8/10 Very good

Disappointing Ritz Carlton experience
Our room was not ready for our 3pm check in. We had to wait an hour to get into our room. This was not good. We were exhausted after 9 hours in airports due to multiple flight delays. But we were given a glass of complementary champagne and decided to go the hotel bistro to enjoy snacks while we waited for our room. Highly recommend the delicious lobster roll! It was a very busy, noisy, crowded Friday night at the hotel. So many loud, unruly children running around. We were celebrating our 37th anniversary and expected a quiet, elegant weekend. It was not to be. Unfortunately, we didn't get to enjoy the private beach resort but there was an hourly shuttle service taking many guests & families there. We decided to drive to St. Armands instead for shopping & dining. The hotel is elegant and clean, and the staff from the concierge to valet were very helpful, but we will stay elsewhere for a more exclusive and relaxing experience next time.

Disappointingly late check in
The hotel room was nice - but I didn’t get my check-in confirmation text (that my room was ready) until nearly 5pm. And the next morning check-out was 11am sharp. So that proved to be a very expensive hotel room rate for very few hours of room usage.
