I’ve visited oodles of hotels over the past few years, but there are still many drop dead gorgeous get-me-in-the-door hotels I’m yet to step inside. When I stumbled upon these photos of the Baccarat Hotel in New York online, I knew I was on to something special. For all my fellow design lovers, I think this just might be the most glamorous hotel in all of NYC!

Baccarat Hotel New York

The hotel describes itself as “luxury in Manhattan”… a simple and heavily understated sentiment that rings true to the design of the hotel itself. Although a testament to modern glamour, the interior design of the hotel is simple, understated and nothing seems overdone or out of place.

So who is the mastermind(s) behind the project?

Interior design masters Tony Ingrao and Stephen Sills were in charge of the transformation of this heritage building, fitting out the 60 residences and Chevalier Restaurant with even the finest details in mind. My personal favourite is Stephen Sills’ work on the Chevalier Restaurant, as I have a soft spot for black and white interiors, given they have a transformative effect to take you back to the glamour days of Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemmingway (I still think I was born in the wrong era).

To transport back in time to the glamour days, step inside the Chevalier Restaurant or pull up a chair at the bar and taste your way through the cocktail menu. Oh – so – New York!
