    Ham Yard Hotel
    London, GB
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1123 reviewsTripAdvisor (1123)
    Free WiFi

    Although the Ham Yard Hotel sits steps from London's bustling Piccadilly Circus, the hotel manages to maintain a relaxed atmosphere thanks to its unique village-like layout, said recent guests. This chic boutique hotel is built around a courtyard garden and comes equipped with plenty of facilities and amenities in addition to stylish accommodations. On-site, lodgers will find a bowling alley, a spa, a gym, a movie theater, a library and a rooftop terrace. And that's just within the hotel. Take a few steps outside the property's doors and you'll find Ham Yard's shopping village, equipped with a diverse array of independent shops. Beyond the confines of Ham Yard, troves of London's greatest treasures are within short walking distance, including the National Gallery, Buckingham Palace and the River Thames. Though, you may find it difficult to peel yourself away from Ham Yard's impeccably designed rooms. Expect cozy furnishings with pops of playful patterns including tall tufted headboards, colorful couches and sleek granite bathrooms with walk-in showers. Ham Yard Bar & Restaurant is equally eye-catching and serves incredible afternoon tea, according to guests.

    Free WiFi

    For top-notch facilities, well-appointed rooms and close proximity to several kid-friendly attractions, consider staying at London's Number Sixteen hotel. Inside each of the property's 41 guest rooms, you'll find pink, light blue or gray color palettes, plus crisp white Frette linens, an upholstered headboard, a flat-screen TV with a DVD player, a stocked minibar and RikRak toiletries. In-room spa treatments and kids amenities like books, child-sized bathrobes and cots can also be provided, but keep in mind that extra charges may apply. For some peace and quiet, retreat to the library, one of two drawing rooms or the property's garden, where you'll discover a small pond and a variety of trees and plants.

    Charlotte Street Hotel
    London
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 813 reviewsTripAdvisor (813)
    Free WiFi

    Guests love the superb customer service and boutique, trendy atmosphere at London's Charlotte Street Hotel. Inspired by influential early 1900s Brits (think: Virginia Woolf and John Maynard Keynes) known collectively as the Bloomsbury Group, the property's interior features bold colors and artwork from some of the group's members. Some of the hotel's most vivid decor resides in Oscar Bar & Restaurant, where visitors can savor seasonal dishes beneath a large mural or sip cocktails at the bar. Afternoon tea is also served at the restaurant and in the property's drawing room, and on select days, diners can pay an additional fee to watch a movie in the screening room before or after their meal. For those who'd rather watch a movie in the comfort of their room, the hotel offers loaner DVDs for in-room DVD players. Work desks, stocked minibars and Tivoli radios are provided in all accommodations as well. What's more, families can request connecting rooms and amenities like childrens bathrobes and toiletries, cots and babysitting services (for a charge). A spa and pool are not available on-site, but within walking distance, guests will find various restaurants and shops, plus must-visit sights like the British Museum and Piccadilly Circus.
