The locker rooms at Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star The Spa at Four Seasons New York comprise the majority of the spa’s facilities, and include a simple tiled steam room, wood sauna and bubbling whirlpool (all cozy in size, but hey, New York real estate doesn’t come cheap!) — that is, of course, in addition to the light wood lockers provided where you can store your belongings. Inside each locker you’ll find a robe, pair of disposable slippers, two hangers and a laundry bag, which you’ll want to use if you decide to don a swimsuit while taking a plunge in the locker room’s hot tub. You’ll also find two showers — one with a rainfall showerhead and the other with a standard one —stocked with luxe shower amenities that smell subtly of banana. Shower caps and dental kits are also provided near the showers, and other amenities include deodorant, face cream, lotion, and hair spray and gel by the mirrored vanity next to the lockers. White hand and body towels are located throughout the locker room while chilled towels can be found next to the whirlpool. There’s also regular water, citrus-infused water, aloe juice and hot tea available in the relaxation lounge along with a selection of reading material. We actually found everything we needed in the locker room, although you should know that the locker room is shared with the hotel gym’s guests, so it might get a bit more crowded during peak workout hours. If you’re looking for total Zen and quiet, we’d suggest booking a treatment at The Spa at Four Seasons New York in the late morning or early afternoon.
The locker rooms for both men and women at The Spa at Four Seasons New York are intimate in feel and offer a decent-sized dressing area, plenty of mirrors, sauna and whirlpool, showers and all the amenities you can think of — you don’t need to bring a thing with you to get ready after treatments.
