One Aldwych
As stylish now as it was when it opened a decade ago, One Aldwych offers contemporary cool paired with impeccable service in a stellar location near Covent Garden.
The Lobby Bar
The One Aldwych lobby is terrific, too, for a cocktail with dynamic people-watching.
The Savoy
The London hotel scene is white-hot, thanks largely to the recent unveiling of The Savoy, revamped to the tune of $350 million.
Number Sixteen Hotel
The latest from London über-hoteliers Tim and Kit Kemp and their Firmdale Hotels group, Number Sixteen offers a residential-styled hostelry in the heart of South Kensington. The rooms are color-rich and stunning.
Private Garden
We're mad for Number Sixteen's private garden and guest drawing room.
The Boundary
The newest venture from design guru Terence Conran, this East End hostelry, a member of Design Hotels, houses 17 guest rooms in a converted Victorian warehouse, each room inspired by a famed designer.
Albion Café and Food Shop
Kick back in the Albion café and food shop at The Boundary before exploring the hopping Shoreditch nabe, especially the markets at Columbia Road (Sunday morning flowers) and Spitalfields.
Portobello Road Market
Saturday morning, head to the Portobello Road Market in Notting Hill for furniture, silver, vintage sporting goods, jewelry and everything in between.
Locanda Locatelli Restaurant
Don't miss high-style Italian at Locanda Locatelli.
Koffmann's
Tucked between the discreet-chic Berkeley hotel, this recently opened French bistro, the brainchild of French superstar chef Pierre Koffmann, has a living room vibe and serves casual-chic fare such as Scottish scallops with squid ink.
Fifteen
Don't miss Jamie Oliver's Mediterranean-themed Fifteen.
La Soirée
After dark, London delivers. Catch cabaret at La Soirée at the South Bank Big Top.
