Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel Review: Overlooking leafy Cadogan Square, this hotel is a favorite with Asian and Arab heads of state, with one of the most expensive suites in London --- the eighteenth-floor Presidential Suite, which is spectacular by any standard. From its bullet-proofed, glassed-in, conservatory-style drawing/dining room, you look down over Chelsea's green squares; elsewhere the suite is opulent with a four-poster bed, panic buttons, its own sauna and Jacuzzi with a television built into the wall. Plus, there's a personal butler with his own pantry area. But you don't have to go quite so high for great views and good-sized rooms. Try any of the well-appointed suites or room 426 on the fourth floor, with its own balcony. All rooms feature Bose sound systems, luxurious bathroom products and plenty of space. On the ninth floor, the Peak Health Club & Spa offers state-of-the-art equipment, workout classes and an attractive lounge area for light meals. There's also an impressive golf simulator, sauna and steam room, and an urban, stainless steel swimming pool. As for restaurants, The Rib Room is second to none for Aberdeen Angus beef and seafood, while afternoon tea and drinks accompanied by a harpist offer a pleasant way to spend a few hours in the pretty Chinoiserie Lounge off the lobby.
