Review: Ritz-Carlton Almaty

I had a ~22 hour layover in Almaty, as I was arriving from Incheon at 4:45PM, and departing the following day to Astana at 2:30PM.

I've certainly become more interested in Ritz-Carltons since Marriott's takeover of Starwood was completed, and also since The Ritz-Carlton Rewards® Credit Card started offering a great sign-up bonus of three complimentary nights after completing minimum spend (which can be redeemed at this property).
