After changing into your robe and slippers at Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star The Spa at Four Seasons New York, wait for your treatment to begin in the men’s and women’s relaxation rooms that are connected to the locker rooms. There, you will find a place to put your feet up — the leather club chairs and wooden bench provide a comfortable spot, while the lighting is soft and dark thanks to flickering faux votive candle sconces affixed to the walls. There aren’t any beds or full chaise lounges, but you’ll find pillows, blankets and an ottoman so you can make do and lie down on the furnishings if you put in a bit of effort. We recommend either coming half an hour prior to your treatments to relax or giving yourself some time in between your facial and pedicure because you’ll want to allow enough time to pour yourself a hot cup of Tealeaves English breakfast or orange pekoe tea or nab a refreshing glass of citrus water or the Vivaloe bottled aloe vera juice in the refrigerator, all compliments of the spa. A selection of high-end city magazines like Manhattan and Where are available to read along with luxury titles like Vogue and Robb Report. Catch up on the latest city news and gossip as you simultaneously center yourself and relax.
Our waiting room/relaxation rooms are the same for both men and women at The Spa at Four Seasons New York. The look and feel is contemporary with muted tones, minimalist design and walls covered with bamboo and rice paper.
