Historical Traveler Reviews Four Seasons Hotel New York New York City
This is a 1st class hotel which is hard to fault in any shape or form. We stayed for a weekend for a special birthday, and chose the Four Seasons based parly on reviews from previous guests. We had a superior room (same as a standard I believe but just on higher floors), we paid $515 per night, (standard is $475). The room was huge (500 sq ft - and it felt like it, compared with Standard at Plaza etc of 300 sq ft), the bathroom was one of the best I have ever experienced. The decor is tastefully contemporary with marble in abundance, without being too ultra modern. This would appeal to tradionalists and those looking for modern hip luxury. Not sure when the hotel was last refurbished but everything feels as though it is either brand new, or has been maintained superbly well. As for the service, this was unbeatable. The staff are of the friendliest in NY and yes they do remember your names, (unheard of in most big city hotels).
Sampled the afternoon tea which was good, heard the breakfast is supposed to be renowned.
We took a look at Plaza and St Regis, the latter being very glitzy and grand, and we were so glad with our choice of Four Seasons. The Standard/Superior Rooms at Four Seasons are pricier, but in fairness are probably the equivalent in size of the larger rooms and suites at places like the Plaza/St Regis, and you will pay a lot more than $515 per night for a room 500 sq ft at those hotels.
Terrific value for money, and faultless.
Great location for shopping but Hotel needs a little work
Just return from NY. First impression of Hotel, lobby very cold and uninviting but rooms were large and comfortable. Great location for shopping. Found little annoyances. with room service, slow, didn't bring total order, had to keep calling. Mounted flat screen TV with HDTV but not cabled properly for in room movies. (Movies were grainy) TV in bathroom nice feature. Everything very expensive at Hotel (coffee $7.00) but that is NY. Concierge service very helpful with reservations for restaurants. They were one of the best things about the Hotel. Overall the hotel could use a little work in some areas.
Like an Exquisite Marble Palace
My wife and I stayed for one night - Oct. 2 - to celebrate our fifth wedding anniversary. We love NYC and visit often. This was our first stay at the Four Seasons and we enjoyed it verrry much. The huge marble lobby has soaring ceilings and is quite breathtaking. Our deluxe room was also magnificent. The most amazing bathroom I have ever seen in my 45 years on this planet. All marble, glass, and chrome, including a flat creen TV. We arrived back around midnight from dinner downtown and spent about an hour in the piano lounge. So comfortable we could have sat there until morning. This hotel is stunning - and so are the prices, with a capital S - but it all seems worth it in the end. This trip was a surprise for the wife and she was MOST impressed (and let me know it). We shall return.
Four Seasons is the NY Hotel for the Pampered Traveler
Spent 4 wonderful days at the Four Seasons this August. Stayed in a Deluxe King (2806). These rooms are wonderful. My family really enjoyed our stay. Plasma TV/DVD in the room. Very Tasteful furnishings. Large Rooms for NYC. Bathroom has separate soaking tub and shower. LCD TV in Bathroom. Bulgari Bath Products. Room service menu is extensive and great quality food. (price is typical NYC-High). The hotel staff is extremely attentive. You cannot go wrong here if you love service. If you want a luxury location close to central park and shopping, this is the place for you.
My wife and I just returned from a spectacular stay at the Four Seasons New York. We loved our "deluxe king" room (2106), with its incredibly comfortable bed, sophisticated and elegant design, soundproof walls and windows, and cutting edge amenities (plasma TV with DVD; Bose WaveRadio).
Service was amazing, with seemingly everyone on staff eager to make our stay enjoyable (even the hotel's manager called to apologize when the OnCommand service failed to work one night). Room service was the only weak spot; our $22 (!) mini pizzas arrived on time, but tasted similar to the frozen variety.
If given a choice between the FS/NY and other New York hotels we've visited recently (Mandarin, Trump), we'd gladly choose the FS again. It is unquestionably our favorite hotel in NYC.
My boyfriend and I stayed here in 2000. It was wonderful! The nicest Four Seasons I have had the pleasure of staying in.
The rooms were done to the "T" every amenity was thought of. The staff courteous and prompt.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Best in Service
I stayed at the Four Seasons NYC for 5 nights in May and enjoyed it. My room (#1111) was very large with more than enough closet, drawer, and counter space. My view was of 58th street.
The bathroom had a separate tub and shower. Yes, the tubs really do fill in 60 seconds----a fact the staff reminds you of more than once.
I read somewhere that these rooms are supposed to be sound-proof. I did hear some traffic noise, but there was no noise from inside the hotel.
Every staff member that I spoke to was not only attentive, but seemed focused on delivering the best possible service. The Four Seasons offered the best customer service that I have experienced at any hotel in New York.
On one busy night, the doorman was not having much success in hailing me a cab. He called for a driver and a hotel car to take me down to the theater district.
I can recommend this hotel and would enjoy staying there again.
I'll be back
I stayed at FS NYC twice in the past year. The rooms and bathrooms are huge by any standard. The staff is consistently helpful and either attentive or ready to give you space depending upon your needs. On my second visit the hotel was full and I was generously upgraded to a suite. Room service food was usually good but an occasional dish was not up to standard (either arrived lukewarm and a little later than expected, or just wasn't my taste). When I left the Do Not Disturb sign on I wasn't disturbed at all, while in many hotels the maids or minibar checkers never seem to see this. Check in and check out was quick and easy, and requests at the front desk and concierge were handled quickly and efficiently. I'm comfortable with the muted tones and minimalist appearance of the rooms, but to some they may not seem homey enough.
The beds are super comfortable and the large bathrooms have separate showers or one minute filling tubs - great to have a choice. Bulgari bath products are always wonderful. If you want to be either left alone or well tended to, my experience is that I got both when I wanted both.
I'll be back.
Definitely the best hotel in New York
I travel to NYC for business or leisure very often.
Over the last 5 years, I stayed in many luxury hotels such as Waldorf Astoria, the Plaza, the Parker Meridien or the Peninsula.
The Four Seasons New york is the best hotel in town. Rooms and suites are wide and beautifully decorated, the service is fast and sophisticated.
The staff always takes care of guests. For example, security guards know your name and wish you a good day when you get in or out of the elevators...
Its restaurant is really a gourmet one that can easily be compared with the best NYC restaurants (Daniel...).
Even if rates are slightly higher that its competitors, this hotel is a great value.
The Four Seasons : "Highly recommended!"
After staying in New York in the very disapointing The Plaza hotel, we stayed in a complete heaven! We've stayed in a gorgious and very spacious suite with private balcony and lovely city views. The bath in the bathroom filled within a wink of an eye:mavelous! The hotels' roomservice is ultra fast, we ordered lunch in our suite, and after 15 minutes it had been served... The Four Season is one the best hotels in New York: polite and friendly staff, spacious and luxurious accommodations, nice restaurant etc... very worth its (slightly) high price.

We then caught another bus that took us through the upper West Side but couldn't get a seat on top so we had to sit downstairs inside. Quite disappointing as really could not tell what the tour guide was talking about in regards to specific locations and photographs through dirty windows.

You find yourself walking round, wondering if the piece of Peruvian pottery is a recreation or the real thing, and if the elephant in the entrance hall is stuffed or synthetic. Unfortunately our grave robbing, treasure stealers have made it difficult for us to go round museums without expecting to see real stuff, and certainly having ...
