Visit City Sun Tanning and you'll quickly fall in love with this stylish new ground floor salon, located right off Union Square. City Sun has tanning beds, stand-ups and spray tanning to meet every budget in single and series sessions and membership plans.
All of our equipment is first class. We offer the only P90 in NYC, which is the best tanning bed in the world. It produces a rich, golden tan in open-air comfort and is a true work of art. The AutoBronzer spray tanner, again the only one in NYC, is miles beyond other salons' old school spray booths and delivers a streak-free, natural-looking tan in under a minute.
With friendly service, complimentary bottled water, chilled scented towels for apres-tan and a remote control music system in each bed (including a beach sounds channel) make a visit to our salon the highlight of your day.

Tanning Snobs! – My wonderful boyfriend bought me a package for Valentine's - paid for the best sun beds they had, almost $200. Loved it! Staff was great, the beds were the best I had ever used, and the scented towels made you feel so refreshed afterwards. When I decided to purchase my own package when the first ended, I could only afford the basic sessions. Immediately, I was treated like a second class citizen. No more escorts to the tanning rooms, they yelled my room number across the counter, when I asked a question or tried to inform them of a broken fan, the staff looked at me like I had three heads. I was so glad when my last tanning session was up. When the girl behind the counter tried to get me to buy another package, it was so gratifying to say, "No thank you, I'll be taking my business elsewhere."
"Buy One Get One" Special ROCKS! – City Sun Tanning is within walking distance from the East Village and nearest to Union Square. The staff are informative and willing to answer any questions about packages, beds, lotions, etc. I thought the damp cloth with fresh lemon fragrant was a great addition to any previous tanning salon I had been to.
Friendly employees – I had such a great experience with one of the employees named Kenny. Long story short- he refunded me money (that may have been due to an error on my part) no questions asked. Very friendly and extremely polite. I looked on the website to see if there was a place to write in about my very positive experience, but only found an email. I received a reply from the owners of the salon the next day- one of the nicest, kindest responses. I was thrilled and hope that with this feedback- they can generate more business (although it doesn't sound like they're hurting for customers)! Please go here.. I will continue to talk about this experience to people I know.
Found my new tanning home – I just signed up for an unlimited membership, having switched from my old tanning salon and being recommended this place as the best. The service was great - Kenny answered my questions and even gave me the student discount after seeing I was holding an id. I didnt even know it was offered there so that was really nice. I was able to tan on my first day after signing up and was really impressed by the machines. The place is very clean, spa-like, and I'm definitely looking forward to being a member there.
Best Tanning Salon in America! – I have lived in LA, New York and Dallas and have never found a tanning salon that compares with City Sun. The high pressure bed is amazing! Their beds do not give a fake tan look, but a golden "real sun" look. I highly recommend this place not only for the quality of the equipment, but also for the friendly service.
My new Tanning Home – I never write reviews, but I felt compelled to here (everyone has been asking me where I went !!)
I'm from Florida and love to rock a glowing tan, I'm so glad I've found a Happy place to tan (energy is so important)
Employees were nice and smiling (which after a long day was nice). The form was like taking a test but I guess that is for safety reasons. The waiver is on the BACK of what you sign, they don't tell you that.
I love the wet towels that smell DIVINE! (don't forget to grab one when you walk to your room).
Clean and little mints ...its my escape to the beach!
Pitfall - Sometimes there isn't anyone at the front and the line piles up, when everyone checks in they accompany that person to their tanning room. I just have to TRY to go at less traffic times.
Best Tan in Manhattan – I love this place! Seriously, I would not even think of tanning anywhere else. Everyone that walks through the door is greeted with a friendly face and great personality. I love the staff there! Gabi and Kenny are so helpful! They are always able to make suggestions on lotions and beds. The store is very clean, welcoming, and has a lot of options for people who just want to get a tan before going to the beach or anyone tanning year round. I've been a client for over a year and never have had a bad experience.
City Sun rocks! Great tans – City Sun is in a great location (right near Union Square) and is super clean. My tan came out very even and looks great. I highly recommend this place!
OK tan; crappy policy – City Sun talks you into, and takes your money for, tanning packages, and if you don't use the package within a certain time frame it expires. So what happens if you can't tan within the time frame (tanning isn't at the top of my priority list, that would be reserved for things like working for a living), ultimately, they take your money and never provide you with the service. Their pitiful excuse was that they had books to close . . . absolutely irrelevant. They received the money, they took that money into income when received--what difference does it make when you use the facilities? They should at least assign a cash value to the service so that if rates jump up dramatically (and they haven't) you get the benefit of the value you have already paid to apply to current services. I will not use their services again.
Great first experience – Never tried the tanning thing before. I googled "best new york tanning" on a whim and found City Sun via this website. They gave me a little bit of a ribbing when I asked a ton of lame questions, but were cool about it and very informative.
I walked out having spent a bit more than what I was expecting, but the experience was very high-end and spa-like, and the results were good so I had no regrets. I look forward to going back and using the rest of my sessions.
