“We are thrilled to collaborate with Hearst Magazines Digital Media to showcase The Ritz-Carlton experience through the lens of five different writers and directors,” said Lisa Holladay, Global Brand Leader for The Ritz-Carlton. “By selecting up and coming talent, we hope to create a unique platform to showcase their art, as well as new and interesting perspectives of a stay with The Ritz-Carlton. We look forward to working with Hearst to capture The Ritz-Carlton experience on film, from our signature design to the legendary service provided by our Ladies and Gentlemen.”
