Located across the street from the Museum of Modern Art on East 53rd Street, the French-inspired hotel is flooded with millions of dollars of prismatic Baccarat crystals…This glitzy hotel has a champagne call button in every room. There’s plenty of ways to relax at the hotel’s Spa de La Mer. Located below the ground level, the spa is equipped with four treatment rooms, a 55-foot-long marble-tiled pool and poolside daybeds.”

2. Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown

Forbes Travel Guide says, “Standing 82 stories tall just a block from the World Trade Center, the new Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown helps usher the rebirth of Lower Manhattan post-September 11. All of the windows have breathtaking views of the city and that includes the nearby Santiago Calatrava-designed Oculus, a $3.9 billion art structure in the World Trade Center Transportation Hub that was created as a tangible expression of neighborhood resiliency. The area is heavy with shopping options, such as the Westfield World Trade Center (Dior, Caudalie, Tumi), Brookfield Place (Gucci, Jo Malone, Burberry) and Soho boutiques. There are also eateries in every direction serving pizza, pasta, seafood and anything one can imagine. Renowned designer Yabu Pushelberg did the room interiors and also gave a modern, chic flair to the rest of the hotel. Tidal wave marble walls add striking visuals, as do a display of gilded books in the lobby and an eye-catching suspended staircase. The hotel also houses a 75-foot long heated pool and a fitness center with a stretching apparatus, several elliptical machines, and personal coaches to help guide you through all of the equipment.”

Forbes Travel Guide says, “Every element at Mandarin Oriental, New York — from the gingko metal design finishes on the revolving doors and elevators to the framed kimonos hanging in the hallways to the Chinese gold throw pillows on the beds in the notably large rooms — reflects a sophisticated Asian aesthetic that recognizes the hotel chain’s Far Eastern heritage while simultaneously capturing the individuality of New York. The Columbus Circle location ensures that you’re in the thick of the action, just steps from Central Park, Broadway theaters and top-notch museums, but for a little time out in the Big Apple, don’t miss the Five-Star spa.”
