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!

This is a hotel in a great location with immediate access to Central park. The hotel reception area is small with only a couple of chairs available. The restaurant (newly reopened?) is rather small for such a hotel and their breakfast is both overpriced and mediocre. Fortunately the rooms are well appointed with an excellent bed and good amenities, some rooms have a beautiful view on the park while others face a narrow inner courtyard with no privacy if the shades are opened. Overall, I have seen better hotels and this one would never garner 5* in the middle east. But of course NY is special and where else could you get such a wonderful location. Read less

A luxury hotel. Even the most basic room is well equipped with a very comfy bed and bathroom with separate shower. The club lounge is well stocked and worth every penny. Rooms could be improved with their own coffee machines but hard to fault

We went for a list minute getaway just as a couple without the kids. The room was amazing (upgraded to a king bed & sitting room). The view of central park was amazing. The club lounge had a beautiful view & the service was also amazing. Everyone was so nice & proactive anticipating needs without being intrusive. We even got last minute reservations to amazing restaurants via the concierge. Felix (concierge) went out of his way to help us with anything we could possibly ask for. If you have a chance to go to the spa ->ask for Laura, who was an amazing massage therapist! Housekeeping was also amazing. We were in room 607. I slept in the first day until almost noon! My husband kept asking her to come back in an hour, when I got up & we went out, I apologized for keeping her waiting & she was so nice, saying you probably needed a good rest! Would definitely come again. Read less

We stayed at the Ritz Carlton Central Park with our daughter over Easter weekend and had one of the best hotel experiences we’ve ever had (and we routinely stay at five star properties). We were celebrating our daughter’s birthday and from start to finish, the hotel and concierge staff made sure she felt celebrated and special. Even the spa department took part in celebrating her birthday. From the moment we checked in, the hotel staff knew our names and went out of their way to make sure every part of our stay was not only perfect but absolutely unparalleled. The location is superb, rooms large and spacious, complimentary car service to the broadway plays is an added bonus, and the spa is divine. Special thanks to Ender and Andrea for making our stay one we will remember and cherish forever. Can’t wait to come back soon... very soon! Read less

This hotel is well located if you are interested in the opera, museums, theater, and shopping. It has been our first choice for six years. The concierge service is outstanding. They have recommended excellent restaurants that we had never thought of and scored some great theater tickets. The lounge level is very convenient for breakfast,… Read more
