The Ritz London, opened in 1906, is a legendary 5 Star luxury hotel and a member of The Leading Hotels of the World located in Mayfair, London. The Ritz: The world's greatest hotel, as conceived by the world's greatest hotelier.
Detailed throughout in the Louis XVI style, the magnificent hotel serves traditional afternoon tea in the sumptuously decorated Palm Court. Tea is served daily at 13.30, 15.30 and 17.30 and guests will be treated to the best champagne, finely cut sandwiches, scones, jam and clotted cream and a selection of delicate pastries. In 2009 The Ritz received an award of excellence in recognition of its outstanding quality and high standards in tea service. The Tea Guild's Top London Afternoon Tea 2009 Awards are a much coveted prize and the prestigious event is the Michelin star of the tea world. The award was presented to twelve outstanding tea rooms, with The Ritz picking up the award for the fifth year running. A formal dress code is observed in all public areas of this elegant luxury hotel, with gentlemen required to wear a jacket and tie. Jeans and sneakers are strictly prohibited! To stay at The Ritz is to enjoy the ultimate in style, service and sophistication. The hotel offers five different types of suites, all with beautiful, fully restored period interiors and most with the facility to connect further rooms to each suite. Whichever suite you choose, you'll experience a level of service afforded only by a ratio of over one member of staff to each room, and the most rewarding guest experience possible anywhere.

On-site: The fitness room on the seventh floor, exclusively for hotel guests, offers a full range of exercise equipment.
Nearby: Jogging in the adjacent Green Park. Located next door, Fortnum & Mason is perhaps London's most "English" department store, with a more intimate atmosphere and more old-world charm than Harrods or Selfridges. The food hall, open seven days a week, offers a cornucopia of gourmet English treats, and the window displays are some of the most elaborate "shows" in the West End.
The Ritz is located in the St James's district, at the northeast corner of Green Park.
