Suite of the Week: The delightful Prestige suite at the Baccarat Hotel and Residences, New York

Considering its Baccarat we are talking about, one can’t deny that their debut in the hospitality industry will be anything less than glamorous. Occupying a prime location near Central Park in downtown Manhattan, the stylish 50 storey tower will host a deluxe hotel and chic living spaces for those seeking the ultimate experience.

baccarat-3Baccarat Hotel and Residences will feature 114 rooms, the first Stateside La Mer Spa and signature restaurant Chevalier. The petite and grand salons are beautifully designed by Paris designer duo Patrick Gilles and Dorothee Boissier, entailing fur upholstery and pleated silk walls.

Baccarat hotels have spared no expense with this project with chandeliers and crystals adorning every space. Placed in chronological order, 250 blank bound volumes make up the hotel’s design archive for guests to tell their stories.

The exquisitely designed Baccarat bar is a vision in itself with a 60 foot barrel vaulted ceiling and an impressive wall of art featuring art work from the 19th century to contemporary artists. And, yes, all drinks will be served in Baccarat crystal.
