The new 114-room hotel delivers a level of luxury to Manhattan that would be expected from the flagship property of 250-year-old French crystal brand Baccarat. It features the first Spa de La Mer in the US, in-room Champagne-ordering buttons and the ‘house car’, a vintage Citroën that guests have complimentary use of within 15 blocks of the hotel.

Situated across from the Museum of Modern Art and occupying the first 12 floors of a split-level tower above West 53rd Street, the hotel boasts a 305sqm event space that can accommodate up to 40 guests and offers bespoke in-house catering.

Dining options include new modern French restaurant, Chevalier, which is overseen by Michelin-starred executive chef Shea Gallante, as well as a number of lobby salons and a bar.

Bedrooms range from classic king to presidential suite, and all offer floor-to-ceiling windows, sitting areas, white marble bathrooms and a tablet equipped with state-of-the-art technology to control all aspects of the room.

The hotel has been designed with crystals in mind. Outside, the lower levels of the are veiled by a wide corrugated crystal-like curtain, and the theme continues inside the lobby where a wall is covered in more than 2,000 of Baccarat’s iconic Harcourt glasses, laid horizontally, and lit by LED lights to create a 24-hour light show. The crystal theme carries on throughout the venue with custom chandeliers, furniture and 5,000 pieces of Baccarat crystal stemware in the bar.

An indoor pool and fitness training facility are also on site.
