To help the body and mind ease the stress of a busy day spent exploring the city, 11 Howard offers innovative infrared sauna experiences by HigherDOSE. Within the same session you will be able to detox your mind and body, get a workout without actually working out, feel euphoric, get beautified, and feel overall rejuvenated. Healing chakra light therapy is fused with your choice of music and the feel of traditional saunas, using infrared light to increase the body’s natural production of dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, and endorphins – all the “feel good” elements needed to create a truly natural high and reduce/ reverse the aging process.

Grab a skateboard and forget the cab, because hotel guests have access to complimentary self-power Boosted Boards. If you’ve never attempted riding a skateboard have no fear because settings range from beginner to professional, with multiple ride modes intended to make even beginners feel comfortable regardless of skill level. These boards have enough power to climb a 25-degree slope, flawlessly execute hill, and have a braking system that allows riders to confidently come to a full stop even while turning or on a downhill descent.

Grab a glass or two of complimentary wine at The Library

This NYC hotspot is always bustling and it couldn’t be in a more convenient location for hotel guests since it’s the hotel’s on-site lounge. The dynamic setting at The Blonde leaves not much to wonder about how it became a leading nightclub, bar, and lounge in NYC since it’s opening. Enjoy delicious cocktails and apps while bathing in the ambiance that makes The Blonde stand out from the rest.
