Awe-inspiring vistas of Lady Liberty and New York Harbor combine with Ritz-Carlton elegance at this Lower Manhattan luxury hotel. A more modern version of its Central Park partner, Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park excels at friendly, superlative service. Located at the edge of the Financial District, this award-winning hotel is a 5-minute walk from Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. The World Financial Center is a half-mile north, along the Hudson River. Your stay needn’t be all business, though. Walk less than 5 minutes south along the Hudson River Greenway to Battery Park, where ferries depart for the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Or treat yourself to something bright and beautiful from Tiffany’s Wall Street store, steps from the New York Stock Exchange. For trendy shopping, take a 5-minute cab ride to SoHo or Tribeca. Heading to Midtown? A subway stop is a 7-minute walk from the hotel, and you can get to Times Square in about 20 minutes. After a day of sightseeing or meetings, unwind with dinner at 2 West, the Ritz-Carlton’s modern American bistro. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame park views. Save room for a decadent dessert, designed by celebrated pastry chef Laurent Richard. You can burn off calories with a fresh-air walk, or enjoy the convenience of the hotel’s 24-hour fitness center. State-of-the-art equipment and panoramic views of the New York skyline help make workouts a pleasure. Now, don’t you deserve a spa treatment? The spa at the Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park features Carita Paris beauty therapies and an array of blissful massage options. In-room spa treatments are available, too. Freshly renovated guestrooms invite you to relax in style. Beds are layered with 400-thread-count Frette linens and plump duvets. Snuggle up against the down pillows and watch a late-night show on the 42-inch flat-panel HDTV. Stay in touch via wireless Internet access, available for a surcharge in all guestrooms and public areas. If you’re craving something delicious in the wee hours, in-room dining is available 24 hours a day. Marble bathrooms feature separate showers and soaking tubs. You can even request the Ritz-Carlton’s exclusive Bath Butler service (surcharge). All rooms are smoke-free, and many command dramatic views of the Statue of Liberty.
