Claridge’s is both one of London’s most storied hotels—dating from the 1850s—and one of its most of-the-moment hotels. It found its identity in the 1920s and 30s, and is still an Art Deco jewel, even as it’s evolved and become an urban playground for the likes of celebs like Kate Moss and Jade Jagger. The glamorous, individually designed rooms and suites are some of the largest in London, with marble bathrooms, top-line entertainment systems and lush Bamford Natural and Organic toiletries. The spa is a haven on the top floor, with Sisley facials and a well-equipped gym.
In the Area
Mayfair is one of London’s most exclusive districts, filled with independent boutiques and stylish watering holes. It’s also close to the famous shopping on Bond Street and Knightsbridge’s temples to consumption, Harvey Nichols and Harrods. Guests can amuse themselves by strolling in Hyde Park or dining at other haute spots in the neighborhood, like Koffman’s at the Berkeley.
How to Get There
What a wonderful hotel! My wife & I celebrated my birthday at Claridge’s, and it was probably the most perfect stay we could have imagined. The level of service from all the staff was just incredible, so seamless. The room was a delight, & there were so many little touches that made our stay just incredible. Thank you.
Myself and Husband booked to stay here on the Timeless weekend package. From the moment we arrived we were treated like Royalty. The extra touches and service was out of this world. I cannot express into words how well looked after we were. Vito checked us in and showed us around the hotel and our room. The room was stunning, very plush yet not overly excessive , modern with a twist of English elegance. Nothing was too much for the staff they all went over and above. The door staff were great and assisted us with directions. Unfortunately my husband fell Ill over night and the Claridges team were great, arranged a Doctor for us, helped me when I was upset and made sure we were OK. The breakfast was to die for and the restaurant staff were welcoming and helpful. cant thank them enough and cannot wait to return.
This experience was a revelation! One of the very best afternoon teas I’ve ever enjoyed!!the food was really delicious and they are so flexible if you want to change anything. The choice of teas was excellent and we were encouraged to taste different ones throughout the afternoon. The Hungarian lady who served us was so knowledgeable and attentive! Well done!
Had such a wonderful afternoon/evening tea with my friend at Claridge's enjoying afternoon tea. Having experienced the Ritz before, I expected it to be quite similar but I think Claridge's differentiate themselves very well.
I came with my friend who is gluten intolerant and they put on a special spread for her. The sandwiches were delightful - so nice, I asked for a few to bring home for my other half to try! The cakes were so incredibly beautiful and delicious. I had to take some home as I was too full. The takeaway box is just beautiful and comes in a gorgeous bag, you feel like you've just been shopping at Tiffany's! And because we were there celebrating my friend's birthday, they brought out a special cake with a candle. Just wonderful!
Our server was also amazing. Julius. There was nothing he wouldn't do for us. When he realised that our drinks hadn't been brought through from the bar area after we had been waiting for about 5 minutes, he sent someone to sort it out and then also offered us complimentary drinks for the inconvenience. He was incredibly attentive and made us feel very special and welcome.
It's quite expensive, obviously, to go to Claridge's, but as a treat and experience it is worth every penny. Do it!
Went to claridges a few times as it was cheaper to take clients there than hire a boardoom for the meeting. Of course it was silly money for tea and cake but it was impressive. I would say try it as a treat but you might be best to book first.
