The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park has unveiled the first stage of its exciting redesign project, with new rooms, suites and a refreshed La Prairie Spa.
Weaving New York style into sleek new spaces, the award-winning hotel has debuted brand new guest rooms, suites, a chic Club Lounge, and a refreshed La Prairie Spa. The next phase will commence in January 2019, slated to be unveiled in spring 2019.
For General Manager Winfred van Workum, the development is perfect for adding a feeling of home to the hotel. “With the first phase completion of our reawakening, the unified vision throughout the hotel allows guests to feel as if they are visiting their very own townhouse in the heart of New York City,” he commented.
“The creative reimagining of our guest rooms, suites, Club Lounge, and spa creates a heightened sense of place and serves as a gateway for travelers to experience the destination with ease and luxury.”
Inspired by the city that surrounds the hotel, the newly designed guest rooms are a haven of sophisticated tranquility. Comfort and style set the tone with custom-made furnishings blending Beaux Arts classicism with contemporary flair to create an ambiance found only in New York‘s chicest penthouses.
Think Cceamy ecru hues, custom carpeting inlaid with a Matisse sketch, and Fornasetti wallpaper of cloud formations.
A revamped honor bar allows guests to experience the ingredients of NYC in the comfort of their own room with a private single selection single barrel bourbon developed in partnership by the city’s oldest whiskey distillery – Kings County Distillery.
True to the residentially inspired style of The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park, the 47 suites inclusive of five Specialty Suites – the hotel’s rebranded Presidential Suites – welcome guests to escape to their very own pied-à-terre.
Sprawling in size, the suites are filled with custom furniture and artwork line the walls of all suites, every piece resonating the heart and soul of the building and its city.
The darlings of the reawakening are the two Legendary Suites, which are bold, new additions to the collection and create opportunities for living quarters up to four bedrooms.
