Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown is now open. Located in Tribeca just steps from Wall Street, the World Trade Center, and the new Oculus, it’s also close to designer shopping in Soho, nightlife in the Meatpacking District, and the city’s waterfront.
Upon entry into the two-story lobby, layers of architectural elements respond to the ever-evolving urban landscape just outside. Feet rest on cream-colored travertine and soft wool carpeting as the eye takes in original artworks displayed against rich wood walls and woven metal screens. Brushed bronze accents and fabrics in muted jewel tones invite casual socializing, while a dramatic suspended staircase hints at the gracious gathering spaces above.
Soho and Toronto-based design studio Yabu Pushelberg designed the 189 hotel rooms and suites. The rooms, which range from 400 to 2,400 square feet, are appointed as one might find in a private home with light blues, grays, and taupes. Marble bathrooms and deep soaking tubs help complete the design elements.
Ordering room service is a special experience at Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown. For those who need a working meal or a quiet night in, a new concept for restaurant-style dining has been conceived by Executive Chef Shaun Acosta, with his 24/7 culinary team showcasing seasonal bests from local purveyors. The menu allows guests to order whatever they like, whenever they like, and gone is the old-style utilitarian tableware, replaced by Acosta’s hand-selected pieces by local artisans.
The hotel also features Wolfgang Puck’s first Manhattan restaurant, CUT by Wolfgang Puck. The restaurant seats 82 in the main dining room, 32 in the lounge, and up to 32 in a more intimate space off the main dining room.
The Spa at Four Seasons offers results-driven therapies featuring European brands. For the first time in America, Swiss-based Dr Burgener brings a concept that is part rejuvenation, part relaxation backed by study in the science of skin. The Spa is also the only place in New York to experience facials by Omorovicza of Hungary.
A 6,000-square-foot fitness center boasts views of the Oculus and the World Trade Center. The 75-foot indoor lap pool is surrounded by lounge furnishings and flooded with natural light, and an outdoor terrace.
The Greenwich Ballroom is the ideal setting for business meetings, social galas, intimate weddings, and other private events for up to 175 guests. Two additional salons provide options for smaller functions or breakouts.
With a separate entrance at 30 Park Place, there are 157 Four Seasons Private Residences perched above the hotel. Developed by Silverstein Properties, the residences range from one to five bedrooms, with full access to all hotel facilities and Four Seasons service.
