9780500019344: The Ritz Hotel London

A beautiful photo history of one of the most luxurious and beautiful hotels in the world.

Cesar Ritz invented the modern luxury hotel. The palace hotels he created in London and Paris brought new standards of architectural elegance and comfort to grand hotels and were followed by the Ritz Hotels in Madrid and Lisbon and the Ritz-Carltons in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and Montreal. The London Ritz was designed by the architectural firm of Mewas & Davis, who introduced French elegance into English interior design. They decided that the whole hotel should be one style--that of Louis XVI, the ravishingly pretty fashion of the eighteenth century that is forever associated with Marie-Antoinette. From the start, the intention was to create an air of intimacy, the feeling of a French nobleman's residence permanently en fete. Ritz himself abhorred large hotel lobbies, and the architects created the illusion of grandeur with a gallery running the length of the hotel in which guests could promenade or sit in comfort at any point and be served. In this splendid, beautifully illustrated book, the intriguing history of the London Ritz is traced from its opening in 1906 to the recent extensive refurbishment under new ownership. Here are anecdotes about its most famous visitors, accounts of its important events, and profiles of the people responsible for giving it such an enduring reputation. The resulting volume will delight not only those lucky enough to have enjoyed firsthand the unique pleasures of the Ritz, but everyone who has a feeling for London, luxurious living, and the attraction of unsurpassed quality. Full-color photographs throughout

Descrizione libro Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 1999. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. As the refurbishment of the Ritz Hotel in London reaches completion, this is a celebration of the history of the hotel and, in photographs, a record of the survival of much of its essential character and decorative features nearly a century after its completion. The genius of the French architect Charles Mewes and his partner Arthur Davis lay in their ability to retain a sense of intimacy whilst creating public areas of grandeur and opulence. They built an imposing Grand Gallery running the length of the building and providing access to all ground-floor facilities, notably the Palm Court, the stately Marie Antoinette Room and the magnificent Restaurant at the west end overlooking Green Park. All these aspects are illustrated in a range of original architects floor plans, historic photographs and catalogues, together with photographs of the present interior, including the kitchen, and of key members of management and staff whose dedication to the cause of ensuring the comfort of guests continues in the spirit of the hotel s legendary founder.
