Site Inspection: Ritz-Carlton Central Park

Suite Bedroom

During my trip to New York City for the 2012 Virtuoso Northeast Regional Meeting I had the opportunity to do a site inspection of the Ritz-Carlton Central Park. What a beautiful hotel! The location is perfect and the rooms were stunning. I especially liked the suites that had living spaces with views of Central Park, and bedrooms that faced a quiet interior courtyard. Perfect for light sleepers!

Did you know that a route change means that you will be able to see the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade from many of the rooms at the Ritz-Carlton Central Park this year? I can’t imagine a better place to watch the parade!
