A London legend at its best, located right in the heart of Mayfair, Claridges is as discreet as it is opulent and showy. Style and fashion are ingrained in its rich history. In the 1950s this was a home away from home for fashion icon Audrey Hepburn. Diane von Furstenberg’s long association with the interiors of the hotel began in the 1970s. Kate Moss celebrated her 30th birthday at the hotel back in the day. And Luxury furniture designer David Linley has 25 suites here. The hotel has fascinated people over the years, so the BBC ran a documentary in 2012 which went behind the scenes of the historic hotel, exploring its past, present and future. In December, Dior marks the beginning of the festive season with their dazzling Christmas tree created exclusively for the hotel. An address here, be it for a few days only, is something worth showing off.
