Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York
A crystal Palace with a $60 million dollar Penthouse
We’ve all been sufficiently warned about living in glass houses, but what about fine crystal?
In March, the legendary French brand Baccarat will open its first hotel and residential space in New York—in an impressive 50-story tower designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. And if you’re the type of person who thinks it’s perfectly reasonable to check out with a hotel towel or shampoo bottle in your bag, imagine how tempting it would be to find a pair of Baccarat crystal tumblers in your bathroom.
Then again, what else would you expect for rooms costing upwards of $800 a night—let alone $60 million for the residential penthouse.
The 114-room hotel clearly spared no expense. Baccarat Hotel and Residenceswill be home to the first Stateside La Mer spa and Chevalier—the signature restaurant that will be helmed by executive chef Shea Gallante and restaurant director Charles Masson (of La Grenouille fame).
