after a week of working around the clock- i had no choice but to treat myself to a peeling and massage. I must admit that I didn't want to go to bliss because from the outside it looked cheap with it's blue decor. After I walked into the waiting room I felt I might be lucky. Charlotte was so professional... More

It is just not what it used to be. It used to be that you walked in and were immediately greeted by staff...now, not so much. I also always found them to be very organized. Last time I went, I checked in two hours before my treatment to enjoy the amenities. Once it came time for my appointment, I found... More

I knew on my trip to NYC that I wanted to book a facial at Bliss because I had heard such good things. I was really looking forward to it, until my esthetician started "nickel-and-diming" me. Saying things like I think you could use the collagen mask and that'll be $20 more. And also you seem tired around your eyes,... More

This used to be "the place to go", especially for waxing. Today, I brought my daughter in for a bikini wax and although the technician was nice and the service was fine, the facilities left much to be desired. It used to be you went upstairs to the main spa to have a procedure like a waxing done. However, they... More

So... I was looking to destress and get a much needed massage, and I decided to indulge with a massage and sauna at Bliss. I wanted to find a place that felt just right. Read the reviews (some not so great) and am so glad I decided to give it a try. It was absolutely wonderful... from the steam sauna... More

Bliss 49 spa location is my favorite. The ladies are great here, always very nice and they know their skincare! Highly recommend for facials. I love the smell of everything in the spa. I always get the collagen mask add on, it's amazing. They have the best little brownies in the women's waiting lounge!! I visit the city every other... More

Having been to the spa a couple of days prior, I booked in for a facial. After checking in, I was put outside the reception area in a cold area without the offer to change into a robe or relax in the lounge before my treatment. Fifteen minutes after my appointment time, I was collected, asked why I wasn't in... More

I found myself in NYC heading on vacation and needed a last minute brazilian wax! I was in and out in 20 minutes. Customer service was also very friendly

This spa is an amazing gem and helps make this W hotel so Phenomenal! It's so clean, quiet and the staff are amazing. It's open until 10 so plenty of time for steaming. A must go!

While the treatments are always excellent, the facilities are just not being maintained. The steam room has been out of service for months and multiple lockers are always broken. Needs some TLC.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
