Here's part of Susie's post:
Helping people get into deep sleep is part of the goal at Sphatika. I was told that almost 100 percent of the people who have this Royal Sphatika fall asleep during the treatment. But it is the restorative sleep that same night that really is impressive.
This is a day spa amidst many hotels in the area - some have spas and some don't. The Mandarin Oriental is right across the street, with the Trump International Hotel and the Ritz-Carlton Central Park nearby, among others. If the concierges in those hotels were smart, they would let their guests in on this secret, private, and very unusual spa.
Let's see. Maybe the concierges at these hotels are being smart. They each have their own full-service spa. (Speaking of which, for a second we lapsed into ignorance and thought the Ritz-Carlton Central spa was connected to the famous Clinique La Prairie in Switzerland. Oops. Not.) As for hotels referring guests to the competition, why would they? Does Macy's tell Bloomingdale's? That is the concierge's dilemma.
