Equinox is famously a boundary-pushing fitness brand, and their luxury hotel in Hudson Yards, New York, lives up to this reputation; and then some.
Equinox Hotel Hudson Yards is equipped with an exceptional fitness club, where you can easily spend hours on solo workouts, group classes (yoga and barre among them), personal training sessions and laps in the indoor pool.
You could also succumb to a soothing spa treatment, dips in the hot and cold plunge pools, or head outdoors to the pool deck for some well-deserved R&R.
There’s more though, as Equinox extend their wellbeing mantra to the guestrooms.
These dimly lit, serene abodes have been designed to block out distractions: the walls are soundproof, there are blackout blinds, and the beds are cloudlike. You even get mindfulness rituals for every morning and evening accessed via an in-room tablet, and yoga instructions loaded on the TV plus a mat, block and band to use too.
Additionally, part of the Equinox Hotel Hudson Yards experience is the sublime view: of New York’s skyline, the Hudson River and the impressive Vessel sculpture right on the hotel’s doorstep.
Perhaps the best place to take it all in is the rooftop terrace, complete with its own beautiful sculpture, or the Electric Lemon Restaurant and Bar, where you could easily while away the hours.
The slick guestrooms at Equinox have been designed with relaxation in mind, so you can expect impressive mod-cons from top to bottom. These include in-room tablets loaded with meditation rituals, blackout blinds, filtered air systems, filtered water, floor-to-ceiling windows, minibars, Nespresso machines and sitting areas. They also promote wellbeing, each room coming with a yoga mat, stretch band, block and instructions loaded on the TV. Note that if you require more space, many rooms can interconnect to create a two bedroom suite, ideal for families.
As sophisticated as the rest of the hotel, Electric Lemon exudes NYC cool and promises views of the Hudson River from the 24th floor. It also specialises in delectable, healthy American cuisine, crafted using locally sourced ingredients. Enjoy breakfast and lunch throughout the week, and dinner and brunch on Saturday and Sunday only.
This inviting drinking den sports floor-to-ceiling windows, a fireplace, artwork and, of course, irresistible cocktails.
Is this the coolest haunt this side of Manhattan? With its incredible skyline views, beautiful Jaume Plensa sculpture, and fire and water features, this 8,000sq ft space makes a dramatic impression.
Activities and Entertainment
As well as all the endless attractions that New York City has to offer, by staying at the Equinox Hotel Hudson Yards you can enjoy yet more entertainment in the immediate area. There are excellent shops, restaurants and bars to explore in Hudson Yards, while the Vessel sculpture is fascinating to admire and there’s yet more art to be found in The Shed arts venue. The much-celebrated High Line is also nearby: a mile-and-a-half-long walkway that used to be an old railway line but has been transformed into a linear park above the city.
As you would expect from the lauded Equinox fitness brand, the Equinox Hotel Hudson Yards is home to an unrivalled fitness centre that you, as a guest, can enjoy full access to. There’s personal training, group classes (from HIIT to barre), and a 25-yard indoor saltwater pool with hot and cold plunge pools to soothe your muscles. A spa and after-hours training studio E by Equinox also make this an exceptional fitness centre in New York. What’s more, the hotel serves up glorious city views from the outdoor pool, surrounded by daybeds; although this area is more about relaxation than adrenalin-pumping workouts.
