The Ritz is an awful hotel and I would never recommend anyone going there. The FS and Bulgari are the best hotels in the city.

They are both great properties- FS Prague's renovation really upped the quality of the property and the experience. Of the two, I would say the FS Gresham Palace is a more iconic property. However,...

I have never particularly liked any Las Vegas hotel, but I had a decent experience at the MO and the Four Seasons. I would never stay at the Wynn again in my life.

Really? :rolleyes: That's news to me. Certainly, the RC not a horrendous place to stay by any stretch of the imagination. But, there are far better places to the stay in my experience.

At least someone adores the RC Georgetown, I had a horrendous stay there. The FS in Georgetown is the only play to stay in DC according to my book.

I am not bothered by the 'antlers'. I stayed at the property before the renovation and it was shabby and a complete disaster. Morgan's photos make me actually want to return and stay at the property...
