It's safe to assume that the term "ritzy" derived from this legendary hotel chain. Our pals at Merriam-Webster define ritzy as "impressively or ostentatiously fancy or stylish" and the Ritz-Carlton South Beach seamlessly combines classic elegance with modern edge. The Ritz is located right off the iconic Lincoln Road and boasts that infamous tanning butler.
