87. Claridge’s, London, UK

Ranked #87 in our countdown of the 100 Best Hotels and Resorts in the World.

“A proper grande dame.” Claire Wrathall

A bastion of British hotel tradition, within a heartbeat of the best London has to offer (this is Mayfair, darling) with authentic 1920s Art Deco extravagance, interiors by a bevy of contemporary designers (like Diane von Furstenberg) and spot-on service – no wonder Claridge’s has kept its top position for generations.

Guest rooms are superbly comfortable and each suite is unique (the Linley suites have particular panache).

There’s a theatre desk for West-End must-sees, dinner in the Reading Room is a standout, the afternoon tea is famed (you must book) and at the ’30s-inspired Fumoir bar cocktails come in Lalique.

Size 202 rooms

Hotels.com genuine guest score 4.6/5

Hotels.com genuine guest review “Claridge’s is one of the best hotels in the world, and certainly the most aristocratic.”

Did you know Spencer Tracy said when he died he’d rather go to Claridge’s than to heaven.
