The much-anticipated Equinox Hotel in Hudson Yards, NY, is open. It includes 212 rooms, including 48 suites, as well as the largest-ever-built 60,000-sq.-ft. Equinox Fitness Club, as well as E by Equinox, the brand’s most personalized portfolio offering. The hotel embodies the same holistic philosophy as Equinox Fitness Clubs, built to inspire a community of like-minded individuals and anchored by fitness and culture.
In line with a global vision for the brand, future Equinox Hotels are now confirmed for international gateway cities including Los Angeles; Santa Clara, CA; Seattle; Chicago and Houston, with several other sites under development.
“The philosophy, ‘It’s not fitness, it’s life’ has grounded Equinox and fueled a cultural movement for more than 25 years, and now we’re introducing Equinox Hotels as a true culmination of our brand promise,” said Harvey Spevak, executive chairman, managing partner, Equinox, in a statement. “Steeped with deep knowledge of how to cater 24/7 to the high-performance needs of the most discerning community, we are a company that has always seen the world differently and defined trends rather than following them. Everything we’ve done to this point has given us true license to enter hospitality and chart its future with a completely fresh, uniquely ‘Equinox’ experience and point of view.” Hudson Yards was selected as the site for the first Equinox Hotel as it is the new epicenter of culture, arts and culinary, he added.
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 saltwater pool, hot and cold plunge pools, an outdoor leisure pool and terrace with culinary concept from renowned restaurateur, Stephen Starr, as well as a SoulCycle on the ground floor. Following a belief that sleep is of the utmost importance, Equinox Hotels designed soundproofed rooms with a total-blackout window system.
