One of Manhattan’s newest hotels held its grand opening last night, July 14, with an homage to its French heritage.


The Baccarat Hotel and Residences on West 53rd Street marks the first venture into luxury accommodation for French crystal maker, Baccarat.


The opulent venue merges French elegance with the midtown New York aesthetic, and features Baccarat crystal elements throughout.


To celebrate the occasion, chairman and CEO of Starwood Capital Group, Barry Sternlicht, hosted a star-studded Bastille party, and was joined by Martha Stewart, Rosario Dawson, Danielle Brooks, Fern Mallis, Chiu-Ti Jansen and John Demsey among others.


Guests snacked on Petrossian caviar and sipped Ruinart champagne- out of Baccarat crystal glasses, of course.
