A Birthday to Remember

A little girl and her parents travel all over the world in stay in various hotels for weeks at a time. The family came to stay at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park as part of their travels. The little girl quickly became part of our Ritz-Carlton family, running into the Club Lounge early in the morning to hug each staff member and wish them good morning. On the weekends, her father would read out loud to her from our Dr. Seuss book selection, which quickly drew the endearing attention from our regular weekend guests as well. The family was due to check out to continue their travels to other cities. As part of their future travels, they would be celebrating the little girl’s birthday. On her birthday, the little girl was so upset she was not in New York at the Central Park’s Club Lounge to celebrate with the staff. The only way her father could console her was to promise to return shortly to The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park. Upon learning that the family was returning, the Guest Relations and Club Lounge Team put together a birthday party in the family’s guest room to surprise the little girl when she checked-in. She was so excited and happy! Part of her birthday gift was a little tea set she had mentioned she liked to the Club Lounge team. Without even enjoying her cake in the room, she rushed her father to the Club Lounge to see the staff. She brought her new tea set to the Club Lounge where she was able to enjoy tea with our Club Staff.

Adjacent to the hotel’s exclusive Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge is the Olmstead Boardroom which overlooks Central Park. This elegant and comfortable boardroom accommodates up to 10 guests around an exquisite oval hardwood conference table and offers inspiring views of Central Park.
