Paris, Place Vendôme.
One of the most elegant places in the world.
Ancient buildings, luxury boutiques, and the most prestigious hotel in the city: the Ritz.
After a four-year renovation, the historic luxury hotel reopens with the same grand décor and new restaurants, bars, gardens and terraces.
As César Ritz declared when he bought the property at the end of the 1800s to make it the most luxurious hotel in the world, “the building should have all the refinements that a prince could desire in his own home”.
The Ritz became an iconic hotel and today its glory goes on, thanks to the architect Thierry W. Despont, who handled the renovation project.
The Ritz holds the stories of its illustrious guests: from Marcel Proust who wrote part of the A la recherche du temps perdu in his room, to Charlie Chaplin, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Greta Garbo and Maria Callas.
The Hemingway Bar is clearly dedicated to the American writer, who spent several nights writing and drinking at Ritz Paris, followed by his friends.
But the closest relation with the hotel was certainly the one of Coco Chanel, who lived in a Ritz’s suite for more than 30 years.
Today the Ritz-Chanel partnership is stronger than ever, with a dedicated suite and the opening of the world’s first Chanel spa.
Staying at Ritz Paris is always an absolutely exclusive experience, from taking a sip of tea in the Salon Proust, tasting the well-known petites madeleines, to enjoying a facial at the Chanel spa, or lying on the secret garden’s sofas, losing all sense of time in a real gem, just in the heart of Paris.
Ritz Paris reopens. And the experience is more exclusive than ever.
