100 Years of the Ritz Paris!

November 13, 2009 By:K. Clare Johnson

Hotel Ritz ParisThe Hotel Ritz Paris may be turning 100, but the luxurious Parisian property doesn't look a day over 25. To celebrate a century of top-notch service, The Hotel Ritz has made some improvements to its already world-class establishment. Espadon Restaurant, which recently received its second Michelin star, has been freshened up under the direction of renowned French interior designer Pierre Yves Rochon. The lobby area, shopping gallery and all the guest rooms have been treated to new paintings and new carpets. A Jaguar XJ and Range Rover courtesy cars have been added to the already considerable courtesy car fleet, the better to explore the city of lights with. The King and Queen beds are draped with luxury linens by Quagliotti, the prestigious Italian brand suppliers to royalty. Upon request, guests' initials can be embroidered on the pillow cases. It might be the hotel's birthday, but it looks like the guests are getting all the presents!

Joyeux Anniversaire to The Hotel Ritz!
