The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park Review

It's all about the park views here, though the above-and-beyond service, accommodating to a fault, makes this renowned property popular with celebs and other demanding guests. Service aside, the competition among properties near Central Park's south side is fierce, and although the Ritz isn't the foremost of the bunch, it does offer the typical high-end hotel perks, like fancy bath products and luxe linens (here, they're exclusively made 700-thread-count) and one that's not so standard: a telescope for viewing park wildlife. The gym is small, however, as is La Prairie at the Ritz-Carlton Spa. Auden Bistro and Bar has comfortable leather chairs and a local, seasonal menu both in the kitchen and behind the bar.

    Nice Room, But 'Stinky' Location

    My husband and I celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary by staying the weekend at the Ritz and while the suite overlooking the park was perfect and the service impeccable, as we stood in the lobby by the front doors waiting for a limo to take us to dinner, the horse manure smell from the horse&buggy carriages right across the street was a turn off. We couldn't pass the lobby without smelling the stench. The location was okay, but we would prefer to stay closer to Saks, Rockefeller Center, etc., especially at Christmas. With the crowds, it was a pain getting to Fifth Avenue shopping. We wouldn't stay there again.

    Great place to stay

    The room, decor and service was superb.....We had access to all parts of the city from our location. We stayed 2 nights and it was wonderful. The room and its decor was fantastic and the service was great. Pick up the phone and room service was available.
