“Not bad, not amazing either.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

I stayed here for 4 nights with my family over the Christmas period. I wasn't disappointed but I wasn't impressed with the hotel. It seemed to lack atmosphere, and was a bit dull.

Aside from that, the staff made up for this by being so incredibly helpful. Being greeted by name and welcomed upon arrival each time and remembering the little things are all small touches that made the stay great.

My family and I stayed at this wonderful hotel in late June. Our suite was spacious and well furnished. The most exceptional factor of our visit however was the superb personal service we received. Upon returning one evening from the theater with our grandchild and her cousin we were welcomed back to our suite with the original cast CD of Les Miserables playing on our in room CD. Ronald and Maria of the front desk had sent 2 CD's; one for each of the girls as a remembrance of our Broadway theater visit. Additionally, Robinson at the front desk and all of those at the concierge desk promptly and courteously helped with any question or request. Al, our doorman was helpful too. The list could go on and on.............We will return to the Ritz Carlton on Central Park on our next visit to the city.

Stayed here for 7 nights. Top notch room with stunning views of Central Park. Service outstanding , nothing was too much trouble. Beats some of the other high profile hotels hands down. The location is perfect.

Room Tip: Get a suite with a view of Central Park

Just came back after a 3 night stay and the hotel staff was superb. The staff was the most attentive and accommodating of any hotel that we've stayed at. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was completely silent. The room was spacious with 2 closets. Only complaint is the charge for wifi. It should be included for the price of the rooms.

Had an amazing experience of first class personalized service at this ritz over the weekend. Everything from dinner reservations, to a personal horse and carriage ride , help with any and all arrangements for special event Can't say enough about the personal touches that we experienced during our stay. The concierge Brian and his whole staff went above and beyond. We have stayed at about a half dozen Ritz Carlton's and the one is Central Park is by FAR the most personalized experience we have ever had. A MUST stay when in New York

I've stayed at or otherwise visited numerous luxury hotels in NYC, and the Ritz ranks among the best in the city. The location is ideal for tourists (and not bad for business in Midtown). The service is excellent. If you are celebrating a special occasion, make sure to let the staff know and they will not disappoint you. The lounge and dinning room are very comfortable and well decorated. My recommendation would be to take a room with a view of the park. Otherwise, the premium price really isn't worth it.

Weekend getaway with hubby. Great location. We took full advantage of being right across the street from Central Park for our morning excersice - amazing sights! Service was right on par with The Ritz-Carlton. Housekeeper was so sweet and attentive! Definitely look forward to returning, maybe we'll bring the kids next time :)

Room Tip: Park view is the way to go! Pay the higher rate...it is worth it!
