When César Ritz was building his now-iconic hotel in 1906, he wrote his neighbor Lord Wimborne, asking him to sell his house to the hotel. Lord Wimborne replied, “I am thinking of enlarging my garden. How much for the Ritz?” A century later the Ritz purchased the 18th-century mansion, now known as William Kent House. Connected to the hotel on two levels, it adds three magnificent suites and five stunning dining rooms, including one overlooking The Green Park. Throughout the rest of the hotel, the Louis XVI decor evokes an era of old-world opulence. The air of luxury is reinforced by the two-to-one staff-to-guest ratio, private members club and casino, chauffeur driven Rolls- Royce service, plus fine dining in the magnificent Restaurant, one of the most sought-after dining destinations in London.
