Walking into the penthouse suite at the top of the Ritz-Carlton, Herzliya, made us gasp with delight. It wasn’t the jaw-dropping view of the marina and the Mediterranean or the impeccable style, or even the sheer size of the rooms. It was a small blueframed photo of our three grandchildren that was placed nonchalantly on the side table in the living room, as if a part of the regular décor, which brought tears of joy to our eyes.
“We wanted to put a smile on your face,” said Suzanne, beaming. “This is the Ritz- Carlton style,” she added.
