Condé Nast Traveler said, “Among hotels chains in Europe and in Africa and the Middle East, The Ritz-Carlton claims the top spot, with rooms getting especially high marks. Little wonder: most Club accommodations come with high-speed internet access, fax machines, and (since most tend to be on upper floors) prime views. Club floors also have private lounges, where guests are served complimentary meals throughout the day, as well as dedicated concierges, who help with everything from shipping packages to making copies.”
