“Very Nice Downtown Hotel”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

This is a nice luxury hotel. I think as far as Ritz-Carltons go, this one was missing a few ammenities, but it is very clean, well maintained and comfortable. The staff was all very friendly and attentive. The room was spacious. The soaking tub was great! There are great views of the Statue of Liberty from the 14th floor terrace and we had a city view room with a great view of the Freedom Tower. The hotel only had one restaurant, didn't have a coffee shop, and didn't have a pool, which was a disappointment to my kids, but, outside of that, we had a very comfortable stay.

Room Tip: If you ask for a corner room, you will get more space.

Stayed at the property just one night and two days but it felt like a mini-vacation. Great view of the Statue of Liberty from the room. The concierge lounge had great food and drinks and was very, very relaxing. Staff was uniformly friendly and helpful. Rented Citibikes right out front of the hotel for great bike rides along the Hudson River. Very easy to get to the property using the subway. Room was large and very comfortable. Excellent bedding.

4 nights of bliss, excellent sized room and bathroom. Go for Statue of Liberty view if you can. Staff are all very friendly and attentive. Was worried about location, especially with 2 very young girls but subway and taxis cheap and plentiful, nice way to finish the day away from uptown. Only minus points are lack of tea/coffee making facilities and no free wi-fi in room. Otherwise a first class experience and well worth the money. Would recommend this place to anyone, excellent service.

First time I've ever stayed at a Ritz, I'm more of a hostel kind of person normally. But, was staying there on business, so, there you go. Check-in was a breeze, staff were friendly and upgraded my room as I'd be staying for 3 weeks. The telescope by the window, so one could view the Statue of Liberty in the distance, was a nice touch. Bathroom was fine, though I don't understand shower door design that allows water to just drip outside while you're showering. Felt a little bad a bout paying something like $24 for a piece of cake from room service, but I rarely availed myself of that
They had arranged for me to have a coffee pod machine in my room, and they were a bit slow on replacing the pods and paper cups for it, but as soon as they noticed that I'd brought in some of my own from the outside, they were quickly replaced with those night blue Ritz cups!.
Chocolate on the pillow at night was nice, and I have to say that the pillows were by far the most comfortable pillows I have ever slept on. In my entire life. No joke.

The Ritz-Carlton in Battery Park was the perfect hotel for my wife and I. This was our first trip to New York - and we really took a long time to decide where to stay. We were unsure if we should stay in a more central location like midtown, or battery park. We ultimately chose the battery park Ritz-Carlton because of the views of Lady Liberty. We are so happy with our choice. We stayed in a harbor view room. The area around the hotel was very quaint - with a beautiful walking path down the center of the street right outside the hotel that has an amazing view of the new Freedom Tower. The room was clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. The service was outstanding. If I had to pick one thing that could use improvement - it would be to add a coffee or espresso maker to the room. Other than that - it was very quite, the beds were extremely comfortable - and the views were better than we expected. We enjoyed using the telescope to get closer views of Liberty and Ellis islands. Overall, we would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again in the future.

It was wonderful from the start-when the taxi pulled up we were greeted promptly by a very enthusiastic doorman. At reception we were told of the upgrade to a suite. Our original package included club level access which of course included light food served 4 times per day. The suite was impressive with huge bedroom/livingroom and 1-1/2 bathroom. The services throughout our stay were friendly, courteous and prompt, including housekeeping ( who came immediately when I asked for foam pillows ONLY and then asked should they make the entire room' feather' free- meaning the comforters etc.) I was impressed they thought of that detail.
I had a good massage.The staff was fantastic. The spa area is very small, maybe only 2 massage rooms. That day I did not require more, but if you were seeking sauna and hot whirl pool you maybe disappointed.
It was memorable weekend. We stayed there before and were so happy we decided to revisit the property and look forward to future stays.

We were a very large group of business friends all gathering for an important conference and this hotel made it all happen so smoothly. Great true waterfront property, excellent location.
Lively bar, good restaurants and excellent rooms, quiet and well appointed.
