Europe’s first Grand Hotel wowed European royalty with electric lights, hydraulic lifts and air conditioning when it opened in 1865, and it still pulls fans in from around the world – including more than its fair share of celebrities. This may be something to do with its location opposite BBC TV Centre, but it’s just as likely to be down to the sheer comfort, class and relaxed atmosphere the hotel exudes, from the gorgeous spa and Palm Court dining room to the super-luxe classic rooms and suites.
