With over 90 years of history, Le Bristol Paris – pearl of the Oetker Collection is slated to open for the first time in the U.S.. Located in the heart of New York city at 550 Madison Avenue this “New York Masterpiece” will have 170 rooms, including 60 suites set across eight floors. There will be a cozy yet stylish bar with a beautiful lounge area, a gourmet restaurant, a spa, a fitness centre and a 82-foot pool. Minutes from Central Park and surrounded by the city’s best boutiques and most admired museums, this Parisian hotel will be in the former Sony Tower and is set to open in the spring of 2018. The building will also house 115 luxury apartments decorated by world famous designer Robert Stern and serviced by the Oetker Collection.
The Oetker Collection embodies the finest in traditional European hospitality. Each masterpiece hotel is strung together like a precious pearl and with each addition to the Oeteker collection a more beautiful set of pearls is composed. The name ‘masterpiece hotels’ includes a pledge; a commitment to provide service of the highest quality, every hour of every day while the pearl is a symbol that combines singularity, beauty and quality. The group currently owns nine establishments, including the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc, in Antibes, France; Eden Rock, in St. Barth’s, and The Lanesborough, in London. Their expansion to the Americas will see two new hotels — Palacio Tangara, Sao Paulo in Spring of 2017 and their ‘New York Masterpiece’ in the spring of 2018.
Joseph Chetrit owner of the building says, ‘I am delighted that Oetker Collection and its prestigious portfolio of hotels join forces with the Chetrit Group in an effort to open a real Masterpiece Hotel in New York. Thanks to the great quality of the building, its marvelous location, the visionary alignment between the teams and the bespoke design concept, I am very excited about the partnership and have no doubt in the success of this fascinating project’.
