You might have heard the expression “neither a borrower or a lender be”. However, in some of London’s top hotels, you’re actively encouraged to borrow things during your stay.
From Burberry coats to designer dresses and wireless phone chargers, London’s hotels are nothing if not generous. And you don’t always have to pay through the nose for the luxury of borrowing something during your stay.
Check out these hotels willing to lend you something during your stay…
Step out in Burberry at The Connaught
You never know when you might get caught in the rain in London. So having a designer trench coat on hand can only improve your stay.

At The Connaught, as well as sister hotels Claridge’s and The Berkeley, suite guests get a Burberry trench coat to wear during their stay. Each suite comes with a coat, and guests only need to call down to reception to get the correct fit. If you just can’t bear to leave the garment behind when you leave, you can buy it to take with you. It will add a further £995 to your bill though.
Say yes to the dress at W London
As we recently reported, the W London Leicester Square has a new service for its suite guests.

If a Burberry trench coat is a bit too limited, try the W’s Walk Out Wardrobe.
You can have a specially curated collection of designer clothes bought to your room, and you can pick an outfit to wear for the night. The service is run in partnership with Girl Meets Dress, who hire out designer dresses. If you don’t see anything you like on the rack, simply order something from their catalogue to arrive for the next day.
Staying connected at M by Montcalm
At M by Montcalm, it’s all about technology. They are based in Tech City, after all. There’s no need to worry about your phone going flat, with a wireless phone charger available for all guests to use.

In an age when your phone can run out of battery before you’ve managed to get out the door, there can be few things that are more useful. You can also get a complimentary SIM card for your stay, which is especially useful for international guests – but you don’t have to give that back!
If you’re looking for other things to borrow, think bicycles. Several hotels have bikes and bike helmets to lend their guests. It’s a great way to explore the city, so try Qbic or The Hoxton Shoreditch. Otherwise, head to the hotels above to mooch off their unique services.
