We received complimentary services and/or compensation for our visit and review, however the opinions, thoughts, and amazing photos are all our own.
The Waldolf Astoria has reputation behind its name that rivals any other hotel in the world for the best in luxury and elegance. We were not disappointed as we took the elevators up to the 19th floor in the lavish hotel on and were immediately dropped off in heaven. Since 1828, the name “Guerlain” has been synonymous with luxurious pampering. A tradition of service unlike any other, the renowned Waldorf Astoria combines luxurious amenities and services with service of royalty. The Guerlain Spa offers everything from a simple eyebrow wax to an 80-minute, four-hand massage. the services are designed to restore health, beauty and balance.
No expense has been spared at this 14,000 sq. ft. world class spa, where we were welcomed at reception with slippers and offered us a choice of scents for our room. After that we were led to locker rooms, complete with steam room, saunas, showers and a fitness center. Next, we were whisked away to our own treatment suite to enjoy our couples massage. The tables were comfortable and heated blankets kept us cozy until the massage began. Both of our massages were amazing, they use just the right amount of pressure and ask if they should adjust more or less.
After the treatment there is a private bathroom inside the treatment suite where you can freshen up before heading out, equipped with dual rain shower-heads and private steam room. The pampering doesn’t end with the treatments — each suite is stocked with extras, like Salvatore Ferragamo hair products and Guerlain’s signature perfumes and beauty essentials.
What luxury experience is complete without champagne and decadent truffles?
They also offer an option of in-suite treatments if you are staying at the hotel. We saw that the signature services including the “Milk, Haute Honey and Rooftop Herbs” mani/pedi with ingredients from the hotel’s rooftop garden and “Urban Island Escape” full-body treatment (featuring a warm coconut-honey toning body mask, exfoliating sugar glow scrub and rejuvenating massage followed by a rain shower rinse) sounded amazing as well, we will have to go back for that.
The Guerlain Spa offers so many treatment options, we see a few return trips in our near future. If you are in NYC or visiting, head over for a day of relaxation that you will never forget!
