Positioned between the high-class Mayfair borough and the vibrant Soho neighborhood, Hotel Café Royal is in the thick of it, yet is surprisingly relaxed inside. The landmarked building dates back to 1865 and is full of history: Oscar Wilde, Brigitte Bardot, David Bowie, Winston Churchill and Elizabeth Taylor are all past patrons. The Royal Wing is an extension of the grand Royal Suite and can be configured to include up to 13 bedrooms, all in a private wing. The Royal Suite itself has two bedrooms, two living rooms, a kitchen and three bathrooms in Carrara marble. Check out the Portland Stone, used to mirror the Regent Street architecture (you’ll have views of the famous street from the expansive windows). Beautiful golden walls add a bit of glitz to your stay. Don’t leave without having afternoon tea in the exquisitely gilded Oscar Wilde Lounge.
