The Ritz Hotel in London, England is a high end hotel which opened in 1906. The term, "Puttin' on the Ritz" was inspired by the hotel and refers to surrounding yourself with luxury. While it wasn't quite in our budget to stay or dine at The Ritz, we did walk past it on our way to dine elsewhere.
We enjoyed a nice dinner at Rextail which was only a short walk away.
The Ritz Hotel is located on Piccadilly Street which is home to an interesting variety of architecture. The building above is one of the Ritz's across the street neighbours.
The hotel has hosted members of high society along with actors and actresses who would come to indulge and socialize. In the movie Notting Hill, Julia Roberts plays a popular Hollywood actress named Anna. She meets William (Hugh Grant) in the bookstore that he owns. She invites him to come and visit her at her Ritz Hotel suite. To William's surprise he is there along with a group of reporters ready to interview Anna about her latest sci-fi film. After pretending to be a reporter from Horse & Hound magazine, William and Anna finally go out and spend a nice evening together.
They go out for dinner again and then return to The Ritz. As they walk along the corridor above, Anna invites Will up to her room. Unfortunately, her American boyfriend is there and Will leaves the hotel confused and sad.
If you're blue and you don't know where to go to. Why don't you go where fashion sits.?
