Wayfarer TV exclusive: Inside New York’s luxurious Four Seasons Downtown hotel

27 Barclay Street, New York, NY, 10007

by James Wilkinson

Four Seasons New York Downtown has firmly held the mantle of being one of the Big Apple’s most luxurious hotels since it first opened in late 2016.

Since it debuted, the hotel has been setting new in-room technology benchmarks for the global chain, including curtains that open and lights come on automatically when you enter the room, luxurious Bose surround sound systems and 55-inch smart TVs, as well as refrigerated private drawer fridge-like bars.

The rooms also come complete with antique glassware, large beds and plush linens, and stunning bathrooms with large tubs, oversized basins, TVs in mirrors and walk-in showers as standard in every room.

Four Seasons New York Downtown also has an indoor 23-metre heated pool, which features lounges with views over the Oculus train station at the World Trade Center, a day spa with a well-stocked boutique, and top-notch food and beverage, led by a Cut by Wolfgang Puck eatery that’s one of the noted chef’s best dining installations on the planet yet.

While the hardware is top notch, what accentuates the stay here is the service, which is some of the best we’ve seen from Four Seasons globally.

To find out more about the brilliant new property, WAYFARER Editor-In-Chief and Host, James Wilkinson, caught up with General Manager, Thomas Carreras.

United Airlines flies daily to New York’s Newark Liberty International Airport from across the globe, with many aircraft now featuring the airline’s new Polaris Business Class suite.

Each United Polaris Business Class suite-like pod (available on selected Boeing 777, 787 and 767 aircraft) features direct access to the aisle, a 180-degree flat-bed that measures 6’6” and 23 inches wide with infinite seat recline options and one-touch lumbar support, ample storage, multiple surfaces that enable passengers to dine while working, universal A/C power as well as 2-USB ports, a 16-inch high-definition entertainment screen, electronic privacy dividers for seats in the center of the cabin, mood lighting and an illuminated ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign.

Additionally, a new marble-topped bar unit offers customers in business class a place to grab a mid-flight drink or snack.

The airline says this new seat “represents the latest in the continued roll-out of United Polaris, the airline’s most significant product transformation in more than a decade, featuring a reimagined, sleep-enhancing experience for intercontinental travellers”.

United is fast becoming one of the world’s leading airlines for business and luxury travellers, thanks to the new Polaris suites, as well as new lounges and routes across the world.

In an exclusive interview, United Airlines’ Director of Premium Services, Alexander Dorow, talks to WAYFARER Host and Editor-In-Chief, James Wilkinson, in Chicago about the new Polaris Lounges across the United States, the new onboard product in Business Class and Premium Plus and much more.
