10 Hotels With An Incredible History

Hotels with history have a special charm. Today, you will find out about the world's most famous hotels, where it literally smells of luxury and art.⠀

This luxurious hotel is famous for the fact that Coco Chanel lived here for 30 years (and died). She was personally involved in the design of her suite, which now bears her name.

The Ritz was opened in Paris by Cesar Ritz in 1898. Charlie Chaplin, Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Maria Callas and other celebrities used to stay here. Luxurious suites are named after the famous guests of the hotel. The hotel bar is named after Hemingway. The hotel offers haute cuisine by Chef Nicolas Sale, it has got 2* Michelin for La Table de L'Espadon, 1* Michelin for Les Jardins de L'Espadon! And there are delicious tea ceremonies every day!

All bed linen, towels, bathrobes in the hotel are of the most delicate peach shade. And this color scheme has not changed since the opening of the hotel, because the wife of Cesar Ritz, who also took part in the design of the hotel, subtly noticed that in the morning the skin looks most advantageous on soft peach bed linen or in a peach terry dressing gown. Every little detail in the hotel sparkles and glistens.

And what a team works here! They all look like models, and they seem to have just left the catwalk. You can talk about this hotel a lot. But it will be better, if you live in it. Or at least come to the tea ceremony.
