And as befits a hotel bearing the Royal Warrant, The Ritz London accords its young lady guests with truly royal treatment. On arrival, a girl can become a member of Kidz@TheRitz which outlines her ?Very Important Princess? status! Her benefits are tempting and include a welcome goodie bag, milk and cookies on turndown, and in-room children?s amenities of bathrobes, slippers and toiletries. She will also be able to consult the Teen Concierge who can assist her with any special requirements that she may have. Her exciting day begins with the mother and daughter arrival at the hotel and a visit to the Ritz Salon where both will be treated to a manicure. They will then relax while enjoying a fruity drink for daughter and a cocktail for mother in the Rivoli Bar, before a delicious three course meal in the magnificent Ritz Restaurant. It?s tiring being a Princess, so the day will be completed in their exquisitely decorated room. A traditional English breakfast will follow the next morning.
