This article will round up our look at London’s top “celebrity hotels”.

Though our list is not exhaustive, we’ve already featured Blakes, The Dorchester and The May Fair in this special series of blog posts.

Claridge’s and the Lanesborough also get their share of celebrity guests but are generally far too discreet to publicise this fact.

Both hotels also offer solid service to mere mortals too and are well-ranked in the top 100 on TripAdvisor, despite their high prices.

The Lanesborough also provides “freebies” to enjoy during your stay including free WiFi, has a lovely location by Hyde Park and is impeccably managed.  I’ve bumped into several famous sports stars around the hotel.

Claridge’s also boasts opulent Art Deco styling and a Gordon Ramsay restaurant – perfect ingredients for celebrities and glamour-seekers alike.

Brown’s in Mayfair (featured already for its outstanding afternoon tea) is the preferred haunt of the thinking man’s celebrity, such as the likes of Fabio Capello (the current England football team manager).

In fact Brown’s has a history of “intelligent celebrities” staying there including the likes of Alexander Graham Bell who apparently tested the world’s first telephone from one of its suites.  Rudyard Kipling (who wrote “Jungle Book”) was also once a frequent regular guest at Brown’s.

Afternoon tea at Brown's was officially rated the best in London in 2009 and the hotel also has a good (albeit expensive) bar

Finally, the Soho Hotel (featured on this blog as one of the most stylish hotels in London and one of the highest-rated on TripAdvisor) is also loved by a certain kind of celebrity.

Being in the midst of some of London’s best nightlife, the Soho Hotel is favoured by people in the music and media business and their clients.  Cheryl Cole, Rihanna and others have recently been spotted there.

In conclusion, it appears you can tell quite a bit about the character of the celebrity from his or her choice of London hotel, so do choose yours wisely!
