we traveled with kids 4 and 7 and we were extremely happy
we decided for the Ritz because of the Statue of Liberty view with a telescope in the room! kids had a lot of fun with that.
excellent position especially if you want to visit the Statue. you will get quick to the ferry and back.
also close to subway lines 1,4,5 which basically takes you to upper Manhattan in 20 min a lot faster than taxi.
very friendly with the kids. have kids menu. always provided an extra for the kids at the restaurant.
cookies at night for kids plus activity book and a small plush toy.
room itself is medium to large in size. for NYC is enormous, if compared to older hotels.
the bathroom however is magnificent for NYC standards - large, shower and full bath and lot of space; hard to beat that in NYc
parking is extra 60 or 70 for SUV per night and every time you pull the car out another 70 is charged
no free wifi apart from lobby
