Hotel Ritz, Paris Hotel Information For many, the Ritz Hotel in Paris is the first word in luxury. Hotels all around the world have followed the lead set by Cesar Ritz after he opened his hotel in 1898. Mr. Ritz set out to combine an old-world tradition of hospitality with up-to-date technology. The Ritz Hotel of today continues along the same lines. Originally built as a private home in the early 18th century it has been cleverly converted to create more than a hundred luxurious accommodations: some 106 rooms and 56 suites. Elegant furnishings complement their useful facilities. Ritz-style luxury has many aspects. Some are what might be expected from such a fine hotel: high levels of service, reception rooms available for private banquets and meetings, etc. In others it may be that Ritz goes beyond what its guests expect. The Ritz health club has one of the largest hotel pools in Paris; the luxury spa has a sumptuous neo-Roman décor; the L’Espadon restaurant has a reputation for serving fine food. The luxury of the hotel is set off by its location. Situated on the antique and elegant Place Vendome, one of the most historic squares in Paris, the Ritz Hotel is near luxury shops and upscale restaurants, and halfway between the Opera and the Louvre.turkeyarena.com A member of the Leading Hotels of the World, the Ritz is a unique Paris property, one that in some way symbolises what it is to be a luxury hotel in a famous city.
