Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park Completes Multi-Phase Refurbishment

The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park has completed a multi-phase refurbishment.

The luxury hotel now features a new social dining experience with Contour, as well as added wellness and fitness areas.

These new offerings complement the hotel’s redesigned Club Lounge, La Prairie Spa, and guest rooms and suites.

“The transformation our hotel has seen over the course of this past year truly redefines luxury in Manhattan,” said Winfred van Workum, General Manager of The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park. “Combining a bold vision and inspiration with our legendary service, the vibrant energy of the city and Central Park shines through each of the spaces and provides a renewed oasis in the heart of New York City.”

Upon entering the hotel, a new all-day gastro lounge draws you into the heart of the lobby’s transformation, where the rhythm builds through three distinct rooms for a day to night cocktail and culinary experience.

Each space flows in a playful design of plush banquettes, marble accents, New York-inspired artwork, and a variety of seating arrangements – secluded and sociable.

Connecting the two lounge areas is a vibrant bar where accents of marble, bronze, and gold are complemented by a bold Matisse sketch that stretches across the ceiling, lending inspiration for Contour’s namesake.

Collaborating with music-curating firm Sonodea, the ambiance is set with an expertly selected playlist to take the space from day to night, with the beats increasing as time progresses.

An emphasis is placed on the artisanal beverage experience at this New York City lounge with impressive handcrafted classic cocktails and seasonal infusions. Striking presentations provide a moment of wonder including the shareable Honey Ginger Infusion, aged for up to seven days in honeycomb, grapefruit, and ginger.

The menu concept focusing on “For Us” and “For Me” plates encourages guests to share and mingle within the lounge.

Along with its all-day menu, Contour offers breakfast daily in a comfortable setting for a quick meal to start the day, or a stylish atmosphere for a morning meeting.

Fitness Center & Movement Studio

The mezzanine level of The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park has been redesigned to deliver guests a bespoke health and wellness experience.

The Fitness Center features brand new, state-of-the-art Technogym equipment and weights within a bright and inviting space designed to create the ambiance of being in one’s own private gym.

The Fitness Center is complemented by an innovative Movement Studio, featuring virtual fitness classes by FitnessOnDemand, which delivers consistent, high-quality media and programming through a variety of channels for individual or small group workouts.

 Scheduled virtual group classes are offered throughout the week, while outside of these times, all classes are available.

Additional amenities enhancing guest’s wellness routines include Peloton bikes, a Concept2 Rower, and full-length ballet bar.

 Along with this new design, guests will find distinct amenities such as a hydration station with still and sparkling water on tap with the ability to add all-natural wellness flavor drops.
