Fire Hits Ritz in Paris During Renovations

See recent posts by Lissa Poirot

As Paris’ iconic and luxurious Ritz is wrapping up its extensive renovations, a fire engulfed the seventh floor of the hotel, spreading quickly into the attic. The hotel in the esteemed Place Vendome has hosted the likes of Chopin, Chanel, Hemingway and Princess Diana during her last night in Paris. It has been closed for three years as it continued a multimillion renovation and was rescheduled to open in March. It is unsure if the fire damage will delay the hotel’s reopening.
