Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York features 114 sensationally appointed guest rooms and suites and a new modern French restaurant, Chevalier, overseen by Michelin-starred Executive Chef Shea Gallante. The Bar at Baccarat, just off the opulent Grand Salon, is an epic space featuring barrel-vaulted ceilings, a 60-foot bar and an outdoor terrace overlooking the MoMA. The hotel also features a 50-foot indoor pool, an elite fitness training facility and the first Spa de La Mer in the United States.
Paris-based interior design firm Gilles & Boissier led the creation of the hotel’s interiors, which combine Baccarat’s French classic aesthetics with a fanciful modern sensibility. Each of the hotel’s 114 guest rooms and suites feels like a private pied-a-terre. Room categories start with the generous Classic King and ascend to the Baccarat Presidential Suite, the hotel’s “piece de resistance.” All rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows, sitting areas, and custom jacquard linens by Mascioni. Hidden from the sleeping area by hand-painted French doors, white marble bathrooms boast glass-enclosed showers with oversized shower heads and exclusive amenities created for the hotel by Parisian perfumer Francis Kurkdjian.
A tablet equipped with state-of-the-art technology will control all aspects of the room, including temperature, lighting, and room service. A custom-designed Baccarat red enamel mini bar will offer delights from the French gourmet house Fauchon. On the telephone handset, a button marked “Champagne” will allow guests to order a bottle of their favorite vintage to their rooms accompanied by signature Baccarat fluted glasses. Guests of the luxury suites will have the added feature of complimentary La Mer skincare products and nightly salon services. All guests will have complimentary use of the house car, a vintage Citroen, for transport within 15 blocks of the hotel.
An intimate spa, fitness center and 50-foot indoor pool will open in the month following the hotel’s debut. Baccarat has partnered with the ultra-prestigious skincare brand La Mer to create Spa de La Mer, its first spa in the United States. Available to both hotel guests and residents, the 24-hour gym will feature cutting-edge equipment and a staff of professional personal trainers.
