Formerly the site of the St. Moritz Hotel, The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park occupies a stately Emery Roth building at the corner of Sixth Avenue and Central Park South and features an elegant design style befitting its glamorous location. A pale yellow, cream and light brown color scheme runs throughout the hotel, while guest room furniture features dark wood with gilded trim. A neoclassical French and English design scheme predominates, especially in the hotel’s public spaces like the Star Lounge, just off the lobby. There you’ll find dark wood paneling on the walls showcasing dreamy Samuel Halpert paintings, dark green marble tables topped with white orchids, plush loveseats and regal armchairs in leather and silk. From the moment the doormen open the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel’s double doors and you cross the threshold, you’ll instantly be transported into the world of Old New York.
