London Luxury Hotels

Style, elegance, and luxury are as much a part of London as fish and chips. The city is full to the brim with stunning architecture and lavish palaces as well as grand old hotels and high-end fashion stores—where better to treat yourself to a luxurious getaway? Indulge in some afternoon tea in the city that invented it before enjoying some retail therapy in a world-famous department store, and then round off your day with some celebrity-spotting at a Michelin-starred restaurant or exclusive champagne bar.

Things to see in London

London is crammed full of attractions for visitors looking for an indulgent vacation in the city. Taking afternoon tea at one of the city’s grand hotels is the epitome of the old-world British high life. Book a table at the Ritz or Savoy, or go for something a little different by enjoying your finger sandwiches and scones with clotted cream while cruising down the Thames on a luxury boat. London is home to a whole world of glamorous retail outlets and exclusive shopping districts but a good place to start is on Oxford Street, where you’ll find many up-market fashion outlets among its more than 300 stores. High-class designers such as Burberry and Louis Vuitton vie for your attention on two of London’s most famous thoroughfares, Bond Street and Mayfair. Another exclusive treat is a meal at one of the best restaurants in London, with Gordon Ramsey’s 3-Michelin-starred eatery a particular highlight.

There is hardly a city in the world that boasts as many luxury hotels as the British capital– all you have to do is decide on the area and style that best suits your needs, before booking your perfect boutique London hotel. Regal 19th-century grand hotels abound in Mayfair and Piccadilly, where you’ll enjoy beautifully appointed rooms and rub shoulders with the rich and famous in gourmet on-site restaurants. Massages, body wraps, treatments, and therapies await in many of the plentiful spa hotels on offer throughout the city—ideal for the ultimate relaxing luxury London vacation. Swimming pools, cocktail bars, and refined British service also come as standard.

Where to stay in London

Mayfair and Piccadilly are famous as two of the ritzier properties in the Monopoly board game, and the reality is no different– some of London’s most expensive real estate, and most impressive hotels, line the streets of these leafy neighborhoods. Renowned as London’s literary district, Bloomsbury offers plenty of quality hotels, and has the added bonus of being adjacent to the vibrant West End. If the main aim of your luxury vacation in London is to sample the city’s great shopping experiences, then booking a hotel in the Oxford Street and Bond Street area will put you right at the heart of the action.

How to get to London

For a city of its size (over 10 million residents), London is easy to navigate, chiefly thanks to its excellent public transportation network. 6 major international airports in and around the city give you a good range of options for air travel, but if you’re coming from the US or beyond, Heathrow will be your most likely port of call. Getting to the city center from here is easy, with numerous public transport connections available—including the lightening-fast Heathrow Express train which will have you at Paddington Station in 15 minutes. The iconic black taxis also offer high-end, comfortable transport around the town.
