Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown

Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown

The classic Four Seasons Hotel gets an edgy makeover at its Downtown digs (it does border trendy TriBeCa, after all.) But since it’s still a Four Seasons, there’s clearly no shortage of luxe amenities. Woo clients—not to mention, yourself—with a full-service spa, lap pool, and eclectic fare at Wolfgang Puck’s CUT.

And check out this savvy business deal: the longer your trip, the less you pay per night.

Grand Hyatt New York

Grand Hyatt New York

4 out of 5 stars

Efficiency and convenience is the name of the game at this Midtown hotel. Tens of thousands of feet of meeting space ranging from the Manhattan Ballroom to smaller executive boardrooms? Check. Connected directly to Grand Central Terminal? Yep. Express check-in kiosks? You know it. Currency exchange center? Consider yourself covered.

New York Marriott Marquis

New York Marriott Marquis

Power lunches reach all new heights at The View, the Marriott’s top floor revolving restaurant with unbeatable views of the NYC skyline. On the lower floors, 48 separate meeting rooms and an easy-to-use online scheduler simply coordinate conferences. And given the hotel’s prime Times Square location, catching a Broadway show during your downtime can be accomplished in a matter of blocks.

Loews Regency Hotel New York

Loews Regency Hotel New York

Sure, the Loews brings it big with the business amenities like complimentary shoeshines, 24-hour business centers for insomniacs, and a giant, contemporary conference room. But the real reason it cracked this list is the famous Loews Power Breakfast. This relic of the 70s is straight out of the Wolf of Wall Street; it’s quite possible you’re eating an Eggs Benedict next to some of the biggest heavy hitters in the corporate world. Get your elevator pitch ready.

Bryant Park Hotel

Bryant Park Hotel

3 out of 5 stars

Upon walking in the Bryant Park Hotel, you just feel the need to close a deal. The old school New York vibe that permeates throughout the entire lobby may have something to do with it. There’s also the Gothic-themed Cellar Bar and swanky Japanese restaurant Koi. Or perhaps it’s the boardroom suite with a massive cherry wood conference table that looks like it belongs to Gordon Gekko that really clinches it.

East Village Hotel

East Village Hotel

Situated above local coffee joint, The Bean, the East Village Hotel is reminiscent of a studio apartment—exposed brick and walk-up charm included. There isn’t much to offer in terms of luxury amenities, but rooms feature kitchenettes with stainless steel appliances, free Wi-Fi and flat screen TVs. Pillow top mattresses and large windows add the extra bit of comfort needed to create a homey vibe in this studio-like setting.
