When it was a birthday the place I wanted to be was Boston. Last January, I stayed in the new and wonderful Ritz Carlton White Plains. So, the first hotel I looked to stay anywhere was the Ritz Carlton. Upon arrival, I noticed the relatively small lobby, and one doorman manning the doors (the website did show 2). The bell-hop was friendly, but he did not give us a tour of the room, or how to use the very minor technology in the water closet ( they did this in the Ritz Carlton White Plains). I am not sure how old the pictures of the room on the website are, but not what we stayed in. All in all, it was outdated, and while the service was five-star, I just do not see a real hotel with a trace to Ceaser Ritz.
