We stayed at the Ritz for a week in one of the club suites. The room had two bathrooms, a living area, and a quiet bedroom. Being at Central Park, you couldn't ask for a better location. The club provided us with excellent meals and drinks. When we had to go several blocks, the hotel offered its house Mercedes to us. The housekeeping was wonderful, the front desk helped us with whatever we needed, and it was an all-around great experience. If you are able to, it's worth a stay.

We came from Australia and was willing to pay the exorbitated amount of money to have a view of the thanks giving day parade and partial view of the park. It cost us 20,000 US so imaging what it cost Australian. While we readily accepted that it appeared that it would cost a lot it was the comparison to staying at the Goring in London that shocked us. 12 dollars to get a cup of tea. We would have expected at least free cups of tea. They were there thanks giving morning and that was the end of it and you had to go to the lobby to get it. For that money you should at least get tea / coffee making facilities in your room. Breakfast was extra. We did get plenty of water and on some nights a chocolate others not. We started to feel a bit bitter about the cost and then tipping on top. The staff were very nice but we didnt get the initial interaction we expected for what we paid. At the Goring we were greeted with sitting in the lounge area with tea and cake (no charge) and were waited on and greeted with asking if we had any needs whereas here we have had no interactions as to our needs other than from the ladies turning down the beds. The cost at the Goring for real British high class hotel was substantially less. Its a great location but not worth that amount of money. The room is beautiful, the staff nice but management just want too much for the bit you get.
