The biggest hotel event in Paris this year will be the long-delayed (or “much-anticipated”) reopening of the Hotel Ritz. Closed – for its first significant renovations since the 1970s – in August 2012, this historic property was originally due to be unveiled back in 2014. It’s now accepting reservations from March 15.
Another of the French capital’s grande dames, the Hotel de Crillon closed for a major refurbishment in 2013 and was expected to be relaunched under the management of Hong Kong-based Rosewood Hotels & Resorts last spring, but is unlikely to reopen until sometime next year.
