A stone’s throw from London’s finest green spaces (Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens) is this 107-room hotel, once three separate townhouses occupied by members of Parliament and the city’s aristocrats. Like many of London’s most refined quarters, modernity and antiquity exist in perfect harmony. Crystal chandeliers dangle in front of flat-screen TV’s; gilt-frame mirrors accent heated towel racks. The library is home to antique and vintage editions, and at the Butlers Restaurant, traditional roasts can be selected directly from a roving trolley. Book an Executive-class room for nightly canapés delivered en-suite.
