Ritz Paris is arguably the best and the most legendary of all of them and the whole Paris area and can easily be the top 10 best hotels in the world. I hope I can afford their Imperial Suite.

yes, for a french, to say only "ritz" (don't need city name or even that it is an hotel) everyone is aware of it ... Each room of the hotel is fully revonated and redecorated every year (to be as close as possible of demands and world tastes) ... A room can be fully redesigned in 1 month if we ask to the hotel, VIPs do it often when they stay few months... VIPs can also give their own furnishments if they want to, the directive of the hotel is "feel at home" ...

I like all of them except the one in Cape Town. From where is the Ritz hotel chain from?

Ritz-Carlton is owned by Marriott but I'm not sure where the company originated.

I like so much the Ritz Hotels from LOndon , Paris , Madrid and Barcelona because these buildings are more beautiful than other Ritz Hotels.
[My opinion!]

I noticed on this site there is a thread for Ritz Hotels and one for Carlton Hotels. Ritz means Ritz-Carlton and Carlton is an entirely different company. Is this correct?

Vancouverite: are those town houses directly to the right of the tower and are they already there or part of this project?

Re: The "townhouses" to the right.

That is actually the podium of an office tower that is out of frame. Here is a snap taken from the construction webcam of another new tower across the street. At the top of the frame you will see the two-storey podium of the office building beside the new Ritz-Carlton. A old seven-storey office building is being demolished on the site where the new Ritz-Carlton will be built. Upon completion it will be the second tallest building in the city at 183 metres. The building under construction across the street will be the city's new tallest at 197 metres.


* photo taken from the Living Shangri-La webcam on August 12th 2007 site.

As an interesting aside, that convoy of white trucks is the unmistakable sign of a movie being shot somewhere nearby. Vancouver is the largest centre for film production in North America after Los Angles and New York. About a billion dollars worth of film and television is shot in Vancouver annually. Seeing those "white truck convoys" lumbering back and forth is an interesting part of living here and it is not unusual to turn a corner anywhere in the city and find yourself in the midst of a "shoot".
