There are more to come too as we continue to explore the city to find the best.
Hyde Park Suite – The Wellesley Knightsbridge, a Luxury Collection Hotel
The luxurious district of Knightsbridge is a luxury hotel lovers dream. One hotel that stands out is the incredible Wellesley Knightsbridge. Petite in size at just 36 rooms, which means attention to detail is flawless and service is personal. Art Deco features adorn the walls, it feels like stepping back in time to an age of 1920’s elegance, while finishing touches like a butler and a chauffeur services for guests further elevate the luxury experience. The hotel has three suites and a penthouse, one of its finest suites is the Hyde Park Suite. This park view suite allows you plenty of room to relax and unwind. The bedrooms are beautifully finished with contemporary touches and elegant artwork that pays homage to the building’s Art Deco past. Illuminated with 1920s finesse throughout, the spacious lounge leads to an adjoining, king-sized bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The elegant One Bedroom Suites at The Wellesley feature an assortment of luxury amenities for your comfort and convenience. Finished in the finest Arabescato Corchia marble from the Cararra region of Italy, the generous bathroom features a bath, shower and double vanity area with Hermès Eau d’Orange Verte toiletries.

Royal Suite – Jumeirah Carlton Tower
Another luxurious property in Knightsbridge is the Jumeirah Carlton Tower, located on Sloan Street you are moments away from some of the best shopping in London. The property has a rich history as a luxury hotel having opened back as the Carlton Tower in 1961 when it was the first modern 5 star hotel in Knightsbridge. Chelsea socialites flocked to the hotel, while fashion designers used it as backdrop to fashion shoots. In 2001 it was bought by Emirati based Jumeirah Hotel Group and rebranded into what it is now known as the Jumeriah Carlton Tower. The hotel offers 58 suites and the star suite in the property is the Royal Suite, which is fit for a king, literally! Interiors for the Royal Suite were created by International Designer Khuan Chew. Chew has used rich, handcrafted materials, from Italian and French furniture, handmade rugs and carpets through to granite and stone flooring. Styling gives a nod to the avant-garde with a leather canopy in the bedroom and Swarovski crystals on the bathroom ceiling. The bathroom also comes complete with wet room, infinity bath with chromatherapy lights and inset TV, walk-in rain shower and flooring inlaid with jasper and marble.

The Wimpole Suite – The Marylebone Hotel
Marylebone is undoubtedly London’s most chic urban village, and in our opinion, it is also home to some of London’s most beautiful hotel suites, at The Marylebone Hotel, part of the Doyle Collection of properties. The hotel’s prestigious Terrace Suites are signature rooms which occupy the top floor of the hotel. As you might imagine, each suite comes with its own terrace. Yet what you might not guess is just how smart these spaces are. Each luxe suite has an all-weather furnished terrace, which can be a cosy space with fireplace, or thanks to some very clever technology, become a sun-drenched open-air space by just the flick of a switch. Using the remote control, the space can be transformed quickly into an al fresco living room. The roof folds back and the window blinds roll up, and presto, welcome summer! The terrace is designed & furnished as a contemporary Mediterranean outside salon – and for those chilly London nights, the roof and window blinds can close and there is a real gas flame fire to create a cosy atmosphere. The rest of the suite is equally impressive with sophisticated décor and high-quality fittings.
