The Royal Garden Hotel is a busy and vibrant 396-room option located in the heart of Kensington. Sophisticated, contemporary rooms are spacious with big flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, minibars, and (mostly) king-size beds. Some rooms have beautiful views overlooking Hyde Park while all have upscale bathrooms and tea/coffee facilities. Hotel features include a fitness center with kickboxing and Latin dance classes, a spa with a range of treatments, and two restaurants -- the ground-floor Park Terrace restaurant and the 10th-floor gourmet Chinese restaurant, Min Jiang. There is also a great hotel bar, Bertie's Bar. A five-minute walk from the nearest tube station, this hotel is a good pick for its Kensington location and chic modern style.
