At once an iconic building in Mayfair and an Art Deco temple, Claridge's is a legendary place that was once the refuge for European royalty during the Second World War. Its 203 rooms and suites, the most spacious in London, are designed with a timeless elegance.
Some have been decorated by leading fashion designers. Diane von Furstenberg, a veteran of the place, has spiced up the Third Floor Piano Suite with her contemporary signature. Other rooms had their decor inspired by The Great Gatsby, such as those entrusted to Viscount David Linley, nephew of Queen Elizabeth. In the late afternoon, after sightseeing and shopping, do not forget to take afternoon tea, with the delicious finger sandwiches, pastries, and scones for which only the English have the secret.
Behind its trendy reputation, Claridge's still cultivates old-world charm and service of quality.
