One of the swishest hotels in the capital, with its American art deco vibe throughout, The Beaumont exudes the hedonistic and sophisticated essence of the roaring '20s. Dimly lit bars, acres of maple furniture and a gallery’s worth of art – it’s smart, unpretentious and positively plush. It's high-end New York mixed with all the regality of old London. The small but perfectly formed spa in the basement of the chic hotel makes for a very fancy central London chill-out spot. But that’s not all: It also boasts one of the only Moroccan hammams in London. So as you’d expect, hammam treatments with a massage are one of the spa’s specialities (and must-haves). There's also a gym, steam room, and sauna which guests can use too. The hotel rooms themselves are just as blissfully designed and kitted out.
Best for: pretending to be both beautiful and damned
