Yankees versus Red Sox, hotel edition: Location within the city
Waldorf: The Waldorf also has an excellent location within Manhattan. Located on Park Avenue, it's within walking distance of Times Square, The Museum of Modern Art, Fifth Avenue Shopping, Radio City Music Hall, Broadway Theaters, and The United Nations. But its proximity to Yankees Stadium in the Bronx is its downfall: Without traffic, it's 20 minutes away, and with traffic it could be an absolute nightmare.
Ritz-Carlton: On Avery St. in the heart of the Theater District and a short walk away from Boston Common, Faneuil Hall, and The Freedom Trail, The Ritz is certainly in prime Boston-tourist location. Newbury Street, The Public Gardens, and Boston's Back Bay are all also within walking distance. Most importantly however, is proximity to the ballpark: Traffic permitting, The Ritz is only an eight-minute drive from Fenway Park.
