The Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park hotel offers a convenient location and contemporary interior design coupled with spacious luxury suites and unbeatable personal service.
Located at the southern tip of Manhattan, Battery Park is well known to tourists for its ferry service to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, as well as its numerous film appearances, such as the infamous scenes of Madonna along the waterfront in the 1985 film “Desperately Seeking Susan.”
Besides the common popularity, Battery Park offers travelers to New York, picturesque views and a quiet setting, away from the noisy bustle of midtown Manhattan. Take a morning jog through the 25 acre public park, or an evening stroll just a few blocks east to Pearl Street, where you will enjoy a plethora of dining choices along brick-lined roadways.
Unlike the typical New York hotels, which offer slow elevators that take you to a cramped room on the 44th floor, The Ritz-Carlton offers 298 spacious guest rooms and 39 luxurious suites, ranging from 425 square feet up to 2,500 square feet. The award-winning property features expansive windows and telescopes in each of the rooms with a Statue of Liberty view.
From Frette linens, feather duvets, and goose down pillows — to marble bathtubs, countertops, and a separate marble shower stall, it appears that the abundance of amenities is limitless.
In order to maintain the high standards that many have come to expect from The Ritz-Carlton, a procedural practice at their hotels is what they call a ‘care program,’ which entails taking each room out of service on a regular 90 day rotation to undergo a complete maintenance check — from everything such as a thorough investigation for any carpet stains, to changing each light bulb in the guest room.
