Indulgent luxury and sumptuous surroundings await guests at Ritz-Carlton hotels and resorts. The legacy of Ritz-Carlton begins with celebrated hotelier Cesar Ritz -- the "king of hoteliers and hotelier to kings” -- whose philosophy of hospitality redefined the luxury hotel experience in Europe in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The service is legendary, the atmosphere warm and relaxed, and the ambiance of each property embraces the uniqueness of the local culture. Several of the hotels are historic landmarks, such as the Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco.
Dining options range from al fresco casual to gourmet candlelight, and afternoon tea is served in the lobby. Full-service spa facilities feature elegant treatment rooms, saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools and relaxation lounges. Many Ritz-Carlton golf courses are designed by the most respected names in golf.
