I had the pleasure of taking a short business stay at Claridge's recently and i must say that it does impress by providing a wonderful sanctuary in the heart of London.
Service, as you would expect is attentive and faultless, but never intimidating. Dining in the restaurant makes you feel that you are truly a member of an elite and very privileged club and you find yourself expecting to bump into Royalty at any moment.
The suite I stayed in was absolutely exquisite and full of old world charm, with a massive four-poster bed, that I had to climb up onto. The lounge was spacious and equipped with everything I needed - including a butler. The bathroom was sumptuous and none of this peeling the wrappers off soap, of squeezing a plastic tube of shampoo - it is all decanted into crystal dispensers. The downside is that you can't take any home with you.
I can't wait to return, but I could be some time saving up for it !
God Save the Queen.
