An exquisitely planned four nights of sheer bliss turned to five after my flight was cancelled and I was able to extend my stay as this was my initial encounter at Baccarat. My experience at Baccarat was by far one of the most elegant, refined and priceless encounters I’ve had with luxury lodging. There is a unique aura that Baccarat possesses and I’m forever grateful my initial stay was an experience filled with this aura, one that has made Baccarat my home away from home in New York.
Once inside, the boutique Parisian hôtel experience envelopes you and nothing is spared to maintain the opulence and exclusivity that’s so well executed without flaw. While the welcoming and relaxed atmosphere is quintessential luxury, I was equally pleased with the clientele a they mirrored the ambience of Baccarat. From the young intriguing newcomers, to the mature, well-heeled connoisseurs, the tone set was that of grandeur and social grace. This is truly the place to be as Baccarat’s legendary style, grace and flawless precision is manifested throughout the hotel. By entering Baccarat, one understands and reveres this legacy, as the guests I encountered demeanor’s were respectable and refined. A picture is worth a thousand words, but to experience Baccarat left me speechless. Two of my favorite spots were the Petite & Grand Salon where one can experience intimate leisure in a very dignified social setting.
After spending time in the salons, I had the pleasure of retiring to a splendid room where the elegant and tasteful remained. A distinctly designed piece of Baccarat Harcourt glass, commissioned by eleven artists is displayed near the entrance of each suite.
“The Harcourt 1841 collection, the oldest in the Baccarat archive, is reputed for its iconic design. Created in 1841, Harcourt stemware has been chosen by historical icons. The Harcourt 1841 collection has also been a staple of French power, selected since the age of Napoleon III to its contemporary use in the Palais de l’Elysée. The Harcourt 1841 glass is characterized by its architectural form: a stunning shape from the flat cut pattern of the bowl to the beveled geometry of the stem down to the hexagonal foot. Its craftsmanship is apparent from every angle of its regal and graceful form. Sipping from a Harcourt 1841 glass is taking part in the brand’s storied and elegant past.” — Baccarat
