Architect Lucien Lagrange created this 60-story skyscraper (formerly the Elysian) in the style of a 1920s Parisian grand hotel, complete with a brick porte-cochere for elegant arrivals and departures. The lobby, with dark swirls running through the white marble floor, is gleaming and elegant, as are the 188 guest rooms. Occupying the first 27 floors, they’re done up with platinum and champagne color schemes and luxe furnishings, including tufted headboards and fireplaces—not to mention the Rivolta Carmignani Italian bed linens. From the pin-tucked curtains to the jewelry design–influenced lighting fixtures, it’s all très Chanel and Dior (you’ll find coffee-table books on these designers in some of the rooms). The 14,000-square-foot spa and health club is situated above the hotel’s courtyard and offers Gyrotonic and Pilates as well as Lava Shell massages.
