100 Years of Legend. The Ritz was inaugurated on June 1, 1898, on the historic Place Vendôme, constructed by Hardouin-Mansart, the architect of Versailles.
Its unique charm and the distinction of its guests have made the Ritz a mythical hotel. Tradition and Modernism
The Ritz Paris was entirely renovated between 1979 and 1989, with the greatest respect for its original style. The decoration is still strictly à la française from the classic furnishings to the rugs and wall-hangings.
The Ritz lives up to all the demands of modern life.
