Two of the Ritz-Carlton hotels in New York, the Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park and the Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park, are offering a great special for those who are planning to run the New York City Marathon on 5 November. Baroque Travel finds out all about it
The annual New York City Marathon is almost upon us, a race with a route through all five boroughs of New York City. This is the largest marathon in the world, with an expected 98,247 applications in 2017. If you are one of these applicants, or are coming to the city to cheer on the multitudes, we want to tell you about a great special that is being offered by two of Ritz-Carlton’s New York City hotels.
This one-of-a-kind New York Marathon package will take care of everything for you when you take part in this legendary race in 2017, or are a bystander. You’ll be looked after literally from start to finish, ensuring a successful race day. The hotels have organized assisting guests prepare for their big race, and will also replenish runners and bystanders staying with them after the race. But that’s just a taste of what’s in store…
The Ritz-Carlton hotels of New York plan to take care of every detail so that all their guests participating in the New York City Marathon in some way can enjoy the day to the full. The package includes overnight accommodations at both hotels. The adventure begins at Battery Park the night before the race. The hotel, which is located a short walk from the starting line at the Staten Island Ferry, is located in the city’s financial center, offering the best of both worlds. During the day (when they’re not running, of course!) they can enjoy the buzz and vibrant energy and at night they can relax in the quiet. This five star hotel offers an American bistro, luxury spa and plush accommodation with water views.
That evening, you will enjoy a special carbo-loading meal at the Hotel’s 2 West Restaurant where a ‘Carbo-Load Live Pasta Making Station’ has been specially prepared for you.
If you are participating in the race, your luggage will be transported for you during the race from Battery Park to the Ritz-Carlton Central Park, where you will spend the night after the race. The hotel is situated literally a few steps from the finish line.
This historic luxury hotel in the heart of Midtown is charming and elegant with breathtaking views of the skyline and a stunning location close to all the shops on Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue, as well as numerous sights such as Radio City Music Hall, the Museum of Modern Art, Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall.
Of course that evening you will be far too exhausted to do much more than enjoy the post-race three-course pre-fixe meal at the hotel’s Auden Bistro. Your meal will include protein-packed dishes that will aid your recovery after the race. Another surprize is waiting in your room in the form of a personalized welcome amenity.
Wait… there’s more! Those weary runners can also unwind and relax their tired muscles with an hour-long Muscle Repair Massage at the hotel’s La Prairie Spa. This exceptional rejuvenating massage features deep tissue and Swedish techniques to loosen those exhausted legs, soothe tired muscles and restore you to good form.
