Stayed at the Ritz Carlton Battery Park for one Saturday night in October as a short break before having my second child. The location is really nice - out of the really hectic hotel/tourist sprawl of midtown but near enough to transport and some attractions. And the views of the river were incredible, especially at sunset, and the telescope in the room was a fun touch for viewing the boats and buildings along the river. Really was something to watch the huge cruise ships come past. And a great walking location for the river walk up through Battery Park city and Tribeca. Had a great massage, really one of the best I've had, at the spa and the front desk receptionist left a baby gift in my room while I was out which was very sweet. Had a drink and a snack in the bar area before going out to dinner which was fine and had a decent ambiance for a hotel bar. I think there were just a few things missing to make this a truly luxurious experience for the price. The spa is really just a few hotel rooms made into a spa area and this hotel could really use a nice luxury spa area, perhaps with a pool too or sauna/something extra. The hallway and room decor also doesn't quite live up to some of the luxury boutique hotels in the area - they feel very standard hotel chain-ish. And there could be more touches in the room - like really nice luxury chocolates at turndown or better/more interesting toiletries. Otherwise it was a great night's stay and very professional and friendly staff. And the massage really was excellent!
