I booked The Ritz to have a splendid setting in which I could propose to my girlfriend. I could not have picked a better place. The history, quality, surroundings and, most importantly, the service were all of the highest order. The staff literally did everything possible to make the day go smoothly and create a memory that we will re-count for a long time to come.
For the weeks before we arrived, I was emailing the hotel with requests and requirements. I always received a response the same day and nothing was too much trouble. I also received a call from the reservations manager who was genuinely excited at my idea to propose and wished me all the best.
From arrival, the entire experience was exceptional and we were treat like celebrities, even though it was obvious this was probably a once in a lifetime visit. Everything was delivered to the room as I asked and at the time I asked. After the proposal we went out for celebratory drinks and when we returned, rose petals were spread around the room and formed a heart on the newly changed white linen bed. A complimentary bottle of Ritz champagne sat in an ice bucket and romantic music was playing on the television. It really was magical.
I cannot speak highly enough of The Ritz and my fiancé and myself would like to extend our thanks once again for making our engagement so special.
