Luxury Hotels in London
The best place to watch where money is flowing in is not the stock exchange but in the lobbies of few luxurious hotels. Most of the Elegant high backed sofas are occupied by Middle Eastern Guests with friends and families or some sitting next to their lawyers and fixers who listen and scribble.
A few decades ago London’s hotels were shabby, their rooms empty. Since the crash, without anyone in the real world noticing, they have found success in a new role: as the places where the capital’s new class of plutocrats like to do business; the unofficial bourses of London’s transformation into the richest city in the world. The Middle East’s wealthiest men have grown so fond of London’s posh hotels that they have bought almost all of them. Though it was very difficult to be able to compile, but here is a list of ten of the top-most luxury hotels in London.
1. The Goring, Belgravia – Rooms from $900
The Hotel is across the road from Buckingham Palace with its own huge private garden surrounded by flower borders and shrubbery, with a central lawn. It has been recently renovated and unveiled its ravishing new front hall clad with hand painted wallpaper of exotic animals.
2. The Wellesley Hotel, Knightsbridge - $ 830
The hotel is buffered by Harrods and Harvey Nichols on one side, and the West End’s theatres and restaurants on the other; Hyde Park is just across the road, too. Wealthy, discerning travellers who have tired of London’s longstanding luxury hotels. Middle Eastern visitors make up a notable proportion of the Wellesley’s guests.
3. The Savoy Hotel, Strand - $750
An equal spread of wealthy European, Asian and business travellers drawn to what is recognised the world over as one of the quintessential Grande Dame hotels. The best of central London encircles this long-standing hotel. Just off the Strand, it is surrounded by theatres, the restaurants of Soho and a coterie of top-class attractions, from the National Gallery to the Houses of Parliament.
4. Chiltern Firehouse Hotel, Marylebone, London - $700
The more ornamental and frivolous types can be seen in the restaurant; guests of the hotel tend to be at the top of their professions, and interesting, many American. Housed in a fire station dating from 1887, the building has huge charm. The street on which Chiltern Firehouse stands has been recently regenerated street and is now lined with interesting shops.
5. Shangri-La at the Shard Hotel, London - $650
