Beginning in 2012, the 159-room Paris Ritz underwent a four-year, multimillion-euro renovation, reopening on 6 June 2016. While the hotel has not applied for the ‘Palace’ distinction from the French ministry of economy, industry and employment its Suite Impériale has been listed by the French government as a national monument. The newly renovated and re-opened Hotel Lutetia applied for and recently received a Palace designation. Debbie and I have stayed at both hotels before and after renovation and view both as Palace hotel quality. We would stay in both in the future.
Among the other eleven we have stayed at Hotel Bristol Paris by far the most often followed by Shangri-La Paris and La Reserve Hotel. We have either dined at or review visited the remaining nine Palaces. For a variety of reasons, we have no intention of adding the others to our approved list. The majority of reasons have to do with location.
