For the second year in a row, London’s Lanesborough Hotel has been nominated as the Best City Hotel in London by Travel+Leisure Magazine. Baroque Travel has all the details
Multi-award winning hotel The Lanesborough has done it again, being named the Best City Hotel in London by prestigious magazine, Travel+Leisure. Other top awards received this year include being the highest placed London hotel in the Top 100 Hotels in the World and another accolade as the third Best City Hotel in Europe.
The hotel, which underwent a major revamp in 2015 overseen by renowned designer Alberto Pinto and opened an equally award-winning Club & Spa the following year, has been receiving lots of attention ever since. Its most recent additions, the state-of-the-art spa and fitness club plus the hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurant, Céleste, have received the most publicity. So it should come as no surprise that the hotel has become known as the place to go in the city.
Travel+Leisure Magazine dedicates itself to finding the finest establishments in the world and makes an annual list of what it considers the best hotels in each country. This most recent award, received for the second time in 2 years, is recognition yet again of the Lanesborough’s excellence.
The hotel offers a selection of 93 sumptuous guest rooms and suites all decorated in Regency style and offering every modern conveniences as well as an elegant new design. Here, guests enjoy fine dining at the restaurant Céleste created by chef Eric Frechon who boasts three Michelin-stars. But that’s not all. There’s the legendary cigar lounge, The Garden Room, considered by many to be the most glamorous in London, and the exclusive Library Bar.
Guests are pampered with a 24-hour butler service and another big plus is the hotel’s proximity to London’s best shopping at Harrods, Harvey Nichols as well as the luxuries on offer in exclusive Sloane Street and Knightsbridge. Let’s not forget the new Fitness Studio, exclusively available to guests, that is open 24/7 and offers an extensive range of equipment as well as a steam room.
