Staying overnight in a West End Hotel makes your trip to the area so much more relaxed. It also means you’re not keeping one eye on the clock as you watch a show or enjoy dinner, because you’re worried about making the last train home. A hotel suite completes the whole experience of whatever else you’re doing while you’re in town, and a luxury suite gives you somewhere amazing to come back to after the theatre or restaurant.
The good news is that the West End is full of outstanding hotels, many of which offer luxury suites which mean you can really kick back and enjoy a decadent, indulgent night or weekend away in the UK’s capital. These options are particularly good ideas if you’re celebrating a significant birthday, anniversary or other big occasion. But a luxury suite is also a fantastic way of just enjoying some quality time with your partner and putting the stresses of everyday life on hold. Or perhaps you’d like to treat someone else to a luxury suite?
But which of the many luxury hotel suites on offer in London’s West End should you go for? Here we offer you a range of some of the finest ones available, helping you to decide on the one that’s right for you.
The Apartment Suite
The five-star Connaught in Mayfair enjoys a similarly superb location, with luxury suites to cater for every taste and mood. The Terrace Suite includes Mayfair’s biggest terrace, landscaped by a Chelsea Flower Show gold medallist. It commands exquisite city views with other highlights including your own bar, marble entrance hall and private elevator access. Bibliophiles will enjoy the gorgeous Library Suite, while the Eagle’s Lodge suite is designed to resemble a cabin on a luxury yacht from the 1930s, with porthole detailing and sailing ship paintings. The Prince’s Lodge takes the Peacock Palace in Kabul as its inspiration, with hand-carved furniture and maps and photos from 1870, alongside sculptures and stained-glass windows and 24-hour butler service. These are just some of the incredible suites you’ll find in this unique hotel.
The Royal Penthouse
Based on Whitehall Place, the Corinthia offers easy access to the West End. It has a number of amazing suites within its accommodation portfolio, including the Deluxe Junior, fitted with luxurious, oversized king beds, or the Whitehall Suites, incorporating 85 square metres of some of this hotel’s most exclusive accommodation. Meanwhile, the beautifully designed Trafalgar Suites, at 95 square metres, include incredible (and unusual) views over Trafalgar Square. Alternatively, the River Suites offer stunning 180⁰ vistas over the Thames, taking in some of the city’s key landmarks from St Paul’s Cathedral to the London Eye.
The Royal Suite
A similarly five-star welcome awaits at The Ritz, on Piccadilly. Enjoy the ultimate peaceful retreat from the pace of the UK’s capital in a palatial Signature Suite. Finished to perfection, this high-quality, luxurious accommodation also offers breathtaking views across the city. The Green Park suite combines tranquillity and traditional elegance; the Royal Suite is a vast affair on two levels and based in the former private rooms of ex-Prime Minister Lord Pelham in an eighteenth-century mansion which is connected to the main hotel and offers privacy on a palatial scale. The Prince of Wales suite is a penthouse with a choice of two or three bedrooms, and another luxurious option.
The Royal Suite
Based on The Strand, the Savoy is one of London’s most famous landmarks, with everything the West End has to offer just steps away. Over the decades, it has hosted countless well-known names. Among its 267 luxury rooms are a number of suites in the English Edwardian or Art Deco styles. Many have dramatic views over the Thames, and some of the city’s most famous landmarks – all come with their own butler service.
The new sixth-floor, riverside Savoy Suite has an open, light-filled layout with panoramas over Westminster. Expect two bedrooms, your own luxury bar, dressing room with lounge and fireplace. Meanwhile, the Royal Suite, only opened in the summer of 2016, is a veritable procession of rooms, spanning the whole of one side of the fifth floor. Complete with Morning Room, dressing room, bar and deep Jacuzzi bathtub, this luxury suite offers elegance and every last imaginable home comfort. Finally, the Personality Suites are named after some of the Savoy’s celebrated guests from the past, and have unique furniture, artwork and other mementos associated with their famous namesakes.
These are just some of the West End hotels offering luxury suites among their accommodation. The Langham on Portland Place, Regent Street, is another. Its two-bedroom Infinity Suite has a king-size four poster bed in the master room, while the Sterling Suite is a penthouse with city views and king-size beds. Meanwhile the Terrace Suite, with its views over Regent Street and beyond, is an unforgettable space with a good-size balcony.
