This $27 million, 4-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom residence is just one of 60 that sit atop the Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York in Midtown Manhattan. It’s the 250-year-old French crystal-maker’s first foray into real estate, and the pedigree shows: The Tony Ingrao-designed residences each have an opulent crystal chandelier, as well as Baccarat lighting fixtures and door handles. The apartments also come with access to the hotel’s many amenities, including concierges, in-home chefs, baby-sitters, and membership in the hotel’s pool, spa and fitness center. There’s even a vintage Citroën and chauffeur on call to take you wherever you want to go. Tres chic!
Starwood Capital built the Baccarat hotel and condominium project with developer Tribeca Associates. The property, with a 125-foot-wide (38-meter-wide) corrugated crystal facade, is across the street from the Museum of Modern Art. The hotel will be managed under a long-term contract by Greenwich, Connecticut-based Starwood’s SH Group.
“Sunshine shares our long-term strategic vision for Baccarat Hotels and will be an excellent partner for the growth of our brands, particularly in the fast-growing travel markets of Asia,” Sternlicht said in the statement. Additional Baccarat Hotels are under construction in Dubai and Rabat, Morocco, he said.
Rooms at the New York hotel feature four-poster beds flanked by marble nightstands, Baccarat crystal light fixtures, white-marble bathroom floors and flat-screen televisions concealed within smoked mirrors, according to the property’s website. The property also has a Spa de la Mer, fitness center and indoor pool.
Nightly rates for the week of March 9 start at $729 for a “classic king” and top out at $18,729 for the “Baccarat suite,” the website shows.
