We arrived in high style, chauffeured in the hotel’s custom Rolls-Royce, to a property with stunning views over Hyde Park and just 36 luxurious rooms. The hotel itself is an Art Deco masterpiece. Lovingly restored, it features the largest walk-in humidor in Europe. If cigars are your thing, then check into the hotel’s penthouse – with two gorgeous floors and its own humidor, it is one of the most desirable digs in London.
