An address which will be indexed in top 10 of the luxurious hotels and will be proposed to my international and local clients, who are after a place offering at the same time beautiful terraces, an exceptional gastronomy and elegant lounges. 2012, august the 1st, 2 p.m : last check-out before closing.

Every single corner of the Ritz is beautiful, but I recommend the visit of the beautiful suite named “Coco Chanel” located on the 1st floor, or the Opera room, at the last floor, whose view is breath-taking! Here is a sneak peek of what you can expect if you stay at the Ritz.  The Suite Coco Chanel. The colors are soft, using pastels tones that create an intimate atmosphere in which we feel extremly good, and offer a great brightness.  The Suite Impériale and its grey-blue shades will make you feel like an actual Princess back in the 19th century.

The Art of Entertaining.  One of the objective of te restoration was to highlight the Garden. From this point forward, the guests will be able to enjoy this Grand Jardin “à la Française”, and the bright terrace, lined by 26 lime trees. There, the only noise you can hear is the birds singing.  If you are willing to organise an event there, you can privatise the Grand Jardin, which is 1600 square meters wide.

Right next to the garden, the bar Hemingway hosts the very well-known bartender Colin Peter Field, elected as the best in the world. And the bar Vendôme has a retractable roof that we can open or close, as we please, to become a cosy Winter Garden.  Greeting your guests at the Ritz Paris is synonym of celebrating the art of excellence. The elegance of the hotel’s private salons and the unique know-how of its personnel will make your events everything but ordinary. Those areas were entirely restored to get the latest sound and light technologies. The renowned Chef Nicolas Sale will treat you and your convives, offering some Haute Cuisine.
