I have not stayed at the hotel as a guest but have visited here for a surprise afternoon tea with family. Nevertheless, the welcome we received by just the doorman says it all. Very approachable, helpful and friendly. Just entering the bar and reception hints at the magnificence awaiting anyone who decides to stay there. The decor and decorated ceilings... More

Surprising - in that the image of this luxury hotel is one of formality and occasion, when actually it is quite friendly and - apart from its dining rooms - informal. The dress code for those areas is reasonable when you consider that for those guests a visit is often a very special occasion. Breakfast in the fabulous dining room... More

I'd thoroughly recommend The Ritz for afternoon tea. Beautiful setting. Perfect service, various sandwiches with crusts removed, dainty cakes, warm scones with cream & jam. Extra slices of cake for those with hollow legs. Just what you need before going to a west end show. Extravagant YES. Worth the money Definitely YES.

A wonderful stay to celebrate my 60th birthday, I was made to feel really special with my upgraded room filled with flowers champagne and cake. The beautiful room was incredible and immaculately clean, with lots of touches of class. I have had the pleasure of staying in many of London's 5* hotels but this is by far the best of... More

There's something special about the Ritz when you walk through the door. Not the latest and greatest ..but special nevertheless. Old world , old style. You do feel very secure with the obvious level of security that is required these days.

Visited the hotel for cocktails after theatre and dinner in Chinatown. The staff are absolutely brilliant. We had gorgeous cocktails together with tasty nibbles. One of our party received the wrong drink which was quickly rectified. A short time later we received complimentary petit fours for the entire party(6 of us). We were completely bowled over by the gesture. We... More

Staying in St. James's

Neighborhood 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
