With endless luxury London Hotels to choose from, the search for the perfect hotel can get overwhelming, very fast. Even as a Luxury Travel Advisor, it can be challenging to narrow down the perfect option when navigating over 25 + five-star accommodations. Fear not, I’m here to cut to the chase when it comes to the “best of the best” of luxury London hotels.
Classically contemporary, Four Seasons Park Lane is hands down, one of the best luxury hotels in London. This hotel is in a great location in the neighborhood of Mayfair, and is very central to all the touristy spots. If it’s your first trip to London, and you’re looking to stay somewhere first-class with a personal touch, look no further than the Four Seasons Park Lane!
Are you a seasoned London traveler? Have you already stayed at Four Seasons Lane countless times? Are you looking for a new option for a luxury London hotel? Then it’s time to experience the brand new Four Seasons London at Ten Trinity Square! Just east of the hustle and bustle, is the City of London, which is a historic financial district. Four Seasons London at Ten Trinity Square is the monumental landmark of the 1922 headquarter of the Port of London Authority lending itself a new modern, yet powerful twist. This new luxury hotel is within steps of the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, and Borough Market just across the River Thames.
For accommodations at Ten Trinity, I recommend booking the Executive room. It is the largest of their standard guest “rooms” but feels like an entry-level suite expanding up to 721 square-feet. This room embellishes ample storage, a sofa bed, and my favorite… a very large, clad in marble, dual vanity bathroom. Did I forget to mention heated bathroom floors? My favorite room highlight was the in-room iPad access to many of the hotel’s services within an easy swipe. This even included access to a pillow-menu; where my complimentary body pillow was delivered within minutes of request… now that’s 5-star service! It’s safe to say I was feeling right at home within my first hour at the Four Seasons London at Ten Trinity Square.
The Dorchester Hotel is one of the world’s most desirable hotels let alone one of THE TOP luxury London hotels. If you’re going to book the Dorchester, it only makes sense to book one of their notoriously unique suites that is sure to match your personality. From afternoon tea to live piano music in the Promenade, The Dorchester has been iconic among Londoners for over 85 years!
45 Park Lane is the Dorchester Hotel’s intimate and sophisticated sister property. Even with just 45 rooms, this hotel is full of chic-lines and life! Many of their warm and contemporarily designed rooms have their own private terraces which sets them apart from the rest. If art and creative energy moves your soul, 45 Park Lane is just for you.
As part of the Red Carnation Hotel Collection, The Milestone has that “red lip, classic thing that you like”, as Taylor Swift would say. With generous staffing of two personnel for every guest, you are sure to be treated like royalty. Afternoon tea is fit for a queen, especially in the chic Conservatory. Get lost in the endless stripes, checkers and patterns of black and white with your tea and crumpets!
In high demand, if you book the two-level Margaret Rose Suite with room for three, your prince or princess can sleep overlooking a palace. Suite bookings 3 or more nights or any apartment bookings of 5 or more nights, include a one-way airport transfer to/from London Heathrow, as an included Virtuoso amenity.
Last but not least of luxury, keep your eyes on the Belmond Cadogan Hotel. Belmond is opening a boutique luxury London hotel, now scheduled to open in 2018. This $48 million hotel renovation will accommodate just 54 rooms and suites, but we’re anticipating something very unique. The Belmond Cadogan Hotel is already a Virtuoso member, however, as a Belmond hotel, it will offer similar Bellini Club amenities, as well!
Those are my top six, luxury hotel recommendations throughout London (in a nutshell) that are out of this world!
