The hotel

The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park welcomes guests with a luxurious, but warm atmosphere befitting one of the world's most impressive destinations. Exquisite details including works of floral art by Jane Packer create a residential air complemented by glorious views of Central Park. The 1930s landmark building has been redesigned into a chic yet classic hotel, with contemporary rooms, a grand restaurant, and the only northeastern spa by Switzerland's La Prairie. Service is of the highest standard; you can even choose from a bath menu and let your 'bath butler' run it for you!

My daughter has always dreamed of seeing the macys thanksgiving day parade. Staying the Ritz Carlton for thanksgiving was the best decision. The location was absolutely perfect and we were able to have front row seats of the parade right outside the hotel. Having a hotel room directly over central park was the icing on the cake!

Just returned home from our stay at the Ritz Carlton Central Park. Everything was wonderful from the moment we walked in the door to the moment we left. Everyone was out going and helpful. Club Lounge ladies and gentlemen were so helpful. I can’t name them all but just a few: Levar, Celso, Kelly, Charles and even more, couldn’t have done more for my husband and me. Only regret is that financially it will be awhile before we can return but return we will due to the impeccable service always given with a smile. Read less

I got up early and strolled across the street to Central Park for a morning stroll...dreamy...came back asked the concierge about breakfast places. He suggested Sarabeth’s a few doors down. I had always wanted to brunch there. He called down and put us on the list. We went down and they were true to their 15 min wait although there were dozens of people waiting. thank you thank you thank you for such an extraordinary experience. Read less

Thank you so much to Thomas, who was so accommodating and made us feel so welcome upon our check in. Best hotel to stay when in New York City! Clean good-size modern room, great location (very close to subway station and nice area) and most of all, friendly staff!

Just love this place, Club Lounge is my favourite amazing food, opulent, Lazar makes this place in my opinion, just a good all round New Yorker who makes such an effort with everyone making it a fun experience. Gym is great, door man who’s name escapes me knows everything about this City.
