Built in 1914, the structure is an impressive Edwardian Belle design, and it showcases items like a wrought-iron carriage entryway and a stunning seven-story marble staircase that will take your breath away. Each of the 262 rooms is lavishly decorated in a way that reflects the history of London, and those who want to splurge can indulge in one of the suites or even in the Manor House Suite, which is 5 rooms with private entrance.

Sparrows Hotel: Palm Springs
Palm Springs has long been known as a luxury getaway, but growing hotels can make trips to the area feel less than exclusive. That is why the Sparrows Hotel, which opened its doors this October, has decided to have just 19 rooms available to guests in its ranch-style accommodation. Every single thing in the hotel has been chosen carefully and for a reason, and guests will appreciate the attention to detail in everything from the hand-carved wooden furniture to the outdoor fireplaces. A refurbished barn has tons of character and serves as the onsite dining option, and a sprawling and luxurious pool rounds out the impressive amenities at the Sparrows Hotel in Palm Springs.
