    Hudson Yards, with its restaurants, shops and attractions (The Vessel, The Edge and The Shed) has been called a city within a city, and with good reason. While on property, guests of the Equinox Hotel might not even believe they are in Manhattan, and one could comfortably choose to stay within the confines of the hotel and the campus-like neighborhood for the duration of a short stay. Clean and new, the Hudson Yards area manages to be a respite from the bustling city while also remaining within reach of the action – situated at the northern terminus of the High Line and within walking distance from Chelsea, Meatpacking and the Theater District. 

    Those from out of town will also appreciate that the W. 30th St. BLADE heli-port is located just steps from the hotel, and can bring guests to JFK in just 5 minutes, circumventing the sometimes daunting New York City traffic. 

    The Equinox Hotel’s large rooms and suites are entirely soundproofed and equipped with blackout shades built into the floor to ceiling windows so as to ensure a restful stay. The lighting, temperature and privacy settings in each ultra high tech room are controlled by an in-room tablet which has been set up to offer a pre-programmed ‘sleep mode’ as optimized by sleep scientists.

    Amenities include a reinvented mini-bar with immunity boosting kits, custom teas, supplements, healthy snacks and skin care products, and guests can even call for a vitamin IV nutridrip.  In addition to standard entertainment options, each room’s smart TV also allows access to AM and PM rituals, a series of video guides that offer stretching, breath work and meditations designed to maximize mental and physical health while traveling. Of course, guests may also book a spa treatment, engage a sleep couch or personal trainer, utilize the equipment or participate in a group fitness class at the gym level, too. 

    During our stay, the coveted (and much-photographed) outdoor pool was so crowded with other guests and Equinox gym members, that it proved impossible to get a lounge chair—and don’t even think about doing laps. That said, sitting at the edge of the pool, toes in the water and a watermelon cocktail in hand—with fabulous Vessel views to boot—was still a favorite moment of our time at The Equinox.

    Who Should Stay

    New York City staycationers or anybody looking for a high tech wellness retreat within the city. 

    Note: you must be 18 or older to access the fitness club and rooftop pool.
