Why We Love It

  • Fresh from an extensive renovation completed in 2015, the Ritz is the only AAA 5-Diamond hotel in town
  • The 1900's building is quite grand but interiors are chic with high-tech touches like "virtual concierges" in the lobby
  • Cable cars stop right in front of the hotel, and a complimentary town car service makes it convenient to explore the city
  • Past guest rave about the service and food

"Stunning tribute to beauty" -- Fodor's
