The London Ritz is not to be confused with a Ritz-Carlton. There is nothing wholesale or duplicated about this experience, it is truly an original -- from high tea to the appointment of the rooms to the butlers to every detail about our stay, we felt as though we were transported back in time to a place where service and...

Many days after I checked out and paid with my credit card (after the money had been taken from my bank account), the Ritz had blocked, not charged yet, an extra £800 on my card without letting me know. I checked out and paid the full bill plus extras on the 13th of November, it's December now and the money...

If you like top hats, staff in tails, and a formal presentation, this place is for you. Fancy interiors with staircases for overly dressed clientele to have their photos snapped, tea service on proper China, and a rigid dress code rule the day. The dining room even requires "proper" footware. In lieu of my unacceptable $250 sneakers, staff loaned me...

Stayed at the Ritz with my girlfriend. Was a great experience...you definitely pay for the name though, dtayed at much nicer hotels for a lot less money. Fun for the experience! The restaurant has great food too and again for us was worth it for a one off experience

Me and my husband went for afternoon tea on my birthday and it was just amazing! The decor is stunning, the food was delightful and the service second to none. The sandwiches are so delicious and the scones are too. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will be returning very soon.

I booked this as a present for my best friend's 50th birthday- her special day was in September but I booked this in May as availability was very limited due to it being near Christmas!

The Ritz is quite simply breathtaking. It oozes old school glamour and old money. We were shown to the cloak room and the ladies powder room where I was amazed at the individual towels you get when you wash your hands! The afternoon tea was simply amazing. Unlimited tea and sandwiches and cakes and scones. Nothing was too much for...

Staying in St. James's

Neighbourhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Opened by renowned hotelier Cesar Ritz in 1906, The Ritz today still retains all the glamour and excitement synonymous with this world famous hotel. Perfectly located in a landmark position on Piccadilly in the heart of London's West End, the 136 room luxury hotel is ideally placed to suit both business and leisure visitors alike. Now totaling 111 bedrooms and 25 suites, the elegant rooms combine the original Louis XVI style interiors with modern day technology. Considered by many to be one of the most beautiful rooms in the world, The Ritz Restaurant features a magnificent frescoed ceiling with west facing windows overlooking the Terrace, the Italian Garden and Green Park beyond. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, with a Dinner Dance on Friday and Saturdays. The Palm Court restaurant offers, most famously, daily Afternoon Tea service which has been popular since the hotel first opened. The stylishly updated Rivoli Bar was designed by Tessa Kennedy and features Art Deco styled interiors. Open daily with a bar menu. Private dining facilities at William Kent House, the 18th century mansion house at The Ritz, include an exquisite selection of banquet rooms and suites. Possibly the most elegant and opulent private rooms in London, William Kent House offers the perfect venue for private receptions, weddings, boardroom meetings, lunches, dinners and gala events. The Ritz London is a Grade II star listed building and in 2002 became the first hotel to receive the Royal Warrant from his Royal Highness The Prince of Wales for banqueting and catering services. ... more   less
