Town Hall Hotel

Town Hall Hotel Rating: 5.0 Pearls

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. All rooms have free Wi-Fi and iPod docks. Bathrooms are especially luxurious, most with soaking tubs and separate walk-in showers. Vintage furniture and modern kitchens make these loft-style rooms both functional and inviting. Hotel amenities include a nice indoor pool, a fitness room, and a stylish Michelin-rated restaurant. While some guests might feel that the location is isolated from London's top attractions, the Town Hall Hotel offers great value for money in a hip neighborhood.
The Royal Horseguards

The Royal Horseguards Rating: 5.0 Pearls

The 282-room Royal Horseguards offers classic Victorian architecture and modern amenities in a five-star luxury setting with views of the London Eye and the Thames River. Ornate sculpting, stunning high ceilings, and romantic archways are all dominant elements that complement a rich history -- the Royal Horseguards housed the Secret Service during World War I. The hotel, with a horse guards theme throughout, connects to One Whitehall Place, the palatial meeting and events space.
Threadneedles Hotel

Threadneedles Hotel Rating: 5.0 Pearls

Elegant and eclectic, this 74-room luxury boutique hotel set in the heart of London's City District has been converted from an original Victorian banking hall, and retains stunningly beautiful period features. With elegant common spaces, abundant luxury amenities, and warmly inviting rooms, it doesn't seem as if there's much to fault at this hotel, but guests have complained about slow Wi-Fi.
The Beaufort Hotel

The Beaufort Hotel Rating: 5.0 Pearls

Featuring only 29 rooms, this quaint-and-cozy boutique hotel offers an inviting, intimate experience in the middle of the posh residential neighborhood of Knightsbridge. As to be expected with a tiny boutique hotel, rooms lack extra space, but the decor is fresh and modern with neutral colors and the occasional designer-like touch (like stacked glass-ball lamps and pretty patterned wallpaper) -- though the random uninspired watercolor paintings feel a bit misplaced. Perhaps because of the surrounding area, rooms rates are here are above average despite the fact that rooms are missing some basic amenities (like a mini bar). But the free daily traditional English cream tea with homemade scones and the open bar in the evenings are definite perks.
The Montcalm at the Brewery London City

The Montcalm at the Brewery London City Rating: 5.0 Pearls

The Montcalm at the Brewery is a stunning five-pearl hotel located at the northern edge of London's Square Mile, just across the street from the famous Barbican Centre for performing arts. The hotel is housed in a historically protected building that was once a brewery. The 236 modern rooms have purple and green decor, and the extensive features include a fine dining restaurant, a casual, quirky gastropub, and a wellness area. Its financial district location is a bit far from most tourist sights, making it better suited for business travelers.
Langham Hotel London

Langham Hotel London Rating: 5.0 Pearls

Luxurious, stately, and composed, this 380-room hotel projects an air of exclusivity. Certain amenities seem meager for a five-pearl luxury brand, however -- even the "complimentary" evening champagne is offered in conservative amounts and presented with a full champagne menu, presumably to encourage extra spending. But for a certain quintessentially English air of prestige without the usual pretension, and a premier location for West End shopping, this is a good place to be. The ultra-luxurious Chuan Spa, 16-meter pool, and salt sauna don't hurt its high-end credentials either.
Draycott Hotel

Draycott Hotel Rating: 5.0 Pearls

This 35-room combo of Edwardian townhouses is warm and intimate with a country home feel, and in a great location for exclusive West End shopping. With wonderful boutique perks such as the free English afternoon tea (guests at other hotels will have to pay at least a £15 premium to enjoy such a tradition), free pre-dinner champagne, and free hot chocolate before bed, it’s hard to find much at the Draycott to complain about. Unless, of course, your priorities are a pool and fitness center, both of which the hotel lacks.
The Goring

The Goring Rating: 5.0 Pearls

The Goring is a classic English boutique hotel with ample royal heritage. Opened in 1910, the property has intricate sculpted details and unusually wide hallways -- said to have been designed to allow free passage of ladies’ ball gowns. The Goring offers five-star hospitality with abundant luxury, and its refined elegance is demonstrated through details such as the original Edwardian architecture and bespoke silk wallpaper. Buckingham Palace tours are available in the summer and nearby underground Tube access allows for travel to other parts of London.
The Stafford London

The Stafford London Rating: 5.0 Pearls

The 105-room Stafford London is a polished, five-pearl boutique hotel set in one of central London's swankiest neighborhoods. The property has a rich history, from its 17th-century aristocratic roots to its preserved World War II bomb shelter. Rooms are homey yet refined and the hotel's tucked-away, intimate vibe is a big plus, though spa and pool facilities you'd expect from a five-pearl property are missing. There are also cheaper upscale options in the area -- compare rates with the nearby St. James's Hotel and Club.
