Wellness-seekers are flocking to the new Equinox Hotel at Hudson Yards for an experience that goes beyond the gym.
The first rule of fit club is that you talk about fit club. So goes the custom at Equinox’s buzzy new champion, the Equinox Hotel at Hudson Yards in Manhattan. Because it’s the crowning jewel in the supersleek Equinox empire, East Hampton’s own Equinox chairman, Harvey Spevak, spared no expense in creating the ultimate destination for wellness-seekers. The hotel subscribes to a philosophy rooted in movement, nutrition and regeneration. Rockwell Group-designed rooms optimize sleep with soundproofing, a total-blackout window system, Coco-Mat all-natural-fiber mattresses and the Scandinavian system of individual duvets to help with temperature regulation. The property is anchored by the Joyce Wang-designed 60,000-square-foot Equinox Fitness Club, the largest ever built, and E by Equinox—the more bespoke holistic health offering. For the duration of their stay, hotel guests have membership and access to all amenities—think group fitness classes; private Pilates or personal training; the spa; several pools; hot and cold plunge pools; a culinary concept from renowned restaurateur Stephen Starr; and in-room, on-demand IV vitamin drips—making for a staycation investment in self-care that reaps the biggest returns in town. From $700 per night, 35 Hudson Yards, New York City, equinox-hotels.com
