Combining the best of the Big Apple with splendid Parisian style, Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York is an opulent addition in Midtown. It sits directly across the street from the Museum of Modern Art and Manhattan’s Museum Mile, where you’ll find the Met, Guggenheim and many more.
The hotel features 114 sensationally appointed rooms, each with custom-made Mascioni jacquard bedding and a $60 million penthouse at its peak,. Paris-based interior design firm Gilles & Boissier led the creation of the hotel’s interiors, focusing strongly on mood lighting, herringbone wood flooring, tons of crystal, and sumptuous fabrics.
The influence of the French capital continues into the cuisine, with respected two Michelin-starred chef Gabriel Kreuther serving as the hotel’s culinary director. For an extra special experience, opt to dine at La Cour, the Chef’s Table. The barrel-vaulted hotel bar takes its visual cue from an eclectic mix of 30s New York, French hotel ballrooms and, bizarrely, the royal stables of Versailles.
