Rosewood London

252 High Holborn, London, WC1V 7EN, England

So striking it was featured in the movie Howards End, this landmark structure (built by the Pearl Assurance Company in 1914) now houses a beautiful hotel with a clubby atmosphere, subtly elegant India Jane fabrics, and huge, comfortable beds. The Holborn Dining Room has won praise for its excellent modern British food, while the hotel bar is a joy, with its marble-and-walnut decor and battered shelves lined with antiquarian books. And if you feel in need of some serious pampering, the Sense day spa in the basement is a peaceful, relaxing cocoon.
