25 Jun Overview: The Park Terrace Hotel
Exceeding quintessential views of New York City’s Bryant Park, the Park Terrace Hotel within David Chipperfield’s designed building, The Bryant, offers a unique atmosphere that is hard to top. The ultra-modern and sleek building houses the hotel over 15 floors and 226 guest rooms. The building and hotel invigorate a contemporary atmosphere among the existing historical landmarks typical to the Bryant Park area.
The Park Terrace Hotel’s architects, Stonehill Taylor also designed the thoughtful hotel, no details spared. Designed with respect to the natural outdoor environment that encompasses the building, the space maximizes every square foot available. The oversized bronze chandelier intricately designed with tiny leaves that create leafy shadows on the pristine terrazzo floors; the aspen wood paneled walls that complement the London Plane trees just outside the building – the design is deliberately meticulous. The outdoor atmosphere is seamlessly continued as guests step into the hotel.
Each Park Terrace feature and detail are designed with function to promote efficiency. With desks that transform into dining tables and benches that function as luggage racks, Stonehill Taylor’s design is incredibly precise. Floor to ceiling windows bridge outdoors to indoors, and the natural beauty permeates the building allowing guests to enjoy some of the most exquisite views in the city.
The Terrazzo Lounge, an indoor bar and outdoor terrace on the hotel’s sixth floor is already drawing attention with views overlooking the New York Public Library. Guests and visitors can enjoy classic New York cuisine favorites accompanied by some of the best views in Manhattan.
