NEW YORK—Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced today the opening of Park Hyatt New York, the flagship hotel of the Park Hyatt brand in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. Guests of Park Hyatt New York will enjoy its prime location at 153 West 57th Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, which is within walking distance to Central Park and across the street from historic Carnegie Hall.
Park Hyatt New York features 210 guestrooms, including 92 premier suites, all with floor-to-ceiling windows. The hotel is nestled within the first 25 floors of the 90-story One57 skyscraper, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Christian de Portzamparc. At 475 square feet, the standard rooms at Park Hyatt New York are among the largest in New York City and the majority of the hotel’s deluxe rooms span 530 square feet.
“The opening of Park Hyatt New York marks a significant milestone for the Park Hyatt brand, giving it representation in a key market and boosting the brand’s global visibility. It introduces a new way of defining and delivering luxury for both guests and locals,” said Katherine Melchior Ray, vice president of luxury brands for Hyatt. “We dug deep into consumer insights to see what today’s luxury travelers want and need. We know that in addition to luxurious accommodations, culinary expertise, and high-quality service, they also want a personalized experience. We believe that Park Hyatt New York delivers this through locally authentic relationships and programs that will redefine the standard for luxury in New York City.”
Park Hyatt New York is working with Carnegie Hall, Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Central Park Conservancy, and Sotheby’s, among others, to offer its guests personalized, culturally authentic New York experiences entirely unique to the hotel. Art enthusiasts will enjoy a collection of 350 gallery-worthy artworks from Ellsworth Kelly, Rob Fischer, and Robert Longo, among others, with at least 10 pieces designed specifically for the hotel. Park Hyatt New York is also the only hotel worldwide to offer Tubereuse 40 bath amenities by Le Labo Fragrances, a fragrance exclusively blended for the hotel.
“From its inception, Park Hyatt New York was thoughtfully crafted with meticulous attention to detail to offer our guests an unprecedented and authentic New York experience that sets us apart from any other local luxury hotel,” said Walter Brindell, general manager, Park Hyatt New York and area vice president, Park Hyatt Hotels, North America. “We are absolutely thrilled to be opening in one of the most important cities in the world, and we hope our guests will enjoy their experience here as much as we have enjoyed bringing the Park Hyatt brand to New York.”
World-renowned interior design firm Yabu Pushelberg created the vision for Park Hyatt New York’s interior design, which was inspired by New York’s most illustrious Upper East Side homes. The hotel’s design captures the energy and vibrancy of the city, utilizing signature elements tastefully layered with modern materials and furnishings. The firm curated intimate public and personal areas filled with art and custom furnishings.
Executive Chef Sebastien Archambault leads Park Hyatt New York’s culinary operations, including the dining experiences in the restaurant, The Back Room at One57, The Living Room, and the hotel’s event spaces. The 70-seat Living Room features a bar that overlooks historic Carnegie Hall and leads guests to The Back Room at One57, an American grill that seats 96 diners and will open Aug. 25. The menu features simple yet elegant preparations of the highest quality meats, seafood, and vegetables. Chef Sebastien joins Park Hyatt New York from the acclaimed Blue Duck Tavern at Park Hyatt Washington in Washington, D.C.
The hotel’s Onyx Room offers dining and entertainment experiences and is large enough to host a seated dinner for 220 or a standing reception for 450. Additionally, Park Hyatt New York includes residential-style meeting spaces and an executive boardroom with an exclusive outdoor terrace that will open later this year.
Grounded in the principles of rejuvenation and wellness, the hotel’s Spa Nalai draws inspiration from its sister Park Hyatt spas around the world and offers a menu of treatments as part of its International Series that will change seasonally.
Park Hyatt New York’s three-story aerie on the 25th floor features a steam room, hydrotherapy hot tub, private changing rooms, and indoor swimming pool with underwater speakers playing a soundtrack from Carnegie Hall. A 24/7 fitness center overlooking the aerie will promote health and wellbeing activities for guests.
