Claridge's Dubai-bound

Luxury London hotel brand eyes Dubai.

The owner of Claridge's in London wants to bring his luxury hotel empire to Dubai, it has emerged.

Property tycoon Derek Quinlan is looking for investors who will bankroll an international expansion of the Maybourne Hotel Group, which includes the world famous Claridge's in Mayfair and The Berkeley in Knightsbridge, London.

The company would use the funds to launch hotels in key "gateway cities" such as Dubai, Paris and New York under the Maybourne name, The Times in the UK reported.

Claridge's connections with royalty have led to it sometimes being referred to as an extension to Buckingham Palace.

Well-known guests have included U2, Mariah Carey and Brad Pitt. Its main restaurant is run by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay.
