Located minutes from Buckingham Palace and just south of St. James Park, 51 Buckingham Gate has 86 luxury suites ranging from one to nine bedrooms, each featuring a palate of violet, bronze, fuchsia, and mustard paired with natural wood. Well suited for deep-pocketed travelers who are looking for a home-away-from-home environment, the upscale hotel offers amenities that include professional butler services and the Spa at 51, designed by Anne Sémonin. On-site restaurant Quilon is helmed by Head chef Sriram Aylu, a Michelin star recipient who brings the influences of Kerala India to his London dining room with dishes like lotus stem and soya bean chop or fresh lobster cooked with butter, pepper, and garlic.
