The Ritz Carlton Battery Park is a great hotel for families staying in the city. As ex-New Yorkers we often stay on the lower east side, where we used to live. However the Chef was in town for an amazing event and they put us up at the Ritz Carlton in Battery Park. Even though I lived in New York for most of my 20's I had never really explored Battery Park. I went there once when we went to Ellis Island and I think that's about it.
We checked in and the first thing that I noticed was how kid friendly the front desk people were to my kids. They got them a Ritz Carlton kid bag that had toys, goodies, and a hotel scavenger hunt. My kids were impressed. After checking in we went up to our room and were very pleased with the size of our suite. Lately I have noticed that hotels have been selling "suites" that are really just a big room with a pullout couch. This was not the case. We had two very large separate rooms and the minis set up camp in theirs and we set up camp in ours. For our family of four, a suite has become a must have aspect of travel. It allows space for all parties involved and can easily make or break a vacation. Since this was a work trip we knew that space between mom and dad and the minis would be important.
The master bathroom was gorgeous with a huge soaking tub and separate shower. The minis had their own bathroom and a kitchenette. The room itself was spectacular.
We had a fabulous time staying in Battery Park and it really grew on us as a place for us to stay in the city. Transportation is easy from the hotel to anywhere in the city and the path by the river is easily walkable and filled with playgrounds and fun sights to entertain the kids. I would highly recommend staying at The Ritz Carlton in Battery Park.
