London’s hotel scene is stuffed with topnotch quintessential Englishness a la ‘Downton Abbey’, but few can lay claim to being the watering hole of James Bond creator Ian Fleming and (some say) the home of the world’s best martini. Beyond Dukes’ bar, chic understated rooms feature regal purple and gold accents and manly but lovely marble bathrooms. The Cigar and Cognac Garden is the place to head for a post-dinner puff (though only of cigars purchased from the hotel).

We stayed at the Dukes over New Year's and enjoyed the bar every evening. Mauricio and his trusty martini cart were highlights of our stay in London! We loved the canapes -- scotch eggs made from quail eggs were a particular favorite! And the martinis and ambiance were spectacular!
