Hotel Xenia London, Autograph Collection
A classic Victorian-style hotel that lives up to its name, which means hospitality in Greek.
Tom Kirk chandeliers descend from the Georgian-style ceiling in the lobby of this central London hotel. The atmosphere is quiet and elegant, and perks include complimentary Wi-Fi. Depending on their room selection, some guests can take advantage of free drinks and canapés in the Living Wall bar during the evening. Guest rooms are tastefully appointed in creams, warm whites and plush fabrics. In-room amenities include Wi-Fi, N'espresso coffee machines, bathrobes and slippers, Samsung tablets, wireless Bluetooth-compatible speakers, 40-inch flat-screen TVs and even umbrellas for the London weather. The on-site restaurant, Evoluzione, serves Italian cuisine in the Italian Cucina Evolution tradition, which was founded by nutritionist Chiara Manzi. Cucina Evolution revolves around the principle of preserving the inherent nutrients in each ingredient and maximizing flavor through inventive food combinations. Guests looking for a quick bite or a relaxing drink can head for the Champagne Bar --- an airy coffee house by day, it transforms into a Bohemian-style lounge come evening.
