Plans have been recently announced to convert the Seville Hotel into a new Ritz-Carlton Club and Residences. The new development will consist of three oceanfront residential towers featuring 44 fractional ownership Club residences, as well as 94 whole ownership Residences.
The Miami Beach location is through a joint partnership with Miami-based developer Lionstone Development and real estate developer and brokerage Fortune International.
Prices will be announced next year. Residence real estate reservations are scheduled for release in early 2006, with fractional ownership reservations following in mid-2006.
The Private Residence Club promises to deliver something no other home can offer, five-star service from the world’s premier hospitality company.
The Ritz-Carlton takes customer service VERY seriusly. In the early 90’s, I worked at the Ritz-Carlton in Marina Del Ray, CA. Everyday, at a pre-shift meeting, we had to recite this credo to our co-workers:
The Ritz-Carlton Hotel is a place where the genuine care and comfort of our guests is our highest mission.
We pledge to provide the finest personal service and facilities for our guests who will always enjoy a warm, relaxed, yet refined ambience.
The Ritz-Carlton experience enlivens the senses, instills well-being, and fulfills even the unexpressed wishes and needs of our guests.
Funny, I can still recite it like was yesterday.
