Another wonderful small and very luxurious hotel company is the Maybourne Hotel Group.
I just had lunch with Andrew Jeffries, their Sales Manager based in the USA. And here’s a quick update on their 3 very special London hotels.
Claridge’s is one of London’s most storied hotels, practically a second home to Buckingham Palace’s residents when they ran out of rooms. They even let me stay there about three years ago but alas I did not spy any Royals. Photo. The rooms are either a very old fashioned British style or a fabulously chic deco one. Suites designed by royal favorite Linley. In Mayfair walking distance from Hyde park or the designer shops on Bond Street.
The Connaught was recently and completely remodeled and the rooms and baths are quite modern, although many rooms retain a traditional feel. The hotel is quiet, done in dark wood, and the lobby small so you can sneak away to your room without the paparazzi bothering you .
Maybourne’s third hotel is The Berkeley, located in Kensington near Harrod’s and The Royal Albert Hall. The more casual and family friendly of the group, the suites and rooms were stunningly designed by Robert Angell, . Check out the large rooftop pool and London’s very happening Blue Bar, designed by David Collins. It’s where I had my first B&B.
Of course Josh Friedman Luxury Travel offers a complimentary breakfast, a food & beverage or spa credit of L.60 and an upgrade if available. And, of course and most importantly, a VIP intro from Yours Truly.
