How it Ranks: The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park ranks #1 out of 816 New York City Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in the USA.

Our Take: This stylish Ritz rises majestically off of Central Park's south side, beckoning to luxury-seekers in search of a prime Midtown location paired with impeccable customer service. Previous travelers highlight the elegance of the 259 accommodations, especially calling out extra touches — such as crisp 400-thread-count linens, deep soaking tubs and Asprey bath products — as major perks. Previous visitors also cite the hotel staff as extremely accommodating. And you're guaranteed a five-star stay here from the mouthwatering entrées served at the super-swank Auden Bistro & Bar to the lavish spa services at the in-house La Prairie. Despite the exorbitant price-tag, recent guests agree the hotel's unparalleled location and ambiance are well worth the splurge. And thanks to the Ritz' Marriott ties, guests who participate in the company's guest loyalty program may also receive complimentary perks like as free nights for choosing to stay here.
