  • Awesome views of the city and after a long drive. Nice atmosfer in the hotel and beautiful lobby. Staff all very friendly, fabulous room and bar service in the Greenhouse was perfunctory at best.

  • The location is incredible, hotel staff is very friendly and professional, the concierge service is efficient and helpful. Rooms are beautifully appointed and the restaurant food is really good. The cocktails in the deca lounge are excellent, fitness and spa are great and fully available without extra fees.

    Breakfast is too expensive and poor quality.

  • Nice view from room and best coffee in town. Loved everything about our stay, price was reasonable too for Ritz and the staff were extremely accomodating and the overall experience was excellent. The bedding was comfortable, the breakfast was delicious.

    The fitness center was just above average, and crowded, the decor was dated. Water pressure in the shower everything else was fabulous and also, the restaurant had less than enthusiastic service to put kindly.
