This is more than a Hotel! A real Palace !! From the moment you drive in the highway and you see the Palace closed to the Diplomatic Quarter you see what you gonna get, a magical stay in a Regal Palace. The Staff are super friendly, organized and efficient. Rooms are decorated Burj Al Arab style with Aspreys toiletries and...

Visited the Ritz today for breakfast (that tuned into brunch). The drive into the hotel is spectacular with trees liming the road and a beautiful fountain to great you at reception. The staff give a heartfelt and warm welcome on arrival and the lobby area is incredible. Having travelling around the world and enjoyed many a brunch, I must say...

The hotel, rooms and dining are clean and well maintained. The customer service throughout the hotel was way above expectations. I stay at hotels about 150 nights a year and The Ritz is far and away my favorite.

This is a beautiful hotel, but charging extra for internet in this day and age is like something out of the dark ages. When you're paying over $400/night, you really don't want to feel that you're being nickel and dimed - and as if you'd be more cherished at a Hampton Inn. Really, Ritz-Carlton, it's 2017.

Friendly staff. Not a great location . If you want to stay in a place that would make Louie 14 blush this is it. Over the top but a bit cavernous . Negatives they changed me for internet - really - internet charges at the Ritz? They explained that because I booked on Hotels.com. Seemed pretty tacky at over $300...

Started off by very responsive reservation clerk replying to my email regarding food and prices. No need to tell the wow impression once you enter the main gate seeing those gorgeous fountains more beautiful as you get closer, a friendly ready Valet is awaiting for you at the main entrance "Good Evening ma'am / sir, welcome to the Ritz Carlton!"....
