Woodhouse Day Spa to Open Inside Hoboken’s W Hotel

Written by:

The W Hotel in Hoboken is about to get all the more luxurious, as the Woodhouse Day Spa is moving into the River Street hotel’s amenity space at 225 River Street — where the former Bliss Spa was located.

Associate broker Blake Shanaphy of Jones Lang LaSalle real estate made the announcement Sunday on LinkedIn. Shanaphy wrote, “The Woodhouse Day Spa has committed to a long term deal with my clients at Ironstate Development Company and will join our W Hotel amenity space, formerly the ‘Bliss Spa’ located at 225 River Street, as the new replacement spa tenant for the W project.”

The amenity space at the W Hotel has been vacant for about three months since Bliss Spa closed, but before Woodhouse can move in, the space will undergo a small renovation.

Shanaphy added, “Woodhouse plans to open for business after a brief rebranding of the two-level 6,000 [square foot] space, serving both the W’s guests and the general public looking to schedule an appointment.” The deal was in collaboration with the W Hotel, Newmark Knight Frank, and Ironstate Development Company.

You may recall that Bliss Spa closed its doors back in November 2019 after several years of operating out of The W. Prior to closing, Bliss Spa removed its nail services from its offerings and transformed the nail salon area of the spa into a lounge.

In the years leading up to the closure, Bliss Spa — known for its zen room, delicious brownies, and of course, its waxing services — had closed several brick-and-mortar locations including Atlanta, Beverly Hills, San Francisco, Scottsdale, and West Hollywood.

The new spa’s services will most likely bring a coveted nail service back to the W Hotel. Since two of Woodhouse Day Spa’s Signature Services are nail services — the Signature Manicure or “Hand Retreat” and the Signature Seaweed Leaf Pedicure — chances of the renovation adding a nail salon area back to the space seem promising.

Woodhouse offers other services, too, including the Signature Minkyti Facial, Four-Handed Massage, and something called the Woodhouse Escape — a 110-minute spa experience that seeks to align body, mind, and spirit with dry brushing, therapeutic stone massage, neck and shoulder massage, acupressure, and a scalp, hand and arm massage. A reflexology session ends the treatment. Heaven.

Woodhouse also offers sleep treatments, full-body treatments, waxings, and more. So, you can enjoy an all-day spa experience that relaxes and rejuvenates you, no matter what kind of spa treatment you’re looking for. Fingers crossed they keep the sauna that Bliss had.

Other Woodhouse Day Spa locations in New Jersey include Montclair, Summit, and Red Bank. We’ll share more details about the opening as they come in.
