I recently stayed at the Ritz Carlton Huntington for two separate trips in August.
This is a very nice hotel with nice grounds in a nice neighborhood. However, it is not your typical Ritz. Those who stay at Ritz Carlton's regularly should be aware of some key differences.
However, if you're looking for a high-quality hotel that's a step above the rest, this would be a good choice.
Very well appointed. Standard design and amenities to other Ritz Carltons
The service is a notch below other Ritz Carltons but still good. The key difference is that many of the workers seem to be young locals, so they may not be as integrated with the Ritz Carlton culture.
Example: A bellman counted his tips right in the middle of the lobby!
Common Areas: The gardens make for a nice walk. And it was nice to see people tossing a football on the main lawn. The pool is smaller than many, but is still very nice and good service
Dining: Exquisite - The Dining Room features award winning quicinse and the Cheff is excellent. The Terrace menu is better than most hotel cafes.
High Tea in The Lobby Lounge was very nice, but service wasn't great.
Overall: The Pasadena area is a fun find. And the Ritz Carlton Huntington is a nice location. Totally recommended, but I can understand that those who regularly stay at 5-star hotels may find room for improvement.
