The Guerlain Spa occupies 14,000 SF on the 19th floor of the 47-story Art Deco landmark Waldorf=Astoria Hotel in New York City. Originally designed by architects Schultz and Weaver in 1931, the property is now part of The Waldorf=Astoria Collection, Hilton Hotel's premiere – Most Luxurious Hotel Collection.
Featuring the Guerlain Paris product line, the spa offers a personalized experience affording guests their own “cocooned” treatment rooms & bathrooms. The public lounge acts as a multi-activity space with treatment space by day and event space by night. There are a total of 15 treatment rooms, including one couples’ suite, providing guests with tranquil surroundings.
The materials used—marble, mosaic tiles, and natural woods—create a quiet and light respite for those who visit. The design emphasizes a sense of urban chic within a classical envelope, reinterpreting the unique qualities of the renowned hotel and spa in a modern and sophisticated manner.
