The Ritz Hotel, with its exterior in a French-American architectural style, enjoys a magnificent location in Piccadilly. From here, it has provided the benchmark for excellence in hotel quality since 1906, its brand a watchword for taste and luxury. Over the years, it has hosted countless royals and other celebrities, notably Noel Coward in the 1920s and ’30s.
The Ritz offers fine dining in its Michelin-starred Ritz Restaurant, while afternoon tea in the super-elegant Palm Court is a world-famous tradition. Equally celebrated is the Rivoli Bar, a gorgeously intimate cocktail lounge with an Art Deco design and gilded ceiling domes.
