The exchange rate between the U.S. Dollar and the British Pound is discouraging, to say the least. According to Google, £1 = $2.0038. This means you have to double the price in pounds to get the equivalent price in U.S. dollars.
This makes the Guaranteed U.S. Dollar rates at The Ritz all the more amazing. A Superior King room costs all of $450, and a Virtuoso travel consultant can probably get the hotel to offer the full Virtuoso amenities as well (full English breakfast daily, an upgrade at time of booking if available, and discounted parking).
The Ritz is a true five-star hotel, one of the most elegant properties in London. With a 2:1 staff-guest ratio, the hotel is ready to serve the needs of its most discriminating guests. Offering a great location with an easy walk to the shops of Bond Street and Mayfair, the Ritz has beautifully decorated rooms and an exquisite afternoon formal tea service.
Upscale travelers wanting to bring the entire family to London should consider the Deluxe 2 Bedroom Suite, the living room of which is pictured above. Two full bedrooms and two baths offer 1180 square feet of total living space. The price in U.S. dollars? $1,585. This is a discount of 60% off the normal corporate rate of £1,995.
