NEW YORK, N.Y. – October 3, 2017 – The Ritz-Carlton Hotels of New York City are offering a one-of-a-kind Marathon package to take care of all the travel needs and unanticipated essentials needed for a successful race day. From helping guests get ready for the big day, to making their trip to the starting line, stride from the finish line, and cool down that precedes it all a seamless and effortless process, the NYC Marathon takes care of every detail so that all guests have to focus on, is the race itself.
This unique package features overnight accommodations at both The Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park and The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park with the journey beginning at Battery Park the night before the race, located just a short walk from the Staten Island Ferry to bring guests to the starting line. After the race, the guest’s accommodations bring them to Central Park, located just steps from the finish line. For the guest’s convenience, their luggage will be transported for them during the race from Battery Park to their new home at Central Park, waiting for them when they finish the race uptown.
Additionally, the offer comes with a welcome package at Battery Park with all the essentials needed for a Marathon runner, such as energy gels and a muscle roller to loosen up the night before the race. A specialty “Carbo-Load Live Pasta Making Station” at the hotel’s 2 West Restaurant will be prepared specifically for the runners the night before the Marathon. Once the race has commenced, package guests will enjoy a post-race three course pre-fixe meal at Auden Bistro at Central Park, consisting of protein-packed recovery foods plus a personalized welcome amenity in their room upon arrival.
Lastly, Marathon participants can unwind and relax with a 60-minute Muscle Repair Massage at La Prairie Spa at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park. Featuring deep tissue and Swedish techniques to unwind painful knots, the treatment restores guests to their top performance while incorporating the healing benefits of Arnica to sooth tired muscles.
