Baccarat Hotels & Resorts translates the perfect craft and noble heritage of the legendary, 250-year-old French crystal maker into an elegant lifestyle.
Combining this rare legacy with modern elegance and elements of unexpected magic, each of the brand’s hotels and resorts has been conceived as a gracious hôtel particulier, welcoming guests with impeccable service and distinctive amenities.
Baccarat Hotels & Resorts launched in March 2015 with the opening of its flagship New York property. Take a look at the photos below to get a closer look at the newest entry into Manhattan’s luxurious hotel scene.
According to Curbed, the 50-story tower is decorated with copious amounts of Baccarat crystal, from the countless chandeliers in the building to the 1,800 crystal glasses that adorn the lobby.
Baccarat Hotel and Residences is not only home to opulently designed guest rooms, the property also houses the first La Mer spa in the United States as well as the in-house restaurant Chevalier.
The beautifully-appointed rooms (114 in total) are larger in size than the typical Manhattan hotel room.
Everything about it is luxurious: Its furnishings are bigger in scale, the Mascioni bedding is custom-designed, and Baccarat crystal abound—from the sconces to the crystalware. (Yes, even your toothbrush will live in a Baccarat tumbler—for as long as you’re a hotel guest).
Two lavishly decorated salons, designed by Patrick Gilles and Dorothée Boissier, will entertain guests and the public with small plates and beverages.
The bar, located just off the grand salon, is decorated with art spanning 250 years—and three spectacularly grandiose Baccarat chandeliers. And yes, all drinks will be served in Baccarat pieces.
