    I strongly hope they find a solution and that the hotel finds success in the long-term too!

    Here's a reminder what the hotel looks like now as a Ritz-Carlton marketed property: [ as of June 2013 ]

    Not yet, I wonder now about it too, will Gordon Ramsay stay or not, now that the hotel ceases to be a Ritz-Carlton from October, I'm sure we will hear more about the catering operations soon.

    Beautiful building- a shame things are not working out more successfully.

    In other news, Gordon Ramsay has pulled out of his Conrad Tokyo restaurants. No more Gordon Ramsay in Tokyo, for now.
    See the new restaurants at the Conrad Tokyo:
    http://conradhotels3.hilton.com/en/hotels/japan/conrad-tokyo-TYOCICI/amenities/restaurants.html

    Seems to me that the "love affair" between Hilton and Gordon Ramsay came to a sudden end, after the closing of his restaurants in Tokyo, Prague and Dubai @ Hilton / Conrad Hotels. Only the 2 offerings at the Waldorf Astoria Trianon Palace remain now for Gordon R. at any Hilton today.

    Perhaps he is too busy with his TV shows?

    The potential to sell himself on TV seems to outweigh the losses in the "real" world aka. his restaurants. Also many of his new openings are geared towards the casual marketplace, away from Michelin starred cooking.

    There's news that Gordon Ramsay opens up in the future possible restaurants with the investment by David Beckham. This reminds me a bit of the partnership of Marco Pierre White and Frankie Dettori, the famous jockey. Of interest is that, MPV now is slated to open a new restaurant at the Conrad Dubai in September of this year. I wonder, have they ever considered a Gordon Ramsay restaurant instead?

    Also it's rumored that there's a new restaurant in Las Vegas on the horizon at Wynn for GR which would be also "co-starred" by David Beckham.
