“Downtown New York has been reborn as the most vibrant neighbourhood in city,” says Peter Humig, General Manager of the all-new Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown. “It’s no longer simply a business district. You can feel the energy the minute you arrive, and we are proud to be in the heart of it.”
Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown is the ideal home base for exploring the new Lower Manhattan. Located in Tribeca just steps from Wall Street, the World Trade Center and the stunning new Oculus, it’s also close to designer shopping in Soho, nightlife in the Meatpacking District and the relaxed tranquillity of the city’s waterfront.
Upon entry into the two-story lobby at Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown, layers of architectural elements respond to the ever-evolving urban landscape just outside. Feet rest on cream-coloured travertine and soft wool carpeting as the eye takes in original artworks displayed against rich wood walls and woven metal screens. Brushed bronze accents and fabrics in muted jewel tones invite casual socialising, while a dramatic suspended staircase hints at the gracious gathering spaces above.
Manhattan’s chic style is evident in 189 Hotel rooms and suites designed by Soho and Toronto-based design studio Yabu Pushelberg. The rooms are tastefully appointed as one might find in a private home with light blues, greys and taupes, providing a backdrop to a technologically advanced guest room that is filled with natural light. Marble bathrooms and deep soaking tubs help complete the design elements that one would expect at Four Seasons. Hotel guests can take refuge from the city in luxurious rooms ranging from 400 to 2,400 square feet (37 to 223 square metres) with every need anticipated.
Ordering room service is a special experience at Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown. For those who need a working meal or a quiet night in, an innovative new concept for restaurant-style dining has been conceived by Executive Chef Shaun Acosta, with his 24/7 culinary team showcasing seasonal bests from local purveyors. Chef’s menu allows guests to order whatever they like, whenever they like, and gone is the old-style utilitarian tableware, replaced by Chef’s hand-selected pieces by local artisans.
Wolfgang Puck’s first Manhattan restaurant: Dining out is a favourite past time for New Yorkers and visitors alike, and there’s always something new to try – including the just-opened CUT by Wolfgang Puck, located inside Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown. It’s the celebrity chef’s first Manhattan address, seating 64 in the main dining room, 32 in the lounge and up to 31 in a more intimate space off the main dining room.
Health and well-being: The energetic pace of the city requires both New Yorkers and visitors to step up their fitness game, and also schedule much-needed time for relaxation. The Spa at Four Seasons is a sanctuary of wellness and pampering in the heart of the city, with results-driven therapies featuring European brands. For the first time in America, Swiss-based Dr Burgener brings a concept that is part rejuvenation, part relaxation backed by study in the science of skin. The Spa is also the only place in New York to experience facials by Omorovicza of Hungary.
A state-of-the art 6,000 square foot (560 square metre) fitness centre boasts inspiring views of the Oculus and the World Trade Center. The shimmering 75 foot (23 metre) indoor lap pool is surrounded by restful lounge furnishings and flooded with natural light, and an outdoor terrace, a rare indulgence in Manhattan.
