Top 10 New US Hotels 2015
A lavish — and sparkling — luxury hotel from the legendary Baccarat crystal company.
Named for the centuries-old French maker of fine crystal, this luxury hotel and residence is steps away from The Museum of Modern Art — an ideal location for a property that is a work of art in and of itself. Prisms of glass adorn the dramatic façade which leads to equally dramatic interiors done in ethereal combinations of black, gray, white and (naturally) crystal. Along with tasteful crystal accents, the hotel showcases bespoke museum-quality crystal in specially designed vitrines. Split-level reception areas as well as separate entrances take the definition of "exclusive" to the next level. Guest rooms have an immaculate feel, done in soft gray tones and gleaming white. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide unobstructed views of the streets below. A fitness center, a spa with four private treatment rooms and an expansive pool provide recreation and relaxation. For breakfast, small bites and nightcaps, the Grand Salon beckons, while The Bar offers hints of Versailles and the Jardin des Tuileries on its outdoor terrace.
