Healthy Living Goes Underground at The Le Parker Meridien
There is seemingly no end to wave of Hotel Fitness news these days! Today, we've got word of a cool complex, The Underground, at Le Parker Meridien in New York which encompasses a spa, fitness center, two salons and a healthy cafe.
Long known for its delicious Norma's restaurant, secret burger joint and rooftop swimming pool, surprisingly, Le Parker Meridien has never had its own spa--until now. Moonshine has just opened in the hotel's new Underground space. Yes, Moonshine where the dark, cave-like treatment rooms are named after Prohibition-era cocktails like Sidecar, Gimlet, Bee’s Knees, Rusty Nail, Stinger and Salty Dog.
But of course, the custom massage and facial treatments here don't pump toxins into you but rather, extract them out. Although, there is a shot of moonshine on offer before your treatments. Massages and facials (which use Tata Harper products) start at $120 for 60-minutes.
Yet that's not all that's new downstairs at the hotel. There's also the revamped, multi-level, 15,000 square foot gravity fitness center, a drybar hair salon that offers only blow-outs, the tenoverten nail salon with iPads at every manicure seat and the Petit Blue Dog Cafe, opening in April and which serves real, wholesome foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner along with smoothies, cold pressed juices and detoxifying grass shots.
With so much emphasis on hotel rooftops these days, perhaps Le Parker Meridien will be the ones to start off the hotel basement trend as the place to see and be seen? Or well, at least to get fit.
Room rates at the hotel start around $450 a night.
