Oo-La-La Comes To New York, Thanks To Hotel Barriere Fouquet’s, A New Tribeca Hotel

More From Forbes

Get ready for some joie de vivre!

September marked the much-anticipated opening of Hotel Barrière Fouquet's New York in Tribeca. The stunning 97-room luxury hotel is a joint venture between the iconic French brand Groupe Barrière and Caspi Development. Located at 456 Greenwich Street, the property brings a new level of sophistication to the bustling streets of New York. Designed by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, the hotel perfectly blends Parisian opulence with Tribeca panache.

And voila! It’s super chic.

If you love Toile de Jouy and all-things-French – this is the place for you. What is toile, you ask? Toile de Jouy is cotton or linen that is printed with designs of landscapes and figures for which the 18th-century factory of Jouy-en-Josas, which was located near Versailles, was famous. The hotel created its own signature toile wallpaper, to make the experience all the more authentically French. The result? It’s toile-rific!

Hotel Barrière Fouquet’s New York is Groupe Barrière’s début property in the United States. The fourth-generation, family-run group was founded in 1912 and operates various luxury properties worldwide, including Le Carl Gustaf in St. Barth's, Le Majestic in Cannes, Fouquet's Paris on the Champs-Elysées (where I am lucky to say I once had dinner) and the Palace Les Neiges in Courchevel.

“The opening of Hotel Barrière Fouquet’s New York is a massive achievement for Groupe Barriere and our teams,” said Dominique Desseigne, Chairman and CEO of Groupe Barrière. “I am proud to see our iconic and symbolic brand Fouquet’s cross the Atlantic and look forward to continuing to share our French art de vivre.”

Hotel Barrière Fouquet's New York is designed by the internationally acclaimed Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, led by interior designer and architect Martin Brudnizki. The hotel’s design blends the modern industrialism of Tribeca and the elegant classism of Paris, which is shone through the property’s Art-Deco inspiration. Brudnizki pays homage to the brand’s Parisian roots through the hotel’s molding, use of elegant fabrics, and the lavender-centric color scheme seen throughout the hotel.

Here, purple reigns.

Hotel Barrière Fouquet's New York features 97 guest rooms and suites, including 65 standard King Rooms, 29 Corner and Terrace Suites, and duplex penthouse suite “Le Grand Appartement Terrasse.” The guest rooms and suites feature Art Deco-inspired furniture, European Style Chandeliers, and , as I said before, the hotel’s very own Toile de Jouy wallpaper - designed by Schumacher Hospitality fashioning an experience unique to the property.

The hotel’s crown jewel is Le Grand Appartement Terrasse, an expansive two-story suite located on the 7th and 8th floors of the hotel. The Presidential Suite features unique colors showcasing soft greens, blues, and golds, departing from the primary scheme used throughout the hotel. The suite comprises two and a half bathrooms, entertaining and dining areas, an executive office, a master suite with a private terrace, a king-size bedroom, and three private balconies on the hotel's east and west. The suite's interior features glossier finishes, antiqued mirrors, plush fabrics, a massive chandelier, and floor-to-ceiling murals of exotic gardens and landscapes line the stairwell and entry walls. Rates are about $20,000 per night. (Deluxe room rates start at about $1,150 per night.)

Hotel Barrière Fouquet’s New York will feature two French inspired dining destinations, Fouquet’s New York and Par Ici Café. Fouquet's New York serves as the New York outpost for Groupe Barrière's iconic French brasserie Fouquet's. Acclaimed Chef Pierre Gagnaire will continue his creative partnership with Groupe Barrière and oversee Fouquet's, New York, as he does with all Fouquet's restaurants. Around two-thirds of the brasserie's menu will mirror the original, with the rest of the menu taking inspiration from New York's rich culinary heritage and local farms and fisheries. In addition to the brasserie, the hotel features Par Ici Café, which serves a menu of vegetarian dishes. The vegetarian café emphasizes the versatility of locally grown produce through the kitchen team's classically trained techniques. The property also features Titsou Bar, which takes inspiration from French speakeasy Le Marta Paris.

And get ready for more French panache at the spa. Spa Diane Barrière, named after the late president of Groupe Barrière Diane Barrière-Desseigne, serves as the property's haven for well-being and beauty. The spa will feature a menu of signature treatments, five treatment rooms, an indoor swimming pool, and a salon. The spa will use the brand's products and highly personalized skin and beauty treatments in partnership with Biologique Recherche. Hôtel Barrière Fouquet's New York features a fitness center by Dogpound, a luxury personalized training gym founded by Kirk Myers in 2016. The fitness center features Dogpound’s signature design and equipment, along with access to their highly skilled personal trainers.

So you can indulge in that oh-so-French chocolate croissant with no guilt!
