Would you pay nearly $10K a year to access Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown’s Spa in Lower Manhattan?
Yes. Yes, we would.
Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown just debuted Club27, an exclusive health and wellness membership club for locals and frequent travelers, costing $9,500 for a single 12-month membership.
While the membership fee sounds like a splurge, it’s actually not that bad. $9,500 breaks down to a measly $792 a month, and considering all the spa and wellness perks included, it’s not even worth a gasp.
Club27 members have access to the entire health and wellness spa floor of the Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown.
This includes a 75-foot indoor heated lap pool; state-of-the-art fitness center with relatively brand-new equipment (the hotel opened in 2016); Peloton bikes and free weights; a eucalyptus steam room; infrared sauna; sun deck and shower facilities.
But wait, that’s not all.
With the annual membership, a Club27 member also receives a quarterly, complimentary 60-minute spa treatment of choice. This means they get 4 included treatments a year (a 60 minute massage here starts at $240, so the savings is pretty significant and virtually knocks a grand down from the annual membership).
Members also receive access to private or group yoga, boxing, meditation, aqua-fit and personal training classes, including one complimentary initiation class, as well as 7 guest passes for the year, access to a beauty and wellness concierge, free high-speed WIFI, speciate rates on spa services (20 percent savings), and access to special hotel rates and VIP reservations.
Only guests staying at the hotel or booking a spa treatment have access to these facilities, so the membership is virtually the only way you can have access.
The hotel recently announced an expansion to its Resident Healers Program, adding renowned astrologer Rebecca Gordon (resident astrologer at Harper’s Bazaar) and hypnotist Nicole Hernandez as resident hypnotist. Club27 members will likely have priority access to consultations.
I’ve stayed at Four Seasons Hotel Downtown New York twice, and I can personally attest the health and wellness floor is the best part of this hotel. Each time I went to the pool (which is flooded with natural light from oversized windows during the day), I was either there alone or with one other guest lounging ( the hotel has only 189 guest rooms, meaning the pool is never crowded, especially certain times of the day).
Some of the best massages I received in the spa were among the best I’ve had in the city. The fitness center is massive, and it rivals some well known chain gyms where membership is upward of $350 a month.
