Ever since its opening in 1898, the iconic Ritz Paris has been a home away from home for royalty, heads of state and celebrities for over a century.

But after all those years of hosting and pampering its guests, the hotel was in need of a face-lift. The hotel called on famed architect Thierry Despont, who took on the tedious task of restoring the hotel back to its former glory.

After being closed for almost four years, the glamorous hotel reopened June 14 to a standing ovation.
