Baccarat Hotel New York

Opened in 2015 and located on West 53rd Street, across the road from the MoMA and just a few steps away from the iconic Fifth Avenue, the hotel features 114 rooms and suites and a quite unique design perfectly mixing French 18th century refined aesthetic with 21st century modernity in an elegant tribute to both the heritage of French crystal manufacturer Baccarat, founded in 1764, and the vibrant atmosphere of New York City.

OVERVIEW

Baccarat Hotel New York delights guests by combining the noble heritage and perfect craft of the legendary French crystal company with a modern flair and elements of unexpected magic. The hotel has been conceived in the style of a sumptuous hôtel particulier by Paris-based interior design firm, Gilles & Boissier.

The Midtown Manhattan tower features a prismatic glass facade, which fittingly recalls the radiance of Baccarat crystal and subtly reflects and refracts light across its 50 stories.

BACCARAT

The hotel interiors have been imagined and designed by acclaimed French designer duo Dorothée Boissiers and Patricks Gilles and each and every room of the hotel is accented with Baccarat crystal and touches of Baccarat signature red.

In the lobby, a fascinating LED lights illuminated wall formed with 1,824 Harcourt (Baccarat’s oldest and most iconic design) crystal glasses welcomes the guests who can then unwind in the peace and quiet of the plush salons, surrounded by re-contextualized Baccarat crystal elements illuminated by custom-made crystal chandeliers.

In the rooms and suites, a lavish custom-designed Baccarat-red enamel minibar offers Baccarat glasses and silverware while bathroom amenities have been exclusively imagined by Parisian perfumer Maison Francis Kurkdjian based on Baccarat Rouge 540, an oriental fragrance launched in 2015. Press the Champagne button on the telephone to order your favorite vintage, it will be delivered to you accompanied by signature Baccarat fluted glasses.

ART

The hotel features an exclusive art collection, created by French curators Stéphanie and Frédéric Chambre, and spanning the major aesthetic movements from 1764, founding year of Baccarat, to present days. An eclectic and unique collection.

Baccarat Hotel New York has also commissioned 11 artists to revisit the iconic Baccarat Harcourt glass and incorporate it into art. These unique pieces are displayed in lit glasses vitrines at the landing of the rooms and suites.
