Editor’s Review of The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park

Formerly Hotel St. Moritz, the Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park opened its grand doors in 2002. The 33-story palace, located in the cultural center of Midtown Manhattan, majestically overlooks Central Park and the buildings beyond.

Though the hotel is the epitome of luxury (as most Ritz-Carlton properties are), its most prominent feature, in our opinion, is its staff. Each staff member is friendly, knowledgeable and spirited by the hotel, and with good reason: The hotel is a Forbes Five-Star property. Travel + Leisure also named it the No. 1 hotel in New York City in 2011 and 2012, and U.S. News and World Report has recognized it as one of the best hotels in America.

In addition to its
... more incomparable staff, notable features include La Prarie at the Ritz-Carlton Spa; the Club Lounge, which offers five delicious food presentations; and plenty of family-friendly amenities, including goodie-filled backpacks for kids upon arrival.

The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park offers 259 luxurious rooms and suites. Each unit features high-definition flat-screen TV's, oversized marble bathrooms with Asprey amenities, complimentary bathrobes, in-room safes, DVD players, mini bars and wireless Internet access. All beds have 400-thread count linens, and guests can choose from seven types of pillows. If you're not comfortable, it's your own fault!

Guestrooms range between 425 and 450 square feet in size, and come with various views. Each Parkview room includes a tabletop telescope for an up-close look at Central Park. While these rooms are spacious, there's only one king bed in each unit; unless you're traveling with a new baby (who can sleep in a crib provided by the hotel), you'll want to stay in a suite.

Suites feature much more space, ranging from 790 square feet to 1,980 square feet in size. They also include Bang & Olufsen stereo systems with several CD selections. The Parkview Suite is suitable for a family of four, as it has a separate bedroom for mom and dad, and a pullout sofa bed for the youngsters. It also has one and a half bathrooms, so you won't have to wait hours for your teenager to finish her makeup for lack of enough bathroom space!

The Royal Suite is as good as it gets, with a floor model telescope, library, eight-person dining table, Floris shaving kit, complimentary access to the Club Lounge and a connecting bedroom. Located on the 22nd floor, the lavish suite also provides astounding views of the city.

The housekeeping staff will clean your room or suite in the morning, and provide turndown service at night. Furthermore, they'll deliver a copy of the New York Times to your door each morning. If you'd like to read a different newspaper, the concierge will be happy to provide you with the newspaper of your choice.
