The Park Hyatt’s foray into the Big Apple may seem to be a day late, but it’s certainly not a dollar short. Once the 210-room Park Hyatt New York opens its doors in 2012, it will become New York City’s most expensive hotel, having cost an estimated $375 million, or $1.8 million per hotel room, to build.
Located across from Carnegie Hall at 157 West 57th Street between Avenue of the Americas and Seventh Avenue, the luxury hotel will boast stunning views of Central Park, a signature bar and restaurant, a luxurious spa, an indoor rooftop swimming pool and 5,000 square feet of upscale shopping.
The Park Hyatt New York will be part of a 90-story, mixed-use tower that will also house 135 luxury condominiums designed by Thomas Juul-Hansen.
Known for its understated, modern sophistication, the Park Hyatt has existing outposts in 25 of the top metropolitan cities and exotic leisure destinations around the world, including Chicago, Dubai, Goa, Toronto and Washington D.C.
