The debut date for the Equinox Hotel, New York City is official. The first property from the fitness brand will open its doors on July 15.
The 212-room hotel will open in the new Hudson Yards neighborhood on Manhattan’s West Side. Wellness is, of course, at the forefront. Examples: Guestrooms and suites will feature soundproofing and blackout blinds. Beds use natural-fiber mattresses that adapt to any form and employ a Scandinavian technique of two duvets for temperature regulation. An Equinox Sleep Coach will be available to optimize a restful night.
Guests will automatically become Equinox Fitness Club members during their stay and with this will have 24-hour access to the 60,000-sq.-ft. flagship Equinox Fitness Club. Group fitness classes, private Pilates, personal training, 25-yard indoor salt-water pool, hot and cold plunge pools, outdoor pool and terrace as well as a next-generation SoulCycle studio will also be offered. Crafted by experts and backed by Equinox’s Health Advisory Board, the spa will offer recovery-based treatments, science-grounded technology, regeneration and relaxation. It will offer inter-modal experiences including cryotherapy, infrared sauna, quantum harmonics, massage, bodywork and skin therapies.
Stephen Starr’s new signature restaurant and bar, Electric Lemon, will boast an 8,000-sq.-ft. terrace on the 24th floor.
