It is the ultimate sanctuary for your winter getaway. “The suite offers unparalleled views across the city and is the perfect backdrop for an elegant dinner with friends,” says Tara Cruz, senior spa director at Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown. Debuting in January, the Empire Suite Experience includes round-trip helicopter transfers from all three major airports, personal spa treatment for two, including a couple’s massage, as well as daily breakfast. $25,000, 27 Barclay St. Empire Suite high res
