Spy skyscrapers, sip cocktails or sequester yourself away in Manhattan, Brooklyn and beyond at these places to stay with private jacuzzis.

Hot tubs, jacuzzis, whirlpool spa tubs… whatever you want to call them, they epitomize indulgence, relaxation and even a little decadence. And don’t forget the health benefits, even the ability to fall asleep a little quicker, too. And in the City That Never Sleeps, there’s no shortage of hotels offering them. So, whether it’s unwinding before a wellness treatment or setting the romantic scene in your suite, here’s where you can find the best of New York’s bubbling bathtubs.

1. The William Vale

Occupying a striking slab of contemporary architecture, this 21st-century Brooklyn landmark sits right on the border between the hipster neighborhoods of Williamsburg and Greenpoint. There’s an elevated pool terrace – the largest outdoor pool of any New York hotel – lined with cushioned loungers and daybeds. For private soaking, a luxury duplex suite has an open-air hot tub with some seriously sexy views of the Manhattan skyline.

2. Dream Downtown

With its shimmering ocean liner-inspired façade dotted with portholes, it doesn’t take much to see that Dream Downtown does things differently from most other hotels. A beach club-style terrace features a snazzy glass-bottomed pool, while by night the penthouse bar-lounge gets things in full swing. For those looking to continue the party, the Presidential Suite features an al fresco hot tub big enough for friends.

3. The Iroquois

For the timeless, quintessentially New York vibe, a stay at the Iroquois – right in the heart of Midtown Manhattan – really delivers. A swish, wood-paneled cocktail bar serves expertly mixed concoctions, while a jacuzzi tub and spa-quality bath products await up in your suite. Heated bathroom floors also keep toes toasty while you pad around in plush Frette robes. You can order in-room spa treatments, plus there’s a 24-hour fitness room with a Finnish sauna at your disposal.

4. Casa Times Square

Just a couple of blocks from the electric buzz of iconic Times Square is a garden in the sky that feels far removed. This slice of elevated urban tranquility comes with a rectangle of real lawn, a cocktail bar and – you guessed it – a spa tub with views of the surrounding skyscrapers. You’re even welcome to bring your own drinks and picnic up on the grass, or just soak up the sun on a padded chaise.

5. The Greenwich

Set in the centre of the Tribeca district, this Robert De Niro-owned hotel boasts surely one of Manhattan’s most serene spas. The hotel’s subterranean lantern-lit Shibui Spa features a 250-year-old bamboo farmhouse imported from Japan, together with traditional Japanese soaking tubs that take the bathing experience to the next level. Deep soaking tubs can also be found in many of the rooms, and in-room spa treatments are an option, too.

6. Yotel New York

From the brand that brought you conveyor-belt sushi, the main USP of this Hell’s Kitchen hotel is its budget-friendly, cabin-sized accommodation. That said, upgrade to one of the roomier first-class king suites and you can enjoy a sunny terrace with hot tub bubbles. Yotel also has one of the largest outdoor hotel terraces in New York and, if you’re interested, the world’s first robotic luggage concierge.
