    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.

    Park Hyatt New York Design and Amenities

    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. Each venue is designed to become a destination in its own right for culinary-savvy New Yorkers, as well as hotel guests. The stylish, inviting 70-seat Living Room features a bar that overlooks historic Carnegie Hall and leads guests to The Back Room at One57, an American grill. Modern and sophisticated, the menu features simple yet elegant preparations of the highest quality meats, seafood, and vegetables.

    The hotel’s exquisite Onyx Room, featuring illuminated white onyx walls and soaring heights, offers extraordinary 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 spacious 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 sun-drenched Spa Nalai will indulge the most discerning travellers and locals with tailored spa treatments to meet a wide variety of needs. In the language of the Lenape people, the original tribe of Manhattan, Nalai means “serenity,” a mood the spa promotes through a unique synthesis of both ancient and innovative healing techniques with advanced beauty rituals to craft a deeply personalized experience. 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. Spa Nalai’s signature treatment is founded on the ancient tradition of earthing, identified as the practice of employing the Earth’s energy by grounding the body to the Earth’s natural surfaces, and takes place atop a warmed state-of-the-art sand quartz bed.

    Park Hyatt New York’s breathtaking 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 an exclusive soundtrack from Carnegie Hall. A 24/7 state-of-the-art fitness center overlooking the aerie will promote health and wellbeing activities for guests.
