This chic hotel boasts a fab location in the heart of Knightsbridge.
While this top-of-the-line hotel is made more attractive by its location --- within ambling distance of Harrods and Harvey Nichols, and just by Hyde Park --- it's the luxurious décor of its rooms that makes it stand out among many similar hotels in this neighborhood. Bedrooms feature exquisite hand-finished desks and lounge chairs. Shades of taupe, sand and azul juxtapose with leather and chrome throughout. The beds are large and housekeeping impeccable. Executive-floor service with butlers is worth the extra cost and includes touches like valet unpacking, two-hour laundering and a special expedited check-in service. All rooms have wonderful views, though the higher floors are obviously the best. Restaurant One-O-One has a separate entrance on William Street --- a suitable setting for the excellent French (mainly fish) cooking of Pascal Proyart. There are also two comfortable bars, a coffee shop, a hair salon and a gift shop.
