From 1860 when Empress Eugenie of France made her winter headquarters here, to the recent introduction of the elegant, Thierry Despont-designed Gordon Ramsay restaurant, Claridge's has been one of London's most sought after luxury hotels. Situated in London's elite Mayfair district, this stunningly revitalized Art Deco gem serves as home away from home for those travelers with aristocratic tendencies. Bedrooms and suites showcase top British design talent, and traditional afternoon tea offers more than 30 selections from around the globe.
When you step out your beautiful front door, which is just a leisurely stroll from Hyde Park, you will marvel at all this magnificent city has to offer. You might explore contemporary works at the Tate Modern or witness the longstanding tradition of the Changing of the Guard. Whether you splurge at Harrods or take in an acclaimed performance in the West End, you will always have a haven to return to, where you can relish a fine Cuban cigar in The Macanudo Fumoir or indulge in a treatment in The Olympus Suite.
