Review: Park Hyatt New York

The Park Hyatt New York is a luxury hotel that opened in 2014, occupying the lower 25 floors of a super tall skyscraper, the One57 building.  The building is home to 92 luxurious condominium units on top of the 210 rooms of the Park Hyatt hotel.  This hotel is Hyatt's flagship Park Hyatt property globally and from our recent stay here it is not hard to see why it holds that distinction.

We recently had the pleasure of visiting New York for the first time and got to take in all of the great things New York City has to offer from hotel accommodations, tourist attractions, restaurants and much more.

I plan on reviewing all aspects of our trip, including the hotels we stayed at and plan on offering tips on visiting the main attractions in New York City.  After staying at the Hyatt Times Square New York for three nights, we moved over to the Park Hyatt New York.

Hotel Overview:
The Park Hyatt New York is located on West 57th Street in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, directly across the street from Carnegie Hall, one block from Central Park, and within walking distance of the Museum of Modern Art.  

Upon entering, you'll be greeted at the first ground floor on 57th Street and then will be escorted to the hotel’s main lobby on the third floor, where check-in is done. The main lobby area on the third floor features the reception desk, the concierge desk, a sitting area, a lounge with bar, and a restaurant.

The hotel features 210 guestrooms, including 92 suites, a fitness center, indoor pool, spa restaurant and lounge with a bar.

The fitness center, indoor pool and spa are located on the top 25th floor of the hotel within the larger One57 building.

The Park Hyatt has two main dining options.  The Back Room at One57 is a restaurant option for breakfast, lunch and dinner, while The Living Room is a lounge with bar offering drinks and light fare throughout the day.

For our recent stay here, we were able to book a Points+Cash rate (offered through the Hyatt Gold Passport Loyalty Program) and then apply a Diamond Suite Upgrade to that rate. 

Typical room rates here are crazy expensive, averaging over $750-800 per night for an entry level room, so using points or booking a room on a Points+Cash rate will save you a ton of money.  The additional suite upgrade certificate we used to upgrade to an entry-level suite, the Park Junior Suite King, also saved us quite a bit of money for an even more expensive suite room offering us more space.

The overall decor of the hotel is sophisticated with a minimalist design which is showcased throughout the lobby, restaurants, and rooms.  Along with the beautiful decor and attention to detail, the service is top-notch.  

Everyone we encountered during our stay went above and beyond to help in any way they could.  Our servers every morning at breakfast went above and beyond with their service and tried everything they could to get our picky daughter to eat breakfast, bringing fruit loops (which they don't carry) one morning and candy truffles.  On a similar note, the Diamond breakfast benefit is huge and offers a great selection of breakfast items.

If you're planning a trip to New York City, the Park Hyatt New York would be a great choice, as it is a very nice luxury hotel and close to all of the main attractions you'll want to check out while visiting New York City.  It is located just steps away from Carnegie Hall, Central Park, great restaurants like Nobu and the all of the shops and boutiques on 5th Avenue.  It is also just a short ten minute walk to Times Square and Rockefeller Center.

Given the great experience we had here and benefits we received, we will be sure to stay here again the next time we visit New York.
