If ever a place were an incarnation of an ideal, it would be the legendary Ritz Paris on the Place Vendôme. Behind the luxury, service, and decor lies the vision of one man: César Ritz, who revolutionized the hotel business to become both an art and an industry. Personally overseeing every detail, sparing no expense on comfort and cuisine, Ritz created in 1898 a mythical hotel, a place where one came to see and be seen, where one felt both at home and transported to another world.
Recently this jewel in the heart of Paris underwent a complete restoration, and now the Ritz Paris has again opened its graceful doors to the world, a glamorous star taking the stage of the Place Vendôme with renewed spirit. This radiant volume overflows with elegant imagery illustrating the Ritz’s esteemed guests and showcasing the impeccable work of designer Thierry W. Despont and architect Didier Beautemps to restore and rejuvenate the hotel while respecting its intrinsic history.
