The epitome of swanky sophistication, this hotel in the heart of Uptown sports marble floors and tables, waterfalls, aquariums of fire, rich woods and sultry fabrics highlighted with the splendid colors of exotic flowers and mural-sized artwork all enhanced with poignantly elegant lighting. And thats just the lobby. This five-star hotel has everything you would expect: valet parking, concierge service, a wellness center and a top-notch restaurant. It also has something you wouldnt expect: a green roof. The roof of the Ritz-Carlton is covered with four inches of top-soil supporting low-growth vegetation that helps with water run-off, insulation and is home to an herb garden and bee hives for the hotels culinary pursuits.
