An evening in the capital can be a magical experience. From fine dining to laughing, crying and applauding at one of the West End’s theatrical masterpieces, there is very little scope for anything other than joviality and excitement. However, when the final curtain falls and the last sip of wine has been taken, the hideous prospect of a train ride home begins to loom. Even for those living in London, the idea of this cumbersome anti-climax is tedious to say the least. So, why not avoid the ordeal altogether and complete the perfect night by staying in one of London’s fabulous hotels? Whether you’re after luxury and extravagance or simple elegance, there is a hotel to suit every taste and budget within the region of London’s West End.
The Hospital Club
The Hospital Club is home to 15 unique rooms, each with its own striking décor and state of the art technology. Ranging from palatial suites down to cosy overnighters, the hotel has a variety of rooms to suit all needs, each with the common factor of sublime comfort. By staying in the hotel, guests are afforded access to all of the hotel’s facilities, including the restaurant, lounge and screening room.
Charlotte Street Hotel
This beautiful hotel encompasses everything we love about contemporary modern London design and subtly blends it with some of the more traditional elements of British décor. The finishing effect is a hotel that is incredibly easy on the eye, the perfect accompaniment to its high comfort level and fantastic location, just minutes from the shopping heaven of Oxford Street and the hustle and bustle of Soho.
Once the home of William Hazlitt, a legend of English prose, this hotel consists of three townhouses, which have been carefully renovated into a spectacular hotel. Each room is individually decorated with Victorian furnishings and rich fabrics. Not only is the hotel a work of art, but the staff that work there will do everything in their power to get you tables, tickets and more.
The iconic building that houses the Rosewood hotel is reason enough to pay this property a visit. The English heritage building displays a striking example of Edwardian architecture, juxtaposing brilliantly with the carefully designed modern interior.
