Just down the road from the Albert Hall, this gorgeous, friendly hotel has a luxurious mixture of the comfortable and the extraordinary. The lobby evokes a wealthy estate from centuries past, and upstairs most rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated in calming neutral tones with rich fabrics. A few rooms are spectacular. One is a Tudor fantasy, with minstrel gallery, stained glass, and four-poster bed, and the Judy Garland Room, containing a sumptuous bed that the
actress had flown over from America for her frequent stays here, is one of the themed deluxe rooms that recalls other notable figures.
