Spa Week – The best NYC Spa Services for $50

Spa Week NYC - Great Jones Spa

October 16-23, 2017; Reservations open Sept 19th

Hundreds of top spas around the city offer treatments for $50. Facials, massages, laser hair removal and more. My favorite spa is Great Jones (at left), because of their amazing water lounge, steam and sauna, however, they no longer have the best spa week deals. Another great spa that partakes in Spa Week is Elizabeth Arden. See Spa Week for details.
