Wayfarer TV: Inside Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown

27 Barclay Street, New York, NY, 10007

by James Wilkinson

Lower Manhattan’s hotel scene has been thriving over the past 12 months, following the opening new bars, restaurants and significantly, a Four Seasons Hotel that’s one of the best New York has ever seen.

The luxury brand’s latest NYC opening, Four Seasons New York Downtown, is setting new benchmarks for the global chain, from the in-room technology, where curtains open and lights come on automatically when you enter the room alongside Bose surround sound systems and 55-inch smart TVs; to the refrigerated private drawer fridge-like bars and antique glassware; the bathrooms, which feature large tubs, oversized basins, TVs in mirrors and walk-in showers as standard in every room; the indoor 23-metre heated pool, which features plush lounges and with views over the Occulus train station at the World Trade Center; the day spa with a well-stocked boutique; and the food, 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.
