And it can all be accomplished within 24 hours.
This place is only 45 minutes from home. It sits on the water’s edge of the world’s largest man-made
harbor, and one of the most beautiful in Los Angeles. And the staff, who must first pass a rigorous
three-month interview process before becoming a part of your personal team, have been working to prepare
this place just for you. (See “What it Takes to Work for the Ritz-Carlton”
An Ultimate Sleep Experience of handcrafted sheets, luxurious bedding and plush mattresses. Four food
presentations daily of chef-prepared tapas. Bulgari amenities, thick bathrobes, and a gorgeous swimming
pool with personal attendants.
All-inclusive at a comparable cost to two nights at a family-style hotel.*
Where is it? The Ritz-Carlton, Marina del Rey--the only waterfront AAA Five Diamond property in Los Angeles.
Once known as the hotel reserved for the artistocratic, the Ritz-Carlton hotels have revamped their image
to appeal to the young, hip crowd of Gen X and we Baby Boomers who don’t want to grow up (or grow old). Yet,
the hotel is still able to retain it’s allure that is Ritz-Carlton. Each Ritz-Carlton property takes on the
personality of the locale. The theme for Ritz-Carlton, Marina del Rey is fire and water; a theme you will
discover subtly woven into the carpets leading to the ballroom, in the lobby lounge behind the bar, and in
the quiet retreat of the spa.
What remains is the genuinely thoughtful gestures of the Ladies and Gentlemen (staff) who know their guests
as ‘Ladies and Gentlemen.’ This kindness must be experienced to be understood. It may be a cold glass of
water offered to you when re-entering the hotel from a walk around the harbor (“would you care for lemon or lime?”),
a recipe of a favorite menu item sent to your room, or the effort to save dessert for you on Club Level because
the hostess knew you were enjoying a late dinner in Jer-ne.
This is luxury…this is the place you’ll always return, because it feels like home—only better. And you can’t
afford not to make this investment in you.
