I have stayed at this hotel close to 50 times over the past 3 years but never got around to reviewing it. Having stayed at its major competitors (Rosewood and 4 Seasons) I can say that the choice is easy when it comes to choosing a hotel in Riyadh. The rooms are nothing out of the ordinary but they are... More

This hotel is absolutely amazing. It is spotless from top to bottom thanks to an army of workers. The entrance is grand and amazingly ornate. Keep in mind that Saudi customs and rules still apply but somewhat looser. The pool, spa, and workout area are for men only and sitting areas are separate for singles and families. The rooms are...

We've been wanting to stay at the Ritz for a long time so we stayed for our 35th anniversary. Driving up to the place, it is magnificent and stunning. The lobby is beautiful with lots of marble and decor. Check-in was a breeze with very helpful and friendly staff. The restaurant was great with lots of choices and good service.... More

If you are in Riyadh for business then you simply must try to visit the Ritz Carlton. The building is awesome. Ornate. Grand. Majestic. The dining hall is spacious and the food on offer is astounding. So much and all beautifully presented. Recommend the friday brunch.

This hotel is Ultra luxurious and just like a palace of the kingdom. Big rooms are full of light. High level of service. Very good restaurants. Magnificent Spa. The only short come is that it is out of the city and you need to ask for car with driver to commute to the city center. No taxis available.

The title of the review says it all. This hotel was spotlessly clean. The free (with our room rate) breakfast was fantastic. The gym is more than adequate (and has high ceilings, Concept 2 Rower, Pullup bar, plenty of floor space, and lots of other machines). The room has plenty of power outlets, comfortable/quiet A/C, large bathroom/shower/tub, wired and wireless... More

Bit like a OTT Vega hotel, but with no bars and lacking a happy soul. Everyone was anxious to serve, yet they were all terrified of doing something wrong so checked everything If they relax and enjoy their job - the atmosphere would return and the place would move up 200%. Staff cannot function when they are full of fear

Words can not describe how beautiful this hotel is. By far one of the best hotels I have stayed at. We used the Royal suite and it was huge. 4500 square feet with two bedrooms, formal dinning room, office and sitting room. A full kitchen and butler to go along with the room. The staff is the most professional I... More

The out looking of the place is incredible. The service is good. I have been only to their restaurants. Orjowan restaurant is amazing I really recommend it. The Italian restaurant isn't that great and the prices are a little too high. The bowling area (basement) is amazing.....
