... of the center volunteers. Unfortunately the program was a bit of a dud.

Following that we had tea in the Pax Lodge dining room. The girls learned to hold their pinkies up while drinking tea. We ended with a friendship circle to finish our morning.

We took a double decker bus to the South Bank of the River Thames to enjoy a Thames boat ride and the London Eye. It was nice to see the view of London from the river. We learned what we Americans ...

This one you'll have to stretch with me a bit, but I'm going to talk about how the people of London touched me spiritually. I'll still defend the French and say that they are not necessarily a rude people, but they aren't necessarily friendly either. I think the entire time I was in London I came across two people who weren't absolutely lovely. The customs officer I dealt with at 4 in the morning, the guy I bought my ...

... the gate agent and I don’t have the boarding pass. It looks like the same one who told me to check my passport 30 minutes ago. “Oh, 51D? You dropped your boarding pass and we found it, but I think they just threw it away.” Why would you throw it away if you KNOW a passenger dropped it? She pulls me to the side and apparently it’s a federal case to get it reprinted and there’s walkie talkies and unhelpful ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Claridge's London

    Treated like royalty ONLY if you are royalty

    from

    What a disappointment. Had stayed at the Savoy twice and loved it (despite warnings) and opted for the grand dame on my 40th birthday. The room had ample wardrobe space (as does the Savoy), but was otherwise unspectacular with a CD player that did not work. The floor was supposedly non-smoking, but those next door were and complaints to the desk were ignored. One evening, while dressed in my black cashmere overcoat and Burberry scarf, I was halted and turned back until I identified myself as a GUEST. Not even an apology was offered. The doormen never offered to do a thing when I appeared and one of the concierge staff was brusque to me and friends who came to collect me for dinner. Nothing was welcoming or inviting about a property that IS gorgeous. You only pay the price; you are not treated as a guest (unless you are perhaps famous or a regular). One desk clerk was marvelous, one concierge was as well, but for each of the staff who were, there were an equal number who were not. For over $425 a night, no hotel should be so inconsistent. I have had tea here on several occasions and always found it to be superb. Will continue to use the public rooms on the ground floor but never venture up again.

    Service with a Smile

    from

    My husband and I spent 4 nights at Claridge's in August. I would say overall it was a beautiful hotel. It had an intimate feeling and the staff was helpful at every opoortunity. We brought our children ages 12 and 14 who are use to travelling to nice hotels. At times they felt it was a little too nice.They felt out of place because of what they were wearing. Other than that they enjoyed our stay.

    The most memorable part of our stay was our dinner at the Gordan Ramsay restaraunt located in the hotel but seperate from it. The food was excellent! Reservations are HIGHLY recommended and expect steep prices.

    I would definately stay Claridge's again!

    Outstanding Service at Claridge's

    from

    My husband and I just returned from a stay at

    Claridge's and both of us loved the Hotel. From the moment we arrived the service was impeccable.

    We were upgraded to a fabulous suite with the

    most amazing bathroom. All the staff at the Hotel went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant one. We loved the bar - great fun to sit and chat with the bartenders and the dining experience

    at Gordon Ramsey's is a must. We can't wait to

    return to London to stay at Claridge's.

    Wonderful

    from

    I was taken to Claridges under cloak and dagger thoroughly unaware of what was in store, and what a surpirse! We stayed in an executive room and it was fantastic. I can thoroughly understand why taknig a room at Claridges was and probably still is highly regarded.

    Nothing had been missed, nothing was 'unthought of' and the service was impeccable right from walking into reception.

    We've stayed in some amazing hotels over the years and experienced some excellent service, particularly in the US but I really can't see this being bettered for a long time to come, if at all!

    The experience was completed by a meal at Gordon Ramsey and is something I will not forget for a long time.

    British style, elegance and class to the nth degree!

    Afternoon tea...wonderful, delightful

    from

    My sister and I enjoyed afternoon tea at Claridge's on Easter Sunday.

    Afternoon tea

    from

    We went to afternoon tea on Friday August 22, 2003. We were there at 5:30PM and had to wait about 1 minute for table. Most of the people were dressed nicely. It looked like some business and office birthdays etc. were happening. We were there for in essence for early dinner before going to the theater. Service was great, we left very satisfied.

    We were surprised at the amount of food we were given. Looking forward to going back again for sure. Very fun.

    How the mighty have fallen

    from

    We had reservations for afternoon tea at Claridges, one of the most famos venues in London for tea. We went dressed well in coat and tie, expecting the same attire from the other guests. We were very disappointed to see them seat a group of 5 at a nearby table in very casual dress. One male was dressed in jean with his long sleeve shirt hanging out . When we asked the waiter if there wasn't a dress code, such as at the Ritz and the Savoy, he just shrugged and said that 'at least he wasn't wearing trainers'. The hotel manager, in an email reply to me, said that 'smart casual' was required unil 6:30. This is a far cry from the standards that used to be upheld there, so I must downgrade the hotel from its once 5 star standing.

    Wonderful

    from

    Stayed there October 2003, and it remains a bastion of English class and elegance. Despite some struggles to get our luggage delivered, a quick visit to reception paid dividends, and the front desk service was exceptional. Possibly the best hotel I have stayed in to date; and hopefully not for the last time.

    Claridges - an English tradition

    from

    Claridges was everything we thought it would be with tasteful, elegant decor, outstanding service and wonderful food. Our room was lovely, though a bit on the small side, but the bathroom was in black marble and very hip. Afternoon tea in the lobby was delicious and the atmosphere of the hotel reeked of class.

    Grand London Hotel

    from

    The Claridges is a classic hotel in every sense of the word. While not as luxurious as I might have thought it would be, the art deco rooms were very nicely appointed. Our King Bedded room was very large with seperate dressing room,large bedroom and large marble bath. The only drawback was that the room was near the rear elevator but the sound wasn't significant. The staff is outstanding. Professional and sincerely friendly. I don't think I've stayed at a hotel with a better staff. The room was serviced twice daily as you expect with shoe shines, virtually instant laundry and butler service. We stayed for a week and looked forward to returning to the hotel at the end of the day. Only one warning, the phone charges are outrageous even for London hotels. Two emergency calls in the middle of the night to the states cost $120. for about 15 total minutes. And local calls are $1.00 per minute. Internet charges are as bad. But all in all it is a grand place to stay.
