If you love to travel in style then your first port of call is finding a stylish hotel. Especially if you’re looking to jazz up your Instagram feed.
Whether it’s share-worthy moments in a picture-perfect hotel room or Instagram-worthy breakfasts in bed, finding an amazing staycation in London could be a challenge.
Look no further. From upright elegance at The Ritz to modern and trendy at The Hoxton, Elite Traveler have rounded up their favorite photo-worthy stayovers.
The London Edition
The Edition Hotel is a favorite among Londoners. Located in the heart of Fitzrovia, the hotel combines both traditional and modern elements throughout the hotel’s design. Its famous restaurant, Berners Tavern displays beautiful chandeliers and playful portraits giving every excuse to pull out your phone at the dinner table.
The ACE Hotel
This luxury boutique hotel in trendy Shoreditch is haven for art, food and fashion. The brand, created by late Alex Calderwood, takes pride in its cool, urbanized decor effortlessly nailing NYC style.
The Soho Hotel
Design director and owner, Kit Kemp, channels fresh English style perfectly. Floor to ceiling warehouse style windows and beautiful palettes of pinks and violets make this stayover worth your while.
The W Hotel is not one to pass up. Setting the scene for modern and sleek, this hotel has a lot more than its stylish rooms and lounge on offer. Try their incredible house cocktails or dance to the beat at one of their buzzing music performances.
Charlotte Street Hotel
This quintessential British hotel is just as beautiful on the inside as it is out. Have a spot of afternoon tea or snuggle up in the private arts cinema. The hotel’s interpretation of the Bloomsbury Group cleverly portrays the gorgeous delicate prints and timeless style of that time featuring original art work from the period…a true must-see.
The glamorous Mondrian Hotel is located at Sea Containers’ former HQ nestled between Waterloo and Blackfriars stations. Copper-clad walls and large open spaces make up the hotel’s seductive and striking features. So stunning, you won’t stop bragging about it.
Convent Garden Hotel
Another divine Firmdale Hotel. Located just minutes away from the capital’s Royal Opera House, the Convent Garden Hotel is magnificently decorated with charming wood-paneled walls and cozy fireplaces. Enjoy a light lunch or a cup of tea in Brasserie Max or the Drawing Room… snap worth guaranteed.
Located in one of the liveliest districts of London, The Hoxton is a hot spot for locals and travelers alike. Its urban city style and East London edge is cleverly detailed with metal floating lamps and luxurious leather armchairs. Also, just look at that breakfast.
Another Old Street favorite of ours. The Shoreditch Rooms located in the trendy Shoreditch House is amid London’s most art-centric neighborhood. And with a stylish rooftop pool, restaurant, spa, and bowling alley, all under one roof, there won’t be any reason to leave.
When in London, a visit to the Ritz Carlton Hotel is an absolute must. This 5-star hotel is one of the capital’s finest establishments with British colonial decor and an exquisite menu of the country’s best traditional afternoon teas.
The Savoy is one of London’s most iconic hotels. With a history spanning over 120 years and its excellent location on the Northbank of the River Thames, you won’t want to miss a stay at this swish venue.
With a history of hosting royalty, celebrities and world leaders, it’s no wonder why this is one of London’s most sought-after hotels. We promise, the art deco interiors combined with traditional refined style will have your phone on burst mode at every turn.
The Rookery Hotel enchants each visitor with its beautiful period decor and classic Georgian detailing. The warm open fires and freestanding baths offer the ultimate in luxury and style too.
