Equinox Hotels today announced the opening of the first Equinox Hotel in Hudson Yards, New York, and launched their online booking platform for room reservations. In addition to bookings going live, Equinox Hotels has also released the first wave of details for the property, including design partners, room features, and guest amenities.

Hudson Yards was selected as the site for the first Equinox Hotel because it's emblematic of the future of New York City. Poised to be the new epicenter of culture, arts and culinary for high performers across the globe, Hudson Yards will be anchored by Equinox Hotels as a destination for visitors and locals alike. 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.

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 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.

Equinox Hotels' digital experience is anchored with purpose and personalization in mind. The club and hotel are seamlessly connected on this platform, fueling anticipatory service and removing obstacles from the guest journey upon arrival. Intuitive controls speed up and streamline the guest needs from check-in to room service, while the Equinox Fitness Clubs app connects to ensure guests can book group fitness, personal training and other club amenities on-demand.

Following a belief that sleep is everything, and ensuring a commitment to owning sleep like no other hotel before, 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 and 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, as well as timeless regeneration and relaxation techniques.

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. Guests can expect a food and drink experience that excites, indulges, and restores in equal measure, never restrictive but always thoughtful. Menus will be ingredient-driven and designed to balance flavor and fuel with equal measure, and will be available to guests in-room, in social spaces and in the restaurant itself, meeting the high performance traveler across the guest journey.

In-room dining provides guests with everything they need to fuel their days, from high-performance breakfasts and nourishing dinners to nutritious performance kits, special sleep-promoting items and next-level snacks in the comprehensive mini bar. Designed in collaboration with the experts on Equinox's Health Advisory Board, the menu goes beyond food, with guests also having access to in-room, on-demand IV vitamin drips for an extra boost of energy or hydration.
