A Midtown Manhattan Hotel Near NYC’s Iconic Sights


rcBreakText rcBreakWhiteText

In the heart of midtown Manhattan, set along the southern edge of Central Park, this NYC hotel offers the perfect location for exploring the city. Rockefeller Center, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and other landmarks are nearby. Shopping along Madison or Fifth avenues is a stroll away. The Natural History Museum and MoMA are within easy reach. A Broadway show can be easily paired with drinks and bites at the hotel’s Contour gastro lounge. And the city's sprawling greenspace, Central Park, is just outside. With a city so vast in its offerings, our Concierge Ladies and Gentlemen can assist to curate the perfect itinerary for your stay in the city.

Seasonal Activities

There is no shortage of excitement in the city during the summer season. With longer days and shorter nights, New Yorkers and visitors alike can soak up the sun in a day trip to the Hamptons or Coney Island and enjoy the city's parks including our iconic front garden of Central Park with programming such as Shakespeare in the Park. Additionally, a variety of events such as outdoor concerts and the U.S. Open, coupled with nights enjoying al fresco dining, rooftop bars, and much more make for an inspiring visit.


Embrace our ideal location for a weekend of shopping on Fifth Avenue and Columbus Circle, visiting some of the best museums in the world, and enjoying the city’s finest restaurants while fall foliage takes center stage in Central Park. November and December are a magical time in New York City, as some of the nation’s most beautiful holiday decorations adorn the city. The world-famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade passes right by The Ritz-Carlton and heralds the holiday season in a memorable way. Marvel over (or even skate at) the Rockefeller Christmas Tree, stroll through Central Park, gaze at the artistic wonders of the holiday window displays, and more. Once the New Year begins, new theater performances and concerts are abuzz in the city. A not to miss event during Fall/Winter: discovering the latest obsession-worthy collections at New York Fashion Week, which occurs in September and February every year.


Spring always breathes new life into New York City, shaking off its winter chills as the temperatures rise and parks bloom brightly, punctuated by the beautiful cherry blossom trees originally gifted to the park by Japan. MLB is back up at the plate with opening day in early April and regardless where your allegiances lies, the city is home to two spectacular stadiums: Yankee Stadium and Citi Field. Additional highlights include: film festivals, festive parades, new cultural attractions and exhibits, and more.
