The Four Seasons always falls in to the luxury category. They have sumptuous accomodations all over the country in places like Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Las Vegas, Palm Beach, Miami, Hawaii, etc., etc.
Their I. M. Pei designed hotel in New York City is home to the chic Four Seasons Restaurant co-owned by the fabulous Julian Niccolini. While managed by the Four Seasons, the hotel itself is actually owned by Ty Warner who also owns Ty Inc. (manufacturer of Beanie Babies). Young guests are presented with Four Seasons Beanie Babies upon registration.
When available, there is a "house" limousine to take you to your destination. It is a courtesy service for guests. You simply pay a handsome tip to the driver.
The superior rooms are twice the size of the adequately sized rooms at the Marriott Marquis across town. Chilled milk and warm cookies are delivered in the evenings for children. The spa and fitness center are superior, as well.
Here is an insider tip: if you have a friend or family member who works for the Four Seasons, they are often allowed to extend a "Friends and Family" discount. If you're traveling during a low traffic time, the savings is staggering. By offering the discount, the company is able to fill up the hotels, and that makes the full-paying guests feel like they are at a "hot and hopping" destination.
Online rates for "superior" rooms at the E. 57th Street location in Manhattan currently start at $995/night. Executive suites start at $2,550. If you have a friend with discounts to share you can cut those prices by 50% or more. That saves a lot of cash to buy the wardrobe you'll want to wear to Julian Niccolini's restaurant where there are ALWAYS VIPs lunching or dining.
