    The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island
    Fernandina Beach, FL
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2720 reviewsTripAdvisor (2720)

    The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island promotes extreme relaxation in a luxurious setting. Though the resort hosts weekly activities that range from paddleboarding excursions to surfing lessons, the serene setting just might seduce you to participate in the area's best extracurricular activity – lounging about in one of the resort's Adirondack chairs. Meanwhile, young families and swooning couples (including some honeymooners) all unanimously agree that the Ritz's staff couldn't be more accommodating. Plus, kids can enjoy an array of children's amenities, such as a kids club, a game room and in-room treats and bedtime stories with a pirate, a princess or the resort's macaw mascot. The par-72 golf course is also a hit, and foodies rave about the award-winning Salt restaurant. Recent guests also attest that the rooms are just as peaceful as the grounds. Enjoy ocean views from your private balcony and get a good night's rest with the 400-thread-count Egyptian Frette linens and goose-down pillows. What's more, accommodations here feature high-tech amenities like high-speed internet access and flat-screen TVs. Keep in mind that the hotel is a bit of a trek from the airport though. Marriott Bonvoy members can also use and earn points by staying here.

    Located less than a mile inland from D.T. Fleming Beach on Maui's northwest coast, The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua  with its epic views of Molokai Island  is popular with travelers in more ways than one. The rooms are spacious and are dressed in a tropical-yet-refined style brought on by yellow and green decor and wrought-iron lanais (Hawaiian patios). Accommodations at this Ritz-Carlton also feature flat-screen TVs, marble bathrooms and high-speed internet access. Past visitors are also bowled over by the quality of this resort's customer service: Guests say that the staff here worked hard to ensure a comfortable stay. While you're here, travelers recommend taking advantage of the pool. And if you're looking to unwind even further, splurge on a treatment at the spa. Others enjoyed the hiking excursions and other outdoor ventures with the Ambassadors of the Environment program. And at the end of the day, refuel with a full plate of fresh cuisine at Hook + Knife at Ulana, one of the resort's six restaurants. Staying here will cost you a pretty penny, especially if you include the $35 daily resort fee. This Marriott-affiliated property participates in the Marriott Bonvoy program, so guests can earn and use points by staying here.

    Free WiFi

    Hugged by the hills of Marana, Arizona – 27 miles northwest of downtown Tucson – this Ritz opts for trendy over tradition, with contemporary art and sleek furnishings dominating the decor. And though The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain might not deliver authentic hacienda living, recent guests don't seem to mind the lack of traditional Southwestern style. (Besides, if you're craving a true taste of the region, you can simply make dinner reservations at CORE Kitchen & Wine Bar.) The spa and pool area make a great setting for some R&R, while golfers give high praise to the 27-hole, Jack Nicklaus-designed course (guests gain access to these amenities after paying a daily resort fee of $50). Travelers also appreciated the low-key elegance of the guest rooms, where plush fabrics feel homey while high-end features (like deep-soaking tubs and private balconies) feel deluxe. Yet despite all of its positive aspects, guests say it's the staff's friendliness that truly makes their stays memorable. Marriott Bonvoy members can also use and earn points by staying here.

    Sweeping mountain vistas and rustic furnishings are just two of the many reasons why guests are drawn to The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe. Others include fantastic customer service, great food and a sumptuous atmosphere. With a ski-in/ski-out location near the shores of Lake Tahoe, California, this Ritz allows visitors prime access to the slopes and two nearby championship golf courses. As for the hotel itself, on-site amenities include a tranquil spa and several gourmet restaurants. As far as lodging goes, recent guests raved about the large rooms, comfy beds and beautiful setting. Rooms and suites adopt a mountain lodge feel with stone fireplaces, wood trim and beautiful views. Guests generally loved their stay here, however, some visitors lamented the resort fee, especially given the hotel's high room rates. Marriott Bonvoy members can use points to keep costs down, though.

    Located on the southern fringes of Chinatown, The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco earns high praise from recent guests, who say that the hotel makes for a convenient choice for both business and leisure travelers. The rooms here are dressed in blue and white and Frette linens, as well as a variety of high-end amenities, such as flat-screen TVs, coffee makers and high-speed internet access. Visitors to this property will also have access to the in-house Spa L'OCCITANE by the Bay and its full list of treatments, as well as the raved-about contemporary Californian cuisine served at Parallel 37. But for many guests, the highlight of staying here was the exceptional level of customer service they received. Visitors say that the employees were friendly and respectful, providing an overall feeling of being treated like royalty (though you may have to shell out like royalty to stay here).

    Like its sister property in Georgetown, this Ritz-Carlton offers no shortage of elegance. And with its enviable location, set in Northwest's Foggy Bottom area just a few blocks north of George Washington University, these stylish digs draw high-power politicos, celebrities and international guests alike. Apart from its star clientele, the Ritz boasts a wide array of amenities, including the acclaimed on-site restaurant, Westend Bistro, a vibrant hot spot known for its flavorful American fare. The Ritz also touts unique property features, such as a 10,000-square-foot ballroom and 16,000 square feet of meeting space. But what guests seem to love the most are the spacious rooms here, which all include large Italian marble bathrooms, sumptuous feather beds, 400-thread-count Egyptian cotton linens and sleek flat-screen TVs.

    If you're looking for a more casual hotel than The Ritz-Carlton, Naples on Vanderbilt Beach Road, consider booking a stay at the homey-but-still-sophisticated Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, situated just a few miles inland. You'll sacrifice the outstanding ocean views of Naples' other Ritz property, but for golf lovers, it's worth it to be closer to the 36-hole Tiburón Golf Club. Those who like to unwind can get a massage at the in-house spa or lay out by the pool. Frequent guests also like the on-site Lemonía restaurant, which serves up regional cuisine with international flavors. And though the resort may be devoid of any ocean-facing rooms, accommodations overlooking the golf course are nonetheless top-notch. Rooms include private balconies, goose-down comforters and European toiletries, not to mention high-speed internet access and flat-screen TVs. This hotel participates in the Marriott Bonvoy program.

    This Ritz in Naples, Florida, is a clear guest favorite. Travelers find its luxurious amenities and attentive staff to be in a class all of its own, even when compared with other top-notch properties. The only thing comparable is its sister property, The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples, which is located approximately 4 miles away (there's a complimentary shuttle that goes to the Tiburón Golf Club at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort). At this Ritz, you can relax at the massive spa and salon, which boasts 30 separate treatment rooms, or work up a sweat in the fitness center. Or, feast away at one of the seven decadent dining options: Recent vacationers describe the on-site Gumbo Limbo restaurant – with its Floridian cuisine – as the perfect place to grab a bite to eat. Some recent guests aren't as complimentary of the rooms, however. Some travelers say the rooms (which feature 42-inch smart TVs and marble bathrooms) are subject to late-night noise. Keep in mind that Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points by staying here.

    This massive Ritz-Carlton resort near the Beaver Creek Ski Resort looks as though it's bursting from the mountainside. Guests love the traditional ski chalet feel here, from the exposed wood beams and stone walls of the lobby to the cozy fireplaces found in many of the guest rooms. For skiers, The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch features an in-house ski and snowboard outfitter and a ski concierge, and the $55 winter resort fee ($30 in the summer) covers high-speed Internet access, shuttle transportation to Beaver Creek Village and access to the resort's fitness classes and sauna, among other services. If the slopes aren't calling your name, spend a day rejuvenating at the 21,000-square-foot Bachelor Gulch Spa while your children participate in one of the resort's kids programs. Then, regroup for dinner; there are three dining options to choose from. The one downside, according to recent visitors, is that things here can get very pricey very quickly. Keep in mind that Marriott Bonvoy members can use and earn points by staying here.

    This Ritz outpost is located about 9 miles southeast of Palm Springs, California, in Rancho Mirage. The hotel's suites feature balconies, stone bathrooms with separate showers and soaking tubs, beds with 400-thread-count Frette linens and Nespresso coffee makers. But with the resort's ample amenities, guests won't want to spend all their time in their rooms. The property has multiple pools and a spa boasting treatments like the Coconut Body Polish and the Sec-He Rock Ritual. Plus, nearby hiking trails and the on-site fitness center offer ample opportunities for exercise. When it's time for a bite to eat, try the casual cuisine at the Air Pool Bar or go for a more upscale meal at  either The Edge Steakhouse or the State Fare Bar & Kitchen. Recent guests said the hotel's setting is beautiful but warn of exorbitant prices for everything from food at the on-site restaurants to the mandatory valet parking.

    The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, Miami is pleasantly decorated, pleasantly staffed and pleasantly placed. It's true that the barrier outpost of Key Biscayne is a bit removed from Miami's activity, but the resort is close to area sights like the Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park and the Miami Seaquarium.

Accommodations at this Ritz-Carlton property are bright and sunny with tropical decor, plush fabrics and ample space for lounging. Recent guests highly recommend requesting an ocean-view room when booking, but no matter which accommodation you choose, you'll find it equipped with amenities like Frette linens, mother-of-pearl bathroom vanities, LCD flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations. And if the well-appointed rooms don't impress you, guests say the staff will blow you away. Keep in mind that this hotel participates in the Marriott Bonvoy program.

    The palatial Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay's jaw-dropping setting atop sea cliffs along the Pacific Coast is hard to beat. As its name suggests, this Ritz-Carlton property is in Half Moon Bay, California, located between San Francisco and San Jose. But the exceptional service is what has most travelers talking: From the congenial front desk staff, to the spa therapists to the restaurant servers, travelers praise the entire staff for its friendliness and efficiency. But that's not all guests have to say. The Ritz's guest rooms earn a thumbs-up for their goose-down bedding, marble bathrooms and spacious floor plans, and those traveling with pets will be pleased to know that accommodations here are animal-friendly. But don't plan on spending too much time in your room. Through the concierge, you can book surf lessons, bird watching excursions, bike rides, Segway tours, horseback rides and even whale watching tours. Back at the resort, you'll find two golf courses, a spa and four eateries. Families like to take advantage of the Ritz Kids Day Program, which includes trips to the beach, as well as movies and s'mores at the fire pit.

Red brick walls hug both the interior and exterior of this property, and cool tones throughout the hotel are reminiscent of the nearby waterfront. The calming color palette extends into the stylish accommodations, which are appointed with 400-thread-count Egyptian cotton linens, flat-screen TVs, minibars and Wi-Fi access (for a fee). Craving more luxury? Retreat to the lavish spa to indulge in a rejuvenating massage. However, what really sets this Ritz apart  aside from its top-notch amenities  is its elegant, relaxed ambiance. Guests can't stop raving about the contemporary, airy design of The Living Room lobby lounge, which features an inviting, wood-burning fireplace. Visitors also exalt Degrees Bistro, the Ritz's intimate dining venue that specializes in gourmet American fare. Keep in mind that this hotel participates in the Marriott Bonvoy program.

    Located near the Museum of Art, the Dallas edition of the luxurious Ritz-Carlton brand goes beyond just offering many of the amenities you'd expect from a five-star hotel. For instance, this hotel boasts not just a pool, but a saline-treated rooftop pool; and not just facials and massages, but a 12,000-square-foot spa. But guests say that the rooms alone are worth The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas' high price tag. Spacious and elegant, these high-end digs come equipped with 400-thread-count linens and iPod docking stations, not to mention HD televisions and fully stocked minibars. If peanuts and cookies won't tide you over, make reservations at Fearing's Restaurant; previous visitors said that the eatery deserves its numerous accolades thanks to its gourmet American cuisine. But while most recent guests were satisified, a few say the service wasn't up to par for a Ritz property. Because of The Ritz-Carlton's affiliation with Marriott, member's of the company's loyalty program can trade in their rewards points for extra perks.

    The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale does not disappoint. The hotel's modern decor is accented with art deco touches, the lobby is crafted out of gorgeous marble, and private balconies adjoin all guest rooms and suites. Along with the ocean or Intracoastal Waterway views, rooms also boast leather furniture, flat-screen TVs and spacious marble bathrooms. Some travelers recommend requesting rooms with ocean vistas, as Intracoastal Waterway-facing rooms are situated next to a building with air conditioning units that can be loud and unsightly. Guests can't quite determine what they like most about this hotel, praising the Ritz's posh perks like a fitness center that overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway, an 8,500-square-foot spa and a heated infinity pool with poolside service. But there are two points all reviewers seem to agree on: Both the beachfront Fort Lauderdale location and the outstanding service receive high marks across the board. However, keep in mind that all guests are charged a daily $40 resort fee. Plus, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points by staying here.

    Even in a city like New Orleans, where hotels wear quirky like a badge of honor, the typicalness of this Ritz branch sits well with travelers. Sitting on the edge of the French Quarter, the Ritz keeps things distinctly local with decor that's reflective of the Garden District's antebellum mansions. Guests report that the rooms are pristine, boasting neoclassical furnishings, Italian marble baths, flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and floor-to-ceiling windows. Recent lodgers recommend booking a room in the front of the hotel if you want to avoid the Canal Street din. Staying true to its roots, the Ritz also offers two eateries with distinct NOLA flavors. And if you need a break from The Big Easy's rowdy atmosphere, unwind at the hotel's day spa. Yes, this Canal Street hotel is expensive, but many say it's more than worth shelling out the cash. And if you're a Marriott Bonvoy member, you can earn or score complimentary extras by choosing to stay here. Still, some recent guests note that this hotel doesn't live up to the Ritz-Carlton standards they are used to in terms of service.

    Lovers of the Ritz-Carlton brand are very much impressed by the Sarasota version. Even though they've come to expect top-notch service, plush rooms and classy ambience from these properties, travelers still can't stop gushing over the excellent customer service and the close attention to detail. At this Marriott-affiliated property, accommodations impress with amenities like private balconies, goose-down pillows and 55-inch flat-screen TVs. The resort also boasts an 18-hole Tom Fazio-designed golf course (15 miles off-site). For non-golfers, The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota provides tennis courts; but if you'd rather kick back and relax, you'll also find a pool, a spa and a beach club (a 3-mile complimetary shuttle ride away).

    Sitting just one block from the Spectrum Center in downtown Charlotte, this Ritz lives up to its brand's name. The hotel's muted wood tones are offset by large, colorful examples of contemporary art, while the spacious guest rooms house oversized beds and large bathrooms. All accommodations are also equipped with iPod docking stations, work desks and two flat-screen TVs one in the bedroom and one in the bathroom's mirror, though there is a fee for Wi-Fi.

For many, the hotel's spa – which offers a diverse treatment menu, as well as a peaceful indoor pool seals the deal on a great stay. For others, it's the hearty French cuisine served at BLT Steak (BLT standing for Bistro Laurent Tourondel), not to mention the confectionary creations found at Bar Cocoa.

    Renovated in 2017 and sitting in downtown Denver, The Ritz-Carlton is surrounded by some of the city's top things to do. Recent guests love that it's just a short walk to Coors Field, the 16th Street Mall and Larimer Square, meaning it's a great jumping-off point for leisure travelers.
