The Equinox Hotel Hudson Yards is a beautiful hotel located in the heart of the Hudson Yards neighborhood in New York. It is the first hotel created by Equinox Hotels, a brand that is well-known for its high-end fitness clubs. This place offers luxurious rooms for guests, an Equinox Hotels fitness club, a spa group, and many more amenities that are perfect for both business and leisure travelers.
I would also add that the front desk is generally pleasant. I stayed at the Hudson Yards location this January and I was gifted a free bottle of Champagne and dessert in my room plus a free limo ride to the restaurant that evening. That's 5-star service - looking at the detail in order to get customers to continue to stay with your hotel in the long term.

Additionally, upon checking out I left my business MasterCard at the front desk and they immediately called me while I was still in the nearby area to come back to pick it up. Amazing stay!
The Equinox Hotel Hudson Yards is super located, with easy access to nearby cultural institutions, green spaces, and Times Square. It is also near Penn Station, making it a great location for business travel. For me, the unusual part was the fact that Pendry Manhattan West was just 2 minutes away from the Equinox Hotel New York. I was advised by the front desk that the owners of this hotel created equinox hotels for those who rest and play as hard as they work.
The rooms at Equinox Hotel Hudson Yards are spacious and well-appointed, with blackout curtains, blackout blinds, and yoga mats provided for guests. The room concept is designed to make guests feel comfortable and relaxed during their stay. The hotel also provides gym clothes for guests who want to work out in the fitness center. This was something that I definitely took advantage of.
