Park Hyatt to open in New York City 2012

The rumors are true: Chicago-based Hyatt Hotels Corp will open its first luxury hotel in New York in 2012 in collaboration with Extell Development Corporation. The Manhattan Park Hyatt will become the U.S. flagship of the Park Hyatt brand of hotels.

The Park Hyatt New York - designed by world-renowned, Pritzker Prize-winning architect Christian de Portzamparc - will be located at 157 West 57th Street between Avenue of the Americas and Seventh Avenue, across from Carnegie Hall.

Slated for completion in 2012, the 210-room hotel will be part of a 90-story mixed-use tower that will also feature 135 Thomas Juul-Hansen-designed luxury condominiums with breathtaking views of Central Park and the New York skyline.

No hotel in New York is complete without a bar and restaurant for people watching, adn the Park Hyatt New York will be no exception. The hotel will feature a bar and restaurant, plus 5,000 square feet of retail space and include a spa, fitness center, and indoor swimming pool in a three-story aerie at the top of the hotel.

The Park Hyatt - Hyatt Corp.'s luxury brand of hotels - is currently catering to travelers in Beijing, Buenos Aires, Carlsbad, Chicago, Dubai, Goa, Hamburg, Istanbul, Jeddah, Melbourne, Mendoza, Milan, Moscow, Paris, Saigon, Seoul, Shanghai, Sydney, Tokyo, Toronto, Washington, D.C., and Zurich.
