While many of us look for the cheapest possible London hotel, there are a privileged few around for whom cost is no object. Without further ado, here are the four most expensive suites in London:
1. The Brook Penthouse at Claridge’s.
Claridge’s is a hotel fit for royalty and the Brook Penthouse is the jewel in its crown. It is of course designed in the hotel’s typical Art Deco style and has its own roof terrace and a lot more besides: there is a large living area, two bedrooms with two dressing rooms (including those ever so essential walk-in wardrobes!). Naturally, it has its own private dining room along with plenty of room for entertaining guests as well as your own private butler. You’ll obviously want to have a big party to show off to your friends if you end up staying there!
2. Royal Suite at the Lanesborough.
The regal Lanesborough has what is rumoured to be London’s most expensive suite with views over Buckingham Palace’s grounds no less! You pay thousands per night but you do get three bedrooms, a huge lounge, panoramic windows and a study – plus once again, your own private butler. Celebrities love it for its discretion as it’s hidden away deep within the hotel!
3. The Infinity Suite at the Langham Hotel.
This suite was renovated at an estimated cost of around £700,000 some years ago and has high ceilings, two bedrooms, lots of technology and gorgeous, spacious dressing areas. There’s also an infinity bath which will take your breath away just looking at it and a fair bit of entertaining space.
4. The Harlequin Suite at the Dorchester.
The Harlequin Suite was renovated in 2007 and has a master bedroom and dressing room, along with a living room, dining area and its own bar. There’s also a big terrace with tremendous views over gorgeous Hyde Park.
The precise pricing for the above suites is elusive but the researchers at London Hotels Insight reckon they will cost you between £4000 and £7000 per night. If you want to stay in them you’d be well-advised to start saving your pennies!
