Ritz Carlton or student dorm? Can you tell the difference?

Not so long ago I read an article How did colleges become country clubs? commenting on the way that colleges have been developing luxury facilities to attract students. As this is a real estate blog, I will not comment about any possible link between luxury new facilities and soaring student debt, but I can say that I was stunned by these photos.

Of the photos below, two are from College Campuses and one from a Ritz Carlton. You can enter your guess as to which is the Ritz Carlton in the comment section below the post.
