The service at the hotel was top notch but we were disappointed that the main restaurant “The Edge” was closed as were the spa and workout facilities. Plus the pool decks were often dirty with old drink cups and food remnants.

So Ive always thought of The Ritz Carlton as a high end top notch resort..... well i guess times have changed you are paying high end resort fees but getting 3 star at best...I love the high desert area and visit 8 to 10 times a year and have gone to some amazing places and some not so amazing. but always kinda knew what to expect, but this trip to the Ritz has thrown a wrench in it for me. rooms are average ,amenities are sub par, the property although in a great location just feels like it was a courtyard hotel and they placed a Ritz Carlton sign on it drinks at the pool are premix and you can taste it. I do have to say that the staff that helped me were very helpful and courteous. The in room dining was very good no complaints there. Family pool, no entertainment for kids other than the obvious pool, I mean sell some inflatables , trust me well bye them.....not enough umbrellas for the guest, i mean it was 120 degrees, no joke. i had to get upset at a employee at the pool and vent to him, which was obviously not his fault and i told him me being upset was not at him, he ran around till he finally got me a umbrella and which i tipped him, that he greatly deserved. Restaurant was fully committed so then what ?? luckily as I said room service was really good . in the end I guess times have changed and so has the Ritz, it no longer has the prestige i once remember. also so you understand my frustration 2 days cost me $2500

Hotel was very clean and neat. It is located in an exclusive area; hence, nice and quiet. Rceptionist and concierge staff were all very polite. Wish I could have stayed longer to enjoy this hotel.

My wife and I have been coming here for years. Why? Because of the service and the Edge restaurant. (We were engaged there) But neither was there this trip. If it wasn’t for Joe, it would have been a :(. There are some businesses that shouldn’t open with limited staff and options during Covid and this is one of them. I WANT to blow money there and I can only get room service and evening then it took over an hour. The real disappointing experience is not getting ANYONE on the phone. I expect that at a motel 6 but not the Ritz. The staff tried desperately to keep with their training and standards but they were clearly overloaded for the few guests they had. Waited 45 min for a drink at the pool. Geez Food was good and as I said staff really tried but if it wasn’t for the memories I don’t think we would come back for the 1k I dropped in 2 days. I hope this is not due to Marriot influence. I will chalk this up to Covid and trying to open too early with not enough staff. If in the future we go again (and we will) and this remains the same we will have to find a new mini break property that values service. The Ritz stands for something, don’t let that fade away folks. Thx
