A quick escape to a dazzling city is the perfect way to get rejuvenated in 2023, and what better place to visit than New York City, in one of the most luxurious hotels?
When you’re planning your getaway to the city that never sleeps, you can rest easy by booking a stay at the Four Seasons New York Downtown. In the heart of Tribeca, and steps away from landmarks that are likely on your ‘must visit’ list, Four Seasons New York Downtown does not disappoint and makes for a great place to start exploring the wonders of the Big Apple, whether you’re travelling with friends or family.
Considered one of the best hotels in New York City, and winner of the Forbes Travel Guide Five Star award, (giving the Four Seasons New York Downtown a 10-star rating, one of only three hotels in Manhattan to hold this title, along with The Peninsula and The Mandarin Oriental) the hotel is only a couple of minutes away from the Brooklyn Bridge, the 9/11 Memorial and museum, One World Observatory, and SoHo, where you can shop ‘til you drop, and dine in some of the city’s finest restaurants. (Pro tip: make your reservations early, as most places with buzz are harder to get into—the concierge at Four Seasons will help you determine where to dine depending on what you’re looking for, and will even make reservations for you).
Located in the city’s financial district, the hotel occupies the first 24 floors of the stunning 84 floor skyscraper, one of the tallest residential buildings in Manhattan, complete with 28 spacious suites and 189 guest rooms. Every room is elegant and modern, with incredible NYC skyline views, and the bathrooms are an oasis where you can slip into a large, soaking tub after many hours of walking the concrete jungle. You can enjoy dining in-room, where you can bring the restaurant experience to you, or you can dine at CUT by Wolfgang Puck, one of the most well-known and reputable restaurants in the city, located in the Four Seasons New York Downtown.
If you’re travelling with a family, the Oculus suite is a perfect place to stay in because it’s designed as a Tribeca loft, with one full-sized bedroom (including a spacious walk-in closet) two full sized bathrooms, a living room and dining room, and breathtaking views of The Oculus itself. The suite can be configured into a two-bedroom suite, as well. Of course, with every luxury hotel stay, turn down service is provided, and there’s nothing nicer to come ‘home’ to after a busy day in the city.
The hotel also has a beautiful spa with 7 treatment rooms, a 24-hour fitness centre, and a 75-foot lap pool. The heated pool is a great way to unwind, and offers a relaxing atmosphere for all. The Spa has also launched a new collaboration with Next Health, a revolutionary health centre that delivers premium wellness offerings with white-glove service. Guests seeking accessible wellness and an upgraded spa experience can recharge with services such as NAD Therapy and IV Therapy to feel their best when exploring downtown Manhattan. You can even shop while you’re waiting for your spa treatment, b because the hotel just launched The Edit: a pop up of curated lifestyle brands in the spa’s retail boutique.
The Four Seasons New York Downtown is a luxurious hotel in a perfect location and provides excellent service, from check-in to check-out. The attention to detail, superb dining options, spacious rooms, beautiful lobby area, and wellness centre will make your stay memorable—and you’ll be looking forward to the next time you can check in again.
