Park Hyatt New York | a Virtuoso preview hotel

Park Studio Suite at the Park Hyatt New York

During my recent trip to New York, I had a "hard hat" site inspection of the Park Hyatt New York. Located on 7th Avenue between 57th and 58th Street, this is a good west side location, convenient to Broadway shows and Carnegie Hall. Still under construction, I was able to get a good sense of what the hotel will be like once ready for occupancy. In a word, the Park Hyatt New York will be a winner!

Fans of the Park Hyatt aesthetic will appreciate the cool, masculine, yet residential atmosphere of the hotel. Materials are elegant and attractive, and the design team has done a fabulous job in creating both public spaces and guest rooms. Guest rooms will be on floors 8 - 23 of this entirely new build with 118 guest rooms and 92 suites. Lead-in Park rooms average an impressive 530 square feet, and Park Deluxe rooms are even larger. Pictured above is the one display room on property, a Park Studio Suite at 680 square feet. Every bathroom in the hotel has everything you would expect for a new state-of-the-art hotel — dual vanities, a large rounded-rectangular soaking tub, rain shower, and WC. I found the view on high floors facing west to be especially interesting.

The hotel's 25th floor features a 60-foot long lap pool, jacuzzi, and fitness center. Michelin-starred chef Sam Hazen will preside over the hotel's restaurant which will be an American/New York grill. Other guest services include free internet, free bottled water, free bike rentals (the hotel is just two blocks from Central Park), and complimentary car services within a 2 mile radius. Park Executive Suites and above receive round-trip airport transfers from the three New York airports.

Virtuoso amenities offer added value to guests who book through their Virtuoso travel consultant: complimentary daily full breakfast for two guests, $100 hotel credit, room upgrade if available at check-in, and early check-in/late check-out if available. Rates will be competitive with other top New York five star luxury hotels; guest rooms will start around $700 in low-season and $1100 in high-season.
