The New Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown Now Confirming Reservations
In the heart of the new Lower Manhattan just a block from the World Trade Center, Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown will be the brand's second location in the city (the first in Midtown), and will introduce the very first Manhattan restaurant by acclaimed Chef Wolfgang Puck.
Be among the first to experience the new Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown: In anticipation of its opening later this year, the Hotel is now confirming reservations for arrivals beginning October 17, 2016.
The Look of the New Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown
In a timeless tribute to the city's distinctive early 20th century architecture – the iconic Woolworth Building shares the same city block – architect Robert A.M. Stern has created a new, 82 story skyscraper soaring 926 feet (282 metres) above the historic streets of Lower Manhattan. Taking its place in the world's most famous skyline, Downtown's tallest residential building is also home to its newest luxury hotel.
Stepping inside the new Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown on Barclay Street, the frenetic pace of life and work in Manhattan transitions to a moment of peace and calm. The two-story lobby layers architectural elements in response to the ever-evolving urban landscape that surrounds it. Feet rest on 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 socialising, while a dramatic suspended staircase hints at the gracious gathering spaces above.
Wining and Dining
The opening of Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown also marks a milestone in the career of celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck, who is opening his first restaurant in Manhattan within the Hotel. His widely acclaimed and wildly popular steakhouse concept CUT by Wolfgang Puck – first introduced at Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills, A Four Seasons Hotel – will be accessed via the Hotel or its own entrance around the corner on Church Street.
CUT by Wolfgang Puck will encompass an 86-seat main dining room as well as a 32-seat lounge with 10 seats at the bar. A generously-sized private dining room will host up to 31 guests. Interior decoration is by Jacques Garcia, and STRATA is the interior architect and designer of the restaurant.
Like a mini-resort hidden in the midst of one of the world's busiest locales, the Spa at Four Seasons is a sanctuary of pampering and results-oriented therapies. Here, Yabu Pushelberg has lightened the palette with white tay wood walls and floors of oak and travertine. Each of seven treatment rooms – including a luxe couple's suite – is dressed in soothing organic lines.
Two-story windows line the 75 foot (23 metre) lap pool, and guests can choose to relax in loungers inside, or out on the secluded sundeck adjacent to the Spa.
Understanding that staying fit is as important on the road or on vacation as it is at home, the state-of-the-art fitness center at Four Seasons is open 24/7, with the option to work out on one's own or with the assistance of a personal coach.
In each of 185 guest rooms – including 28 suites – Yabu Pushelberg has created a residential-style sanctuary that will have guests kicking off their heels and dropping their briefcases as soon as they enter.
Beckoning from the centre of the room is a signature Four Seasons Bed, customisable to individual preferences and dressed in pillowy white linens beneath a pale headboard framed by full height panelling. On either side, evoking an eclectic residential aesthetic, one bedside table is topped by a bronze lamp, while the other is lit by a wall sconce.
At an average 400 square feet (37 square metres) and range up to the 2,400 square foot (223 square metre) Royal Suite, each accommodation is intelligently designed to adapt to individual guest needs. A living space with sofa, leather chair and multi-use table can become a comfortable workspace, a casual dining area, or a cosy spot to curl up with a book or movie. A private pantry and mini-bar is well-stocked with a unique neighbourhood collection of food, beverage and amenities – ready for anytime noshing or in-room entertaining. At-one's-fingertips-technologies and task lighting are everywhere, from the ergonomic workstation to the bedside tables and even in the bathroom (which is otherwise rather spa-like with its elliptical freestanding tub and separate shower, and the wall-to-wall mirror above an extra-wide vanity).
Living at Four Seasons
With a separate entrance at 30 Park Place, Lower Manhattan's most coveted private address is perched above the new Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown.

Stern and priced between at USD 3.75 and 32.5 million, there are 157 Four Seasons Private Residences ranging from one to five bedrooms, all serviced by Four Seasons and with full access to all Hotel facilities.
