The Ritz-Carlton: Leading the Way Since 1927

Posted: Jun. 14th, 2008  |  By JustLuxe Team
Five Star Hotel: When one thinks of living the life of luxury, there are a few things that come to mind: diamond rings, Champagne, caviar, private jets, exotic automobiles and amazing hotels. Amongst the finest hotels in the world is, the Ritz-Carlton, leading the pack. Since it's opening in 1927, the Ritz Carlton has set the gold standard for luxury hotels. Reinventing and establishing European elegance and charm into the metropolitan feel of American society was the goal of the original Ritz-Carlton.

Service and Amenities
The service at the Ritz is what sets it apart from other luxury hotels. The mission for every service member from the doorman to the maitre d' is to fulfill each guests own personal wishes and anticipate their every need. At the Ritz-Carlton it is the wait staff's goal to ensure that your visit is absolutely perfect each and every time.

Just as the service is unparalleled by any other hotel, so are the facilities of the Ritz-Carlton. Every location has a unique and sophisticated design with world-class trimmings while still maintaining the Ritz-Carlton ambiance. When opening the first Ritz-Carlton in Boston, the founders imported glass from Europe but the glass had a chemical reaction with the Boston air, giving it a blue tint. From then on, the Ritz-Carlton only ordered blue glass and used blue glasses in the dining rooms. To this day, many of the Ritz-Carlton locations still use the signature blue goblets in their dining rooms to carry on the tradition.

Top quality fitness centers with the newest equipment is just one of the many extras the Ritz offers to their guests. Amazing spas with luxurious treatments enhances the Ritz-Carlton experience and gives the guest a chance to rejuvenate and heal.

The Ritz-Carlton also offers a club lounge for guests that are looking for a little more privacy. Rooms here are more secluded and include a private lounge and leisure retreat. Guests are provided with a private check-in and checkout, culinary presentation daily, and a concierge service that is ready to make every dream a reality.

Fine Dining
The Ritz-Carlton has always been synonymous with incredible cuisine. The Ritz redefined hotel gastronomy when it opened by providing an a la carte menu to better service the guest by allowing them to choose what they wanted and emphasizing the culinary practices of Auguste Escoffier, the godfather of modern French cooking. Today, the Ritz-Carlton continues to offer a cutting-edge dining experience and creates dishes that will please even the most discerning palates. Each Ritz offers many savory selections to please the senses.

Elegance, charm, luxury, style and passion is what the Ritz-Carlton hotels are all about. The Ritz embodies the luxury lifestyle and has set the benchmark for all other luxury hotels companies in the world to try and meet. But no hotel will ever be comparable with the original magnificence of the Ritz-Carlton luxury hotels.
