Central Park Tea and Brunch

Hi, I'm planning a day around central park for a group of visitors.

I'm looking for a nice hotel lounge area were you can sit and relax or enjoy a cup of tea around central park - possibly with a view of the park. Nothing extravagantly expensive. Your help is appreciated.

  1. Don't bother with a hotel, go to The Boathouse in Central Park -- great place in the heart of the park. Enter at 72d St. (Fifth Ave. is closest, but also accessible from CPW). Great during the fall!

    1. you can go to the ritz...they have a cupcake tea going on, but reseies need to be made.

      1. not a hotel, but you could try bouchon bakery in the time warner center (the restaurant area not take out area), and have tea and pastries there. You will have a view of columbus circle and the entrance to the park. But it does get very crowded at lunch so you may want to go at an off-time for a more relaxing experience.
