Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach Puts Guests on Spring Training Field
Pitchers and catchers have reported to camps, and if you know what that means, a new package from the Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach will probably appeal, at least for fans of the Cardinals or Marlins. The hotel has teamed up with Roger Dean Stadium, in Jupiter, Florida, to offer a "Play Ball Package" stacked with family-friendly on-the-field coolness.
The $799 per night rate looks high at first glance, but the hotel is charging north of $600 a night in March. And this package gets you plenty, including four box seats to a game, batting practice from the stands and on the field with home and visiting teams, a behind-the-scenes clubhouse tour, a spot on-field for the singing of the National Anthem (cue easy Christina Aguilera joke), a ceremonial first pitch for one guest of the group, and photo ops in the dugout for kids under 14.
