Not on par with other luxury spas. I make a point of going to a spa when ever I travel and this was the least memorable experience I've had. I'm a long time Guerlain girl and was excited to finally visit the spa. The massage itself was nice but the facilities, service, and lack of Guerlain products was a downer.... More

Spas in NYC can be hit or miss, but I've been here several times and it has always been a great experience. The spa is beautiful, the rooms and amenities are great and the estheticians and massage therapists are phenomenal. You can often find a voucher for discounted services on Gilt.com too, which is a plus. I buy them whenever... More

Make sure you communicate with them and get confirmation of your appointment and what services you want! Bought a deal for a facial or massage for my mother in law. They didn't ask her which she wanted when she booked the appointment and she doesn't go to the spa often or at all. So she didn't know she was supposed... More

From the minute we walked through reception, we were treated like royalty. I gifted my daughter (and myself) pedicures for her birthday, and I must say, Rodica was an absolute dream. I'm so pleased with our experience. Can't wait to go back!

This facility is very clean and inviting. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. There were lockers available for personal belongings and soft, comfortable Robes & Slippers for changing. It was the best Aromatherapy Massage I have ever had. Very soothing, soft music & scents. It was most relaxing hour. Perfect!!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
