Hotel Highlights: From the moment you step through the doors of the Baccarat Hotel, you’ll be blown away by the Parisian grandeur. A hotel debut for the legendary French crystal brand the Baccarat features show-stopping custom crystal chandeliers, thousands of dazzling crystal pieces, LED light displays, rich red accents, and decadent fireplace designed to mirror the furnaces that produce this brands’ opulent crystals. Situated by Central Park and Manhattan’s famed Museum Mile, the 50-story five-star luxury hotel has 112 rooms, a $60 million dollar penthouse (no less), and a luxe gym, pool, and signature Spa de La Mer.

Eat + Drink: The Grand Salon serves as the elegant culinary epicenter. Living up to its name the platinum and champagne-hued space has Jouffre silk-covered walls, parquet floors, plush banquettes, and a 64-arm Baccarat chandelier. Enjoy afternoon tea with boutique tea blends brewed by the hotel’s renowned tea sommelier (in partnership with Mariage Frères) paired with chef-selected canapés and petit fours. For dinner, indulge in Alsatian-inspired cuisine by Culinary Director and Two Michelin-starred Chef Gabriel Kreuther.  

Beauty + Wellness: Spa de La Mer is the first dedicated spa for the cult French luxury skincare brand and all of the treatments are customized to incorporate the benefits of its signature skin healing and rejuvenating sea kelp and bio-fermented infused formulas.

Curated Experience:  Ask the concierge to organize a chauffeur-driven tour of The Big Apple in one of Baccarat’s luxury City Cars.
