This luxury chain hotel is equipped with mod-cons and loads of gadgets.
The Berkshire is a delightful boutique hotel with elegant, upscale trimmings, such as furniture by Philippe Hurel, fresh white orchids and handmade bronze planters --- and that's just in the public spaces. The designer rooms and suites tip the scales of indulgence with handmade wool carpets, Sicilian marble bathrooms, original artwork, floating ceilings and fabrics in rich chocolates and beiges. Separate seating areas are a nice extra, and rooms also feature Bang & Olufsen televisions, Bose DVD players and complimentary wireless Internet access. Deluxe rooms provide extra work space, additional lighting and ergonomically designed chairs. Scoff & Banter Tea Rooms serves contemporary British cuisine, while the Berkshire Lounge provides a more casual setting for food and drink. Located on Oxford Street and opposite Bond Street, the Berkshire is a shopper’s dream, with immediate access to high-street stores such as Selfridges, Tiffany, Armani, Fenwick's and Topshop.
