I Might Never Leave This Hotel…
Does “Squatters Rights” apply?
Beautiful summer day in Manhattan. Hubby asks me to drive in to meet him and spend the night (long business hours…) at the Ritz Carlton on Central Park. “I WILL BE THERE IN 45 MINUTES!” I say quietly…..but screaming in my brain! The chance to experience The Ritz, Central Park NYC…I can’t get there fast enough. I have read about so many celebrities, dignitaries and politicians staying at the Ritz, so why not me!
So here I am, after being escorted to the lobby “suite” by the kindest Gentleman (Front Desk Receptionist) to await my suite. Okay…I am already pampered and I haven’t even entered the room. Actually, if I left right now, I would have great things to say about this hotel…but there is not a chance I am leaving until I experience that room, not after the last half hour of being in the lobby! I almost don’t want to go up to the room yet (even though it is ready), similar in the way that I wait to open a gift…anticipation is half the thrill.
But now I am ready..
By the way, I have stayed at the Four Seasons in NYC many times, so when I say this is impressive….I know what I am comparing it to. SO far, the service is “wildy over and above”. Is that an appropriate description? It would be if you were sitting here.
Finally made the decision to head up to the room..I MEAN SUITE! After the silent glide up the elevator, and the “OMG! I could live here” reaction to the suite, I am now settled into the comfort of this classic, beige, comfy poofy room. As I sit here, among the traditional decor, I always wonder “Is Buckingham Palace this comfortable? Because, the traditional decor of Buckingham Palace is so NOT comfortable looking! But this is.
Of course, the bathroom was my first stop (I AM a girl) and I think it has the most amazing marble I have ever seen. It looks like soft, swirly, caramel ice cream. Beautiful. Bathroom amenities…Yes, I have everything I need and more AND top notch!
Comparable to the Four Seasons…Different. Service is definitely better (which makes EVERYTHING BETTER!). Room is comparable but styled differently. Bathroom is absolutely awesome in both.
Well, I have been here for 2 hours. I have a huge smile on my face. About to climb in the shower to get ready for dinner at Scotto’s. Life is good at the Ritz Carlton.
