Soon-to-open Equinox Hotel expected to set new benchmark for wellness

by Andrew Manns | 28 Mar 2019
Equinox is uniquely positioned to define an emerging category that is disrupting the entire industry.
– Chris Norton, CEO at Equinox Hotels

Lifestyle company Equinox has announced that its first short-stay hospitality venture – the long-gestating Equinox Hotel at 35 Hudson Yards – will throw open its doors in June.

The innovative project, which has been making waves since it was first announced in 2016, will feature an array of health-centric offerings, such as rooms with amenities devised to increase sleep wellness, and private fitness sessions led by professional trainers and nutritionists.

The 212-key flagship will also boast a 60,000 sq ft (5,574 sq m) gym, indoor and outdoor pools, a 27,000 sq ft spa, a SoulCycle, and a gourmet restaurant.

Spa treatments will range from traditional bodywork and massage to novel options like cryotherapy and quantum harmonics services.

New York-based architecture firm Rockwell Group was in charge of the hotel's interior design, while landscaping office Ken Smith Workshop crafted its exterior spaces.

Joyce Wang, who designed interiors at Equinox, St James venue in 2017, planned the site's signature fitness centre.

In a statement, Chris Norton, CEO at Equinox Hotels, said: "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's global portfolio currently includes over 90 properties across the US, UK, and Canada.

The company is scheduled to launch additional hotels in Los Angeles, Santa Clara, Seattle, Chicago, and Houston over the next four years.
