“Not worth the $$$$$”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

We were gifted a stay at the hotel (even though we live in NYC) which was very generous, but wish we'd saved the money for something else. Small rooms that aren't particularly nicely decorated, nominal views. The bathroom and closet was the best part of the room. We were left chocolates in our room as a gift (nice touch) but they weren't particularly good. Tiny spa, rooms are quiet, decent location but if you're going to spend over 1k a night for a room in NYC uptown think about the Mandarin Oriental.

Room Tip: try for a room with a view of the city or park, not of back of buildings

This hotel was the epitome of luxury and impeccable service. My flight arrived in New York at 5am and I arrived at the hotel at 6am, only expecting to drop off my luggage. I had requested early check-in, but did not expect them to be able to check me into my room that early - but they did. I was let into my room at 6am. I was able to nap and shower and freshen up before a meeting at 11am. That detail alone made the experience completely worthwhile.

The room was very big, perfectly clean, and very luxurious. The location of the hotel is great, too. Just a short walk to Central Park.

I can't imagine staying anywhere else.

I've been in many FS hotels around the world and in most of them i had a great time. The rooms are big but the furniture is outdated and comparable to a 3 star hotel. Absolutely NOT WORTH THE MONEY SPENT. FS must renovate and beautify the depressing rooms.

I stayed there for six days very nice hotel I can't say more.
I wish it was near to the time square and other activities.
The central park view from the 44th floor is amazing.
Hotel room services and front disk are pro.

Outstanding.
It is in difficult times that the best stand out.
Everyone at the Four Seasons NY did an excellent job to minimize the side effects of Sandy.
We were overwhelmed on their proactive planning.

Staff inconvienced and vocal about not receiving enough tipping....out of character for property of this magnitude. For someone who enjoys tipping for good service, I don't believe in tipping for presence only.

Ritz Carlton, Central Park, much better option. Little more expensive, but you definitely get what you pay for.

This is a Four Seasons property that doesn't quite live up to the brand standard.
