Tastefully restored, the beautiful Hôtel Ritz Paris – one of France’s leading luxury hotels – re-opened in June 2016.
Located in the heart of Paris, on the beautiful Place Vendôme, Hôtel Ritz Paris was founded in 1898 by Swiss hotelier, César Ritz, in collaboration with the chef Auguste Escoffier. It was Paris’ first hotel to have lifts, electricity, telephones and en-suite bathrooms, bringing a new level of luxury to the fore. Hôtel Ritz Paris rapidly attracted an A-list of cultural, artistic and aristocratic guests, some of whom, including Coco Chanel and Ernest Hemmingway lived there for years.
Today Hôtel Ritz Paris offers guests a unique ambience and French art de vivre in which to enjoy their stay. Here you can savour haute cuisine by Chef Nicolas Sale, linger over custom cocktails at the Bar Hemingway and indulge in first-class beauty treatments at the world’s first Chanel spa.
This beautiful hotel’s extensive four year restoration programme has been described as “modernised but with discretion” and has faithfully retained its heritage touches. Many of the updates are subtle, drawing on the hotel’s extensive historical and literary credentials. Its 142 rooms, apartments and suites are generously proportioned and beautifully decorated; room reservations currently start from 1000€ per night.
Hôtel Ritz Paris offers a choice of elegant restaurants and convivial bars and salons. Choose from leisurely breakfasts, brasserie brunches, gourmet lunches, French afternoon teas and wonderful evening dinners.
Relax in the Ritz Club Paris where its art deco style swimming pool is redolent in turquoise mosaic. Home to the new Chanel spa, here you can place yourself in expert hands and enjoy a unique well-being experience.
