Ritz-Carlton, the worlds most luxurious prison, in the Saudi capitol of Riyadh has reopened its reservation system for new bookings effective on valentines day (February 14, 2018).

This must have been very unfortunate situation for Marriott. They had to throw out the paying guests when the Saudi government took the hotel over and communication lines were cut off too.
