It is no secret the Four Seasons hotel brand is categorized as a pronounced example of hospitable magnificence. The establishment has also been classified as a 5 star practice, and for good reason - continuous construction of a better experience for its guests. Indeed, it’s a plain sailing idea.

Not long ago, The BOND team was graced with the opportunity to spend a weekend at the downtown hotel in New York located within the liveliness of the financial district - near the widely popular shopping attraction, The Oculus, and Brookfield Place. If the idea of having easy access to such New York City staples liven you, this Four Seasons ground is the place for you and the Deluxe King arrangement is bound to adjudge your stay.

The King Deluxe model at the Four Seasons is complemented by a variety of features comprehensively encompassing of a thrilling view of the city, a king sized bed with an option for a double bed arrangement, and a marble bathroom which is also inclusive of a bathtub, and a glass bounded shower. If that wasn’t enough to make you want to pack your bags for a relaxed vacation, or staycation, I most certainly assure that there’s more to look forward to for your absolute convenience.

The utmost luxury, in my opinion, is being able to relish in a space that is adaptable, and accommodating to a variety of people. In addition to the hotel’s overwhelmingly flawless guest service from the staff, Here’s what the King Deluxe has to offer to:

The Guest Who Stays Working:

For the guests who prefer to work while they wallow in luxury, the king deluxe holds a good amount of charging stations. In room printers are available upon request, and the wifi usage is complimentary. For high speed internet, an additional fee is required, but the amounts are not irregular. Staying at hotels, most will agree with me when I say it’s typically difficult to work in a hotel room due to the lack of space designed to inspire the possibility. The Four Seasons features a wooden table big enough to accommodate laptops, books, and overall comfortable space to get it all done.

The Guest Who Enjoys Room Service:

For the guests who enjoy variety in their food selection, and enjoy the convenience of not having to make any reservations that require leaving the room, I can assure you there’s nothing to worry about. In addition to the well curated bar, the Nespresso coffee maker, Bodum tea kettle, and wide range of light snacks in the room, it should please you to know that the hotel prioritizes in room dining as well. The breakfast meals are especially delicious, and the extensive menu is served all day, and night. So, dial up, and get to eating. As a matter of fact, don’t dial up, order it on the services iPad in the room.

The Guest Who Wants To Be Entertained At All Costs:

The entertainment curation Four Seasons has decorated the King Deluxe with is more than impressive. Here’s what guests can look forward to:

  • In-mirror TV in the bathrooms

  • Bose Stereo System

  • 55 Inch Ultra HD TV with cable/satellite stations

  • Playstations and Xbox’s are available upon request

In addition to the listed technology advances, guests can also enjoy complimentary daily, and international newspapers.

The Guest Who Just Wants To Relax:

For the guests who just want to relax, I have one thing to say: Put on your thick Terry robe (or not), sit back, and enjoy comfort at its finest. The hotel gives its guests the choice of customizing their own beds as it pertains to plush, and mattress toppers. Because of my job, I am able to travel and experience a wide range of hotels, and I must say the Four Seasons stands out. Where else could you request hypoallergenic, and orthopedic bedding? I still daydream about swimming in between its warm, and snuggly pillows, and duvet.
