The Ritz Paris Closes Its Doors for Two-Year Renovation
The Ritz Paris is one of the most famous hotels in the world, with a storied history that all began when César Ritz made the dream of owning his own palace a reality in 1898. Residents and guests of the Place Vendôme property have included such figures as Coco Chanel, F. Scott Fizgerald, Marcel Proust, and Ernest Hemingway.
But buildings that have been around for over 200 years often need some serious restoration work to keep up the glamor and grandeaur. And the historic luxury hotel, located in the heart of the city, is closing its doors for two years in order to complete a massive renovation.
In a letter to guests and newsletter subscribers, General Manager Christian A. Boyens and President Frank J. Klein announced the closing of the property and explained that the multi-year project would include updates to rooms, suites, restaurants and bars, the spa and even the famous Ritz Escoffier cooking school. Interior designer Thierry W. Despont will lead the restoration program.
The letter states: "We will ensure that the charm and personality of the Ritz Paris is kept alive and that we continue to satisfy even the most discerning travelers."
The Ritz Paris is expected to reopen again to the public in 2014. You can follow along with the progress of the project by visiting www.ritzparis.com.
