Property Overview

The motto, "It's not fitness, it's life" has grounded Equinox – and fueled a cultural movement – for more than 25 years. The introduction of the first Equinox Hotel right in Hudson Yards is a true culmination of this brand promise that will redefine travel as the world knows it. Through this project, Equinox Hotels has obsessively pursued their enduring mission of life maximization, in this case, in the heart of New York City’s newly formed cultural crucible.

From the moment you arrive until the second you depart, you'll be infatuated with this hotel. The team here is outfitted in head-to-toe white which creates a fun contrast against the black walls and moody lighting. Check-in is seamless and done against a backdrop that showcases all the incredible fitness programming you can take advantage of as a 'member' of the adjoining fitness club (though that word barely does this fitness playground justice!). Once you're settled into your room, though, good luck convincing yourself to leave; this place was designed to take your time for maximum enjoyment.

Agent Tips

  • Take advantage of the class offered in the Vessel! Before it opens to the public, Equinox guests can enjoy a bootcamp type class in the iconic Vessel. Unique and only offered through Equinox.
  • Make the most of every resting moment with the help of an Equinox Sleep Coach.
  • Work with the concierge to secure your prioritized spot in a Soul Cycle class where in a dim, candlelit room led by inspiring instructors, you surrender to the beat of the music and get lost in the energy of the room. You move, you ride, and you push towards the finish line – together.
  • Leverage the location! Situated on the west side of Manhattan in the heart of Hudson Yards , where the celebrated ‘Highline’ begins and ends, is New York’s newest neighborhood, which is home to more than 100 diverse shops and culinary experiences, 14 acres of open public green space, The Shed cultural center and Thomas Heatherwick’s Vessel, an engaging and interactive public landmark spanning 154 intricately interconnecting flights of stairs. 
Rooms + Suites

Sexy, trendy and just overall, fabulous.

Designed with your performance and regeneration in mind, every room is an oasis: dark, quiet, and cool. Accommodations are modern and sleek with all the most up-to-date technology. And prepare yourself for the most incredible mini-bar (which goes well beyond alcohol) you've ever seen including highly curated items like face masks, clean eats, yoga accessories and even massage essentials. Plus, the EQX Regenerative Toolkit provides workout clothing in case you forgot yours so that guests can take advantage of the in-room rituals guide to get moving in the morning or to promote a more restful night’s sleep. The luxury experience is redefined here as a seamless extension of a life well-lived, elevating fitness, culture, and community for those who rest and play as hard as they work.

And about that sleep...the difference is in the details, borrowed from residential living at its best, including total soundproofing, next-generation blackout blinds and integrated technology for effortless personalization. The proprietary sleep system includes mattresses handcrafted from natural materials. Free of metal springs, they alternate more supportive layers with more elastic ones to adapt perfectly to your unique shape and form. Guests' rest is optimized as this king-sized bed is layered with temperature-regulating natural fibers. Oh, and don't forget to get cozy in one of the hooded sweatshirt-material robes!
Pool + Gym

Push your performance.

The outdoor terrace features a pool and daybeds set against unobstructed panoramic views of the surrounding cityscape and Hudson Yards’ soaring landmark staircase, the Vessel. Push your performance in the 25-yard indoor saltwater lap pool, recharge in the hot and cold plunge pools, or simply relax after a workout.

The fitness club and pool situation is just beyond your wildest dreams! This members-only club exudes exclusivity. The facility is huge and naturally, outfitted with the latest equipment and phenomenal class options. More than just a workout class, group fitness classes at Equinox are unparalleled, unlimited and community-driven. Take part in Equinox signature programming across categories ranging from HIIT to Yoga and Barre, as well as Equinox-exclusive programming on The Vessel, Hudson Yards’ stunning one-mile vertical climbing sculpture.

Leave feeling recharged by another round of REM sleep.

This immersive 27,000 square foot space manages to feels intimate while offering cutting-edge treatments like cryotherapy, infrared sauna, quantum harmonics session, massage, bodywork and skin therapies. We love the wave table which allows you to feel as though you've had another 3-hour of REM sleep in just 30-minutes! Plus, the retail part of the spa is beautifully curated with great products which will allow you to take a piece of the zen aura home with you.

Relish the sights from the expansive dining room.

Electric Lemon celebrates the farmers, growers, and artisans of the Mid-Atlantic, transforming sublime local ingredients into extraordinary seasonal American cuisine. Chef Kyle Knall emphasizes simple preparation and gentle technique, crafting a dining experience for all of the senses. Every moment is enhanced by breathtaking 24th-floor views. Relish the sights from the expansive dining room or on the serene terrace as you dine for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Or, for something even more casual, check out Broken Coconut which only available to hotel guests and Equinox Hudson Yards members. It's a lovely spot for an afternoon snack or morning acai bowl. For more grab and go options, you can snag a Juice Press in the club lobby! Dietary restrictions? No worries, there are gluten-free options and the ability to make modifications at all of the food and beverage outlets on property.
  • Bar
    Ideal for work and play, this lively space is as much a place where guests are hanging out as is a local favorite. Even better, the menu is as expansive as its views! Stop in throughout the day to restore and revive, whether with an adaptogenic superfood latte or a high-intensity series of martinis. Try a cutting-edge elixir, stick with cocktail classics, or take your pick from an international wine list.
  • Who's it for?
    While this is a city hotel, it could truly be considered a destination in itself...a literal adult playground. There is so much to do both within the property and in the surrounding area, a brand new bustling neighborhood in Manhattan with ample retail and restaurant options.
  • Location
    In a modern high-rise tower overlooking the Hudson River, this chic hotel is a 3-minute walk from the 34th Street-Hudson Yards subway station, and 1 mile from both the Empire State Building.
