About The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company LLC

Puttin' on the ritz is second nature to this hotelier. The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company operates luxury hotels located in many of the world's most vibrant cities and resort locations. With more than 95 hotels and resorts worldwide, Ritz-Carlton was established in 1983 when real estate mogul and former CEO William Johnson acquired the rights to the name made famous by Swiss hotelier C├ęsar Ritz. Today it is a part of hotel giant Marriott International, operating under that company's luxury segment.


The Ritz-Carlton has been recognized with numerous awards for being the gold standard of hospitality. It operates over 95 hotels through its partners including Bulgari Hotels, The Ritz-Carlton Montreal, The New York Edition, Miami Beach Edition, London Edition, and The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. It also has several brand extensions such as spa development golf, destination club, residences, and leadership center.

Geographic Reach

Headquartered in Maryland, Ritz-Carlton operates more than 95 luxury hotels in some 30 countries in Europe, Africa, Asia, the Middle East and the Americas. It also has global sales organizations in Eastern Region (US), Mid-Atlantic Region (US), Western Region (US), Intermediary Sales (US), Select Account Sales (US), Travel Industry (US), Beijing, Dubai, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, London, Shanghai, Singapore and Tokyo.


In October 2020, the parent company announced it has signed a milestone agreement with Asset World Corp Plc. (SET: AWC) to add four new landmark properties under three world-class brands across Bangkok and Pattaya, Thailand. The multi-property agreement features a Ritz-Carlton Reserve. 

Targeted to open by 2027 in Bangkok's newly revamped Asiatique The Riverfront, the Ritz-Carlton Reserve, Bangkok is expected to serve as a private, ultra-luxury boutique urban resort set on the scenic curve of the Chao Phraya River. With 124 meticulously designed guest rooms, the urban sanctuary will showcase the rich culture, history and heritage of Bangkok's 19th Century maritime trade.
