Four years after renovation works began on The Ritz Paris under Bouygues Construction, the hotel reopened its doors in 2016. The project involved over 600 construction workers and several specialist artisans including cabinetmakers, stonemasons, and plasterers, to name a few.

Furthermore, the construction work ended up costing approximately 450 million euros. Works involved creating a summer restaurant with a sliding glass roof, a larger number of suites, an extension to the ballroom, and integrating the latest technological innovations, all without compromising the authenticity of the Parisian establishment.

The Ritz Paris is located on 15 Pl. Vendôme, 75001 Paris, France.
