Are the oceanfront bluffs of Dana Point less peaceful and unspoiled these days? The Ritz-Carlton resort, perched atop those bluffs, has been dropped from the list of top 20 resort hotels published annually by Andrew Harper's Hideaway Report, which bills itself as "a connoisseur's worldwide guide to peaceful and unspoiled places." The Ritz, which fell from No. 15 to No. 38, had been in the top 20 since 1987, according to the newsletter release recently.

Come summer, tourists who descend upon Disneyland, South Coast Plaza, the Ritz-Carlton and other Orange County attractions will be greeted by clean-cut, well-groomed employees whose appearance has been scrutinized right down to their neatly trimmed fingernails. To cultivate and protect their squeaky-clean images, these popular establishments have had to set up grooming policies, and some enforce their dress codes with military zeal.

Orange County has for years been one of the nation's top vacation destinations. Then in 1991, the Persian Gulf War, recession and cool summer temperatures combined to zap occupancy at the county's major hotels. The luxurious Ritz-Carlton in Dana Point has felt the chill too. General Manager Henry E. Schielein, who joined the Ritz in 1986, has shaved expenses, cut employee hours and taken other steps to try to cope with the downturn.

The napkin gets tucked under the collar, mes amis, not folded in the lap, because this is serious eating . You can't be sozzled and sit at this table, either, and if you haven't finished your wine course by the time the corresponding food course is finished, too bad. Off with the wine. And absolutely no smoking until the cigars and the cognac come out. No talk of business or personal affairs, politics or religion. No networking, no schmoozing.
