Is this the most luxurious hotel suite in New York City?

Capturing unparalleled views of the city below, Park Hyatt New York’s ultra-luxury Manhattan Sky Suite has been unveiled as one of New York’s finest. Hotel Designs got early check-in to take a peek inside…

Park Hyatt New York has unveiled the ultra-luxury Manhattan Sky Suite. Located on the 59th floor of the iconic One57 luxury residential tower above the hotel, the expansive 4,200 square-foot three-bedroom suite literally takes Park Hyatt New York’s renowned suite collection to new heights with the highest Central Park-facing suite on the city’s luxury hotel market.

The hotel suite features 11-foot ceilings with floor-to-ceiling windows, a full chef’s kitchen, and its crown jewel: The Grand Salon, a light-filled living and dining space designed with neutral hues and elegant furnishings, placing the unobstructed views of Central Park centre stage.

Designed by Jeffrey Beers International, the Manhattan Sky Suite offers guests a front-row seat to Central Park’s seasonal foliage changes. The suite’s sophisticated and residential approach unlocks a rare, enriching experience for guests with contemporary furnishings, an exclusive Assouline-curated library, and a collection selected by the hotel’s art curator, Erica Samuels of Samuels Creative & Co. Accessed via private elevator from the hotel lobby, the suite draws inspiration from the Upper East Side’s chicly appointed penthouses and is truly a remarkable suite in the sky for one-of-a-kind stays.

The refined comforts of a home-away-from-home include a spacious living area divided between seating and dining sections by a glass-enclosed three-piece gas fireplace, a full chef’s kitchen with professional-grade Miele appliances, three stylishly appointed bedrooms with Frette linens and breathtaking views and 3.5 bathrooms each arrayed in marble with walk-in rain showers, soaking tubs and Le Labo bath amenities. In collaboration with Nordstrom, the master bedroom’s walk-in closet is personally styled upon arrival for guests, with seasonal clothing and accessories available for purchase from the retailer’s new NYC flagship.

“We’re excited to welcome the most discerning global travelers to the Manhattan Sky Suite. In collaboration with One57, Park Hyatt New York’s new Manhattan Sky Suite serves as a brand extension of the hotel and is an ultimate expression of the exceptional Park Hyatt brand,” said Peter Roth, Area Vice President and General Manager, Park Hyatt New York. “New York City hotels are renowned for their specialty suites, but nothing in the city measures up to this new suite’s overwhelming sense of luxury and unparalleled views of Central Park and the Manhattan skyline.”

With its award-winning service as a foundation of every stay, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond Park Hyatt New York stands tall among the leading ultra-luxury hotels in New York City. The debut of its Manhattan Sky Suite secures Park Hyatt New York’s reputation as the destination of choice for the city’s finest suite accommodations.
