The Ritz-Carlton Rancho Mirage will begin taking reservations Monday for a planned May 15 reopening. The luxury hotel began life in 1988 as a Ritz, then morphed into the Lodge at Rancho Mirage but was slated to become a Ritz again when it was felled by a souring economy. Its reopening was derailed by the collapse of financial backer Lehman Brothers, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in September 2008. In its newest incarnation, the property atop a 650-foot bluff overlooking the Coachella Valley will have 244 rooms and suites and a new two-story spa. Room rates in what the hotel is calling an "Opening Celebration Package" will begin at $379.

In the Travel Section of May 24, Shirley Slater and Harry Basch wrote about tea dancing at the Ritz in London. We made a special trip to London from Paris. Everything in their article was correct except the price. They wrote that it was 8.50 (about $14 U.S.). The price posted at the door June 4 read 14.50 each, about $50 U.S. per couple. We had tea and danced and loved every minute. MR., MRS. CHARLES THOMAS Santa Monica

On New Year's Eve, Beccy Rogers donned a black suit with a fur collar. She selected sparkling earrings and a necklace, and finished the look with a glitzy clip in her long hair, pulled back into a tight bun. She has welcomed the new year in the outfit for as long as she has worked at Newport Beach's iconic Ritz Restaurant & Garden. But after 30 years, this would be her last. The Ritz, which first put down roots near the Newport Pier in 1977 and then moved years later to the more upscale Newport Center, will shut its doors Feb. 15, the victim of changing tastes and a landlord who wants to move in "a different direction.

It's not every day that Los Angeles welcomes a new addition to its skyline. And this week, the city did it in style with a gala for the 54-story Ritz-Carlton hotel-condo tower that is the centerpiece of L.A. Live and opens for business next month. The guest of honor was Tim Leiweke, president and chief executive of AEG, which built the $2.5-billion L.A. Live and has been at the center of the effort to develop the area around Staples Center into a sports and entertainment hub. The blue-hued tower is a big part of the plan.

Waiting for me to arrive for lunch, giddy as schoolgirls playing hooky, my mother and her friends were having a grand time in the bar of the Ritz. Not the posh hotel, but the newly expanded Newport Beach restaurant, the glitzy spot that has welcomed a veritable Who's Who of Orange County swells. At the entrance, smartly dressed valets whisk away your fully loaded Land Rover or Land Cruiser.

Regarding the Ritz restaurant removing the nudes ("Nudes No Longer Dress Bar," March 8): I'm a regular at the Ritz and lunch with a group of women who love those nude paintings. They make us feel like we can eat as much as we like and still look good (thanks to the Rubenesque style!). Don't our opinions count as much as these so-called businesswomen? I say that any woman who can't close a deal because of a painting is not a real businesswoman. Let them eat at the Mariners Elementary School cafeteria with the little girls.

Los Angeles-based Crystal Cruises is throwing a lifeline to the gadget-challenged: an onboard tech concierge to help guests with all types of personal electronics. The concierges will provide free consultations to passengers who visit the ships' computer centers beginning this month aboard Crystal Symphony and in May aboard Crystal Serenity. Niche concierges have long been big in the hotel world. The Ritz-Carlton began offering tech concierges in the 1990s in Asia. Ritz properties now have many other types of specialty concierges, including ones for romance, shopping and medical issues.

In the down-market neighborhood cafe where he would sit by himself and sip wine or beer laced with lemonade, Henri Paul, the man who drove the car in which Princess Diana died, was treated by the staff as a "monsieur" --a real gentleman. "I thought he was an airline pilot," waitress Myriam Lemaire said of the balding, muscular Breton who lived next door to the 10-table Le Bourgogne on the Rue des Petits Champs. "Never did he speak of his work."

Itching to get out on the slopes? The on-the-mountain Ritz-Carlton at Northstar offers an early winter package that includes a room and two lift tickets. Prices start at $299 midweek and $399 on weekends, a good savings at this luxury hotel for skiers and snowboarders who want a pre-holiday getaway. The deal: This isn't a budget ski motel bargain but rather a good price on luxe digs for those who want to sample the AAA Five Diamond resort and save on daily lift tickets. The First Tracks Ski Package at the ski-in-ski-out Lake Tahoe-area hotel is offered during the first two weeks of December.

There's a place in Abu Dhabi where now you can order up milkshakes made with camel milk, locally sourced, of course, in strawberry, chocolate, date, banana or mint flavors. Or an iced camel milk latte. Mohammad Daoud proudly claims the title "camel milk mixologist" at the newly opened Ritz-Carlton Abu-Dhabi, Grand Canal. The shake-it-up wizard says he came up with the idea of muddling ingredients for his smoothie-like creations that cost about $6 each as a special Ramadan treat.

For the third time in a decade, a luxury retreat at Lake Las Vegas has a new name: the Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa . The hotel opened in 2003 as a Ritz-Carlton , and became Ravella in February 2011.   The 349-room hotel sits on the shore of Lake Las Vegas, a 320-acre man-made creation that is the centerpiece of a master-planned community that counts Celine Dion among its homeowners.

It was one of those quintessential moments that fix a time and place forever in the mind. Just before twilight at the Ritz's Sunday afternoon tea dance the society jazz band struck up "Puttin' On the Ritz," and the well-dressed Londoners, some of them old enough to remember the Blitz, some of them born after the Beatles came to fame, stepped out onto the floor while a Tatler photographer discreetly snapped pictures of London's latest proof that everything old is new again.

The Ritz Carlton, Dove Mountain covers 850 desert acres of saguaro cactus in the foothills of the Tortolita Mountains north of Tucson. The resort, which includes a spa and pool area, has some nice packages with breakfast or resort credits to enhance a fall or winter desert getaway. The deal: The Ritz Carlton's website features lots of packages and special offers, but these two turned out to be good values when I tested them. The Bed and Breakfast rate serves up daily breakfast for two at the hotel's CORE Kitchen or by room service for just $10 more than the standard room rate.

More than half the units in downtown L.A.'s most prominent residential tower are finally sold as the region's long-suffering condominium market turns around, industry observers said. Foreign investors and wealthy Southern California residents in search of a pied-a-terre have helped drive sales over the halfway mark at the Ritz-Carlton Residences at L.A. Live, developer AEG said. The condos were planned during the housing boom of the mid-2000s, when AEG decided to crown its $2.5-billion L.A. Live entertainment, restaurant, office and hotel complex with 224 condos that would be serviced by the Ritz-Carlton hotel.
