Staycation all I ever wanted

A New York Downtown Getaway

I look back fondly at sleepovers when I was a child. The simple act of sleeping in a different place, even if it’s right around the corner, somehow made the night more special.

If you’re looking to recapture that feeling, a staycation is ideal. Head north to the slopes, out east to the seashore or stay closer to home and visit New York City.

For a variety of options mixed with some well-deserved pampering, we recommend the Four Seasons New York Downtown (FSNYD), the only hotel in lower Manhattan with a Forbes 5-Star Rating and one of only three hotels in New York City with a 10-Star Rating across the Hotel and Spa.

FSNYD is every bit the grand, luxurious refuge you need to recover from the daily grind. It occupies a sweet spot in TriBeCa, close to Wall Street, City Hall, the West Village, and the Brooklyn Bridge, though the din of the city fades upon entering the stately building.

As befits a Four Seasons, the hotel is spotless, the staff outstanding, and the rooms spacious and elegantly adorned. Our room had a surprising amount of space for an NYC hotel including a view of the Oculus transit hub and the Freedom Tower.

A rarity in NYC, FSNYD has a 7-ft indoor heated pool with a relaxing resort feel. You can lounge by the water or hit the impressively outfitted gym and yoga studio.

There’s a full-service spa with an infrared sauna, steam rooms, and plenty of options for self-pampering. You can create a personalized treatment plan to optimize your wellness experience by adding on to your signature massage or ‘The Method Facial’ by Augustinus Bader with customized IV Therapy or NAD+ IV Drip (nicknamed “The Fountain of Youth”) with the spa’s new collaboration with Next Health.

You can also get a renowned NYC dining experience without leaving the hotel. CUT by Wolfgang Puck is located adjacent to the lobby. The restaurant is an interesting mix of classic style and modern artistic flare. Wood floors and an expertly stocked old-world style bar blend seamlessly with red neon accents, giving the space a warm and sensual feel. The food is excellent, combining classic favorites with modern and eclectic dishes. If you are in the mood to dine in your luxurious suite, you can experience the City’s best chefs through the hotel’s new Restaurant-in-Room Chef Series where Four Seasons Executive Chef Maria Tampakis selected New York’s most iconic chefs to team up with to bring the flavour of the city’s best dishes to you. The menu currently features delightful Italian dishes by Chef Anthony Ricco of the famed Leuca in Williamsburg.

Recapture that sleepover vibe and turn an average weekend into a miniature adventure. The quality, style, and luxury of the FSNYD are a great choice for those who want to experience everything the city has to offer and make the weekend feel special.
