When it was built in 1898, the Ritz Paris set a new standard for luxury. With lavish décor, phones and bathrooms in every room, and an exclusive location in Paris’s 1st arrondissement, the Ritz attracted royalty in its early days and celebrities in more modern times. In 2016, it reopened after a massive four-year renovation that made the hotel even more Ooh la la worthy.
If your dream Paris experience is to live like a modern-day Marie Antoinette, add brunch at this iconic hotel to your bucket list. With three options—ranging from a traditional menu of eggs and French pastries to the “gastronomic orchestra” at Salon d’Été—you can’t go wrong at this Paris institution.
