The room is big enough, the location is on the edge of Central Park, very good scenery from the room. It’s also really pleasant for morning jogging. Very professional and friendly front desk. There are many restaurants around the hotel and there is a huge food supermarket. The hotel facilities are a bit old, but still doable.

The Ritz Carlton Central Park really knows how to make guests feel welcome! Upon checking in, we were asked what our plans were and I mentioned it was my daughters birthday and we were planning to see Hamilton. Later that afternoon, we were brought a plate of chocolates and a card wishing my daughter a happy birthday. The following night, upon returning to the hotel after seeing Hamilton, we were surprised with a Hamilton book and another personalized card for my daughter. She was absolutely over the moon! Hotel room was clean, modern, and had a nice view of the park. We had consistent housekeeping, turn down service and water service. Definitely a top rate hotel! We have stayed at this ritz several times and will be back many more times!! Read less

The bar and restaurant surrounding the courtyard were beautiful at night, such a pleasant place to eat and drink. Great menu, excellent service with friendly attitude. Loved it here. Felt like coming home. Liked the atmosphere of restaurants better than St. Regis

We have stayed at this property several times over the years, and are pleased that it remains excellent. You can't beat the location and park views. The staff are very professional and helpful. My only complaint would be that our room service breakfast was fairly lackluster.

The hotel was nice, the room was clean and spacious for NYC, with a great view of Central Park. We were there for Valentine's Day night and wanted to celebrate our engagement there, plus our first date out away from our newborn baby. We loved the room and enjoyed the (way overpriced) drinks at Contour. We were surprised that, for a category 8 with a known name, their in-room dining food was so basic and dull and there were limited options for t.v. (especially no pay per view), so it wasn't very thrilling. But the worst part was our experience with check-out. The night before, I called the front desk for the opportunity for a later check-out and he gave me 2pm and I agreed. So my hubby and I planned our day accordingly to that time to leave. The next morning, I got called twice from the front desk wondering if we were extending our stay, to which I told them about our agreed 2pm check-out. Later, they called me and told me I had to check out in 30min, so we rushed out completely unprepared. If I had known there was no true availability for a later check-out, that would've been fine. The short notice that we needed to be out felt like I was another sheep in a herd that needed to shove out. Read less
