Claridge's Review

The well-heeled have been meeting—and eating—at Claridge's for generations, and the tradition continues in the original art deco public spaces of this super-glamorous London institution. Guest rooms are soothing and suave, and spacious bathrooms have enormous showerheads. Enjoy a cup of tea in the lounge, cocktails in the stylish bar, or, better still, a meal in chef Simon Rogan's much talked about new restaurant. Perhaps Spencer Tracy said it best when he remarked that, when he died, he wanted to go not to heaven, but to Claridge's. Can't afford a night here? Claridge's afternoon tea is a seriously fun, high class treat—but make sure you book in advance.
