If you travel in China these days, particularly in the big cities where there are tourists and overseas visitors, there are big banners in Chinese with a slogan to encourage the citizens to behave in a civilised manner. You can draw your own conclusions as to whether there is such a problem in China.
At this hotel however, there is no need for such slogans. This is as civilised and refined a Ritz-Carlton as any other in the world, which puts it in stark contrast to the other so called luxury hotels in this bustling and up and coming city.
The secret of the success of this Ritz-Carlton, IMHO, lies in the professionalism and efficiency of its staff. They are competent and intelligent. You might say surely that is a good thing. For you and me perhaps, but this efficiency and professionalism put off the nouveaux riches. To make them even more uncomfortable, the decor and the atmosphere are deliberately underwhelming. Neither the place nor the staff make you feel you are a millionaire.
If you are insecure and want to feel that you have made it, this is not the place for you. On the other hand, if you want to be at ease and want to be treated as an ordinary person, this is a fabulous place. In China, there are not many places that regard wealth and status with a similar disdain. Everyone is treated as if he or she is the most important person.
