Our Favorite Things: Four Seasons Hotel New York
Of all the views in Manhattan, the Four Seasons offers quite possibly the best
Manhattan isn’t lacking in its share of luxury hotels, but there are only a few that can deliver on rooms with a view. For discerning travelers who put a view of the New York City skyline high on their priority lists, Four Seasons Hotel New York offers quite possibly the best. Accommodations at the Four Seasons begin on the higher floors so a larger percentage of their rooms include a breathtaking view, unlike other comparable hotels with views compromised by surrounding skyscrapers.
Three things I love about Four Seasons Hotel New York
- Did I already say the views?
- Accommodations that feel more like private luxury residences
- Recent renovations that have upped an already modern-deco luxury experience
Fifty-two towering storeys makes Four Seasons New York’s tallest hotel
New Yorkers value height and space. Four Seasons Hotel offers both in abundance. With height and views a precious commodity, guest rooms and suites in the Upper Tower – from floors 31 to 52 – include sweeping views of Central Park and the Empire State Building.
Elevated suites, like the Four Seasons Hotel’s Ty Warner Penthouse, and other specialty suites in the Upper Tower offer generous proportions, sophisticated décor and incredible views. The Ty Warner Penthouse has 360-degree Manhattan views. Seventeen of the hotel’s residential-like accommodations have terraces.
Less like a hotel room and more like a residential apartment
Four Seasons Hotel New York is a modern-deco tower designed by I.M. Pei with 368 ultra-spacious Manhattan hotel rooms and luxury suites located off prestigious Park Avenue. There are, at most, 16 rooms per floor, and many floors have fewer, which exude a quiet, residential atmosphere. More like private apartments, Four Seasons Hotel’s luxury accommodations are washed in chic décor in neutral colors. The design puts an emphasis on oversized views of Central Park and famous Manhattan landmarks – as it should be.
Deluxe Manhattan Suites
Newly redesigned Deluxe Manhattan Suites face south and rise above Manhattan for panoramic views of the Chrysler Building, downtown skyline and the East River and the Atlantic Ocean. These suites are flushed with natural light and have 1200 square feet of space. One bedroom or two bedroom configurations include private living room with dining table; oversized closets; one full bath plus one half bath. State of the art technologies involve 48″ and 65″ flat screen televisions and complimentary Wi-Fi.
Central Park Junior Suite
Place Central Park is steps away. More like your own residence than a hotel room, each Central Park Junior Suite offers custom furnishings and 500 square feet (46 square meters) of refined elegance. A king-sized Infinity bed, 55″ flat screen television, oak writing desk, open sitting area and Italian marble bathroom complete the experience, plus complimentary Wi-Fi.
Park Avenue Junior Suite
Four Seasons Hotel New York’s newly renovated Park Avenue Junior Suites are no exception to the hotel’s sophisticated address. One window faces north, overlooking Park Avenue; a second faces east, overlooking the East River and Atlantic Ocean. Guests feel like they are soaring above Manhattan’s majestic skyline. Park Avenue Junior Suites have custom furnishings and 500 square feet (46 square meters) of refined elegance. A king-sized Infinity bed, 55″ flat screen television, custom oak writing desk, open sitting area and Italian marble bathroom are features, includes complimentary Wi-Fi.
Modern-deco design by I.M. Pei stands test of time
Four Seasons Hotel New York doesn’t disappoint. The location. The views. The modern deco design by I.M. Pei has gracefully withstood the test of time. The hotel doesn’t rest on its history, legacy or reputation. Instead, it is renovated with respect to its original timeless design, with a modern refresh to provide what corporate travelers expect today.
