Park Hyatt’s eagerly awaited new flagship hotel in New York has opened its doors to the public.

Billed as offering “unprecedented luxury in the heart of Midtown Manhattan”, the new Park Hyatt residence will enjoy a privileged location between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, a short walk from iconic New York landmarks such as Central Park and across the street from historic Carnegie Hall.

Nestled within the first 25 floors of the iconic, 90-story One57 skyscraper, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Christian de Portzamparc, the 210 room hotel features 92 premier suites, all with floor-to-ceiling windows offering stunning views of Manhattan.

Interior design firm Yabu Pushelberg created the aesthetic vision for the hotel’s interior design, which was inspired by New York’s most prestigious Upper East Side homes.

Katherine Melchior Ray, Vice President of Luxury Brands for Hyatt, said: “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.

“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.”

The hotel is working with Carnegie Hall, Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Central Park Conservancy and Sotheby’s, among others, to offer its guests personalised New York experiences.

Art enthusiasts can 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.

Nightly rates for a standard room at Park Hyatt New York range from $795 to $1,295.
