Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown
What We Love
- It’s steps from the Hudson River waterfront
- The indoor lap pool with an underwater soundtrack
- The first NYC location for chef Wolfgang Puck’s international steakhouse, CUT
- A 24/7 gym
What To Know
- The skyscraper is downtown Manhattan’s tallest residential building
- Larger suites here have balconies
- The hotel is a mix of 157 private residences and 189 guest rooms
- The spa menu includes Switzerland-based Dr. Pauline Burgener’s debut treatments for an American clientele
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 give credit where credit is earned and due! Great job @ Four Seasons team. Always with impeccable service, clean rooms and great guest experience .
Always super helpful concierge on hand, well deserved clef d’or .
Looking forward to our next visit .
This FS hotel exceeds even the high standards one rightfully expects for a FS property. The design, decor, and attention to detail combine to create an environment that is at once beautiful, artful, modern, intimate and serene -- no small accomplishment, and a wonderful sanctuary from the intense tempo of NYC.
Sleeping room design and bedding are very conducive to restful sleep -- there is an excellent gymnasium -- excellent cuisine, as well. The hotel does not operate its own restaurant, but Wolfgang Puck's "Cut" is on the property and the food, service and atmosphere were all truly superb. Of course, the hotel does provide room service, and our meals were unfailingly punctual and deliciously well-prepared.
The general manager, Mr. Thomas Carreras, is to be commended for leading a team that exudes exceptional personality, obvious intelligence, and a commitment to excellence in hospitality, and they are as efficient and effective in their respective positions as they are charming.
This is one of the most accomplished and commendable FS properties within their highly regarded portfolio.
My husband and I have been to several Four Seasons resorts and this hotel surely stood out. The staff was friendly and attentive. The rooms were clean and had spectacular views. I would highly recommend this Four Seasons hotel.
Our annual couples trip to the area where I attend a conference and we stay two or three extra days for pleasure. This has become our favorite hotel in the city because it is convenient, beautiful and the staff is outstanding.
Great weekend with my daughter for eating and shopping . First time staying down town . It was a bit removed from major sights but the hotel made up for it . We used room service everyday and it was great food . Did not end up going to cut . Service did not seem as friendly There so we left . Pool was closed all weekend which they should have disclosed . All staff was very nice and the doormen were super nice !!! They set the tone for the hotel every day . Bed was very comfortable and tub is great. Right by world trade memorial and malls . 5 minutes from Eataly .
