Perfect 10: Rock star hangoutsThe last known address of Jimi Hendrix, the guitar legend was a regular guest at the Cumberland hotel in London during the 60s and even conducted his last ever interview here just days before his death in 1970. To mark the anniversary, the hotel has created a Hendrix suite, designed with flamboyant colours, touches of psychedelia, vintage fabrics and statement lighting to capture the musician's style.
There's even a wall of framed original NME covers from the 1960s featuring Hendrix, a three metre high mural of the guitarist and his tracks programmed onto an iPod. The suite costs £399 per night, based on two sharing, and Guoman Hotels will be donating £10 from every night's stay to the Hendrix Foundation, providing deprived children with access to musical instruments or music lessons, for the year.
