In a city as historically fabled as London, it’s no surprise that many of its hotels are as prestigious as the quintessentially royal properties they neighbor. So, instead of staying at a run-of-the-mill roadway inns, a room at one of these emblematic accommodations should be in order: St. Ermin’s Hotel, Autograph Collection – Like a diamond set in the middle of two sapphires, St. Ermin’s is situated in the heart of Westminster right between the eponymous abbey and Buckingham Palace. The hotel’s classic architecture and antique interior design components are complemented by state-of-the-art technologies and modern amenities. After a day exploring the wonderful neighborhood, recharge your batteries with a classic British afternoon tea at the Tea Lounge at St. Ermin’s. The Rembrandt – Just south of Hyde Park, and equidistant from the Natural History Museum and the world-famous Harrod’s department store, the historic Rembrandt pampers its guests in understated elegance from the moment they step foot through the lobby door. Enjoy an aromatic exfoliation or other body-rejuvenating treatment at Aquilla Spa, savor a traditional roast lunch at the Palette Restaurant, and sip a proper Pimm’s No. 1 cocktail at the 1606 Lounge Bar. Sofitel London St. James – Repurposed from the former Cox’s and King’s Bank building just steps from Trafalgar Square and the National Portrait Gallery, the Sofitel is a destination in its own right. The expert therapists at the award-winning So SPA are trained in multiple exhilarating international treatments. And, the well-appointed guestrooms and Balcon restaurant are both a splendid mix of French chic and British charm. Perhaps the best display of world fusion at the Sofitel, though, is in its St. James Bar signature seasonal cocktail menu which features flavors, spirits, and mixers from around the globe. The Bailey's Hotel London – Spend your London nights in a bygone time with a stay at The Bailey’s. This Victorian-era townhome has been renovated into one of the city’s most stunning luxury hotels. Detailed stonework, stained glass windows, and a sweeping lobby staircase punctuate the posh property. While its fashionable South Kensington neighborhood serves as a beacon to pleasure-seekers, business travelers will appreciate The Bailey’s proximity to the Millennium Conference Centre next door.

London is host to some of the most exciting seasonal events in the U.K.: BluesFest: In November, cut a rug to the sounds of major musical acts at this music festival.
