“BETTER than the RITZ!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

by saying that the ritz in battery park nyc is better than the highest standard, it tells you what you need to know. The rooms are spotless, the view over the harbour to the statue of liberty, the proximity to all that battery park has to offer, every staff member we talked to from the front door, Kevin, to the front desk, to the concierge, the staff in the restaurant, service............absolutely the very very best. Why stay anywhere else if you can afford it.

Room Tip: well obviously the rooms facing the statue of liberty are very special, but they are a little more e...

We have almost always stayed uptown in previous visits to NYC, but if your stay is largely going to be centered south of the Village, this is a very good alternative. Battery Park City is a quiet, residential area, and it's a reasonable walk not only to Wall Street but also to Tribeca and even Soho and the Village. As others have said, further north is definitely a taxi or subway ride.

The hotel itself is a far different experience from the typical hectic NYC hotel experience. It is quiet, new and beautifully laid out. The rooms are very large by any standards, and ours had a spectacular view of the harbor, Statue of Liberty etc. Staff service was friendly and largely efficient.

It is definitely not a typical New York experience to stay here, but if you are a frequent traveler to the city and your business is downtown, this is definitely a very good choice.

Great view of the harbor. Loved having the telescope to look at The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. It is away from the chaos common to the rest of the island, so we like it as a perfect spot to decompress at the end of a day. It is perfectly positioned for any transportation you care to use in NYC, so being so far south was never inconvenient.
Staff was wonderful, gym was very good, and the food/drink (club floor) was excellent. Service was every bit what I would expect from a Ritz-Carlton Property.

Room Tip: Get a Harbor view!

This hotel is ideal for business with easy access to Wallstreet and adjoining businesses.

Had a huge corner room, although missed the harbor view. Nice bathroom with separate room for toilet and shower.

The fitness facilities are nice and clean. Restaurant is a bit small and inadequate for what you would expect for Ritz Carlton, although the food and drinks are very nice.

Could also recommend the hotel for holiday, as there is super easy access to uptown and soho with the subway only 300m away.

We had a huge room which you don't get to say often in NYC. We didn't get a harbor view but truly a massive room. Very comfortable and might have been the best nights sleep I've ever had in a hotel. Staff was great, food was good but being near battery park doesn't do it for me. It would be ok if the subway was closer or more cabs. Everytime we went out a cab was $20 and the drivers kind of need direction to get back to West Side drive from the hotel. Great for a business traveller that wants to be downtown.

Room Tip: Ask for a harbor view.

The hotel was very nice. We received a room upgrade to a 1 -bedroom suite which had a beautiful view of Lady Liberty. The brunch at the restaurant was very good. Ask for the pretzel rolls with the honey-mustard butter.

I recently returned from a 3 nt work/play trip. I loved that I could enjoy a hectic day in the city and then come back to a quiet, clean, and comfortable room at the end of the night. The harbor view was amazing. I know I will be choosing this RC when I come back with my kids because they will love the view too.

Room Tip: Get harbor view suite if possible
