The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park has announced a hotel-wide transformation set to modernize guest rooms and suites, the Club Lounge, lobby lounge, and La Prairie Spa.
“Drawing inspiration from our front garden, the reawakening embodies the sights, sounds, and palette of Central Park,” says Winfred van Workum, general manager of The Ritz Carlton New York, Central Park. “We look forward to heightening the guest experience with bespoke New York touches and welcoming our esteemed guests to a new era of modern luxury.”
The property’s La Prairie Spa, the first of its kind in the U.S., will welcome a refreshed look that will serve as an intimate haven amongst the Manhattan hustle and bustle. Currently, the spa features six treatment rooms, complemented by separate relaxation areas and steam rooms for both ladies and gentlemen. The spa is currently closed for renovations but is expected to reopen in the fall of 2018.
The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park also features a 24-hour state-of-the-art fitness facility, which offers cardiovascular and weight training equipment, complemented by a steam room for post-workout relaxation. To take workouts to the next level, guests reserve personal training sessions through the spa up to 48 hours before their stay. Sessions focus on overall fitness, yoga, Pilates, running, and more. Running maps and a NYC Wellness Guide, featuring the best spots in New York to bike, work out, eat healthy, and dine, are also available.
The renovations will include the debut of two new Presidential Suites, which will feature bespoke furniture and artwork among the revamped hotel’s new, elevated décor. Black and white photography will adorn the walls throughout the hotel, highlighting New York artists including the fashion and portrait photographer Rodney Smith. The renovations are expected to be completed in early 2019.
