The Ritz Carlton is a fine hotel centrally located next to the City Hall complex. The hotel lobby was originally a bank and is located within an enormous marble rotunda surrounded by magnificent pillars. A bar with overhead large screen TVs is located along the far wall and the center of the lobby has been converted into a lounge. The 10Arts by Eric Ripert dining venue is located in s screened area adjacent to the lobby. The hotel common areas are most impressive and abuzz with activity.
Service is the hotel’s hallmark. The staff is competent and very pleasant. Check-in is concluded with a complimentary glass of champagne. The concierge was particularly helpful and resourceful in securing our last-minute dinner reservation on a night when the center city was particularly full of tourists and activity.
The rooms are located in an adjacent tower. We were upgraded to a mini-suite located on a corner of the building. It was tastefully appointed and outfitted with quality furnishings. The bathroom and a short hallway separated the bedroom and sitting area. Both rooms were outfitted with large flat panel TVs. The tiled bathroom, while quite compact, had a separate walk-in shower and bath tub. The linens were of good quality.
Breakfast service at 10Arts was exemplary and the food preparation first-rate. The only cautionary note for this hotel is a high floor should be requested. Our room was located on the tenth floor and we experienced a considerable amount of street noise throughout the night.
