After breakfast I have a few hours before my flight so I decided to visit the Baccarat Hotel’s Grand Salon. I did not stay overnight but hope to sometime in the future. True to its name, starting from the entrance, Baccarat Crystal is the theme.
My reflection at the main entrance, you can see the large chandelier as a preview of what is inside the hotel.
The entry hallway from the inside.
Looking out from the ground floor entry lobby. There is a fire place in the center, but you can’t see it in this picture.
Another view with better exposure.
The marble floor with the seal.
One side of the wall as stacked with Baccarat glasses. Back lights create a moving light pattern.
A closer look…
Past the light installation, I waiting for the elevator to the second floor. There is a very large candelabra next to a large mirror.
A brighter exposure to show what the area looks like.
Before I sit I stop by the restroom, its simple in contrast to the rest of the hotel.
A very ornate handle, you sure don’t see things like this anymore.
The Bar was not open, and there is also an outdoor terrance, but I did not get to see it.
This is the Library, a semi private area with books on the book cases, and a long table with stools and a selection of fine wine and bubbles.
Now the view of the Grand Salon. There was a mix of locals, tourists and business meetings.
The view from my seat.
As expected lots of Baccarat.
Being on the second floor the Salon lacks views, so the unique glass pattern makes things interesting.
I got tea and some sweets. I was good…
And a selfie…
There are displays throughout the space.
Another view of the Salon looking back toward the Bar and Library.
Wide lens view.
The pen. This one did not work so I used my own.
Planning to leave to the airport, this is the hall way on the second floor.
This is the check in lobby and a view of the Petit Salon which is smaller and more intimate.
Down in the elevator with Baccarat lighting of course…
One last picture of my self in the ground floor lobby…
Its worth a visit, next time I would want to order various types of wine so I can try all different Baccarat wine and Champaign glasses.
