In 2012, the Four Seasons decamped from its original building—the first Four Seasons in the world—and moved into this elegant new flagship property crowned by one of the most sought-after condo towers in town (the asking price for the penthouse? $36 million). The airy, light-filled hotel rooms have birch and limestone details, not to mention luxurious beds outfitted with the Four Seasons’ patented mattresses that promise a slumber deeper than Sleeping Beauty’s. Spa-like, sunshine-steeped bathrooms with hinoki-macadamia scented soaps are divine. Better yet, though, is the top-tier service. Guests’ whims are catered to before they even step into the opulent Yabu Pushelberg–designed lobby. A database of preferences ensures that those with glasses have lens wipes in their rooms. Even pillow preferences are logged and accommodated, while caffeine addicts will find extra coffee pods already stocked. Children and pets, too, are lavished over, with special robes and plushies for the wee ones and a bed and treats for Fido. Here, no detail is not agonized over. Even the minibar is curated with interesting treats like Prosecco-flavored Squish gummies. Other perks include the complimentary house car, which transports guests around town. Amenities—including one of the city’s top spas, a Michelin-star-powered restaurant overseen by Daniel Boulud, and a grotto-reminiscent pool—are excellent.
