We loved staying here for 6 days, the room is spacious, nicely decorated and very clean. The bed is super comfy, staff friendly, delicious food (although expensive). Location on Central Park is ideal for visiting the sights. Looking forward to returning!

We booked a room with a view, Central Park directly in front of us, with a binocular. We had 2 windows, one clean and able to look out, the other almost opaque ! Why ? The room 608 was across from the elevator but we did not hear any noise. The room and bathroom were spacious, and it had 3 closets, enough space to store away the luggage. The… Read more
We booked a room with a view, Central Park directly in front of us, with a binocular. We had 2 windows, one clean and able to look out, the other almost opaque ! Why ? The room 608 was across from the elevator but we did not hear any noise. The room and bathroom were spacious, and it had 3 closets, enough space to store away the luggage. The service from the reception and concierge as well as the porter were good. At breakfast time the service was slow and not very attentive at all, there is room to improve. The location is sensationell, in walking distance to the shopping, park and all major tourist spots. But is does have its price, attention. Read less

After many years my wife and I stayed at the Ritz Carlton again. It turned out to be a very good decision. The location is really nice, but the real asset of this hotel is the staff. We were treated nicely from the moment we stepped out of our taxi ( with a terrible driver - but that's another story) to the moment we stepped into the taxi after checking out. The lobby bar is really nice with a good staff, the room service staff is efficient and friendly and the same can be said for the housekeeping staff. The only one detail I did not really like is that they leave the housekeepers' carts in the hallways. That is not becoming of a hotel of this level (and price). Still, I feel comfortable recommending this hotel. Read less

The Ritz is always an excellent stay. My only frustration is that because it is a limited Marriott partner, it does not honor Marriotts’ most loyal customers with complementary upgrades, lounge access, and other amenities throughout the majority of the system. The rooms are comfortable and service top rate.

I ran the NYC Marathon this year so I decided to treat myself to a night at The Ritz before the run. Simply put, the service from the employees at The Ritz was absolutely perfect. I had previously emailed with some questions about the marathon. Upon checking in, the front desk staff engaged in conversation about the race I was even given an upgraded room due to Bonvoy status. Didn't even have to ask! They also said that they would like to leave a gift for me. I was pleasantly surprised to find a wonderful "recovery bag" in my room upon returning from dinner. I also needed an early breakfast which was delivered promptly to the room at the time I requested. I desparately wanted to be at ease before my race and the staff at the Ritz did everything within their power to make it so. For that, I thank you! Read less
