Located in the heart of the city, The Ritz London is one of the most iconic hotels in the world, first opened in 1906 by Swiss hotelier César Ritz, the former manager of the Savoy Hotel and founder of Paris’s Hôtel Ritz. An opulent, neoclassical Louis XVI décor distinguishes the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel and its lovely guest rooms in which no luxury is spared, and the hotel preserves a traditional way of travel with its semi-formal dress code in its eateries. The hotel’s sumptuous Palm Court provides the setting for the five daily seatings of its famed afternoon tea, while The Ritz Restaurant offers a simply grand setting for dining, and the underground Ritz Club is a sophisticated venue for gambling. Service is professional yet ebullient, with some of the friendliest concierges in the city. When you want to be puttin’ on the Ritz, well, simply head to 150 Piccadilly.
