The exuberant Chesterfield is perched equidistant from Oxford Street and Buckingham Palace, making it an ideal spot for tourists. It oozes traditional British charm – a wood panelled lobby with ornamented pillars, old oil paintings, chandelier and palms and heavy drapes and leather. Rooms range from floral and feminine to darker tones, all furnishined with fine fabrics and furnishings. 

Claridge's

If shimmering art deco glamour is your bag, Claridge’s has it in shedloads, with elegant modern touches and intuitive, highly-tailored service. You'll find attention to detail throughout the hotel, from the ’30s-inspired cocktails at the Fumoir to the smart grey stained-glass skylights of Michelin-starred Fera and even the breathtaking rooms and suites.

The Connaught has been accomodating tourists and locals alike since 1897. Bedrooms – in delicate pales – are unique, each with a king-size bed, mood lighting, cashmere throws and Italian linens. Sip mouth-watering cocktails at Connaught Bar or Coburg Bar, and tuck into regional French flavours at Hélène Darroze’s two-Michelin-starred restaurant. Get a proper pampering at Aman Spa, which offers healing treatments drawn from the traditions of Asia and the Americas. 

The Dorchester

Mayfair is pretty synonymous with the high glam Dorcester.
