Historic Hotels of London (10 of 10)

 Brown's Hotel, located in prestigious Mayfair, is part of the luxurious Rocco Forte Collection. The hotel is made up of 11 historic Georgian townhouses and no two of the 117 rooms are the same. The hotel has a reputation for its historic significance, including being the location where Rudyard Kipling wrote "The Jungle Book" and where Winston Churchill met frequently with diplomats.
London, one of the world's most vibrant and multicultural cities, is also well-known for its richly preserved history. Landmarks like Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, and Westminster Abbey attract visitors to this rainy corner of the world annually. And the city's museums, among them the Natural History Museum, Tate Britain, and the British Musuem, are not only rich in significance but also wonderfully free (in most cases) to visitors. It only follows that some of our favorite hotels have also been home to some historical achievements.
The Cadogan is an unpretentious boutique hotel with a prestigious Knightsbridge address. This 64-room hotel occupies a historic Edwardian townhouse on Sloane Street, in close proximity to local shopping. The property has a rich history, including the room where Oscar Wilde awaited his arrest in 1895 and another where King Edward VII met with his mistress, the British actress Lillie Langtry. Dukes Hotel is a pricey, prestigious 90-room boutique delivering an updated take on classic English luxury. It's quietly opulent and features plenty of special boutique amenities, such as a cognac and cigar garden, and a Drawing Room where traditional afternoon tea is served. The most notable feature, however, is Dukes Bar, once frequented by James Bond creator Ian Fleming, and the birthplace of the famous "Shaken, not stirred" line. (The bar is, naturally, famous for its martinis -- but note that there's a strict dress code.) Before St. James's was a luxurious boutique hotel, it had a distinguished past as an exclusive Gentlemen's Club. Previously owned by Sirs Michael Caine and Sean Connery -- and frequented by Winston Churchill and Gregory Peck -- this striking building on a quiet cul-de-sac in prestigious Mayfair now houses lavish accommodations. One of the more notable historical hotels in London, the Langham Hotel has been around since 1865 -- when it opened as the city's first purpose-built luxury hotel. The Palm Court is considered the birthplace of the afternoon tea tradition. The Town Hall Hotel and Apartments is located in London's artsy East End. Striking design mixes Edwardian influences with 1930s art deco style and contemporary touches. This hotel first opened as a town hall in 1910 and many of the rooms, studios, and apartments have original period details. Vintage furniture and modern kitchens make these loft-style rooms both functional and inviting. The hotel has also preserved the original town hall's Old Council Chambers complete with an original antechamber and fold-down wooden desks, which it uses as a theater-style venue. The Lanesborough, a St. Regis Hotel, is a luxurious property overlooking Hyde Park in Knightsbridge. The current property dates to 1844, and operated as a hospital for over a century before being converted into a hotel in 1991. The 93 rooms have palatial bathrooms, big flat-screen TVs, and free butler service. Stately decor is inspired by the early 19th century and some rooms have great views of Hyde Park. This exquisite luxury boutique hotel with just 28 rooms offers the elegance of a different time in England's history. Located in the upscale Knightsbridge neighborhood, Egerton House Hotel is a short walk from the famous Harrods Department store and renowned London museums. Rooms in this historic townhouse are individually decorated in rich fabrics, and have opulent bathrooms, free Wi-Fi, champagne on arrival, and candles at turndown. The common spaces are just as special, with a notable art collection -- including works by Picasso and Matisse -- and a gorgeous drawing room for afternoon tea. With a beautiful red brick Edwardian exterior and delicate Victorian antiques filling the interior, the Draycott is rich with period history. At an intimate 35 rooms, the vibe is more akin to a cozy country home than a hotel in one of the most bustling cities in the world: The Drawing Room is old-fashioned, with plush fabric sofas in flowery patterns, while the Library shows off an Edwardian fireplace complete with intricate period woodwork. Unique, endearing touches such as the meticulously hand-painted elevator doors and individual guest letterboxes complete the boutique charm. The Milestone is perhaps the most famous boutique hotel in London, and certainly lives up to its expectations, with exquisitely period-designed rooms and exceptional service. The service is where the hotel really shines, as each member of staff is superbly trained, which helps ensure guests get the first-rate luxury experience for which The Milestone is known. It also has a rich history -- there has been a building on this site since 1689, and the current hotel structure dates to the 1880s, when it was constructed by the founder of Leicester Square. (It underwent significant renovation after a 1986 fire). Brown's Hotel, located in prestigious Mayfair, is part of the luxurious Rocco Forte Collection. The hotel is made up of 11 historic Georgian townhouses and no two of the 117 rooms are the same.
