Situated on ‘Billionaires’ Row,’ the IM Pei-designed Four Seasons Hotel New York embodies elegant sophistication; yet the Art Deco lobby with soaring ceilings, towering columns and stone flooring has an intimate feel thanks to dim lighting and a quiet atmosphere. Visit Ty Bar for daily afternoon tea or live jazz on Friday nights. The luxe Ty Warner Penthouse on the 52nd floor is a most impressive urban suite. The one-bedroom suite has 26-ft ceilings, hand-lacquered walls inlaid with mother of pearl, floor-to-ceiling bookcases, a grand piano, zen room with a waterfall of South African-sourced semi-precious granite, a Peloton bike, Chinese onyx bathtub, in-suite spa and an exquisite chandelier made by Deborah Thomas. There are four cantilevered glass balconies (the highest in the world) that perfectly align with the grid of Manhattan’s streets.
