New Hotel, Illustrious History: How the Ritz-Carlton Battery Park Became the Wagner Battery Park

New York can’t ever have too much of a good thing. Take hotels, for example. From uptown to downtown, options abound as to where visitors can rest their heads, with a plethora of choose-your-own vibes, aesthetics, prices and clientele. We understand the struggle is all too real, as at our current site, there lived not one but two fine properties. What was once the former Ritz-Carlton Battery Park is now our very own Wagner Battery Park, an equally unparalleled luxury experience with contemporary touches and a modern flair. In the transition from the hotel that was formerly Ritz-Carlton Battery Park to today’s Wagner Battery Park, some design elements have changed, yet many touch-points stayed the same. Carpet treatments and fixtures aside, what has remained is the Wagner Battery Park’s epic waterfront location, its proximity to the city’s best shopping, entertainment and restaurants, and its reputation as a world-class destination worthy of its new name.

And what exactly makes the Wagner Battery Park so special? For one, as a contemporary luxury hotel, it features an outstanding restaurant, water-view accommodations, and sought-after meeting and wedding facilities. Not unlike the former Ritz-Carlton Battery Park, its five-star amenities allow guests to get the most out of their New York experience.

While the Wagner Battery Park is quite new, we plan to build upon the property’s Ritz-Carlton roots, adding modern flair and our own signature brand of refinement and elegance to create the perfect backdrop to your New York City vacation.
