Baccarat Hotel & Residences, Midtown Manhattan, New York, USA
When you’re a legendary French crystal company that’s commemorating a glittering 251-year history, is there any better way to celebrate than by opening your very own crystal palace in one of the most dazzling cities on the planet?
An absolute gem of an hotel, where no expense has been spared, and with Baccarat details everywhere. Think sparkly vaulted ceilings, grand chandeliers, crystal objets d'art throughout and seductive settings with French-style landscapes that overlook Manhattan's Museum of Modern Art.
Sleekly-designed rooms and suites are swathed in cashmere throws and Mascioni jacquard linens, with exclusive amenities courtesy of Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris – even the towels are lightly scented with the brand's signature fragrance.
It's also home to the first Stateside spa by iconic anti-aging French skincare brand, La Mer, an indoor 50-foot pool that's been inspired by the cabanas of the Côte d'Azur, and an exquisite bar where – yes, you guessed it – all drinks are served in Baccarat crystal. Culinary offerings are brought to you at Chevalier by Executive Chef, Shea Gallante, and Restaurant Director, Charles Masson (of La Grenouille fame).
