I enjoyed a wonderful 2 night stay over Easter at the Ritz as part of my 30th Birthday celebrations and boy did it live up to all of my expectations! The staff throughout the hotel were welcoming, friendly and helpful. Not a snobby member of staff in sight!
I highly recommend the 'Celebration Package' that my fiancé booked, as it was a lovely surprise for me to find champagne, flowers, fruit and a birthday cake in our room to kick start the celebrations. The Ritz Salon is well worth a visit and I had an amazing full body massage by Anna. Also worth mentioning, is the lovely Easter egg that was delivered to our room on Easter Sunday in a beautifully presented keep sake box - a really thoughtful touch to our stay.
Our room and the public areas were lavishly decorated and it was nice to see that the original glitz and glamour of the Ritz had been preserved since its restoration, so that you really felt like you were stepping back into a bygone era. I definitely recommend cocktails in the Art Deco ‘Rivoli Bar’! The dress code in the public areas has been relaxed slightly this year, but I do not understand why people complain about the strict dress code - after all this is the Ritz and it's nice to have an excuse to dress up!

- 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 113 bedrooms and 23 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 Fridays 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 mansions house opened recently 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. Returned to private British ownership in 1995, The Ritz has now, eleven years later, been fully restored with no detail left untouched. ... more less
