The exclusive Metropolitan hotel is often known as one of Kate Moss's favorite London hangout spots. The upscale drinking and dining scene is spread between the world-famous modern Japanese restaurant Nobu -- winner of a Michelin star -- and the Met Bar, host of many private celebrity bashes. With a chic, immaculate white lobby and fantastic service, this is a hotel for discerning travelers who like to party.
