THE VIBE | Sashay-worthy
Designed by Yabu Pushelberg in a calming, elevated palette, Park Hyatt New York feels like the Upper East Side apartment of your most elegant and design-savvy friend. The property feels gracefully residential and inviting in its understated elegance. Of course, the clientele is of the jet-set and the property offers a glamorous respite in New York City for United Nations delegates.
THE LOOK | Design-worthy
Open for just three years, Park Hyatt New York is a young icon with a whole lot of design street cred. The hotel is located on the first 25 floors of ONE57, a spectacular glass skyscraper designed by world-renowned architect, Christian de Portzamparc. Added to that, famed interior designers Yabu Pushelberg have created cool sophisticated tones throughout the public spaces and suites.
THE SLEEP | Living the Life-worthy
The hotel’s 210 rooms including 92 suites are some of our favorite in New York. They are residential chic and comfy, all at the same time. Lots of space to spread out and settle into. We especially love the West Side Suite, a corner suite offering sweeping views of the cityscape, complete with floor-to-ceiling windows providing a birds-eye view of midtown and a free-standing soaking tub for maximum relaxation.
The WOW | Splash-worthy
No better way to start the day than a few laps in New York’s most glamorous indoor swimming pool. All 61 sparkling feet of it perched on the 25th floor of this luxury midtown beauty. Added motivation comes in the form of underwater music, courtesy of the hotel’s neighbor, Carnegie Hall. Maestro, Bravo!
THE TASTE | Swarm-Worthy
The Swarm Study / XI installation is reason enough to make a reservation at the hotel’s restaurant, Bevy, just be sure to get there early to sit at the bar and be mesmerized by this incredible light art sculpture while you imbibe on a craft cocktail or two. Of course the real reason Bevy is the new sweetheart of NYC dining is the superb menu from Chef de Cuisine Chad Brauze. The core of Bevy is its close relationships with local producers, farmers and artisans that enable the culinary talent to create a truly seasonal menu. Dishes are both elegant and rustic, with the new American menu focused on local, seasonal ingredients harmonizing on the plate.
THE FEEL | Spa-worthy
Don’t let the glamour fool you. Spa Nalai is grounded in the principles of rejuvenation and wellness, with tailored spa treatments to meet a wide variety of needs. In the language of the Lenape people, the original tribe of Manhattan, Nalai means “serenity,” a mood the spa promotes through a unique synthesis of both ancient and innovative healing techniques with advanced beauty rituals to craft a deeply personalized experience.
