It's a Rtiz-Carlton...you should expect the best! And this hotel delivers. However, I do think my expectations are set extremely high for any Ritz, so when the front entrance door was not opened for me by the bellman, I felt a slight tinge of disappointment, but then I checked myself and realized that the hotel is gorgeous, the staff welcoming and pleasant (although if I heard ONE more person say "My pleasure", i was going to lose it!), everything is clean as a whistle and the rooms themselves are comfortable and large. So, who cares if I had to open a door on my own?!
The spa was very nice and very quiet...a great place to relax. The restaurant in the hotel, Elways, is the best place in town to get a steak. The food is fabulous. The service is a bit over the top -- I mean, how many servers does a table of two need? I think we had 4 people! But one waiter took the over-the-topness a little further by being smug and cynical. But that's all for another review.....
The rooms were quiet and the hallways were even quieter. Not once did I see a housekeeping cart or hear any staff members in the hotel portion. Which is a nice, subtle touch to make the luxury feel like it almost happens magically. Nicely done, Ritz!More
