Monitoring the Hotel, Spa and Resort industry across Equestria

Special Issue:

The Ritz Charlton Canterlot

June, 2035


Fellow professionals from all branches of the hotel, spa and resort industry,
Dear friends,

For the first time in my tenure as editor-in-chief of this journal, and for the fourth time in the 42 years of this magazine's history, a single property deserves enough space in our journal to consider that an issue is a special issue about them.

The Ritz Charton Hotel, Canterlot, is simply humbling.There is no other way to describe clockwork-perfect service that somehow manages to feel relaxed and homely.

Learn what you can from this issue. The Equestriani industry cannot afford to be so ridiculously outclassed.

Yours truly,

Silver Spoon
