THE RITZ LONDON

First of all, I love old hotels. You know that it has seen it all, you can feel the history in the walls. But sometimes you can smell it too, an old, mouldy scent. I had that experience at The Pierre a while back. Not good, because you at least expect it to smell OK when you spent that much money on a hotel room. And maybe the interior is not that sexy and reminds more of being in a museum. The other thing is that these old hotels does not always have a SPA, that includes The Ritz London. Huge downer. I have never stayed at The Ritz, only been there for afternoon tea, which was amazing. Caroline Stanbury on the other hand, loves it. Read more about that here. Over to the facts:

HISTORIC HOTEL
“When The Ritz first opened its doors in 1906, it was considered one of the greatest hotels in the world. The Ritz is located in the heart of London, making it the perfect base for exploring one of the most vibrant cities in the world.”

ALWAYS A GOOD SIGN THAT THE HOTEL HAS A PRIVATE CLUB
The Ritz Club, one of the world’s most exclusive private members’ clubs, is situated in the former ballroom of the hotel on the lower ground floor. Hotel residents are granted access to The Ritz Club.”

STRICT DRESSCODE
“The Ritz London has a dress code in different areas of the hotel as follows: Gentlemen are required to wear a jacket and tie (jeans and sportswear are not permitted for either ladies or gentlemen) for afternoon tea in The Palm Court and for lunch and dinner in The Ritz Restaurant and Terrace. In all other areas of the hotel (The Ritz Restaurant breakfast service, The Rivoli Bar, The Long Gallery) and The Ritz Club, smart casual attire is required.   Please note that shorts, trainers and sportswear are not permitted in any of the hotel or Club’s restaurants or bars.” (The Ritz London)
