Park Hyatt New York

One of the most exciting luxury hotel debuts of 2014 will take place in Manhattan this summer. The Park Hyatt New York has already generated a lot of buzz in advance of its opening, and we’ve got the skinny. First there’s the building itself… designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Christian de Portzamparc, and soaring 90 storeys above Midtown Manhattan. Located at 153 West 57th Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, across from Carnegie Hall, the Park Hyatt New York will be housed in the first 25 floors of the One57 skyscraper.

With the standard rooms starting at 475 square feet, the 210 guest rooms are billed as some of the biggest in the city, designed with floor-to-ceiling windows and all the latest technology. (Did we mention the free wifi?) Yabu Pushelberg was at the helm of the interior design project, envisioning a contemporary, residential look with custom décor and a collection of museum-quality artwork.

Executive Chef Sam Hazen is overseeing all F&B operations, including the Living Room bar with views over Carnegie Hall. Perhaps the most talked-about feature of all: the Spa Nalai on the 25th floor, with six treatment rooms equipped with private outdoor balconies. A 24/7 gym will overlook the “three-storey aerie,” which will have a steam room, hot tub, changing rooms and a pool with underwater music.
