Four Seasons Hotel New York: A Piece of Paradise in the Big Apple

Carnegie Hall, Rockefeller Center, and Central Park – 3 landmarks that define one of the world’s most exciting cities; but the Big Apple is also home to the Four Seasons Hotel New York, a luxury hotel property well loved by discriminating travelers from all over the world. Towering 52 stories above E. 57th St., the majestic Four Seasons overlooks Central Park to the north and the heart of Manhattan’s theatre district to the south.

Opened in 1993, the Four Seasons New York is a combination of subtle Art Deco and stylish sophistication from the heart and soul of architect I.M. Pei. The minute you walk into the Four Seasons, the hustle and bustle of the city streets will be forgotten. It is just what you would expect and more from a 5-star hotel catering to modern tastes. From your entrance into its lobby, to the footsteps into your room, you will be treated to an atmosphere of elegance, class, and luxury. Throughout your stay you will be waited on by an attentive staff trained to meet your every need, while still being unobtrusive; this is the magic of the Four Seasons experience.

The hotel’s accommodations consist of 368 rooms and suites. Signature amenities in all rooms include marble bathrooms, leather upholstered furniture, and an overall design theme that is light and open. Some rooms and suites have views of The Park, while others display views of the city skyline. However, the more affluent suites have views of both, including the Royal suite, which takes up the entire 32nd floor of the hotel.

The rooms are spacious and encourage indulgent relaxation. After a long day of shopping, dining, or catching the latest Broadway play, it’s nice to have a sanctuary to return too. A deep oversized tub and glass-enclosed shower are the focal points of the bathroom, and just outside of it is foyer changing area where you can hang your clothes and decide on which outfit you’re going to adorn to the next cocktail hour.

While at the Four Seasons guests enjoy amenities including down pillows and duvets, Internet access, newspaper with breakfast, and boarding pass printouts available 24 hours a day. The hotel also offers a 24-hour, fully equipped fitness center, luxury spa facility, and nightly turndown service.

For your dining pleasure you absolutely must have dinner at the acclaimed L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon restaurant. Owner Ty Warner spent 2 years trying to convince world-class chef Joel Robuchon to bring his culinary expertise to New York, and it finally paid off in 2006. The restaurant is one of the most respected in all of Manhattan.

The Four Seasons Hotel New York is billed as the perfect respite after a hectic day in New York City. With its warm atmosphere, elegant styling, and attentive service, it is a hotel that more than lives up to its reputation.

Nightly rates start at just under $900.
