    Claridge's has welcomed celebrities like Audrey Hepburn and Bing Crosby and royals like Queen Victoria and Prince Albert since it opened its doors in 1856. To match the property's elite clientele, many of the hotel's suites were redesigned by notable designers like Diane von Furstenberg and David Linley in the 2000s.

    Past travelers had a hard time finding fault in their stay at the Brown's Hotel. Flawless service, luxurious rooms and an enviable address were just a few of the standout attributes guests cited. Rocco Forte is situated in the posh neighborhood of Mayfair, just blocks from Green Park and Buckingham Palace, as well as shopping havens Regent Street and Oxford Street. Within Brown's walls – which have played host to royals, presidents and world-renowned authors – lodgers will find rooms decorated in neutral earth tones and outfitted with wingback headboards and chairs, as well as geometric light fixtures. Accommodations are also equipped with complimentary Wi-Fi access and Samsung Smart TVs. The property also boasts a fitness center with personal trainers, a spa and on-site dining. The Hix Mayfair serves up traditional British fare and Donovan Bar – modeled after 1960s London – hosts live music weekly. And of course, no London hotel would be complete without afternoon tea, which can be found in the English Tea Room, where Queen Victoria once had a "cuppa."

    Guests describe a morning in one of The Dorchester's elegant rooms as waking up in a "haven of tranquility." With views of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens from the window of your spacious room or suite, The Dorchester Hotel and its comfortable accommodations make sure you start your day off on the right foot. What's more, freshly baked pastries or breakfast await downstairs at The Grill at The Dorchester. Opportunities for exploration from the property abound: The buzzing Park Lane, Mount Street Gardens and Hyde Park Corner are all just a short stroll away. To adventure to other attractions, the hotel offers chauffeur services, where you have a selection of classic Rolls-Royce models to choose from, so you can travel in style. After a few hours on your feet, head back to The Dorchester for afternoon tea at the Promenade. Visitors say the selection of teas and tasty cakes come at a high price, but that the quality of the delights justifies the cost. If you're looking for other ways to unwind, the hotel offers a variety of luxurious spa treatments (the spa includes its own restaurant), a fitness center and a steam room. You won't have to look far for evening plans either: The on-site theater desk manager will guide you to one of the city's best shows and the concierge can recommend an exquisite eatery. But be sure to try some of the hotel's restaurants as well. If you want to splurge, Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester boasts three Michelin stars. Finally, don't forget a nightcap at The Bar, which serves drinks from award-winning mixologists.

    Whether staying for a weekend getaway or an extended business trip, The Piccadilly London West End provides an excellent basecamp for London visitors. The courteous staff members received rave reviews from past travelers, who were especially appreciative of the complimentary welcome drinks at check-in. The hotel's employees also happily share their favorite spots around the city, as well as scenic routes to Piccadilly Circus, Chinatown and other nearby attractions. Back at the property, each of the hotel's 67 rooms features a pillow menu, a Nespresso machine, an honesty bar, fresh fruit and heated bathroom floors. Guests appreciated the complimentary smartphones, which they found particularly helpful for exploring the large city, and they also commended the readily available and attentive concierge. Outside their accommodations, travelers have access to the hotel's gym and spa (and can also request spa treatments in their rooms). A trip to London is incomplete without an Indian-inspired meal, and The Piccadilly is home to Hankies, an Indian street food restaurant and bar that guests praise for its unique dishes and pre-theater cocktails. This eatery offers a variety of menus from breakfast to lunch to dinner, with an additional festive menu for a unique culinary experience.
