Butler Stories by Maya Beus for St. Regis
“The Sala Ritz breathes glamour even when it’s absolutely empty and quiet. It’s like a dazzling temple to dancing and parties. You look at the stunning paintings, the gilded ceiling and the marble floor and then you think of that floor being polished daily for over 120 years, by the careful hands of staff, and the expensively slippered feet of the world’s nobility, all having a ball. It’s mind-blowing.”
