Fabulous 100

Claridges Hotel

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.

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 centre-piece. New York-based designer Thierry Despont was brought in to revitalize the Foyer area.

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.

At Gordon Ramsay at Claridge’s, London’s most glamorous restaurant,  David Collins was invited to create a new cocktail bar.

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.
