Hotels end the year with high-profile renovations


Hotels are ending the year strong with many high-profile renovations across the country.

Here are few of the most recent notable ones.

The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park

Phase one of a complete renovation at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park is complete.

The hotel has debuted all-new guest rooms, suites, a Club Lounge and a refreshed La Prairie Spa. Phase two will begin in January and is scheduled to be done by spring 2019. That will include the lobby, lounge, bar and restaurant.

“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,” says Winfred van Workum, general manager of The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park.

The newly designed guest rooms have custom-made furnishings in a Beaux Arts style with contemporary embellishments.

The rooms have a revamped honor bar with a private single-selection single-barrel bourbon developed in partnership with Kings County Distillery.

The hotel has 47 suites in addition to five specialty suites – the rebranded Presidential Suites. The Avenue View Suite category shows Manhattan’s bustling streets. The Premiere Park View Suites have views of the park’s treetops.
