In London last weekend and spent three nights in the Chelsea Harbour Hotel (formerly the Wyndham Chelsea). All I can say is WOW, what a location. We stayed in a Chelsea Harbour Balcony Suite (it is an all suite hotel) and were glad we paid the extra for the balcony as the weather was fab and I spent many hours on the balcony drinking my morning coffee, or evening drink with a view of some lovely yachts. As a frequent 'sailor' on luxury cruises I felt like I was back in Monaco looking over the harbour there. The whole of the experience makes you forget you are in London, only minutes from the hustle and bustle of a big city. My husband and I walked along the embankment to Westminster - which was lovely, and another day walked back from Harrods and along the King's Road - I believe Jose Mourinho frequents this area, but I was not lucky enough to bump into him - although I know for a fact that when my husband and I checked out he came in with lots of other celebs/VIP's - what a shame, could have been a laugh :). There was an International football team staying there for a couple of nights, but they didn't bother us, and we didn't bother them (not bad on the eyes in their shorts mind you ;)
Anyway, what a true gem of a hotel. We have stayed in many five star hotels in London in the city and just fancied a change - well we are truly converted, and cannot wait to visit it again. The staff were lovely, could not have been more helpful, and the food and drink we had was excellent. The Chelsea Harbour Hotel is an exceptional property, in a fabulous location, and has a wonderful team - there if you need them, but not fussing over you when you don't need them - which is perfect.
The only disadvantage is getting taxi's into the city - it was around £35.00 one way, so a bit expensive if you have a few trips into the centre. However, Harrods is only two miles away, and there is a fabulous shopping centre only 8 minutes away from the hotel on the train (Imperial Wharf next to hotel) with some amazing shops (J Choo, Louis Vuitton, etc). Also a lovely small boutique in the hotel (ladies and gents garments) with some lovely items - bought a small item for my husband.
I can't wait to go back to this fabulous hotel.
Well done to all at the Chelsea Harbour Hotel - you certainly made our weekend special :)
