Hotel «Ritz» Paris
For a long time Caesar Ritz fostered the dream of implementing his ideas and visions on his own prototype in Paris.
In a former prince's residence on the Place de Vendôme - which was already an art monument in itself- the «Hotel Ritz Paris» was built. It was opened in 1898 with a celebratory ceremony. «The guests came. And they came in gaggles.» (Citation: Louis Mettler).
What they called the «Ritz-Philosophy» became reality here: carefully planned, refined architecture, unlimited satisfaction for every guest, intuition for change in society and trends, luxury and creative cuisine.
«The hotel Ritz is a small house of which I am very proud to see my name attached to.» (Citation: Caesar Ritz).
