Stories That Stay With You: Battery Park
October 07, 2011
Unique and Memorable Moments from the Ladies and Gentlemen of The Ritz-Carlton
My wife and I took our four sons to New York to attend the NFL draft. After checking in at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park, we immediately headed out to the convention center. The doors opened at 6 a.m., and it was a first-come/first-seated policy. Our sons talked us into staying in line on the sidewalk overnight. At about 1 a.m., I called the hotel, and asked Chris, the Night Manager, if they could possibly bring us five blankets, knowing it was a long shot. But not more than an hour later, the hotel doorman, Ronnie, emerged from a taxi armed with blankets and five cups of hot chocolate to keep us warm. Turns out that the best night I ever had at The Ritz-Carlton was spent on the sidewalk.
