"Sets the standard for elegance and grace."
Synonymous with excellence, the Ritz sets the standard for elegance and grace. The staff is incomparable. The location is at the very heart of London. Tea at the Ritz is the height of old world charm. Rooms are impeccable and beautiful. Attention to detail is unsurpassed. Unobtrusive excellence at tis best.
"Quality and experience; according to the Ritz"
We booked one of the Executive King rooms and were not disappointed, as one would expect. Our favorite Ritz is the one in Paris, France and not going to the UK often, we were inquisitive to see how it compared. Well, it compares very favourably, in some cases even better. The Paris Ritz has been completely renovated and although the staff at Paris are extremely polite and efficient, Ritz London makes you feel like old family coming for a visit. Luncheon is superb, excellent choice of dishes, wines and of course, the Cheese Trolley !! Only the English can call a cheese Stinky Bishop and get away with it - all I will say, try it with some figs and port.. I am not even going to mention the breakfast or the great tradition of afternoon tea, the name Ritz says it all. There are a lot of walk-ins for the afternoon tea so book early. The tea includes your tiered stand with savory sandwiches and small cakes. This is followed by the cake trolley. If you leave hungry you weren't paying attention! I like the small touches : anybody handling your luggage for example, notices your name and will remember it and address you as such; every time. We are sure to go back there again and again. Well done Ritz !
"Lovely experience "
I went with my daughter to celebrate her 21st birthday. The actual environment was lovely and we had a nice time, the food was nice (not the best I've had) the waiter service was good but the down side was that it felt very rushed, kept asking if we were finished and ready for scones when we were clearly not finished. They were ready to tidy away after an hour and 15 minutes when it said we had an hour and 45 minutes. The piano playing was lovely and they played happy birthday for my daughter and gave her a cake, that did make up for it. I wouldn't go again as very expensive but glad we went.
"Grandiose, elegant, traditional, classy."
This hotel doesn't need much presentation in terms of who and what. The how... well, it is comfortable but it's not a modern hotel. There's lots of noise from corridors and doors and just moving about in your room is a noisy affaire. The service is perfect as one would expect at such institution. The location is very convenient and great for shopping.
Absolutely equisite food and service . More food than you could eat and the sweet trolley !!! I have no words . Beautiful surroundings even down to the bathrooms . Would definately go again for a special occasion
