My husband was returning from Afghanistan and I wanted to surprise him with a couple days fo "down time" before bringing him home to "real life". Staying at a Ritz Carlton has been on my bucket list for years and I thought this would be a great opportunity. The military room rate was almost too good to be true. When they learned of the circumstances surrounding our visit, we were upgraded to a 1 bedroom executive suite on the 21st floor. THey had champagne and rose petals delivered complimentary to our room. The room was immaculately clean and well appointed. The staff was beyond professional, accommodating and friendly. We enjoyed a fabulous room service breakfast and worked out in the gym, which was clean and well maintained. We used self-parking which was less expensive than the valet and extremely convenient. The location was convenient to many nice restaurants & shopping. We have been Marriott enthusiasts for years and hope to return to the Ritz Carlton brand of Marriott hotels very soon.
