English The Ritz Hotel, London

The Ritz London is a Grade II listed 5-star hotel located in Piccadilly in London, England. A symbol of high society and luxury, the hotel is one of the world's most prestigious and best known hotels. It is a member of the international consortium, The Leading Hotels of the World. Over the course of its history the Ritz has become so associated with luxury and elegance that the word "ritzy" has entered the English language to denote something that is ostentatiously stylish, fancy, or fashionable.The hotel was opened by Swiss hotelier César Ritz in May 1906, eight years after he established the Hôtel Ritz Paris. After a weak beginning, the hotel began to gain popularity towards the end of World War I, and became popular with politicians, socialites, writers and actors of the day in particular. David Lloyd George held a number of secret meetings at the Ritz during the latter half of the war, and it was at the Ritz that he made the decision to intervene on behalf of Greece against Turkey. Noël Coward was a notable diner at the Ritz in the 1920s and 1930s.

Owned by the Bracewell-Smith family for a period until 1976, The Ellerman Group of Companies purchased the hotel for £80 million from Trafalgar House in October 1995. They spent eight years and £40 million restoring it to its former grandeur. In 2002, it became the first hotel to receive a Royal warrant from the Prince of Wales for its banquet and catering services.

The exterior is both structurally and visually Franco-American in style with little trace of English architecture, and is heavily influenced by the architectural traditions of Paris. The facade on the Piccadilly side is roughly 231 feet (70 m), 115 feet (35 m) on the Arlington Street side, and 87 feet (27 m) on the Green Park side. At the corners of the pavilion roofs of the Ritz are large green copper lions, the emblem of the hotel. The Ritz has 111 rooms and 25 suites.

The Ritz Club, owned by the owners of the Ritz Hotel since 1998, is a casino in the basement of the hotel, occupying the space which was formerly the Ritz Bar and Grill. It offers roulette, black jack, baccarat, and poker, as well as some slot machines.

The interior was designed mainly by London and Paris based designers in the Louis XVI style, which is consistent throughout. Author Marcus Binney describes the great suite of ground-floor rooms as "one of the all-time masterpieces of hotel architecture" and compares it to a royal palace with its "grand vistas, lofty proportions and sparkling chandeliers".

The Ritz's most widely known facility is the Palm Court, which hosts the famous "Tea at the Ritz". It is an opulently decorated cream-coloured Louis XVI setting, with panelled mirrors in gilt bronze frames. The hotel has six private dining rooms, the Marie Antoinette Suite, with its boiserie, and the rooms within the Grade II* listed William Kent House. The Rivoli Bar, built in the Art Deco style, was designed in 2001 by interior designer Tessa Kennedy, to resemble the bar on the Orient Express.

Portuguese Hotel Ritz (Londres)

O Hotel Ritz em Londres, conhecido simplesmente como Ritz Hotel, é um hotel localizado em Londres, Reino Unido. Foi o primeiro hotel da empresa hoteleira Ritz Development Company e um dos mais luxuosos da cidade. Tem 5 estrelas e é um dos hotéis mais famosos do mundo.

O hoteleiro suíço César Ritz, ex-gerente do Hotel Savoy, abriu o hotel em 24 de maio de 1906. O edifício é neoclássico no estilo de Luís XVI construído caindo na Belle Époque para se assemelhar a um bloco de estilo parisiense, em galerias que conscientemente evocam a Rue de Rivoli. Os seus arquitetos eram Charles Frederic Mewes, que anteriormente havia projetado o Hôtel Ritz de Paris e Arthur Davis, com a cooperação de engenharia do engenheiro sueco Sven Bylander. Foi a primeira estrutura de aço estrutural substancial em Londres.

O Ritz foi gerido pessoalmente por muitos anos. Contratou o mundialmente famoso chef Auguste Escoffier para fornecer comida que combinasse com a opulência da decoração do hotel, que tem uma campainha especial colocada na entrada pelo porteiro, que assim poderia notificar a equipe da chegada iminente da realeza. O Ritz é conhecido por seu serviço de catering, bem como suas salas de conferência para executivos e diretores de empresas multinacionais.

O hotel foi durante algum tempo propriedade da família Bracewell-Smith, que tinha uma participação em outros hotéis, como o Park Lane Hotel, situado nas proximidades. No entanto, a crise do petróleo no início da década de 1970 afetou o negócio familiar e eles tiveram que vender o hotel à Trafalgar House em 1976 por 2,75 milhões de libras.

Mais tarde, a empresa David e Frederick Barclay comprou o hotel à Trafalgar House durante a crise que atingiu o país por 80 milhões de libras, em outubro de 1995, por meio de investimentos na empresa Ellerman. Passaram oito anos e foram utilizados 40 milhões de libras para a restauração da casa.

A ex-primeira-ministra do Reino Unido Margaret Thatcher morreu no Ritz Hotel depois de sofrer um acidente vascular cerebral aos 87 anos de idade, em 8 de abril de 2013.

Chenese 伦敦丽兹酒店

伦敦丽兹酒店(英語:The Ritz London)是位於英國倫敦皮卡迪利街150号的一间五星級酒店,是英國二級登录建筑。伦敦丽兹酒店是世界最為知名的酒店之一,同时也是立鼎世酒店集团的成员。

1906年5月24日,巴黎丽兹酒店的创始人、瑞士酒店大亨凯撒·丽兹来到伦敦成立了这间酒店。第一次世界大战結束後,伦敦丽兹酒店迎来兴隆,尤其受到政客、社会名流、作家和演员的欢迎。战争后半期,英国首相大卫·劳合·乔治曾在伦敦丽兹酒店舉辦過数次秘密會議,并在此决定代表希腊对抗土耳其。20世纪20年代至30年代,英国演员诺埃尔·科沃德常常在丽兹用餐。

1976年以前,布雷斯维尔-史密斯家族拥有酒店产权,特拉法加集团收购酒店后于1995年10月以8000万英镑再次将酒店售予埃勒曼集团。埃勒曼集团花费8年、耗资4000万英镑将酒店修复至过往的华丽状态。1998年,酒店在地下室兴建丽兹俱乐部。丽兹俱乐部是酒店的赌场,占据了原本属于丽兹酒吧和烧烤餐馆的位置,提供轮盘、二十一点、百家乐、扑克以及角子机等赌博游戏。2002年,伦敦丽兹酒店因其优秀的宴席和餐饮服务获得威尔士亲王的皇家委任认证。

酒店的外部结构和外观受到了法国建筑传统的深刻影响,其结合了法国与美国的风格,同时仍留有些许英国风格的痕迹。面对皮卡迪利街的建筑立面大约有231英尺长,面对阿灵顿街一面为115英尺长,而绿园一面则为87英尺长。屋顶的每一角都有酒店的象征——青铜狮子。酒店共有111间房间以及23间套房。

酒店内部装潢为路易十六风格,主要由伦敦和巴黎的设计师进行设计。建筑历史学家马库斯·宾尼认为酒店一楼的装潢是“历史上最优秀的酒店建筑杰作之一”,并将其“宏大的景象、高耸的厅堂、闪亮的吊灯”与皇室宫殿相提并论。伦敦丽兹酒店最广为人知的设施是棕榈厅(The Palm Court),著名的“丽兹茶会”(Tea at the Ritz)在此举行。棕榈厅拥有奢华的奶油色路易十六风格,镜子皆镶有古铜色的边框。酒店共有六间私人餐厅,包括玛丽·安托瓦内特套房(Marie Antoinette Suite)以及二级登录建筑威廉·肯特楼。里沃利酒吧(The Rivoli Bar)拥有类似于东方快车酒吧的装饰艺术风格,由室内设计师特莎·肯尼迪于2001年设计。
