The Four Seasons hotel in New York provides guests with all of the luxury essentials that they would need in a hotel, an elegant and cavernous lobby, some of the largest rooms in the city, a fine spa and fitness center, and a beck-and-call service. The best thing, guests can use the spa for free.
The 368-room hotel’s public area is designed by well-renowned architect I.M Pei, the one designed the Louvre Pyramid in Paris and the east building of the National Gallery of Art in Washington. Pei used 33-foot ceilings, rigorous symmetry and a lot of limestone in designing the public area. The Four Seasons’ large rooms are designed for comfort and convenience to put their business travelers at ease with great features, plenty of breathing room and privacy.
The Four Seasons provides its guests with a luxurious room that’s business like. Its cream-colored carpet, ash-wood furniture, and pale wood trimming may not be creative, but it provides comfort in the high-end home-office style. Guests who are staying in the higher room will also get to enjoy more daylight as the rooms feature large windows. Walk-in closets and Italian marble bathrooms that have Bulgari bath products, a small flat-screen TV, and the hotels signature deep soaking tubs, add more luxurious amenities for the guests. To complete the amenities, a 55- to 65-inch flat-screen HD TVs that includes full satellite package is available for guests, as well as large desks and workspaces for those who there for business purposes.
Of course, guests are not only encouraged to work in Four Seasons as the hotel offers their spa facilities to guests for free, which includes whirlpools, saunas, and vanity stations. Treatments, though, are not free but are something that’s worth the guests time. The hotel’s L.RAPHAEL Beauty Spa offers guests aromatherapy massage, nail care, slimming body treatment and firming facials.
For those who want to get a workout in, the Four Seasons has a fitness center that’s open 24-hours a day. The center not only offers guests the free use of their machines and equipment, they also offer free bottled water, free fruits, and free fruit juice. After the workout, guests can head over to the Garden for their expensive but tasty American cuisine.
The Four Seasons is located between Park and Madison Avenues, on the 57th Street. The area is known more for its business-heavy neighborhood than its nightlife. But guests still has an array of restaurants to choose from in the area in case they want to avoid paying for The Garden’s high-priced menu. A lot of the attractions in New York are walking distance, though, like the Central Park and the Museum of Modern Art.
Aside from the pricey restaurant, another caveat with the Four Seasons is the lack of swimming pool that guests can enjoy. The limited nightlife in the area could also be an inconvenience for some of the guests. Nevertheless, the hotel is built more for people who are in the area for a business trip.
For people who are in New York for a business trip and expect to work than to enjoy, the Four Seasons is the hotel for them.
