Situated in Tribeca, just steps from Wall Street, Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown is the ideal base for exploring the new Lower Manhattan.

“Downtown New York has been reborn as the most vibrant neighbourhood in city,” says Peter Humig, general manager of the all-new Hotel. “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.”

Upon entry into the two-story lobby at Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown, layers of architectural elements respond to the ever-evolving urban landscape just outside.

Feet rest on cream-coloured 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 socialising, while a dramatic suspended staircase hints at the gracious gathering spaces above.

Manhattan’s chic style is evident in 189 Hotel rooms and suites designed by Soho and Toronto-based design studio Yabu Pushelberg.

The rooms are tastefully appointed with light blues, greys and taupes, providing a backdrop to a technologically advanced guest room that is filled with natural light.

Marble bathrooms and deep soaking tubs help complete the design elements that one would expect at Four Seasons. Hotel guests can take refuge from the city in luxurious rooms ranging from 400 to 2,400 square feet (37 to 223 square metres) with every need anticipated.

The hotel's F&B offering is particularly prestigious, including Wolfgang Puck’s first Manhattan restaurant, CUT. 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 energetic pace of the city requires both New Yorkers and visitors to step up their fitness game, and also schedule much-needed time for relaxation. The Spa at Four Seasons is a sanctuary of wellness and pampering in the heart of the city, with results-driven therapies featuring European brands.

A state-of-the art 6,000 square foot (560 square metre) fitness centre boasts inspiring views of the Oculus and the World Trade Centre, while the 75 foot indoor pool is surrounded by restful lounge furnishings and an outdoor terrace, a rare indulgence in Manhattan.
