The hotel at a glance
A world within a world, when we think of the perfect luxury hotel we think of Claridge's London. If at request, a hotel is prepared to put a gym in a suite or book a restaurant halfway across the world for you, then you know you have the best service luxury has to offer.
Claridge's is rich in history and has housed more head of states than a UN convention. Winston Churchill enjoyed the afternoon tea in its lobby and suite 212 was declared Yugoslav territory for one day to allow the Crown Prince Alexander to be born on Yugoslavian soil. In more recent times, the London Olympics had staff running on high alert as most of the represented countries housed their officials within its walls.
But whoever you are, the staff will go to great lengths to keep you satisfied and make your stay memorable. The heart and soul of this hotel lies in its service. No request is too great and the words: “sorry we can’t do that” will probably only be heard if you ask for a Dodo egg omelette served with a glass of yak milk. A Japanese pop star asked for her bathtub to be ripped out and replaced with a Jacuzzi, Robert Downey Jr asked for a complete gym to be set up in his suite and a middle eastern princess requested that a whole floor be restyled into an oriental palace for her, and her 40 strong retinue. All requests are met with a smile and rooms restored to stock perfection for your visit (that is unless you have some crazy request too). We told you this was a world within a world.
The senior staff here have clocked years of service tending to their guest’s whims and their experience and passion is palpable in your every interaction with them. The staff will call you by name and the manager handwrites greeting cards for every single guest upon arrival. Do you like your bed linen arranged in a certain way? Or your reading chair by the window? If you’re a returning visitor and have made such requests in the past, you will be pleased to find minor details such as these are given the utmost importance and your room will be arranged to suit your needs.
Though the service and history are the heart and soul of this hotel, its luxurious art deco design from the 1920’s will have you wandering every section of it in utter amazement. This is a hotel that has a history of welcoming royalty amongst its guests and only a palace is able to rival its allure and even then, we are sure that some may not succeed. This is the best art deco design our collection has to offer and its elegance shines through as soon as you walk through the door, commanding your admiration and respect as you marvel at the same decor that kings and queens have since 1985.
No matter how accustomed you are to luxury travel and hotels, entering a room at Claridge's will slow your step and make you feel like it’s your first stay in a 5 star. This hotel brings meaning to the word “luxury” and after a visit, you’re left with the impression that it solely exists to describe the beauty within these walls. We could spend hours describing every minute detail, but let's just say that grand pianos, marble bathrooms and crystal chandeliers are a standard in most suites. Whatever your imagination is cooking up, Claridge's does it better.
Unless they are looking for a plethora of restaurants to choose from, diners, will not be disappointed. While most luxury hotels invest heavily on diversifying their restaurant choice, Claridge's focuses on two, but remains in the spirit of the hotel by doing so. The Foyer and the Dining room are iconic restaurants that have a strict no camera policy and their beautiful decor is probably where the term “fine dining” was coined. Should you choose to remain in the privacy of your room, you will be happy to know that Claridge's offers a 24 hour in room dining menu and true to their never say no policy, are sure to oblige to any of your requests.
If you had to go to only one hotel in your life, we would recommend Claridge's. It’s an institution that commands the respect of every guest no matter their title. Prestige, luxury and fantasy meld within these walls and the unique service, will have you calling it home within minutes. Book now and be part of history. We’ll leave you with a quote from one of the hotel’s more inspired guests:
