Not the best but certainly not the worst Ritz. Connected to Galleria Mall with plenty of shops and restaurants nearby, but 30 minutes without traffic to DC. New Metro stop on silver line is suppose to open later this month and is walkable (10 minutes) from hotel. Gym is slightly better than normal hotel gym, but is not connected to spa or any locker rooms with steam/sauna. Rooms do not have separate shower even on club level. The club was very small, but also was not crowded. The food was good but pretty limited other than for breakfast. Only vodka was Absolute. Shima and other club concierge staff were very good and seemed to know most guests. The hotel has very inexpensive weekend rates and self parking is free via validation on weekends. Club is on 24th floor (top) and 23rd floor has stair access to 24. I recommend staying on 23 or far away from club entrance as clean up is noisey including squeaky carts wheeled down hallway.
