A luxurious New York landmark

368 Rooms / 63 Suites

From the moment you set foot into Four Seasons Hotel New York, you’ll know you’re in one of the most luxurious hotels in all of Manhattan. Designed by the legendary I.M. Pei, the Midtown tower has a stunning Art Deco lobby with 33-foot vaulted onyx ceilings and honey-colored French Magny (the same limestone used by Pei in his expansion of the Louvre in Paris).

Centrally located in the heart of the city, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel is two blocks from Central Park and Fifth Avenue shopping, and it is in close proximity to the city’s famous museums, restaurants and theaters.

Attentive service is the hallmark of the Four Seasons brand and its flagship New York location is no exception with multi-lingual concierge service and a complimentary Rolls-Royce house car for short trips around the city.

With practical amenities like a well-equipped business center (translation and administrative services available) and plenty of offerings for families (special welcome amenities for junior guests and child-size bathrobes to match mom and dad), the hotel is popular with business and leisure travelers alike.

The Rooms

Unwind in some of the most spacious rooms New York has to offer — they average around 600 square feet and all feature walk-in closets (a true status symbol in this city). With fewer than 16 rooms per floor (many with less), the Manhattan hotel offers a quiet and residential ambience for you to escape the urban chaos.

Rooms have an elegant beige-on-beige palette of neutrals, which puts the emphasis on the unparalleled views. Sitting pretty at 52 stories, Four Seasons is one of the tallest hotels in the city and rooms have grand park or city vistas (sometimes both).

All accommodations come with trademarked infinity beds that appear to float above the floor (akin to sleeping on a cloud), fine linens and contemporary furnishings made of rich, light-colored wood and marble. Luxury amenities like AirPlay-ready HD TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi, high-powered two-head rainshowers, bath amenities by Bulgari and high-tech gadgetry like electronic drapes.

The Penthouse

The Ty Warner Penthouse Suite is one of the most expensive hotel accommodations in the world at $50,000 a night. The impressive 4,300-square-foot residence sits on the top of the 52-floor tower and offers unobstructed, 360-degree panoramic views of Manhattan’s skyline from its cantilevered glass balconies.

Floor-to-ceiling windows are at every turn, from the spacious living room and library to the sumptuous bedroom and onyx-clad master bath. Services are over-the-top, too — help yourself to unlimited caviar, champagne and even massages, put in requests to a personal butler who is on call 24/7, and be chauffeured around town in a Rolls-Royce Phantom.

The Dining

The dining areas, which were overhauled in 2014, are buzzy, energetic places to gather and dine. Pierre-Yves Rochon’s updated vision of the NYC hotel’s posh Ty Bar has a contemporary Art Deco ambience with dramatic reds, plush velvets, a working fireplace, a 12-foot television screen and a gleaming marble bar as its centerpiece. Nibble on light bites and sip craft cocktails among movers, shakers, dealmakers and celebrities trying to maintain a low profile.

Enjoy breakfast, power lunch or weekend brunch at The Garden restaurant — it serves local American cuisine with a seasonal focus — under a lovely canopy of sprawling African acacia trees. 

The Spa

The recently renewed spa is decadent, even by New York standards, and features 10 treatment rooms including two luxury couples suites. The spa also has a new partnership with premium Swiss skin-care guru L. Raphael, renowned for non-invasive anti-aging treatments that harness technology to achieve rapid results. (Don’t pass up a chance to try L. Raphael’s patented LEC 40 Complex signature treatments for a refreshed face.)

The spa also offers beauty services like nail care, hair care and makeup application. During off-hours, treatments are available in guest rooms.

Hotel guests have access to 24-hour fitness facilities, a steam room and sauna. And even if you didn’t plan on getting in a workout while visiting, you can still hit the gym with the hotel’s on-hand exercise gear and shoes (available upon request).
