Stayed at the Ritz for 3 nights in single room (King Room). Main rooms all beautiful as expected, plenty of staff waiting to help. Atmosphere refined. Rivoli bar has intimate areas to allow quiet talking with companions. Breakfast food and service was tip top.
Room was even larger than expected, very smart with champagne, fruit and chocolates and a lovely rose and other plants provided. All room conveniences provided although I did not find an ironing board or iron.
Efficient booking in and payment service, with no waiting
On the downside, room was not quite ready on time. Several bathroom floor tiles were cracked, and the grouting had turned brown. The grouting on the wall tiles was poorly finished around the toilet area. The toilet seat did not fit the bowl properly. The only shower was in the bath and the water temperature changed significantly while I was under it (pretty annoying). The TV battery for the remote control did not work (I would have thought the Ritz would have a check list before guests arrive). Battery was changed quickly though.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Opened by renowned hotelier Cesar Ritz in 1906, The Ritz today still retains all the glamour and excitement synonymous with this world famous hotel. Perfectly located in a landmark position on Piccadilly in the heart of London's West End, the 136 room luxury hotel is ideally placed to suit both business and leisure visitors alike. Now totaling 111 bedrooms and 25 suites, the elegant rooms combine the original Louis XVI style interiors with modern day technology. Considered by many to be one of the most beautiful rooms in the world, The Michelin-starred Ritz Restaurant features a magnificent frescoed ceiling with west facing windows overlooking the Terrace, the Italian Garden and Green Park beyond. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, with a Dinner Dance on Friday and Saturdays. The Palm Court restaurant offers, most famously, daily Afternoon Tea service which has been popular since the hotel first opened. The stylishly updated Rivoli Bar was designed by Tessa Kennedy and features Art Deco styled interiors. Open daily with a bar menu. Private dining facilities at William Kent House, the 18th century mansion house at The Ritz, include an exquisite selection of banquet rooms and suites. Possibly the most elegant and opulent private rooms in London, William Kent House offers the perfect venue for private receptions, weddings, boardroom meetings, lunches, dinners and gala events. The Ritz London is a Grade II star listed building and in 2002 became the first hotel to receive the Royal Warrant from his Royal Highness The Prince of Wales for banqueting and catering services. ... more less
