If you haven’t reached chocolate overload just yet, have a gander at some of these super-chocolatey afternoon teas… Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Tea at One […]

by Laura on April 24, 2014

Today we’ve invited The Veggie Traveller (bio below) to write this blog post for us about the best London hotel restaurants for vegetarians. Vegetarians are spoilt for choice in London, and it’s not only the many standalone restaurants across the capital giving us non-meat eaters something to celebrate. A large number of the capital’s hotels […]

I’m a big fan of hotels that celebrate their birthdays mainly because it usually means lots of special events, discounts and themed packages. Two hotels which are doing it particularly well this year are the London Hilton on Park Lane and The Langham which have both created special afternoon tea menus with added quirks. The […]


‘Spies the Limit’ at the Hilton on Park Lane.

by Jules on September 26, 2012

With the Jubilee, Olympics and London Fashion Week now behind us, London hotels are looking for other events to tag their packages onto.  And it looks like the 50th anniversary of James Bond is the latest celebration to shake up the city’s hotel scene.  First up was the Jumeirah Carlton Tower which created two packages […]


What women want from hotels.

by Andrea on March 1, 2012

Since my blog colleague Holly recently published a scathing and funny critique of the ‘women only’ service at Duke’s, I wanted to offer hoteliers some further thoughts on how they might cater to women’s needs from a professional working female perspective. Admittedly, business-oriented hotels have traditionally been very masculine places.  Even the decor often showed that such hotels were designed primarily for men – sporting prints and […]

Thirty odd years ago, a hotel’s business centre was essential to business travellers: without it, you simply couldn’t communicate.  You needed the fax back then for a start and later when the internet arrived you needed a networked computer to connect to it (and wouldn’t imagine getting one in your room).  In fact, you relied on […]


Best luxury London hotels for foodies.

by Andrea on November 8, 2010

I’ve had some truly horrible meals in hotels. After all, hoteliers know they’ve got a captive market – people who are too tired, lazy or jet-lagged to want to head out to a restaurant; so the quality of the food may often be compromised even in otherwise decent hotels. Bland ‘international’ cuisine that’s low on […]

London hotel bars with stunning views.

by Andrea on September 10, 2010

One of my favourite things in life is a great view. And although you could go to Parliament Hill on Hampstead Heath, you don’t necessarily have to struggle up a hill to gain access to a wonderful vista; you can also enjoy London’s best views with a drink in your hand. The Hilton on Park […]


London’s most boring hotel buildings.

by Rajul on June 16, 2010

In our last blog post we highlighted several of London’s ugliest buildings. Now let’s go a step further and put the spotlight on some of the city’s least attractive hotel buildings.  Though it’s probably more accurate to call the following “nondescript”  or “uninspiring” rather than “ugly”. Ironically, they often mask some pretty respectable hotels, which […]

Loyalty wars: IHG versus Hilton.

by Rajul on February 12, 2010

Both IHG (which owns the Holiday Inn, Hotel Indigo, InterContinental and Crowne Plaza brands among others) and Hilton have lots of London hotels. For members of their excellent loyalty schemes, the ability to cash in points is essential.  Which is why we’ve already helped identify the best Hiltons and best IHG hotels in London based […]

As one hotelier once put it to me, the hotel business is simply “people serving people”.  So the quality and training of staff, particularly at the luxury end, is absolutely critical. Different hotels have subtly different recruitment philosophies.  Why should you care about this when you choose a hotel? Because attentive and friendly staff are […]
