In many ways, the opening of this stately Robert A.M. Stern tower (inspired by its trailblazing neighbor, the Woolworth Building) is confirmation that Downtown Manhattan is officially ready for business. Within easy reach of many restored area landmarks including the grand Santiago Calatrava-designed Oculus and Wall Street’s new World Trade Center complex, the Four Season brand’s 99th addition is urban grandeur at its sleekest. An unexpected L-shaped lobby, slender hallways and towering walls are a more sophisticated reflection of the frenzied financial district itself. Jewel-box-like rooms are just as calming, clad in café au lait colors with 55-inch smart TVs and One World Trade Center views from the bathtubs. A highly flexible room service menu (the full range of options is available 24 hours a day) ensures you can summon a midnight filet mignon or a bagel-and-lox platter for dinner, underscoring this property’s allegiance to slick, in-a-New-York-minute service.
In the Area
Emerging from its reputation as the city’s after-hours ghost town, the hotel’s FiDi backdrop is now a resuscitated culture hub. Wander the pulsing marketplace and restaurants of nearby Eataly, Chef Mario Batali’s gustatory wonderland; squeeze in a photo-op with the brand-new Fearless Girl statue squaring off with Wall Street’s Charging Bull, and even find oases like Elevated Acre, a park on a building plateau that overlooks the East River helipad. To really sink your teeth into the surroundings, take an ambulatory history tour of the area via Wall Street Walks. You’re also just a five-minutes from the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, powerful and poignant monuments to a day that forever transformed this city.
How to Get There
I’ve stayed at the Four Seasons three times this year and never before. When I showed up to check in on my second stay, Katora Brown recognized me from my first stay and on my third stay, her greeting made me feel like she knew me for years.
This is, by far, the my favorite hotel in New York. The lobby decor is really something to behold and the rooms are really fresh and modern, comfortable and warm and then there’s the shower. That’s my measure of a great lodging as so many of my readers already know.
I have found that all of the staff are friendly and helpful. Gonna be there again in December and I’ll let you know if anything has changed. (I’ll review CUT separately 😏)
we stayed the night after celebrating my mother -in-laws 60th birthday at the restaurant in the hotel , CUT. As usual everything was just heavenly from beginning to end.i will always , i mean always stay at a four seasons hotel if there is one at my destination.
The four seasons downtown is the worst four seasons that the chain has the service is terrible there is no concierge exactly there’s a new method of everybody knows everything by google everybody is a Google in the hotel they do not matter about the Kleins the only think about them this service is terrible really the worst four seasons in New York it’s sad to say that but in fortunately it is they didn’t want to receive a packageFrom Uber they asked me to come to the hotel to received it this is not a Four Seasons this is the west wood it’s the worst hotel I could ever stay in New York this is my last time I would stay there and it was supposed to be an amazing day but it’s the seventh terrible days only things after things happen to me really the worst
I just concluded a four night stay at Four Seasons Downtown NYC. I had never stayed downtown before and found the experience to be terrific. The property is two years old and befitting of the Four Seasons brand in every way. I also appreciated being away from midtown and enjoyed the vibe downtown much more. This will definitely be my hotel of choice going forward during my NYC travels.
Standard luxury property exemplifying the highest of service standards. A bit of a glitch with the slow standard WiFi but after some back and forth finally got it resolved. CUT steakhouse onsite excellent food and service. Toiletries could be of higher quality but still ok. Generally, a good hotel for those with Four Seasons standards.
