Anyone stayed in a luxury hotel in London that they would recommend?
how much can you spend, where do u wanna stay, what do you wanna do..
Yeh the Ritz, cant get anymore luxurious than that. Failing that try any of the hotels on park lane in London...some pretty nice rooms and prices to go with it
Backpackers or regents palace
dirt cheap and you get what you pay for.......
(yes I am taking the ****)
The Dorchester is pretty damned good. As is the Savoy. The Ritz of course is an institution. Claridges is pretty good and Gordon Ramsay runs that restaurant too.
What about The Dorchester? Tis very nice.
I stayed in The Millennium Hotel, just around the corner from Harrods while attending a training course in London. Although its a 'Thistle' Hotel I think, it was very very nice.
Can spend up to £1000. Needs to be pretty central.
for how long..
I'm fond of the Dorchester, it has a very nice Chinese restaraunt too
If you want something a little more avent guarde Myhotel is very nice www.myhotels.com
Special occasion you see.
Blakes in south ken was basically the first boutique hotel thats quite a nice joint.. if you can be a little more specific in ** needs
That Myplace2 at Myhotel Bloomsbury
- a terrace

- welcome gift
- flat screen TV with satellite channels
- exotic array of teas & coffees
- complimentary newspaper
- complimentary Time Out magazine

I thought it was very nice, haven't tried the one in Chelsea
The hotel itself has a high tech gym and a library
The Cumberland is billed as quite luxury but it's a bit of a dump if you ask me. Dated, slightly smelly, dark and the food wasn't up to much.
Well at £500 a night I was hoping for it to be a 5* hotel (doesn't have to be)
Just looking for somewhere quite central with a very nice room (maybe a Jacuzzi in the bathroom )
okay have a look at these:
http://www.baglionihotels.com/pages/eng_hp_londra.jsp (just dont eat there its overpriced and not that nice.)
http://www.firmdale.com/index.html (more of a modern feel Knightsbridge/Covent Garden/16 ones)
http://www.theetoncollection.com/content.aspx?pageID=430 (cool and modern)
http://www.milestonehotel.com/ (pretty nice small one)
http://www.blakeshotels.com/ (the one that started all these boutique things imo)
that should be you sorted.
when did you go? Didn't they refurb it not a long time ago?
I couldn't stay there for a romantic weekend.....I'd get distracted and upset him
If you are willing to look outside London and during the week you might get 2 nights at my favorite UK hotel.
Keep some money back for dinner though, you'll need it!
http://www.chewtonglen.com/ is meant to be pretty damn good
and theres also goring hotel on gros place thats meant to be v. v. good (top100 in world) but the website is dead.
You can read a bit on some of the hotels i linked above on this thing seems ok
For an occasion to remember, Ritz and Dorchester would be best. They are in a league of their own when it comes to quality and service. If you really want to spend £500 a night, you can get a mini Suite in either hotels for that price.
As already suggested, other choices include Claridges, Mandarin Oriental, Threadneedles and Savoy. If it gets any worse, InterContinental Hotel isn't a bad 5-star hotel but it lacks prestige. Avoid Park Lane Hotel (Sheraton) at any cost, not worth the price.
