Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown
New York visitors can get a taste of downtown living with a visit to this five-star hotel, which is located within walking distance to sites like the Westfield World Trade Center, Brookfield Place, the Seaport District, and Battery Park. Guests can choose from 189 rooms and suites, each of which is outfitted with deep soaking tubs, TVs in bathroom mirrors, signature beds, and state-of-the-art creature comforts (from a Lutron system that controls lights and curtains to iPads used for in-room dining, housekeeping needs, and concierge requests). When dinner time strikes, visitors needn’t go far — the property houses CUT by Wolfgang Puck, where modern-day steakhouse interpretations take the form of plates like Austrian white asparagus “gratin,” Kurobuta pork chop with golden raisin moustarda, and Japanese Wagyu beef. Be sure to catch some laps at the 75-foot indoor heated pool before a visit to the spa’s sun terrace, an urban oasis in and of itself.

But the concierge is also full of recommendations to encourage you to venture out to experience some of the latest and greatest that New York has to offer—and we guarantee you’ll uncover some downtown discoveries of your own.
