- What's Included
It is now a sensitive and emotional time for Paris both with the terrorist attacks and presidential election going on. However, when one steps foot into the Ritz Paris, they are put at ease and time stops. The Ritz lets one discover a true Parisienne lifestyle and is one of the most elegant hotels in the world. It is delightfully located at Place Vendome: the richest area of Paris. Compared to other luxury hotels of Paris such as the Peninsula, it is located in a much nicer and convenient area. At Ritz Paris, you will get pampering; from the bellman to the concierge to the housekeeping to the front desk; they are all very professional, as well as always having a smile on their face and strong willingness to help. The rooms are beyond phenomenal, you will sink into their beds with the luxurious and fluffy comforters. The amenities are wonderful as well. The Hemingway and Ritz Paris Bar in the hotel have amazing cocktails and good ambience. As for the restaurants, the Ritz serves their breakfast on a menu which is a lot better than breakfast buffets like at other hotels. The restaurant, L'Espadon, has a lovely interior and the food is delicious as well. To tell the truth, the Ritz is indescribable and one must go there to receive the true experience. When we come back to Paris, Ritz Paris will definitely be our number one choice.
The Ritz in general never disappoints, yet there is nothing like the Paris location. This is a top hotel you must visit if you're not staying there. The quiet area that it is in with all of the high end shopping is great. Our main purpose for going was to have tea and a light lunch on the outdoor patio area and it was such a relaxing experience. Service is slow, so plan accordingly.
We had the pleasure of having Afternoon Tea in Salon Proust for my son's 18th Birthday this week. All the hotel staff were so warm, welcoming and attentive and the afternoon tea was lovely. The decor is quiet stunning and the fresh floral displays were gorgeous. The staff made a special effort to make his birthday one he will remember for ever. The Ritz is such an iconic hotel and a very special Parisian experience, in my opinion one not to be missed.
Been last week with my parents and my husband for their 33rd Wedding Anniversary. The afternoon tea was lovely! The decor is so majestic and splendid. We loved everything. The staff is so welcoming and attentive; you couldn't ask for more. I've never slept there but I really should one day. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I'm sad to write a less-than-stellar review of the Ritz Paris. My husband and I recently stayed for three nights for my birthday shopping weekend. The hotel itself has been renovated well. There are small glitches in the workmanship, but the renovation is beautiful. Housekeeping is outstanding. Service in general was not as good as expected. There were a few issues that you should be aware of before you book:-Room/renovation: while the renovation was well done, there are some areas of poor workmanship. The shower water was not consistently warm, but would put out small bursts of cold water while showering. This is not something that I have experienced in a hotel before. Also, there were areas of unfinished ceiling in the bathroom of room 432 above the bathtub. The biggest issue was that the A/C did not work well. I'm guessing that the light bulbs used are incandescent because we could only cool down the room after having the lights off for hours. It never reached our ideal indoor temperature of 68 degrees. The bathroom was always very warm. The bed was superb, though, and sleep quality was great.-Housekeeping: all of the linens and towels were clean. The room was nearly spotless when we arrived. We asked the housekeeper for extra bath towels (in French and English) twice, but never received extra bath towels. Only two large bath towels were provided in the room. Few toiletries were provided. I’m spoiled by the Mandarin Oriental hotels providing lip balm, full dental kits, etc. Laundry service was slow and my socks came back pilled. Avoid laundry unless necessary; it was also more expensive than other luxury hotels in Paris.-FHR booking: round-trip transfer was included as an amenity and this was nice. Our drivers were great! We may have been upgraded one room category, but a suite upgrade would have been nice since the hotel was not at capacity. Daily continental breakfast for 2 was included in the rate. We took our breakfast in the room daily which was covered by the breakfast credit.-Concierge: always friendly, but recommendations were hit-or-miss. As long as you're very clear about what you want, they may be able to take care of it. They were able to get us a last-minute reservation at a popular fine dining spot with a great view. However, I specifically requested a window table (and wouldn't have gone without confirmation that we had a window table). The concierge assured us that "of course" we would have a table near the window. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were seated in the back away from the window. We inquired about the window table and were told that none were available although we were staring at several empty tables near the window. After extending our dinner to a tasting menu and some rare vintage wines, the restaurant was able to move us to a window table after our 2nd course. Really, the concierge should've taken care of this ahead of time. Also, I wanted an appt. at Hermes as I heard that they started taking appointments with the larger crowds visiting from Asia. The concierge's contact was out of town so we just had to walk-in to both boutiques (Sevres and Rue St. Honore). Luckily, we were helped immediately despite the crowds. We also had another reservation made for us at a small bistro near the Eiffel tower. When we arrived at the time of our reservation, the employees were outside smoking and told us that they weren’t open yet. We left and went to another restaurant nearby. It was a disappointment for our last night in Paris.-Restaurants: we had dinner at Bar Vendome, which was lovely. We sat in the garden area. Service was impeccable. Prices were high but the food is worth it. I love that they offer several wines by the half bottle. We had drinks at the Hemingway bar, which was NOT good. I ordered a French 75 and expected it to be similar to the original at Harry's nearby. It was served in a similar glass, but full of fruit and filled to the top with giant cubes of ice. No straw was provided but there was a fully bloomed rose in the glass. There was not much actual liquid in the glass. How does one drink something with such little liquid in it? And with so much... stuff... without a straw? There were no straws brought when I asked, so I requested one without so much ice and without so much fruit. He asked if I wanted it in a champagne glass to which I replied, "Sure." I also mentioned that I would prefer cognac vs. gin. I was told that I must want "the American version" (accompanied by an eye roll) and was schooled on the history of the French 75 by the server. It was the worst service experience that I've ever had in France. Ever. In any city in France. I just wanted a good drink with liquid in it for my 30 Euros. He belabored this for my entire stay at the bar. We left shortly after.-Service: this was the biggest disappointment. Check-in went well, but service otherwise was lacking. The doormen never learned our names when we were there and they almost always stopped my husband upon entering the lobby. We are usually greeted by name at most fine hotels when arriving to or leaving from the hotel. Not only do they make no effort to do this, but my husband was constantly stopped when entering behind me. On several occasions, he had to show his key and tell them he was staying at the hotel. It was so odd. He’s a pretty normal, middle-aged, well-dressed, eyeglasses-wearing physician. We couldn’t figure out what was triggering this because older gentlemen were not getting stopped. It was so inconvenient and became really annoying by our last day there. The hotel did send us off with a nice chocolate upon checkout and we had a few sweets in the room when we arrived. Because we were staying for my birthday (which was noted with them twice prior to our arrival), it would have been nice for them to mention that. No champagne was delivered to the room or anything like that.I really think that the new Ritz Paris has potential and you will probably love it if you normally frequent Ritz Carlton or Four Seasons properties. It’s not up to the level of any Aman property or most Mandarin Oriental properties in terms of service. Upon returning to Paris, I will probably consider FS George V or the near-by MO before returning to the Ritz but I have not ruled out a return if I've heard that the service has improved. I’m just not sure that they can compete with other brands for frequent luxury travelers.
