At Four Seasons NY you’ll find the highest hotel suite in a city known for its legendary skyscrapers, the opulent, one-of-a-kind Ty Warner Penthouse suite in New York soars 800 feet (244 metres) above the street. Created by visionary architects I. M. Pei and Peter Marino, the suite was seven years and USD 50 million in the making and offers incredible 360-degree views.
From your castle in the clouds, find inspiration in the breathtaking, unobstructed vista of one of the world’s finest cities. Four glass balconies are set on a diagonal to the north-south, east-west grid of Manhattan, capturing distinctive views. Oversized, single-paned windows and glass railings ensure that your sight line is uninterrupted.
Every element, from the textiles to the furniture to the distinctive artwork, has been specially commissioned from internationally renowned artisans and craftspeople to create a sensory experience like no other.
The finest-quality finishes are employed at every level, from soft calfskin leather walls in the dressing room and semi-precious stones in the Zen room waterfall to rich walnut, afrormosia and Mexican sycamore wood in the spa room and Mexican travertine stone floors in the breakfast room.
This multi-room, 4,300-square-foot (400-square-metre) New York penthouse offers generous and gracious proportions, including cathedral ceilings, diamond skylights and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Sculpture, hand-stamped Venetian velvet, Thai silk with 22-carat gold threads and custom-designed furniture, each a piece of art in its own right, accent the room. The spa room can easily be converted into a second bedroom, if required.
