Long time resident at The Ritz

Scott Fitzgerald

Zelda forewarned Scott Fitzgerald, from the moment they met, that she would only marry him if he were to become famous…this became a reality with the astounding success of "This Side of Paradise". The couple led a bustling life, filled with trips around the globe and numerous friendships, a pure embodiement of the "annĂ©es folles" and the era of Jazz. The author of "The Great Gatsby" wrote short stories, covered his muse in jewels and found new and eccentric ways of seducing her, in a romantic, passionate quest, forever admired and copied at the Ritz.
