article imageFour Seasons Hotel New York Downtown: Hotel fit for the Big Apple

By Digital Journal Staff in New York     Dec 15, 2016 in Travel
Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts is bringing elegance and quality to Lower Manhattan with a newly opened New York Downtown location.
Downtown New York is going through a revitalisation. The surge of new architecture and lively nightlife building up around Tribeca and the Financial District has transformed the area into a vitalized, attractive destination. A wealth of shopping and fine dining offer tourists unique experiences within the Lower Manhattan region — and the Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown lies right in the heart of this exciting mix of city life.

Toronto-based Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts is an established name in the world of first class accommodations. Founded in 1961 by Canadian business entrepreneur Isadore Sharp, the company now operates over one hundred hotels worldwide, and is partially owned by eminent business leaders Bill Gates and Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal. While Four Seasons’ original New York hotel (the second tallest in New York) has established itself as one of the best hotels in the city, the newest hotel to join the Four Seasons family is the new New York Downtown location.
Developed by Silverstein Properties, and designed by architect Robert A.M. Stern, the art deco inspired Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown presents a classic approach to big city accommodations. The hotel soars over the area as one of the tallest residential towers in the city. The first 24 floors contain 189 luxurious hotel rooms and suites, a number of which include balconies that look out over the vibrant city below, while the remainder of the tower is taken up by residential space. The interior of the hotel was conceived by Canadian design company Yabu Pushelberg and features an elegant, modern design of rich wood surfaces and gorgeous marble bathrooms.
The hotel uses technology to its benefit. Guests will find a tablet inside their room, ready to order whatever you may need from the Four Seasons’ 24 hour room service menu. Staff at the hotel use Apple watches to coordinate their service. There are even televisions embedded in the bathroom mirrors..
The spa and fitness centre is a cut above. Just like every other aspect of the hotel, the spa blends high-tech with natural luxury in the seven treatment rooms. A view of the Oculus and the World Trade Center from the 6,000 square foot fitness centre is hard to resist — as is the 75 foot, naturally-lit lap pool.
The hotel also hosts celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck’s first Manhattan restaurant. CUT is located inside the Four Seasons, and offers a striking atmosphere with a fusion-filled menu. The restaurant is intended to attract both Wall Street regulars and tourists taking a break from exploring the Big Apple.
The Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown is right in the middle of some of the most attractive destinations in Manhattan: one block away, visitors will be able to take in all of the sights and experiences created by the World Trade Center; the Waterfront offers a wonderful destination, including the many statues and park greens of Battery Park; and stretching between 10th and 12th Avenues, the nearby High Line gives guests at the Four Seasons a chance to explore a one-of-a-kind park, rising above the city itself.
As hotel General Manager Peter Humig puts it:
“Downtown New York has been reborn as the most vibrant neighbourhood in the city. It’s no longer simply a business district. You can feel the energy the minute you arrive, and we are proud to be in the heart of it.”
Those looking for shopping will find plenty to enjoy closeby. Soho hosts all manner of boutique shops, while Brookfield Place provides a variety of high-end shopping and dining options. Booklovers will want to wind their way from the Hotel into Tribeca in search of the Mysterious Bookshop, which specializes in hard to find mysteries, and Poet House, to browse the 50,000 volumes of poetry in the library. If you’re in need of anything Mac-related, head on over to the Oculus at the World Trade Center to visit the Apple store there. The shopping centre in the Oculus, as well as the ground-level retail in 3 and 4 World Trade Center, have all sorts of shopping on offer — and it’s just one block away from the Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown!
