London Design Agenda will introduce you some of the most incredible places for you to stay while you are visiting London that will make you dream! We breath London everyday and this is the city where you havesome of the best hotels and these businesses are crucial to tourism as many of the world’s wealthiest demand the highest standards for their visits to this region.
The Savoy Hotel
The Savoy Hotel is set back from the busy Strand and above the river on an island between two busy roads.
The style is Edwardian on the river side, Art Deco on the Strand side, where Gordon Ramsay has reopened the Savoy Grill. Bedrooms are large and fresh, safely traditional without being frumpy.
The Dorchester Hotel looks like a great ocean going liner, and stands on one of the most prestigious thoroughfares in London, Park Lane.
The service across the hotel is second to none, an impressive combination of easy-going but always polite charm and personality and superb efficiency.
The Langham is currently one of the best hotels in London and is now in the hands of hoteliers from Hong Kong.
Once you get over the fact that there is absolutely nothing British about the way the Langham now looks, you realise that its new quasi-Oriental slant is really very welcome and well-executed.
The Mandarin Oriental
The Mandarin Oriental backs on to Hyde Park itself, with a welcome new outdoor terrace.
In Mondraian, which is one of the best hotels in London, you will find a Far Eastern slant on the people-friendly, easy-going part Edwardian, part contemporary ground floor but corridors and bedrooms that are so deeply traditional in decoration that I had to pinch myself to remember that I was in an Oriental hotel at all.
The Queen would surely feel at home; quite right – after all, it was in the dreamy ballroom in the 1930s that she and Princess Margaret learned to dance.
Claridge’s hotel is a legendary bolthole for kings, queens, grannies and Barbara Cartland now more frequented by those in search of British pomp with a modern twist.
