When the elegant Ritz Hotel opened in 1906, it was described by its founder, C?sar Ritz, as 'a small house to which I am proud to see my name attached.' It is now once again privately owned and renowned for traditional service from friendly staff. The hotel's 131 rooms and suites are decorated in the opulent manner of Louis XVI, and offer all the modern conveniences and amenities. The Ritz Restaurant has been described as 'one of the most beautiful dining rooms in Europe', and looks out on its private terrace and garden. Whether in London for business or pleasure, The Ritz is the first choice for those who appreciate beauty, luxury and the grand traditions of fine hotel-keeping.
