Kevin O’Connell, a member of the Group, gave a fascinating presentation based on the central London hotel - Claridges. The uninspiring red brick frontage belies the opulence within. Rooms at the Hotel range from £200 for one night to £2,000. Many of the guests are frequent visitors and their suites are made ready for them as if they had never left. Royalty, both national and international are often to be seen and meals to suit every palate can be provided on request. On May 17, Peter Hammond will talk about “Potions, Lotions and Cure-alls.”
