“excellent choice for lower manhattan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

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

Room Tip: statue of libery view with a telescope

Spent the week-end after the 4th of July, got a great rate and enjoyed the hotel and the area. It was perfect. Could not have asked for a better front desk experience, a better concierge( Carlos Leon was superb), a better room, or a better view. It was really hot outside, so we took full advantage of room service and were not disappointed. However, I was disappointed that the outside deck is no longer available to hotel guest(only for private parties), it should be open when there is no party...I'm saving up for a return visit. If you want to experience New York and stay in a area that has seen much pain, and has transformed that pain to beauty, then this is the place. They say that one man's fruit is another man's candy- but not at the Ritz...it's all candy...

Loved this Ritz! One of the nicest I have stayed in. Loved the location of Battery Park and feeling like you are in the city, but not so fast paced. The views of the Statue of Liberty are amazing. Concierge was very helpful. Beds very comfortable, rooms very clean. Will stay here again.

Room Tip: Upgrade to Statue of Liberty views

This hotel is in a very cool location, despite extensive construction just outside the property.
The staff was very nice in general.
They could use some tech upgrades in the rooms, i.e. usb ports, and internet access that is reliable. The Wi-fi was out for two days.
This hotel has a very cool looking rooftop terrace that they don't use. The restaurant is nice, but ordinary.
On the morning of our check-out, they lost the keys to the car we were traveling in. They did get us a driver however.

We booked a last minute room at the Ritz a couple of weeks ago. We did upgrade to the Statue of Liberty view and it was worth it, my kid loved the telescope.

I'm marriott gold but had never stayed in ritz before. For the price we paid, I thought it was going to be some incredible experience. It was a hotel that was more friendly than typical marriotts but I didn't feel like I was in the lap of luxury at all. In fact, we had asked for something when a staff member was passing by and it never arrived.

We would probably go back just for the location itself but only if it was a good last minute rate again.

Stayed here in Aug from 16-22 Aug. Great location. But as a recurring guest at many of the ritz carlton's other hotels, this property disappoints in terms of service and amenities in the room. Service was lackluster generally and concierge was more forced than forthcoming. I understand prices in NYC are high but that should correspond with good service. Clearly, I expected more but was left with no more words to say. Oh yes, Wendy at the Club Lounge was the best, the friendliest and genuine with her smiles. Maybe the rest of the staff could take a leaf out of her book.

Easily one of my favorite hotels in NYC. Great location and amazing views of Lady Liberty. I highly recommend the the "liberty" rooms to anybody travelling for the first time to NY. Rooms are super comfy and room service very efficient despite being a big place. Great gym too.

Room Tip: Definitely the "liberty" rooms for amazing views
