History & Story
Since its opening on June 1st, 1898, the Ritz Paris has been the epitome of elegance and the understated luxury of French art de vivre. The privacy and glamour of this unique environment immediately made it a gathering place for the greats of this world, royalty, artists and writers, first among them Marcel Proust and Ernest Hemingway. Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn and Maria Callas, always loyal to the Ritz Paris, contributed to the mystique of Place Vendôme.
The Ritz Paris has reopened this June 2016 after an unprecedented restoration. Renowned interior architect Thierry W Despont oversaw the restoration.
