Chart With All Ritz-Carlton Hotels By Tier

Chart With All Ritz-Carlton Hotels By Tier

22

As most of you probably know by now, The Ritz-Carlton Rewards® Credit Card is offering an incredible welcome bonus:

  • Three complimentary nights at any Tier 1-4 Ritz-Carlton hotel after spending $5,000 within three months
  • 10,000 bonus points after adding an authorized user and having them make a purchase within the first three months

The card has a $450 annual fee, though comes with several perks that help offset it and add significant value, like a $300 annual airline credit, Ritz-Carlton Rewards Gold status (also valid at Marriott properties), a $100 companion airfare discount on domestic travel, etc.

The three complimentary nights earned on The Ritz-Carlton™ Card are valid for redemptions at Tier 1-4 Ritz-Carlton properties, and must be redeemed within 12 months of when they’re issued. You can use all three nights towards a single stay, can make three one night stays, etc. In a post yesterday I shared some of the awesome getaways you could plan within the US using these complimentary nights.

The Ritz-Carlton Rewards and Marriott Rewards programs are separate but more or less equal in terms of benefits. One thing that’s puzzling is that the Ritz-Carlton website doesn’t even have a chart showing which hotels belong in which categories.

Instead, this page of the Ritz-Carlton Rewards website links to the Marriott Rewards website, where you can view hotels by Category & Tier. Now, that’s not exactly difficult, but it does seem like a lot of hoops to jump through in order to see which Ritz-Carlton property belongs to which Tier. On top of that, when you actually click on the individual hotels it doesn’t even redirect you to the individual hotels’ websites, but rather to the Ritz-Carlton homepage.

With that in mind, Tiffany was nice enough to put together a single chart with all Ritz-Carlton Rewards properties listed by Tier. Do keep in mind, however, that complimentary nights earned through The Ritz-Carlton™ Card can only be redeemed at Tier 1-4 Ritz-Carlton properties. That means they can’t be redeemed at Tier 5 properties, or at EDITION properties.

With that in mind, here’s the full chart:

  • 17 Tier 1 properties
  • 18 Tier 2 properties
  • 31 Tier 3 properties
  • 15 Tier 4 properties
  • 13 Tier 5 properties

As you can see, that means there are a total of 94 properties in the Ritz-Carlton Rewards Tier chart. Of those, 13 are Tier 5 properties, and four are EDITION properties. That means you can redeem the three complimentary nights earned on The Ritz-Carlton™ Card at 77 of the 94 Ritz-Carlton Rewards Tier 1-5 properties.

Which Ritz-Carlton properties are your favorites?

    Do NOT get this card!!!
    We had it for 3 years , traveled the world and the US and was not able to use it at ANY Ritz property!
    There was always an excuse why they would not accept it.
    We called the credit card company - to politely voice our concerns -they were rude.
    Finally were able to use it right before they expired, at a Marriot property that cost...

    Finally were able to use it right before they expired, at a Marriot property that cost $186.00 a night. We were down graded from platinum to gold, were not allowed to use the club level or any of the “perks” that were promised!
    We paid a total of $1500.00 for 3 years of credit card membership, spent 5,000.00 in the first three months and got 3 free nights - a $558.00 value and stayed at a hotel we would not ever have stayed at .
    Has anyone who has this card been satisfied with what was promised????
    We feel cheated and will never stay at a Ritz or Marriott again!

    This rewards program is not worth the $$. Very difficult to book free nights, very few places to use airport lounges and frankly, phone service to all calls for Ritz has gone way down. I can't sit on a phone for an hour trying to get an answer or a reservation. Hilton I'm coming back!! And upgrades are no good at other than Ritz properties. Unless you're looking at paying $300-$500 each time you travel this rewards program is not for a working, traveling person.

  3. Adam

    I was just looking at where to use my certs, and noticed the wording on the Tahoe page, too.
    "The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe is a Tier 5 property in The Ritz-Carlton Rewards.

  4. Kimjwajin

    Just tried to book the Ritz Carlton Lake Tahoe using my free night certificates based on this chart and was informed that Lake Tahoe is now a Tier 5 property. Ugh. Please update the chart. Thank you.

  5. Nick

    Would be awesome and incredibly helpful to keep this list up to date considering this post seems to be the only source to get this information. Thanks so much!

    1. Boobaholic

      Any chance of seeing such an offer in the UK ?!

  6. James

    Would be much better if the chart included Marriott category too.

  7. WJM

    Lake Tahoe is now a Tier 5 hotel :(

  8. Dori

    @Aubrey
    AFAIK, Ritz Carlton London isn't part of RC rewards program

  9. Luke Vader

    Good list, thanks Tiffany (and Lucky). We used (2 x 2) free-night certificates from the Hyatt Visa to stay at the Park Hyatt Sydney a month ago. This list will be a great resource if we ever spring for the Ritz-Carlton Visa.

  10. Aubrey

    I can't find the London Ritz (not edition) on this chart or Marriott's chart. Does anyone know the tier? What am I missing?
    If it's 1-4, I'm getting the card!
    Thank you!

  11. Craig B

    The Ritz in Denver should be a Tier 2. The hotel is more on par with Cleveland than Toronto.

  12. Rick Meier

    This might of already been answered....but! So can you use the 3 free nights, use points for the 4th night, and get the 5th night for free? :)

  13. Ku

    Thanks for putting in the time and effort for the list Tiffany! I really appreciate it :)
    Their website always gave me a headache. I will come here for now on when I need to look for Rtiz Carlton information.

  14. Jay

    Thanks for this list! Just what I was looking for!

  15. VirtuosoEric

    What about the Ritz Carlton Reserve properties (Thailand, Bali, Puerto Rico). I assume no points redemptions?

  16. dbeach

    Oh there are more Tier 5s than I thought. I knew Hong Kong was, which is a shame, but I didn't realize there were so many others. Bachelor Gulch and St. Thomas are surprising to me.

    Still on the fence whether or not to get the card. Ritz-Carltons are nice but most of them aren't really my style.

  17. Bob

    My Ritz statement closed yesterday. Right now I am waiting for the 3 free nights to appear in my account and then I am hoping to book the Hotel Arts Barcelona. It's a little strange that they haven't shown up yet even though the statement closed, but I am not too worried yet because the points I earned on that statement haven't shown up yet either

  18. Zippy

    This is a great chart, but Pentagon City is mislabeled, it is in Arlington, VA.

  19. RCB

    This is incredibly helpful! I was going to pass on the card because I assumed the incredibly nice places like the Ritz Aby Dhabi that we stayed at in May were going to be excluded but it's only a Tier 1 property! The tier system makes no sense because that's one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in (and I stay in A LOT of nice hotels) and it's ranked lowest. Very bizarre system.

  20. Tiffany

    My chart is also better than the Marriott Rewards version because the links to the various hotels actually go to the property websites! ;)

    1. lucky

      @ Tiffany -- Ah, good point! Will update post to reflect that as well. Forgot that's another aspect of their chart that annoyed me.
