“Ritz Magic....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Stayed on several occasion in the ritz, eaten at the Espadon, at Vendome, brunch.....What to say about this magic place, my favorite hotel in Paris after I tried all parisian palaces, always went back there with outstanding excitement and pleasure. My son even did the cooking classes for the kids...Every time, same indisputable quality, service kindness of the personnel. Impeccable service from parking the car in front to having a drink or diner. Managed one night after a long diner & party in the patio (Outside vendome/espadon with friends to access the pool not knowing it was closed..........while we were all trying to have a night bath there; Even on this occasion security personnel were very friendly and kind to explain that we could not access the pool and swim at that time!
To cut the story short, can't wait for it to reopen, hoping it will still be as sweet as it was before!

This hotel is absolutely beautiful. The service is fantastic, it's a physically beautiful building and our room was stunning. Staying here is truly a luxury everyone should experience. Hard to find anything wrong with the Hotel Ritz other than the bill when checking out. :)

Beautiful and magical just as I had hoped. Slightly dated in decor but we were made aware of this before we went due to the fact that they are now undergoing massive refurbishment which in a way made it so much more special!! Just all in all a wonderful stay and we are looking forward to seeing the new decor in the future!!

Went in June 2012, just before the refurbishment. Lovely hotel which is expected with this luxurious chain, would recommend to anyone, will be going back when refurbishment is complete. Hotel did look dated however I was made fully aware the hotel would be closing for refurbs and had no problem.

With the Ritz now closed for two years for major renovations, will we be losing forever one of the last of the legendary grand hotels as we know it? They have let their entire staff go and are embarking on a quest to "modernize" and "upgrade" this "dated" hotel. Last time I was there, it looked fine to me. The accommodations were luxurious and the staff was polished. The Ritz has its own unique style and, frankly, I don't stay there for the sterile look of a Four Seasons or Mandarin Oriental Hotel. But that seems to be the way all the grand old hotels are going. Frankly, these days, you don't know whether you are in Hong Kong, New York, or London once you are in your room. Does every hotel room have to have wi-fi, a ghastly flat screen television, and a monotone color scheme? What passes for "luxury" these days does not impress me and there will be a fond remembrance of things past as the Ritz gets its "makeover." By the way, the Crillon is now closed for two years as it goes under the knife also...

Hotel seems a bit dated - shows its age and glad it is closed now for renovation. Amazing location on Place Vendome, very handy for shops and going out. The Hemingway bar is great. Lots of history and very elegant. Staff a bit snobbish sometimes, but on the whole very good. A true classic!!!

After having a horrible experience at a nearby hotel for $1k a night, we called Ritz to see if they could accommodate us...last minute -- it was during Fashion Week, and the Ritz seems to be the epicenter - but, somehow we got their last room. The room, when we arrived was set up as two doubles - we called down and asked for a King, They not only fixed us up with a King bed, by the time we got back from dinner - but, they fixed us up with the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in - by far! The toiletries are all La Prairie, which was a nice bonus - and the management sent up a plateful of truffles and a bottle of champagne because of the bed issue. The service overall was incredible. The hotel is the most extravagantly appointed hotel I have ever seen, I will go back.
