The world’s first Baccarat hotel! We all know Baccarat from their fine crystal glassware, but they recently opened the very exclusive hotel in New York, right in the middle of Manhattan. It truly is in a great location and you can walk to most tourist spots without taking transportation. I got the chance to experience this ultra luxurious hotel and was blown away! Baccarat is known for their perfection. This hotel met all my expectations for a higher end property! Rates here start at around $ 1,000 a night so I didn’t really meet any back packers here. There is no sightseeing at the Baccarat NYC, when you enter the hotel, you first have to take an elevator to reach the lobby. The first thing you notice when you enter, is the spectacular wall lined with 1,800 crystal glasses.
Each place of this hotel was created using the best materials and smart design which makes you want to linger. Actually, all public places here are unique. We were first escorted to the Grand Salon. Crystals everywhere… Over the top? Not really, it is done in style… We had some cocktails and light bites here later that day and absolutely loved them. The small desserts were delicious!
Each room of the Baccarat NYC has a different glass outside, enclosed in a display case. They are all ultra-luxuriously appointed with super comfy plush king sized bed, lounge area with the most comfortable couch, desk and the most up to date amenities. The oversized bathrooms have separate (rain) showers and tubs. The décor of the rooms is amazing with shimmering Baccarat crystal accents everywhere. The rooms are one of the nicest I have ever seen and definitely worth five stars!
A full spa area with indoor swimming pool and fitness center is available and located on the lower floors of the hotel. The place was immaculately clean. The fitness center has great equipment and since this is not a large hotel (‘only’ 114 guestrooms), the fitness area and swimming pool had a great size!
The restaurant at the Baccarat offers fine cuisine in a very exclusive setting!
The Baccarat NYC definitely is one of the best hotel in New York and highly recommended when you’re looking for an exclusive New York getaway!
