The Lanesborough Hotel Review

: THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS UNTIL JULY 2015. Opened in 1991, this hotel is noted for having all the latest high-tech gadgetry --- cleverly concealed within a sea of mahogany furnishings. Indeed, façade is everything here; the luxury hotel was created inside the gutted shell of the former St. George's Hospital, a beautiful, classic, white building that dominates the western side of Hyde Park Corner. Marketed as a stately country home in the heart of central London, the St. Regis is filled with large-scale antique furniture, acres of marble, yards of beautiful fabric and huge flower arrangements. It may feel like a manor from the 1820s, but the comforts of the 21st century are evident throughout. The arrival policy is singular: guests are escorted to their room and introduced to their private butler who will unpack, run baths and, most importantly, explain the state-of-the-art equipment. And all in a very traditional British manner. Sony VAIO laptops are standard in guest rooms, with high-speed Internet access and movies on demand. Apsleys restaurant features modern Italian cuisine and is also the home of an award-winning tea service. The wood-paneled Library Bar, complete with real books, is delightful for drinks and light meals. Details throughout are faultless, from personalized stationery to complimentary pressing by the 24-hour butlers.
