The lobby is inviting with velvet couches and marble floors. Red Door Spa was also a presenting sponsor at Fashion Week's renowned Red Dress Collection charity show.
The new boutique carries a full selection of Elizabeth Arden skin care, fragrances, makeup and hair products.
After more than 70 years on the corner of 54th and Fifth, Red Door Spa has moved the massage tables. And while the new five-star spa is just blocks from the old digs, it's a world away from the original spot's stark surroundings.
Occupying the top two floors of the Ferragamo building, the fresh space boasts 18 candlelit treatment rooms, a library for relaxing before and after treatments and a beautiful marble-accented locker room where guests can lounge in plush robes with cups of herbal tea.
Among the new amenities are a shop stocked with Elizabeth Arden's cultishly adored products (we love the Good Night's Sleep cream), a penthouse café and a sprawling rooftop sundeck. The sleek hair salon, run by former Frédéric Fekkai stylist Zahir Ziani, offers top-notch blowouts, cuts and colors.
The best treatments on the updated spa menu are the Ultimate Arden Facial ($265), which includes a youth-bestowing collagen mask; the 50-minute Desert Hot Stone Massage ($160); and the Body Glow treatment ($70), which smoothes and hydrates skin with an olive-oil-and-salt scrub.
Our favorite upgrade, though, is the hidden side entrance: It's invaluable for making a discreet exit after those lactic-acid peels.
