International luxury travel network Virtuoso®, its world-class travel advisors and their upscale clients are eagerly awaiting August 2014, when Park Hyatt New York is set to open its doors. The hotel, which counts itself as one of Virtuoso’s illustrious Preview properties, is one of the most anticipated openings to occur in New York, thanks in large part to its location in One57, a new 90-story glass skyscraper designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Christian de Portzamparc, which has changed the city’s skyline.
As part of the Preview Program, the division of Virtuoso’s renowned Hotels & Resorts Program that celebrates new hotels, Park Hyatt New York will offer value-added amenities exclusively for guests who reserve their stay through a Virtuoso travel advisor. Included in the package are:
• Three nights for the price of two, July 1 – September 1, 2014
• Four nights for the price of three, September 2 – December 30, 2014
• For bookings in Park Executive Suites and above, guests additionally receive round-trip sedan transfers from New York’s three major commercial airports to Park Hyatt New York
Park Hyatt New York is located in the heart of Midtown between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, across from Carnegie Hall, one block from Central Park and a short walk from Columbus Circle. The hotel will occupy the first 25 floors of One57, which is the tallest residential tower in New York City. It has 210 luxurious guestrooms, including 92 premier suites, all with floor-to-ceiling windows. The rooms are among the largest in the luxury market in New York City, with the majority spanning 530 square feet. The interior design, by Yabu Pushelberg, captures the energy of the city through modern materials and furnishings, as well as art by local New York artists.
