London is a town you'll want all your time and energy for. There are so many places to see, so many things to do and experience. The best place to start is with a great hotel. This list should start you off properly.
As a hotspot for celebrities, with a highly professional staff and elegance usually relegated to royalty, the Dorchester is a rightfully famous institution. Make sure you have a drink at The Promenade during your stay! Excellent service, perfect ambience.
The grandiosity of the lobby speaks volumes. Take in the high ceilings, chandeliers, and have a drink at the fabulous lobby bar. The rooms are incredible, and the service impeccable, but head to the Punch Room and enjoy the fire place before checking in!
Largely considered London's most romantic building, this once Victorian structure is now one the best hotels in town. Have classic English dishes by master chefs, cocktails at the bar, and enjoy the spacious rooms. Try the Booking Office's fish & chips!
Historically significant and classically furnished yet modernly comfortable, the Corinthia Hotel includes several restaurants, bars, and an impressive spa. Massimo is one of the best Italian restaurants in town. Head to the Bassoon piano bar for a drink!
If you want to feel like you're on her majesty's secret service, stay at the Langham. Aside from it being used as a filming location for James Bond, this hotel has hosted royalty, dignitaries and celebrities since 1865. Have the Wonderland Afternoon Tea!
With a lovely retro atmosphere, spacious rooms, and quality cuisine, the Ace Hotel is an excellent choice. Additionally, there are vinyl records and guitars to play with, if you're feeling creative! Have an excellent drip coffee at the bar - enjoy!
Designer rooms, free and fast wifi, and a Mac station with mobile phone chargers in the lobby - the Hoxton is comfortable and convenient. There's also a party in the lobby every Saturday and Sunday night! The food is delicious, too. Try the steak tartare!
Propped right by the Thames and across the world-famous Big Ben, the Park Plaza in Westminster is a luxuriously comfortable place to lay your hat. With a pool, gym, and free wifi, the amenities are reason enough to stay, but there's also a great bar!
