Puttin' on the Ritz

A couple of other Ritz's, that is.

The top linen card, the Ritz of Muldraugh, Kentucky, is advertised as being "completely air-conditioned," and as having a "clean rest room."  It specialized in "Southern style cooking for tourists."

The Ritz Plaza on the bottom is located in Terre Haute, Indiana.  It was right next to the Howard Johnson's, and had RCA 21" televisions in all the rooms, not to mention wall-to-wall carpeting.

Two great examples aspiring, but not quite reaching the caliber of the real Ritz's, which were the hotels in the Ritz-Carlton chain starting way back in 1918!

I like the split view of the bottom Ritz showing a good view of the motel, sign and room interior.

Although any motel that had to advertise it had "clean rest rooms" makes you pause, doesn't it?!

I agree with VioletSky. lol "crean rest rooms" makes one wonder...
