most popular La Mer Miracle Broth Facial.
There's also a fitness center open 24/7 at this fine hotel, well equipped with technology machines. It even has a separate room for yoga and Pilates, so guests have a wide range of fitness regimens to choose from. There are bottles of water and towels provided for guests in both the fitness room and yoga room.
The final luxury amenity is the beautiful heated indoor pool. This 55-foot pool has marble tiles of blue and black as flooring, and if that isn’t incentive enough, plush white daybeds line the sides of the pool with scented towels handy. This is for guests to lounge lazily at the pool and enjoy the calmness of it all.
