I came here to have a massage after a friend highly recommended it to me. I liked the idea of a Japanese escape in TriBeCa, so I booked a "Healing Birch" massage to soothe a lingering back injury. The spa is underground, in a two-story complex that takes you away from the pace and noises of the city and into a Japanese relaxation haven. The decor is minimalistic, comprised mostly of wooden features. The bathroom is ultra-modern (they even have toilets with built-in bidets). There is a pool, showers, and steam rooms at your disposal, to use either before or after a treatment.
I loved every moment of my massage. The masseuse used scented oils with aromatherapeutic and inflammation reducing properties. Heating packs were also applied to the sore areas de-contract muscles in order to have a deeper, and more effective massage.
The one annoyance I had was that the hotel reserves certain spa services, and usually the more affordable/basic ones, to hotel guests only.
While I was getting my massage underground, my husband brought a book to the hotel library bar. There was a wood-burning fire, antique rugs, and comfortable leather chairs and sofas. He ordered a single shot of bulleit, which the bartender generously poured (almost two shots). During his hour at the bar, he saw three a-list celebrities, and was treated as one of them by the very accommodating hotel staff. There is even an adjacent courtyard where smoking is permitted.
