Lounge Area at the Red Door at The Chatwal

The venerable Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa, long a fixture on Fifth Avenue,  has recently opened a subterranean branch in the Theater District’s Chatwal hotel—perfectly situated for some pre- or post-matinee pampering. After donning a plush terry robe in a private dressing room, visitors can swim in a saltwater pool, relax under a massage therapist’s stress-melting touch, and/or experience an epidermis-enhancing treatment. The newest is the Oxygen Infusion Facial, a 70-minute service that includes a hand massage, collagen and eye serums, an antibacterial infrared wand, much swaddling in warm towels and, as a finale, a cool spray of pure oxygen onto the face that energizes the whole body.
