This gracious boutique hotel is a favorite entry in the little black books of many a visiting high-society fashionista—Harrods is the merest toss of a diamond from the front door. The high-ceilinged, contemporary rooms have muted, sophisticated colors and a plethora of thoughtful extras: flowers and chocolates when you arrive, complimentary free afternoon tea, and even free drinks in the evening. Beds in deluxe rooms are huge, and junior suites have little sitting rooms that feel like designer furnishing stores. Four of the rooms have wrought-iron balconies. The exceptionally helpful staff make everything run as smooth as silk.
