“Perfect location, great hotel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I spent 4 nights at this hotel during Labor day week end. We had a room at the 15 floor with a beautiful view of Central park. Room size was OK ( but you are in NYC..), perfectly clean and very well kept.
Bathroom was small ( only one basin) and pretty outdated but immaculate. I liked the old fashion furniture as well as the decor of the lobby, the bar and restaurant. The executive lounge served good breakfast ( included) and the lady at the lounge reception was extremely friendly and helpful.
You can find better restaurant in NYC , but our dinner at the hotel restaurant , even if was not memorable....was fine ( a little bit overpriced...). At the end, great location, relatively small but clean room and impeccable service.

The location is perfect, the rooms are up to date and of the luxury you would expect for the cost -- unlike most NY high end hotels. Unlike the Pierre, and others, the bathroom has a fair amount of counter space and the water closet is separate from shower and sink. There is plenty is closet and luggage space for two travelers with a lot of clothes. The Conceirge Level is a great amenity, the servers remember you, have warmth but don't intrude and the views are great. I would recommend as the top option for a 5 star NY hotel. Book an upgraded room with a view of the park.

I took my mum to New York to celebrate her 50th birthday and was toying between the Ritz and the Plaza. I 100% made the right choice!! From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty, champagne on arrival to celebrate mum's birthday then a room with a Central Park view. We had a major delay getting in so we missed our table reservation at Roberts (highly recommended) the reception staff called Roberts and rearrange the table, took us there in a range rover for free and secured us the best table in the window!!! The rooms were incredible, massive very tasteful and comfortable! On mums birthday she got cards and chocolate covered Strawberry's! Anything we needed they delivered it. We can't recommend this hotel enough. Thank you to all the staff who made our trip magical!! Katie and Diane x

The location of this hotel cannot be beat. Also the service is impeccable. You walk right out of the lobby and into Central Park and shopping is all around. We walked to Eataly which is one of the best places on earth to shop and dine on Italian cuisine.

This hotel was so welcoming and made our holiday to New York. This is my third trip to New York and some hotels are large and impersonal but not the Ritz Carton. We stayed in their standard room with no view of the park but it was large and very comfortable. The staff were so helpful and kind. Some more expensive hotels can be very stuck up but not here. You feel
Very relaxed from the hustle and bustle of the city. Highly recommend this hotel !!

We stopped by the bar for a couple of drinks and I was blown away. Eric, the bartender was so attentive and friendly. He made the BEST Bloody Mary I've ever had! Between the beautiful atmosphere and the impeccable service, I count this as one of the best hotel bars I have ever been to!

I happened to be in NY with friends and we popped into the bar on the first floor and had a glass of wine while we were contemplating our next move. The lovely Irina served us and was just a delight. The wine is expensive and fabulous and we had an amazing time.
