I went there with my bf and wee hesitated between going at the Ritz, the Andaz and the Langdam. The hotel isn't a bad one, obviously, but cost wise when we compared it with others the Ritz wasn't worth the price. Big bed and lot of pillows Shower: too small and oldish water distribution Good location in front of central... More

Thank you for being our guest and for your comments on Trip Advisor. Yes our hotel does have a spectacular location in front of Central Park - perhaps the best location in the city - a block from fifth avenue / Lincoln Center - walking distance to the theater district and all midtown has to offer..... The hotel is also... More

Business trip with toddler along for the ride. Booked a suite overlooking the park. Gorgeous and expansive views but intolerable street noise for types who need a more hushed daytime experience. Get a room at the back of the hotel if you prize quiet. Fantastic service, though, and my wish to relocate was met with a determined diligence to make... More

Thank you so much for staying with us and for your review on Trip Advisor. I appreciate your comments and candor. I am sorry that the noise from the street performers disturbed you during the day. We are actually working with the Neighborhood district to have the noise level monitored as we are zoned for residential which is considered a... More

My husband and I just finished three nights at the Ritz Carlton celebrating both of our birthdays and it was wonderful. Cassidy Davis (Guest Recognition Coordinator) had cake delivered to our room which was a wonderful surprise. She and Daniel Perez also helped with info on Tom Ford cosmetic services, hair styling and a spa booking before our arrival which... More

My daughter and I stayed for several nights and the entire experience was faultless. From check-in to check-out each and every staff member was friendly, helpful and professional. We had a gorgeous room overlooking Central Park (up on the 19th floor). We could have spent the entire time looking at the view....but the location is ideal for exploring the shops,... More

Celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary, we were treated like royalty at the Ritz Carlton Central Park. One of the best service experiences and friendliest hotel staff ever! When we walked in to the hotel, we were immediately greeted by our last name. We were given a great room overlooking the park with a complimentary bottle of wine, warm greeting and... More

This is a most beautiful hotel in a superb location. Our rooms were traditionally furnished with high quality linens and very comfortable beds. Bathrooms were large and luxurious. A real plus for the hotel is the quality of most of its staff, particularly the doormen and concierge, who made us feel welcome and very special! So why only 4 stars?... More

Thank you for staying with us Recently and for your comments posted to Trip Advisor. I am so sorry that we were not able to accommodate your request for rooms close to one another.

We thought we would spoil ourselves for this visit to New York and book the Ritz and we have not been disappointed with the stay we've had. After a day of travelling and long queues at JFK we arrived at the Ritz Friday evening tired to be warmly welcomed and made to feel special from the off-set. We were upgraded... More

Lovely hotel but could be more warming and inviting. Maids were great and turn down service is fab. But need more doorman available and when asked for a cab it took ages and I just got my own, so that was annoying but overall nice. The tea is much better in London it feels like your in the foyer and... More

Thank you for being our guest and for writing a review of your experience. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry that you didn't like the tea sandwiches - I would be happy to speak with you about your tea experience. I just had tea at The Ritz in London so perhaps we could compare notes.... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
