Room Capacity


Opened by renowned hotelier César 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 134 room luxury hotel is ideally placed to suit both business and leisure visitors alike. Now totalling 111 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 ‘Live at The Ritz’ Dinner Dance on Saturdays.

Afternoon tea in London at The Ritz is an institution in itself.  Served in the spectacular Palm Court, there is a choice of 17 varieties of loose leaf teas, a selection of cut finger sandwiches, tea cakes and pastries along with fresh scones with strawberry preserve and Devonshire clotted cream. 

Private dining facilities at William Kent House, the 18th century mansion house opened recently at The Ritz, includes 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, private 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 been fully restored with no detail left untouched.

The weather was stifling, the day had finished and the weekend was almost in sight, the perfect reason for a cocktail. So The Handbook headed to The Rivoli Bar at The Ritz. A glorious gem of a bar giving a nod to the art deco era, think dark woods, gold leaf and Lalique glass. You would be mistaken for thinking it was a product of the era itself, but in fact it was redesigned in 2001 by Tessa Kennedy.

But whilst we loved the decor, and the atmosphere: comfortable, relaxed and yet intimate and definitely not stuffy (this isn’t an old boys, member’s only bar), we weren’t there for that, we were there for the cocktails. And with their bartender Waltus Pintus having recently won the award for the best bartender at the recent London Club and Bar Awards, we knew we were in for something good.
