Claridges Business Hotel — London, United Kingdom

The Claridges Business Hotel, was known as epitome of grand English style, is located on the corner of Brook Street and Davies Street and is within easy reach of Hyde Park, Park Lane, Bond Street and Oxford Street. For over a century, Claridges has enjoyed the patronage of the most illustrious families, icons and dignitaries from around the world. Offering the highest standards for hospitality and service, this business hotel has received numerous prestigious awards in its distinguished history.

1999, the said business hotel embarked on the first major designer restoration since the 1930s, when David Collins was invited to build a new cocktail bar. New York-based designer Thierry Despont was brought in to revitalize the Foyer area. Archive photographs of the Ballroom Extension that dated from the early 1930s as inspiration, Claridges was completely made over in a modern art deco style, with a stunning, and completely up-to-the minute Dale Chihuly chandelier as its centerpiece. A dramatic and notable way to enter the 21st Century. Thierry Despont went on to create Gordon Ramsay at Claridge's, London's most glamorous restaurant.

With the elegant restored bedrooms, including two spectacular Penthouse suites, modern technology, luxurious health and fitness facilities, private function rooms and the Art-deco Claridges Bar - the business hotel is now also attracting a trendy, younger generation to appreciate the impeccable service and luxurious atmosphere.
