Claridges — London, United Kingdom

Posted by Best Luxury Hotels

Claridge's, the epitome of grand English style, is situated on the corner of Brook Street and Davies Street and is within easy reach of Hyde Park, Park Lane, Bond Street and Oxford Street. For over a century the hotel has enjoyed the patronage of the most illustrious families, leaders and dignitaries from around the world. Showcasing the highest standards for hospitality and service, this society venue has received numerous prestigious awards in its distinguished history. 

In 1999 Claridge's embarked on the first major designer restoration since the 1930s, when David Collins was invited to create a new cocktail bar. New York-based designer Thierry Despont was brought in to revitalize the Foyer area. Using archive photographs of the Ballroom Extension that dated from the early 1930s as inspiration, the space was completely made over in a modern art deco style, with a stunning, and completely up-to-the minute Dale Chihuly chandelier as its centerpiece. A dramatic and notable way for Claridge's to enter the 21st Century. Thierry Despont went on to create Gordon Ramsay at Claridge's, London's most glamorous restaurant. 

With the beautifully restored bedrooms, including two spectacular Penthouse suites, state-of-the-art technology, luxurious health and fitness facilities, private function rooms and the Art-deco Claridges Bar - the hotel is now also attracting a trendy, younger generation to appreciate the impeccable service and elegant atmosphere.

Ken M., Cumbria, United Kingdom. December, 2006
"This was our first stage at Clariges in London, but it will definitely not be my last. In fact we have booked another short break. The hotel was superb and the staff exceptional. A wonderful atmosphere, welcoming but not pretentious. The breakfast and afternoon tea were superb and the service first class."
Mark, New York City, NY. May, 2006

John, Toronto. May, 2006
"This is an exceptional hotel which I have stayed in before with very good service and facilities. On this stay you also arranged for us to stay at the Athaneum on Picadilly and I would rate it higher in terms of friendly service. Claridges is a bit more formal and less friendly.I do think that your rate for the Athaneum was much better than Claridges where your rate did not differ significantly from their online rate."
