The Ritz Carlton has long been regarded as a 5-star hotel chain. That rating and reputation was earned decades ago. What has Ritz done for me lately … today?
The mattress in my room had a sag in it. And, when I moved, on occasion I would hear that ‘boing’ sound of a mattress spring. Upon investigation, the mattress had a thick pad covering, incased in a plastic or cellophane. The towels appeared to be thick, but were rough and scratchy … like they had been starched. The Ritz bathrobe was thin … with the feeling of having been starched.
The main entrance to the Ritz is on Peachtree Street. The doors to that entrance are locked between 10:00 and 10:30 pm. There is no sign to inform you about the locked doors, nor as a hotel patron are you informed of the locked doors. As I was returning from some Atlanta nightlife, and couldn’t enter via the fixed or revolving doors, a passerby was kind enough to inform me that the doors were locked at night and that I had to go around the building to the automobile drive-up entrance to enter.
The hotel staff were courteous. I had a very enjoyable meal and cocktails at its restaurant (Atlanta Grill) and lounge (Lumen – Lobby Bar), which are rated separately. But, the best thing this Ritz has going for it right now is location. It has a great downtown location less than ½ block from the Peachtree Center Metro Station. Should I return, it would be because of location. This is closer to a 3- than a 5-Star joint.
