I got the chance to stay at the Park Hyatt New York in a suite and I took the opportunity to take a bunch of pictures of the experience.
First of all, the aesthetic of this hotel is very modern. While the suite at the Park Hyatt Paris Vendome was ultimately more impressive, this style fits what I like more so than PHPV’s gold gilded old-hollywood look.
The entrance way to the hotel.
One of the hallways on the way to the room. I have to say, that was the most confusing part of everything. Remembering how to get up the hotel and across to the elevators to the room.
This sitting room was really sleek looking, but also felt too neat to touch or actually sit in. Sort of like in movies, when the rich kid’s mother doesn’t let anyone touch the couch.
Even the pool’s design was impeccable. And again, looked so magazine-photo-shoot ready, I was afraid to touch anything!
The suite’s living room area was decorated with a minimalist touch and looked sleet, modern, and uncrowded.
They even found ways to stow information such that it didn’t look cluttered at all.
The bedroom was in between the living room and the main bathroom. Though there was a smaller bathroom I failed to get a shot of by the entryway.
Complete with a Jeanne-approved thinkin’ chair.
The view from the bedroom was nice…
…as long as you didn’t look down.
But it’s New York 😉
The main bathroom had a little more of a warm feel to it.
The toilet and shower were next to each other in the room. The toilet was one of those complicated Japanese toilets. I was just glad it never yelled at me at some point. I can’t tell whether I had a harder time figuring that out or the super fancy, phones.
The bath tub sat along the window.
I thought this was the coolest part. You could take a bath while looking out at Manhattan, in all its glory (while you are, well… in all your glory).
The mini bar had an impressive selection:
Including the liquors and mixers
Perfect for having a Thin Man-esque hotel room soiree. If you could afford that sort of thing.
Speaking of affording things…
Krug is available if you need any in a pinch.
And I really appreciated the way they organized the mixers at the bar.
The gym had ample equipment.
And how do you get to Carnegie Hall?
Practice. Or just wander across the street.
All in all, a very impressive hotel, though I sometimes felt not fancy enough to touch some things!
