Hôtel Barrière Fouquet’s

The second night of my staycation with my husband in New York City was spent at Hôtel Barrière Fouquet’s. This French inspired hotel just opened in 2022, the first of the collection to open in the U.S., right here in Tribeca. At the present moment there is really not a lot around Hôtel Barrière Fouquet’s, but it is in an up-and-coming area. It is starting to fill up with restaurants and boutiques, but everything that has developed thus far is about a five-minute walk from the hotel in Soho.

The five-star hotel has eight floors and 97 rooms and suites. We stayed in a suite with a generous living room, a small bathroom, and a much larger bathroom, and of course, the bedroom. The bathroom at Fouquet’s was my husband’s favorite part. You do not have to touch the toilet the entire time you are there. When you walk into the bathroom, the toilet senses you and opens, and when you leave the toilet senses that as well and flushes and then closes. He couldn’t stop going in and out of the bathroom as silly as it seems, but it really is cool. At the sister Barriere property where I stayed in St. Barths (Le Carl Gustaf,) they have the same toilets. It provided some fun entertainment for the night for sure. Although everything about the hotel is Parisian, the designers definitely gave Fouquet’s a sense of place for being in New York City. You can see that in the wallpaper, which adds a big pop to the rooms. It has beautiful renderings of people sitting in Central Park, the Statue of Liberty, and even pigeons. The color schemes in the rooms include very pretty colors of pale pink and mint green.

From just perusing through the lobby, you would never know that there is a speakeasy, and then a door swings open and people are going in and out of Titsou Bar.

The Parisian Chic hotel also has two restaurants: Brasserie Fouquet’s and Par Ici Café. As for the restaurant for breakfast at the Brasserie Fouquet’s, it was so classic New York and a beautiful environment with red suede seating. I ordered the French toast, because after all, we were in a French hotel, and it was delicious. The service was excellent as well. Can't wait for this restaurant to become a neighborhood staple.

Reach out anytime so I can get you hooked up at Fouquet’s with a complimentary upgrade, free breakfast, F&B credit, spa credit, and some surprises along the way!
