Ritz-Carlton Coming to Rancho Mirage

Travel agents will soon have another Ritz-Carlton property to sell. Ritz-Carlton, Rancho Mirage will open in Dec. 2007 and feature 262 resort rooms, a 25,000 square-foot spa and 154 residences. The project is a $500 million transformation of the site's current property, The Lodge at Rancho Mirage. "The opening of the Ritz-Carlton, Rancho Mirage marks a return for our company to one of the United States' most charming and vibrant towns, Palm Springs," said Simon Cooper, Ritz-Carltons president and COO. "The design of the resort, and the addition of so many desirable recreational attractions, will bring both leisure and group business to this showplace." Ritz-Carlton currently operates five properties in California, with a project in Lake Tahoe slated to open in 2009. Travel agents can begin booking the Ritz-Carlton, Rancho Mirage in advance of the December opening. Visit [www.ritz-carlton.com] for more information.
