[photopress:hotels_ritz_carlton_guangshou.jpg,full,alignright]Ritz-Carlton is the quiet performer in luxury hotels. For many traveling executives of the higher levels of management it is the automatic hotel of choice. Now there is the Ritz-Carlton, Guangzhou which is the fourth in China with new openings scheduled for Sanya, Shenzhen, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Macau in the next two years.
Set in the Tianhe District, the Ritz-Carlton, Guangzhou occupies the 20th to 38th floors of a modern building. The hotel offers 351 guestrooms with distinctive amenities and views of the Pearl River. The entry level guestrooms are spacious at 50 square meters.
This is the seventieth Ritz-Carlton and they all have something in common. The first is the daft idea that the word ‘the’ before the title should always be capitalized. Not quite as daft as the way the InterContinental used to insist on Inter.Continental, but close.
The second is the quite amazing staff service.
They truly treat people staying at the hotel as honored guests. The writer can think of individual hotels that achieve this standard but no other chain of hotels that manages it. Quite remarkable.
There is a story which should be followed up that the staff has the right to offer a credit on the spot if something is wrong. It would not surprise me
There are also The Residences at the Ritz-Carlton which are located in the same building as the hotel and accessible by a separate entrance and lobby, The Residences features 91 serviced residences with from one to four bedrooms ranging between 111 to 275 square meters. This is where you would stay if you were going to be there for a long time and did not have to worry about money.
This is also a MICE hotel — for up-market MICE — with more than 1000 square meters of space, including a 648-square-meter ballroom.
