The decor at W Salon and Spa—curled chandeliers, furniture upholstered with monochrome prints, and antique-looking wooden bureaus at each styling station—evokes an Enlightenment-era salon steeped in serenity. The literary setting is appropriate since the staff views the venue as a sanctum for the self, where guests can sink into relaxed introspection. With a team that specializes in a number of fields, the spa addresses a sweeping spectrum of services to facilitate such pampered meditation.
A licensed cosmetologist primps complexions with makeup applications and eyelash extensions, and a certified massage therapist calls upon five modalities to put physiques at ease more effectively than a soothing impression of Morgan Freeman narrating a documentary about sloths. Hair- and skincare treatments benefit from Unite and Sonya Dakar products, respectively.
On the spa's medical side, technicians combat wrinkles with Botox injections and curtail unwanted hair growth with carefully aimed laser treatments. The beauticians also host spa parties, accommodating wedding groups and celebrations for expectant mothers as well as birthdays.
