Spa at Mandarin Oriental
This lavish (and pricey) hotel spa has stellar service and attention to details, like fresh orchids in the treatment rooms. To make the most of it, go ahead of time to enjoy amenities like the “Heat Experience” rooms for men and women and great views.
Ohm Spa is a serene oasis that allows its massage therapists to customize a treatment and express their own individual style. I had an incredible massage here, and prices are reasonable. It’s a true gem, but it’s not a place to hang.
Cornelia Day Resort
This lives up to its name of a “day resort”, with a rooftop garden where you can lounge in the sun and order from the elegant spa cafe menu. It’s also the only spa in New York City to offer watsu.
Babor at Takashimaya
This is an exquisite little spa tucked away on the 6th floor of Takashimaya, the luxury Japanese department store.

This is the original Bliss location started by Marcia Kilgore in the mid-90s. It’s sleek and modern, but some customers think they push products a little too much during facials.
