The Ritz London’s distinctive guest rooms look like they are from belle époque France with Louis XVI-influenced décor and furniture. The large off-white room has gold accents all over it — including a gold ring on top of ceiling’s crown molding and an “X” pattern on the bottom, cream furniture with gold details and knobs, and a gold square umbrella holder.
Tiny gold figure eights line the white wood bed’s mauve headboard top. Two bedside tables are cream with gold detailing. One table holds a phone and a blue clock/notepad holder with a pencil, and the other has a white wood tissue box with a navy script “R.” Both tables have lamps with a gold base and white tulip-shaped shade. The window has thick cream drapes with pink and blue flowers and matching tassels on its edges. The floral print is identical to the elegant bedspread. In front of the window, two teal wooden chairs flank a small round table.
On the other side of the room, a glass-topped desk offers ample space, even with a phone, another tulip lamp, a Ritz notepad and a chic gold pen. A navy Ritz desk organizer holds brochures about the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel. A velvet mauve chair is tucked under the desk.
Near the desk is a mauve marble fireplace, whose mantel holds a small potted plant and a Bose radio/CD player. Above it hangs a white-and-gold mirror. Next to the fireplace is a table with a silver Sony television and a shelf holding a Sony DVD player. If you don’t feel like watching TV, the room offers some reading material, including The Cocktail Book: A Decade of Rivoli at The Ritz, which reveals recipes for the art-deco bar’s fantastic drinks; The Mayfair Magazine, a local luxury publication; The Spectator, a weekly current events magazine; and Tatler, a Condé Nast UK glossy. A nearby closet has a luggage rack, safe, hangers and extra bedding.
