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 replenishing post-race and everything in between, the hotel will ensure a seamless and effortless process, where every detail is taken care of 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 starting line at the Staten Island Ferry. 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 during the race from Battery Park to their new home at Central Park.
Additionally, the offer includes 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.
Marathon participants will also 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.
