The Ritz London


Insider Tip

Located next door, Fortnum & Mason is perhaps London's most "English" department store, with a more intimate atmosphere and more old-world charm than Harrods or Selfridges. The food hall, open seven days a week, offers a cornucopia of gourmet English treats, and the window displays are some of the most elaborate "shows" in the West End.

Hotel Overview

Central location
The legendary Ritz London is located in the heart of London's West End overlooking Green Park.
Elegant accents
This seven-story hotel has 133 guestrooms, furnished in Louis XVI style with decorative details in 24-karat gold leaf.
Fine dining
Fully restored, the Ritz features a formal restaurant and the Italian Garden, a unique outdoor facility.

Amenity highlights:

Service is serious business at the Ritz, where there are two staff members (many in traditional tailcoats) for each guestroom. Guests have 24-hour use of business facilities in the reservations office, including a computer with complimentary high-speed Internet access. Other conveniences include a beauty salon with hair, nail, and facial services for men and women, and a fine jewelry store that sells exclusively designed and custom-crafted pieces.

What to expect:

Since 1906, the Ritz London has dominated Piccadilly. Reminiscent of a French château, the Louis XVI-style interior is adorned with Ionic columns and Belle Epoque furnishings. Stepping inside the lobby's three-story rotunda with its leaded glass ceiling is like entering a fairy tale. Yet the Ritz is warm and welcoming, and executives, celebrating couples, and families breeze in and out, undaunted by the hotel's glamorous pedigree.

Men are asked to wear a jacket and tie in the Rivoli Bar, Palm Court, and the Ritz Restaurant. Jeans are not acceptable in these areas.
The Palm Court
Tea at the Ritz is as famous as the hotel itself. Every afternoon the Palm Court fills to capacity as delicate sandwiches, freshly baked scones, pastries, champagne, and a selection of teas and coffee are served beneath a glass ceiling hung with chandeliers. Butter-colored walls, grand marble columns, and a fountain adorned with golden cherubs complete the scene. Although hotel guests can usually be accommodated on short notice, pre-booking is strongly advised.
The Ritz Restaurant
A palatial dining room where the Queen hosted her Golden Jubilee private party in 2002. Ten chandeliers, linked by golden garlands, hang from a mural ceiling, watched over by a gleaming statue of Poseidon. At every table are cherub-stemmed silver bowls of roses, while diners enjoy confit of duck leg with foie gras or roasted monkfish wrapped in pancetta. Two-story glass doors open to a garden terrace for alfresco summer dining in the summer. Open for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner, with live music on weekends.
The Rivoli Bar
This intimate bar is strikingly designed in art deco style, with Venetian-glass ceiling pendants, and polished camphor-wood columns inset with Lalique panels. Guests relax in leopard-print armchairs or at the marble-topped bar to order from a menu of savory light dishes and cocktails. Open from late morning until early hours.
