This hotel is gorgeous! There is excellent food and room service. The rooms are well-appointed with luxury finishings. The bathroom was huge and luxurious. My room in particular has a view of the NY Harbor and the Statue of Liberty which was pleasant to awake to. Finally, the hotel also has a great location and is walking distance to Wall...

Very comfortable room for a family of 3, spectacular views of the New York Harbor, great staff. Telescope in the room to watch the ferries and barges go by. Expensive food. Eat in the many fantastic restaurants in the city instead of the hotel.

Ritz Carlton @ Battery Park is an amazing hotel for those that want to be near the city but not in the constant "spin cycle" of Times Square etc. Great hotel staff. All the rooms are good but get the Liberty View if possible. The Club Lounge is excellent.

Firstly, let me say that all the reviews on this site that claim the room decor is Marriott are 100% correct. What I found incorrect are the negative reviews on the service. We encountered many of the "ladies and gentlemen" working at this property and all were the right combination of friendly and professional. They seemed to genuinely enjoy their...

Mostly, you know what you're getting at a Ritz-Carlton; the brand is very consistent. The Battery Park property was not quite up to the usual Ritz-Carlton standards. The rooms were very nice with a good-sized bathroom (although only 1 sink) but the amenities in the room were lacking. No coffee maker (the room in the Denver Ritz had a Nespresso);...

It's a clean and modern oasis from the grime of New York's streets. The service was great, but the Christmas decor was weak. It was very easy to get to several different subway lines, and the location on the water is great. Very nice, but kind of atmosphere-less.

The hotel is in a good location. Our rooms were clean and comfortable, as expected for Ritz. We had excellent view of Statue of liberty. The breakfast in 2 West (Ritz's restaurant) was a nightmare. We had to wait for 35 min to get seated and another 40 min to get a cold omelette. Server complaining(!!!) she has been too...

We were in a corner suite and the view was fabulous. A good-quality binocular was provided in room with a stand. In room breakfast was pretty good. The feel of the hotel is very low-key and it is the quintessence of this type of luxury hotel: private while being amid all the happenings.

Lausanne, Switzerland

Hi all,

I'm a bit up in the air here as to the Battery Park Ritz and figured I might ask a few questions & share a few thoughts.

2 adults, 2 children (3&7) booked into a 1 bedroom liberty view club level suite

I'm a bit worried as to transport times & distance. Out of 5 days in NY I can't imagine we'll be in the Battery park area more than 1 or 2. Cost isn't really an issue compared to a 30 minute trip with a tired & cranky 3 yo. Any young families out there that have tried it out?

How good are the Statue of Liberty views? In some photos they look pretty decent while in others lady liberty looks like an ant out on the horizon. Honestly, the view is the main reason I'd take the Battery Park property over Central Park. We just got back from the Ritz Tokyo & had a wonderful city view from a 53rd floor corner suite. Even if I could find a hotel in NY that commanded such views, I would like to have my daughters remember NY a bit differently (one view overlooking a city is pretty much the same as another to young children right?).

Are there really no coffee machines in the rooms? I can't remember the last time I stayed at a hotel without an in-room Nespresso or Lavassa machine & this includes smaller 4* boutique hotels. A bit minimalistic for a high end luxury 5* isn't it?

Any truth to a lack of bathroom amenities? I expect 4*s (and lower 5*s) to stock tooth brushes/razors/sewing kits, etc. on property but properties such as the Ritz should have such things in-room & replenish them when used.

How is this property with kids? What in-room amenities were given for the kids (crayons/colouring books/children's soaps/children's toothbrushes/stuffed ritz lion/etc.)?

Better yet... What were the adult 'welcome amenities" (i.e. welcome card & chocolates)?

Thanks in advance.
