Luxury summer escape at the Lanesborough.

A family-friendly Apsley suite at the Lanesborough: traditionally-furnished but with lots of discreet technology "under the hood"

If you are going to break the bank for a luxury London hotel, it’s important that the experience is memorable, giving you a sense it was money well-spent.  And it helps too if every little detail is taken care of for you.

That is why the Lanesborough near Hyde Park – with its army of personal butlers – is usually on the shortlist of luxury seekers everywhere, despite having some of the most expensive rooms in London.

One of the hotel’s main attractions is the fact that its exceptional Managing Director, Mr Gelardi, is passionate about giving “freebies” to guests once they have paid the hotel’s (admittedly lofty) basic room rate.

In this same spirit, the hotel has crafted an interesting “summer holiday escape” offer for families staying in one of its comfy Apsley suites.

The “package” – if one can describe such a supremely luxurious experience so tackily – puts the emphasis firmly on London’s prime family attractions like the London Eye, Buckingham Palace and the city’s major museums.

The Lanesborough is the ideal base for a luxurious, chauffeur-driven sightseeing tour

The concierge has crafted an exclusive itinerary to keep the whole family amused on a 3-day tour of the city’s essential sights.  You’ll be chauffeur-driven to all of London’s main attractions with everything taken care of.

Back at the hotel, the children’s amenities include a dedicated kids’ butler, unlimited movies, books and games, personalised gifts and more.

For adults there’s the hidden-away Garden Room bar as well as Apsleys restaurant by Heinz Beck with its lighter interpretation of Italian classics.  There is also a lovely and rather understated spa at the Lanesborough.

The Lanesborough’s summer offer is only available for a short period.  Accommodation provided in one of the hotel’s family-friendly suites is superb – though it may still set you back more than a grand per night.

Contact the hotel directly for full offer terms – though do also try the London Hotels Insight metasearch to bag an even better deal (though note you’ll need to book direct with the hotel for the above special offer).

Finally, if you absolutely must stay in complete luxury then the Langham has recently opened some sumptuous newly-refurbished suites.
