I brought my heart to San Francisco ...

Happy Anniversary (c) 2018 by David Ourisman, all rights reserved

... to celebrate our anniversary, and this is the welcome amenity that the ladies and gentlemen of the Ritz Carlton San Francisco prepared for us. Four macaroons and two celebratory cupcakes, all on a bed of yellow, pink, and orange chocolate shavings.

Let us stay with you — more than just a trademark — it's the Ritz-Carlton way of helping guests celebrate their special moments. Walking down the hall towards the Club lounge, I saw a Happy 50th Birthday helium balloon outside another door. Luxury hotels like Ritz Carlton offer more than just a comfortable room. Most important is the warm hospitality of a staff who go the extra mile to make your stay special. So when you book a room at Ritz Carlton, or any luxury brand, be sure to communicate anything you might be celebrating to your luxury travel advisor so that we can pass the information along.

Thank you to the ladies and gentlemen of Ritz Carlton San Francisco for such a special welcome ... and for a room with a view of Coit Tower. (The picture above was taken from the window of our corner Deluxe Club room # 828).
