The Wagner at the Battery
"Where else can you get, in most rooms anyway, magnificent views of New York Harbor from your bedroom -- complete with telescope for close-ups of Lady Liberty? And where else can you have a cocktail in your hotel bar and watch the sun set over the harbor? This modern, Art Deco-influenced high-rise differs from the English-countryside look of most Ritz-Carltons, including its sister hotel on Central Park, but that's where the differences end"
"Afternoon tea is served in the bar"
""A top-notch" hotel overlooking New York Harbor that offers "superb quality and attention to details", this luxe property caters to Wall Street suits and lovebirds looking for "a romantic getaway" with "impeccable" service; the "fabulous" accommodations (some with "to-die-for" views of the Statue of Liberty) sport Frette linens and marble bathrooms, while the "first-class" facilities include a full-service spa and an "excellent" lobby bar where "you might catch a star" -- if the experience is "pricey", loyalists say "you gotta treat yourself once in a while"
"The 298 accommodations include 39 suites and the lavish The Ritz-Carlton Suite, as well as Club Level rooms with access to a lounge serving complimentary continental breakfast, hors d'oeuvres, wine and cocktails"
"The club-level provides guests on that level, in addition to any guest willing to pay the $150 surcharge, access to the panoramic lounge with four daily food presentations and even free alcoholic beverages"
