Ritz

15 pl. Vendôme, 1er, Paris, 75001, France

In novels, songs, and common parlance, there's not a word that evokes the romance and luxury of Paris better than the Ritz. Since its opening in 1898 the storied hotel has attracted tout Paris, the personalities synonymous with the city who burnished the hotel's prestige with their glamour and mystique—Marcel Proust, Coco Chanel, Ernest Hemingway. After a four-year, top-to-toe renovation, the palace reopened its doors in 2016 in the most hotly anticipated hotel event of the year. While all the revered nooks stay reassuringly the same, just buffed to a new gleam (including the hallowed Hemingway bar and the legendary pool), state-of-the-art enhancements include a sybaritic Chanel spa, a retractable roof over the interior garden, and a sumptuous restoration of each of the hotel's 143 rooms.
