Las Vegas Ritz Shutting Down Due To Banker Bashing

There's been much talk about some bankers booking all of Wall Street surrounding area's hotel rooms today, but if you want to be really charitable, just move your drunken asses from Stone Street's bar stools and head to Vegas. The Ritz-Carlton, owned by a DB arm, is closing down, due to the "AIG-effect." Maybe if enough people get out there we can save this place.

Ritz-Carlton spokeswoman, Vivian Deuschl, said: "The whole demonisation of luxury meetings and companies pulling back on having their high-end meetings in luxury hotels - this has had a tremendous impact on Las Vegas.
"I can't think of another destination that has had to defend itself more against comments from politicians."
