Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Ritz Paris
Just got back from a great stay at the Ritz. We took our kids 3,5, and7 years old...and they loved it! My daughter turned 7 when we were there and the hotel Manager sent her a delicious cake, and a personalized birthday card. It was so kind. The location was ideal, and the hotel drips of old world class. Everyone was kind and helpful with our young children, we felt very safe there. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, and I think that it is a must see. We ran into a few famous people ...
only thing I would maybe change would be the peach towels in the bathrooms.
Sophisticated, Cozy, Expensive
We stayed in the Ritz on the last night of our honeymoon last winter, and it certainly lived up to its mystique. Yes, the room was significantly more than most of the suites we had stayed in at various countryside chateaus, but we had accepted that beforehand. The hotel interior was simply grand, the staff was quite helpful (including a maitre d' from L' Espadon who helped me procure some cigars for my father-in-law at 10 AM on the morning of our departure despite being quite busy). The 4 or 5 cigars, by the way, cost more than most of our nice meals, but they were a big hit back home. Our room (upgraded without request) was cozy, not to the point of being small as some reviewers have indicated, but intimate. The decor was quite nice, with a tapestry, antique desk, and very comfortable bed. The amenities were very modern, and we were quite happy to purchase and take back home one of their soothinig robes. Being very tired by that point, we opted for room service instead of dining at L'Espadon, but we were rewarded there with a very good dinner of an excellent tomato bisque, salad, magnificent roast duck, and a fruit and cheese plate. I look forward to visiting there again to enjoy a few drinks at the Hemingway Bar. And yes, even in our 1 night there, we saw a recognizable Hollywood film star walking the main halls, as impressed with the place as we were.
The true palace
The Ritz is the essence of the palace experience, and I just spent a few wonderful days at the hotel. Positive points: grand surroundings, superb pool, superior and kind service (they brought me a cashmere blanket when I felt cold one night, I disliked the first room and they gave me a nicer one right away), unforgettable breakfast at the main Espadon restaurant, great bars and shops. Negative points: separate but poorly-equipped shower in the bathroom, bed too short, slightly dated room decoration and fitness area. I stayed in a room in the Vend?me wing (the Cambon wing is more intimate) and had a special winter rate. Value for money: ok but expensive, George V probably better in that category. Still, a unique experience.
I have stayed in many of the best hotels in Europe and the Ritz Paris ranks as the best.
The location is very good-close to the Louve and the upscale shops on Place Vendome and Rue St Honore. It is also handy to the exciting night life of the Marais.
The service is amazing and attentive. The consierge was able to get us into restrauants that we had been warned would be impossible to get into. The valet returned our rental car when we arrived in Paris and decided that we did not want to risk our lives in Paris traffic trying to locate a gas station and the rental car office.
The experience and treatment we received at the Ritz was worthy of royalty.
The Ritz Hotel Paris was superb
I took advantage of the information I have been receiving from your newsletter regarding the hotel Ritz Paris and I satyed ther for 1 week in January of this year. It was not too cold in Paris, just a little rainy, but not every day. Hands down, The Ritz Paris is the most wonderful hotel I have ever stayed at. The service was superb, the staff efficient and attentive, the breakfast each morning was delicious and filling, and my accommodations were wonderful. I cannot say enough about the nice stay. I also found the Hotel staff to be very helpful and understanding with anythinI will admit that when I arrived there, the price that I ended up paying per night was more than what I discussed with the reservations person over the phone and by email.
Also, the dollar was low compared to the euro so that also made a difference. But, if you want to do something, I say just do it and go prepared for the unexpected. I would certainly stay there again.
Legendary.... but not very luxurious
The Ritz Hotel Paris is one of the best known hotels of Paris. It is legendary, not only because of its name. The service is friendly, concierge is real source if you want to explore Paris, the restaurant is good and the location suberb at the Place Vendome. But it just stops here... the rooms are avarage, I have stayed in a suite, but it wasn't that large. The ceilings were high and the candeliers very beautiful.
But the whole suite and hotel furniture is very old, it looks if the time stood still in this place. Not that it is in a very bad condition, but I expected more. The carpets are old, the the bed was slightly damaged and the hotel is expensive for the accommodation it has to offer.I recommend people if they are looking for nice salons, spacious rooms and much more attentive service: Hotel Plaza Athenee and Four Seasons Hotel George V. But, if you want to tell to your friends: "I have stayed in hotel Ritz Paris" please book a room there.
Fantastic service, elegant, but Small Rooms
I stayed at the Ritz Hotel about three years ago, I had arranged thru American Express Platnium reservations a room and a Mercedes Benz pick up at the Air france gate. The driver arrived PROMPTLY, even meeting me at the Plane DOOR!! But since the flight arrived at 7am and we arrived at the Ritz at around 8am they "claimed" to have NO rooms available when I arrived. I challenged them with the fact that WHY was a car sent to pick me up when NO rooms were available and I should have been notified in advance. They suggested I have breckfast in the dining room, after it, my room was still NOT ready, well I did cause a fuss and a room was ready within a half hour BUT it was NOT the room that I expected. YES it was as elegant as could be, a large bathroom, Silk duvet, a down mattress pad and a wonderfullly comfortable bed with silk everywhere but the room was not much bigger than the bathroom, I would say 200 sq feet at the MOST. I only stayed ONE night so and being SO TIRED I didn't complain (a rareity) But the service was IMPECABLE, as was the service at the concierge who called a club that was IMPOSSIBLE to get into and gave me a note and I waled to the front of the line and got in for FREE where it would have cost $30, so staying at the Ritz has benefits that can get you into the best resturants, clubs, whereas other hotels could not do the same. YOU WILL NOT find the tennis shoe traveler here, it is a top drawer clientale, with guests who know and expect the BEST, especially on service, where the Ritz ranks the BEST, the ONLY problem was the small room, which under platnium card I was even entitled to a suite upgrade at check in if available, but I suppose due to my DEMANDING of a room NOW they gave me the first room available which happened to be a smalll room, had I complained at 3pm, I have NO DOUBT that they would have changed my room to a Jr. suite or at least a 400 sq. foot room. I plant to return to Paris this summer and WILL DEFINITEY STAY AT THE RITZ, and will most definitely ge
A Great Hotel
I just had to write a review (this is my first ever) to counteract the bad review by the fellow from San Francisco.
I have stayed at the Ritz many times. Its food is great.... room service, amazing,.... fashion week or the car show.... no better place... Hemmingway's bar the place to meet... It is a really great hotel... plan on a grand or two a day... it isn't cheap.... it is nothing to drop $500 just for some drinks...but there is really no other hotel like this place except perhaps Claridges in London...
OH, and secuty is top notch. NOBODY will ever bug you there. So, for tourists it is not.... but if you love being pampered by people who know how to do it... The Ritz is THE PLACE. It is also like a little home away from home... they always remember you and treat you kindly when you return again and again.
Once in a lifetime!
Stayed at the Ritz 3 years ago for New Years and it was the most remarkable experience ever. The room was incredible and the service impeccable. Drinks at Hemingways was an experience.
Concierge arranged all evening activities for us and got us into the best parties in town.
At check-in, room was not ready so they treated us to a hydrotherapy message!
It you want true value for your money and an unforgettable holiday... stay here!!
Not for winter
several years ago i satyed at the ritz for two nites.
it was horrible. the time of year was january and it was very cold. arriving in my room (several hundred miles from the elevator) i asked the bellman to please put the heat on. he looked and said it was on. someone else came and said it "should " warm up. i went out and got back late.
it was still freezing. i called reception and again someone came , they said it was on. it never warmed up. i got up the next day took a bath in the freezing air (water was hot). went out, came back still freezing. it was never resolved and no one took it upon themselves to resolve it. i should have been a bit more agressive, maybe, but hell i was at the RITZ. so i think if you're not madonna or princess di don't waste your money. two nites there is a week in a much nicer hotel. (location on place vendome is spectacular!!!!!)

Talk about a severe lack of thermal wear and winter boots!
Yesterday we woke up to cold weather and drizzle all day. After a bit of a sleep in we went and got metro tickets from Anvers station and caught trains to the Musee d' Orsay.
We had to line up in a very long queue outside for about 40 minutes in the rain, the umbrella has been a ...
... the French Riviera. It is a pretty swanky first class lounge, with lots of hustle and bustle, and a wonderful grand ornate interior. See interior in photos. The restaurant had only recently reopened following renovations- Jacqui was relieved to find the renovations had not transformed the interior into a minimalist Scandinavian restaurant! ! The birthday lunch location had been kept a secret, and Marianne did ...
... in it and the cacoa was delightfully dark. A nice way to cool off to boot. We returned home for a light lunch and some down time. For supper, we decided to try out Bones (coincidence!) which is known for its craft beer and charcuterie. Unfortunately the metro line we needed to take was shut down, so we chance it by taking a different one and walking further. The area we had to walk through was fairly desolate which gave it a bit of ...

The Paris light woke me up multiple times in the early morning so I need to better prepare tomorrow night! I had the lovely honor of changing beds so I had to pack up all my stuff before 10 and store my luggage. It wasn't fun! At least I had the walking tour to look forward to! The tour was really awesome as it should me the way of Paris and taught me some history! As well, I meet many more Americans and others. It was fun seeing all of Paris' major sights ...
