I actually unknowingly booked a room at The Royal Horseguards through a 3rd party website. Needless to say I was more than pleasantly surprised. The Horseguards is among the top hotels I have ever stayed at in terms of luxury, hospitality and overall satisfaction. They didn’t earn a 5 star rating by accident.
The location and history of the building alone make this the perfect hotel to soak in both the historical and modern vibe of London’s West End. The décor and design of the hotel will take you back in time with its classic English look. The hotel is able to provide all the modern conveniences of the 21st century seamlessly while maintaining the mystique of London’s glorious tradition.
The service was impeccable. Classic English butler service. The restaurant, was not a disappointment, and although pricey can be considered a value due to its quality. Most of all, the walls in the rooms were solid. Once the door shut, outside noise almost completely shut off as well; which allows great sleep. The wall mounted surround sound speakers throughout the room and bathroom, and the flat screen TV mounted in the shower were just icing on the cake. Having the American football telecast of my beloved Oakland Raiders playing on TV ensured that I was simply meant to stay in this hotel. Oh and did I mention the view?
If you have a little cash to spend and feel like staying in one of the greatest hotels in the world that fully embodies the historical elegance, and modern posh of London, go here.
