After being ranked the number one hotel brand in the ‘Best in Business Travel’ survey from Travel + Leisure and Fortune, the rest of the world knows what we know: The Ritz-Carlton knows how deliver to the business travel market.
Of the brand’s 89 properties, it’s the recently opened The Ritz-Carlton Kyoto that we have our eyes on lately… First for its quintessential luxury amenities and award-winning customer service, and second for its iconic location, location, location.
Sitting on the banks of the Kamogawa River with sweeping views of the Higashiyama Mountains and in close proximity to the popular downtown areas, it’s one highly attractive business travel destination in Japan.
A list topper itself (named “#1 City” for years by publications like Travel+Leisure and U.S. Travel Magazine), the city of Kyoto is represented by the property through a fusion of modern design aesthetics and time-honored Japanese hospitality.
It is The Ritz-Carlton Kyoto’s “sense of place” that makes the property one of CEO & Founder Wendy Burk’s favorites, with the authentic gourmet cuisine a close second.
On that note, we suggest starting client dinners with the resort’s signature cocktails and finishing with a sampling of mouthwatering desserts from famous pastry chef Pierre Hermé Parris. For less indulgent meetings, there is a business center and four meeting rooms to choose from, as well as an assortment of semi-private arrangements throughout the property for quick meets.
And in savvy traveler fashion, the luxury hotel brand also has an enhanced mobile app that allows guests to can check in and out, make concierge requests or track charges.
Most importantly, if you book your stay through Cadence, we’ll throw in the savviest part: as an exclusive member of the The Ritz-Carlton STARS Society, we’ll give you a complimentary upgrade, free breakfast each day, free Internet, early check in, late check out, and more… You'll be that much more comfortable during your business trip (and your organization will get that much more value for their travel spend).
