The world of luxury accommodation is rich and varied. At one end of the spectrum are the vast mega-hotels which tower over a city like Dubai, offering the very latest in 21st century hospitality and stunning architectural modernism, whilst at the other there are small, intimate boutique hotels, in which the emphasis is on the warmth of the welcome and the individuality of the establishment, something which will run through everything from the décor to the catering and even the welcome from the staff. Something which many luxury hotels share, however, is the fact that they tend to be located in highly desirable destinations. In some cases this might mean being miles away from anywhere, in a secluded spot which will allow guests to revel in the tranquillity of nature, whilst other spots have been chosen for their proximity to beaches or ski slopes. In a large number of cases, however, the best and most appealing luxury hotels are those which sit in the heart of the world’s great cities.
Often, a break in a luxury hotel will be something which people arrange for just a long weekend or a few days in the middle of the week. This is because people lead busy lives and can only afford to spend so much of their hard earned money, but one of the upshots is that travelling time needs to be kept to a minimum, and a location in a modern city, with access to many public transport links, will cut the time spent getting to your hotel drastically. Having got there as quickly as possible, guests will then have time free to soak up the luxury of their surroundings and set about exploring the city they are staying in. One such city which is ideal in this respect is London, and the good news is that there are many London luxury hotels to choose from.
The website www.luxoryhotelscollecton.com offers a selection of London hotels which offer both luxury accommodation and a chance to explore the many different facets which this wonderful city has to offer. Every 5 star hotel offers luxury, comfort and a host of special extras, so the choice will often boil down to selecting a location which is best placed to let you enjoy the aspect of London life which you find most appealing.
For many people, the lure of London lies in the culture and art on offer. A hotel in the centre of London will place these people within easy travelling, or even walking, distance of such cultural icons as the National Gallery, the National Portrait Gallery and Tate Modern, as well as a host of smaller independent galleries which specialise in showing the work of rising new artists. Others come to London wishing to take advantage of the many wonderful shopping opportunities presented. These range from the flagship high street names along Oxford Street to one off iconic department stores such as Selfridges or Harrods’ and the smaller boutique fashion houses around Bond Street. It should never be forgotten, of course, that London is a huge playground for kids, and a family with a hotel in Kensington will have easy access to Hyde Park, the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum.
