The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas is giving a little something extra to guests who stay in its high-roller Ritz-Carlton Suite, considered the hotel's most desirable accommodation.
Beginning December 1, any guest who stays there will get complimentary round-trip transportation between the hotel and the airport – either DFW Airport or Love Field. The limo is either a private sedan or town car, and it is a first for guests.
You undoubtedly know all about the Ritz-Carlton Suite, so we'll just remind you that it's the 2,385-square-foot abode on the eighth floor that's become the room to rent for visiting royalty, heads of state, entertainment luminaries, business leaders and professional athletes.
You surely already know its layout — that it has a master bedroom, living room with vaulted ceilings, private study, and dining room that seats eight. You've had the caterer deliver to its pantry/kitchen with private service entrance.
You've indulged in the large master bath with dual vanities, dual TVs, whirlpool, "experience" shower and separate powder room. You've gazed out upon the spectacular floor-to-ceiling panoramic views of Dallas it offers from three sides.
You've perhaps even used its option to connect to additional luxury rooms, creating a private, multi-suite wing for privacy-conscious guests — like an exclusive, contained compound accessible only to registered guests. You're such a privacy nut! Gatherings in the suite have included international summits, bridal events, homecomings for military veterans, family reunions and stays by Make-A-Wish Foundation recipients.
The room costs $5,000 per night. Well worth it, of course — but you can see where a free limo would help out a little in the wallet department.
