Hotel Introduction
For more than a century the iconic Ritz in London has set the standard in luxury hotels. Conceived by celebrated architects Charles Mewès and Arthur Davis, this international pair designed a French chateau-style work of art with highly original elements such as the copper lions on the roof. The interiors maintain the French inspiration, with Louis XVI details throughout.

The Ritz has been completely restored to its original grace, and guests are treated to its signature grand style and sophistication—from the splendid rooms and suites to the luminous public spaces. The Restaurant, which houses one of the most beautiful dining rooms on the Continent, spa and fitness studio, and elegant meeting rooms are just a few of the many amenities.

The rooms and suites are striking in their spaciousness and design. The gorgeous superior rooms feature the classic Ritz colour palette of blue, peach, pink, and yellow, while the executive rooms include 24 carat gold leaf and antique Louis XVI furnishings. The astounding array of suites epitomize luxury, offering details such as multiple marble bathrooms, butler’s kitchen, and period woodwork.

Dining
The Ritz Restaurant leaves a lasting impression on those who’ve dined there. Decorative elements such as its wealth of chandeliers (requiring a reinforced ceiling to cope with their weight) and the truly astounding cuisine make this a can’t-miss destination. The Palm Court hosts traditional afternoon tea in unforgettable style; it’s everything tea should be, all wrapped up in a breathtaking atmosphere. The Rivoli Bar, with its alabaster, gold leaf, and Lalique glass, is a dramatic art deco jewel.

Spa
The Ritz Fitness Studio features the latest exercise equipment and the expert guidance of resident personal trainer Sarah Wright. The Ritz Salon is an oasis of relaxation on the seventh floor, offering numerous ways to unwind and re-energize. Choose from soothing massages, facials, and reflexology, as well as a full range of beauty services.

Hotel Features
The Ritz has hosted countless celebrities and world leaders, often making history within its distinguished walls. During World War II Churchill, de Gaulle, and Eisenhower used the Marie Antoinette Suite as a venue for Summit Meetings. In the 1950s, American actress Tallulah Bankhead famously sipped Champagne from her slipper during a press conference.

Meetings
Five banqueting rooms are available at the Ritz, each sumptuously decorated and perfect for any occasion. Seven flexible meeting and event spaces can be designed to accommodate receptions, board meetings, classroom learning, or theatre set-ups. In addition to their beauty, the rooms include all of the modern tools necessary for successful meetings. The Burlington Room, for example, has connections for up to six laptops at the central table, a large drop-down screen, and a remote for the lighting, blinds, and audio-visual equipment.
