The Barrière Group, the venerable French hotel company behind Fouquet’s Paris and the hotel Le Majestic in Cannes, will make its official debut in the United States next summer with the inauguration of the Hôtel Barrière Fouquet’s New York.
Blending Parisian panache with Big Apple verve, the eight-story property, located at 456 Greenwich Street in the city’s Tony Tribeca neighborhood, aims to deliver polished hospitality on an intimate scale.
The Art Deco-inspired hotel has 97 residential-style rooms (including six suites with terraces) by renowned Swedish designer Martin Brudnizki, where pastel hues and inspired touches like Calacatta marble and toile de Jouy fabrics will help inform an elegant family house atmosphere.
Bustling food and drink destinations include an outpost of historic French brasserie Fouquet’s and an ultra-chic hotel bar in purple hues, while artistic amenities range from the lavish Spa Diane Barrière to a state-of-the-art screening room and a rooftop terrace offering dazzling views of the Hudson River.
“I want to bring together the stories and desires of the hosts with secular French Art of living anchored in the brand’s UKTN to cultivate a unique and exciting environment within the hotel, ”said newly appointed General Manager Gilles Stellardo.
Founded over a century ago, the Barrière Group recently gained a foothold in North America with the opening of the Hôtel Barrière Le Carl Gustaf St Barth in September 2020. Its entry into the United States, in partnership with the hotelier Caspi Development, will mark a new stage for the company.
“We are honored to bring the Barrière brand, a prestigious icon of the hospitality industry, to New York City, creating a level of hospitality that the Tribeca neighborhood has yet to see,” said Joshua Caspi, director of Caspi Development, in a press release. “We have found a natural synergy with the Barrière Group, sharing family principles and industry expertise for generations, and we look forward to creating a space that marries traditional French elegance with the relaxed residential vibe of Tribeca. . “
