BACK­GROUND

Business Traveler (USA) - - TRIED AND TESTED -

The ho­tel oc­cu­pies the first 25 floors of the 90-story sky­scraper named One57, a luxury mixed-use ho­tel res­i­den­tial project topped out in late 2013. It’s lo­cated con­ve­niently for both busi­ness and leisure on 57th Street be­tween 6th and 7th Av­enues. The ul­tra-mod­ern de­sign of the tower by worl­drenowned Pritzker Prizewin­ning ar­chi­tect Chris­tian de Portzam­parc is car­ried through in the feel of the gen­er­ously sized guest rooms de­signed by Yabu Pushel­berg, the cu­rated art and the five-star ser­vice. The re­cently un­veiled North Amer­i­can flag­ship prop­erty boasts ameni­ties in­clud­ing a 25th-floor spa, gym and in­door pool, while main­tain­ing the Park Hy­att brand mod­ern style.

As a sea­soned five-star travel vet­eran orig­i­nally from the Sec­ond City of Chicago – for­merly the home of Park Hy­att’s flag­ship prop­erty – I was pleased to find that this ho­tel does in­deed de­serve the ti­tle. The de­sign, ser­vice level, food, and most im­por­tantly the rooms are the per­fect com­bi­na­tion of re­fined el­e­gance and mod­ern op­u­lence.
