I stayed in London many many times for the last 25 years. However I had never a chance to stay at the Ritz. This time I took the opportunity and made an early enough reservation to get a room over the busy season at end of may. WOW! It takes quite a bit to make me speechless. From the doorman to the receptionist, the bell staff, the butler who showed us around the room and came back with English tea and fresh baked cookies, turn down service, all spot on. We never seen our maid(s) during the entire stay. Once we left the room, they must have miraculously gotten in and shortly after the room was done. I wish I would have stayed sooner in this Hotel. You have to celebrate their famous afternoon tea it is spectacular! But here is a warning to some of my American folks. There is a dress code for gents. You have to wear a jacket all the time in the hotel and for the restaurants even a tie. And if you don't like it, it will be enforced by providing you either a jacket and/or tie, no exceptions! If you think you are on vacation and you want to wear your shorts and flip flops along with your favorite t-shirt, this is not the place for you, go elsewhere.
However, whatever yo need, whenever you need it, it will be discreetly arranged and you will get things done without questions, may it be just a thing you usually would not ask, or at departure, the right size taxi will be ready for you fully loaded with your luggage, even if it is plenty, once you step out of the door. Service from A to Z.
