Overview

The Ritz Hotel redevelopment in St James's in London SW1.

The development includes additional works for a sensitive restoration and renovation of the existing listed buildings plus a rear extension to the main Ritz Hotel building.

The site includes Grade II* listed main Ritz Hotel building & William Kent House, and the now-demolished Eagle Star House on Arlington Street.

A new seven-storey extension will be added to the existing Arlington Street wing of the hotel. The number of guestrooms in the Hotel will increase from 138 to 150.

New food and beverage offerings will be created in the form of the Winter Garden restaurant and guest lounges within the lower ground of William Kent House.

The Ritz Garden and Secret Garden will be reconfigured with enhanced connectivity between them and the Ritz Club.

History

The Ritz Hotel was opened on May 25th 1906, on the site of the Walsingham House Hotel, formerly the Bath Hotel.

Conceived by renowned hotelier César Ritz, The Ritz owes its architectural design to an extremely successful partnership formed in 1900 between Frenchman Charles Mewès, and Englishman Arthur Davis.
