London Sets the Standard in Luxury Hotels

London is one of the most visited capitals in the world and for good reason. England as an Empire ruled almost half the world and so its capital London has a history that can equate to most of the world. Perhaps London’s history is as interesting as anywhere else. The city’s full history dating back to before even the Roman times, can be seen at the Museum of London. Then there is the Tower of London with its own 900 year history and which today, is the home to the British Monarchy’s Crown jewels. Add to that the legendary changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace which is still the primary home to the world’s longest ruling Monarch, the beautiful Trafalgar Square with its magnificent Nelson’s Column and you have plenty of reasons to visit. But where to stay for that visit is a question that many ask. Luckily, part of this city’s history includes setting the standard for luxury hotels. If it is luxury that you want whilst on your visit, you have wide range of choices to book five star hotels.

Perhaps of special note is The Ritz Hotel, whose name alone is often used to replace the word luxury and elegance. Located in Piccadilly it has one of the finest addresses in the city and it is ideally situated for visiting London’s Royal Parks or the famous Piccadilly Circus. Decorated in France’s Louis XV1 style throughout, this is a prime example of how London’s hotels have set the standard in luxury for the last 100 years. For at least 50 years a hotel that has always been attached to London when there is talk of luxury, is the Dorchester with its views over-looking Hyde Park. Located between the notable Hyde’s Park Corner and Marble Arch, this hotel is ideally situated for shopping at Harrods.

Of course though, these are not the only luxury hotels in London. Among the others is one noted in a personal travel blog, The Trafalgar Hilton. This luxury hotel with its pendulum lamps and walnut furniture offers luxury at its best. The Trafalgar Hilton also provides excellent views of the popular Trafalgar Square.

Yes, London is well worth a visit even without its history. A stay in one of these famous luxurious hotels is alone worth a journey. And for those that are not so keen on history, London also offers other attractions if you wish to pry yourself loose from your hotel’s luxurious elegance. Among these other attractions is the Coca Cola London Eye which offers visitors 32 capsules which can hold up to 25 people each. The Eye raises you above the city so you can see as many as 55 of London’s famous landmarks, including of course Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and Tower Bridge. Another London attraction, one which has recently been given a new look, is the legendary Wembley Stadium where, by taking a tour, you can learn of some of sports most famous moments.
