First Equinox Hotels property to open June 2019 in New York City in Hudson Yards; Los Angeles, Santa Clara, CA, Chicago, Seattle and Houston to Follow.
Equinox Hotels designed rooms as the ultimate sleep chamber.
Equinox Hotels released the first wave of details for the property, including design partners, room features, and guest amenities. Built to inspire a community of like-minded individuals and anchored by fitness and culture, Equinox Hotels embodies the same holistic philosophy as Equinox Fitness Clubs.
With interior spaces by David Rockwell/Rockwell Group and exterior spaces by Ken Smith Workshop and Rockwell Group and building design by David Childs/SOM, the property, with its arrival experience set in a private plaza at 35 Hudson Yards, will feature 212 rooms, including 48 suites, as well as a Joyce Wang-designed Equinox Fitness Club and Spa.
From a room envisioned top to bottom for sleep as a non-negotiable, to fitness fueled by the world’s top talent and culinary offerings that feed every need, Equinox Hotels was conceived as a place where compromise simply doesn’t exist, say the hotels’ developers.
“In hospitality, lifestyle hotels have grown up and luxury hotels have gotten younger in their outlook and experience. Now, as health becomes the new wealth, Equinox is uniquely positioned to define an emerging category that is disrupting the entire industry. Equinox is the market leader and authority on fitness as lifestyle, and we are bringing our decades of experience to create the ultimate high performance luxury lifestyle hotels,” said Chris Norton, CEO, Equinox Hotels.
Amenities will further anchor a high-performance lifestyle offering with the largest-ever-built 60,000-square foot Equinox Fitness Club, as well as E by Equinox, the brand’s most personalized portfolio offering, featuring an elevated approach to holistic health with an emphasis on a bespoke hospitality experience for each member. Hotel Guests, who become Equinox Fitness Clubs members for the duration of their stay, have access to a comprehensive Equinox Hudson Yards experience including signature group fitness classes, private Pilates, personal training services, performance-driven spa, 25-yard indoor salt water pool, hot & cold plunge pools, outdoor leisure pool and terrace with culinary concept from renowned restaurateur, Stephen Starr, as well as a SoulCycle on the ground floor.
Sleep is everything
Equinox Hotels designed rooms as the ultimate sleep chamber featuring total soundproofing and a total-blackout window system. The beds use CocoMat all natural fiber mattresses that perfectly adapt to any shape and form, and utilize a Scandinavian technique of two separate duvets that enable temperature regulation.
The expansive Spa offering emphasizes recovery
The Spa was conceived to serve as a central pillar within Equinox’s holistic philosophy on high performance living. Crafted collaboratively by movement performance, body, and skincare experts and backed by Equinox’s proprietary Health Advisory Board, the Spa emphasizes recovery-based treatments that feature the latest in science-grounded technology. The hotel will feature a restaurant and bar by Restaurateur Stephen Starr featuring an 8,000 square-foot outdoor terrace with views over Manhattan and the Hudson River.
Future Equinox Hotels are now confirmed for key international gateway cities including Los Angeles, Santa Clara, CA, Seattle, Chicago and Houston with several other sites under development.
