TK Hotel

TK hotel in London

$$$. St. James.
The word is out on Duke's—which has won awards for the accommodations as well as for the bar stuffed with leather chairs and stocked with fine gins and vintage cognacs. In London hotel terms, it's relatively inexpensive for the level of style and pampering you get. Most rooms—be they the superior doubles or the junior suites with sitting rooms—are smallish, but are kept elegantly simple to compensate, with built-in closets, granite marble baths, and antique writing desks. Suites come with Empress-sized beds on which to romp, large sitting rooms, and vistas over the spires and skyscrapers of London (you're hemmed in by royalty here: on one side lives the Queen Mother in Charles' House, and on another Diana's family resides at Spencer House). The penthouse has the sweetest views, incorporating Big Ben, Parliament, and Westminster. The new spa offers a marble steam room, small exercise room, and massage and beauty treatments. The same management owns the Franklin and Egerton House (reviewed below).
St James's Place (off St. James's St., 3 blocks down from Piccadilly). [tel] 800/381-4702 in the U.S., 020/7491-4840 in the U.K. Tube: Green Park. Rates: £225-£260 ($375-$433) double; £295 ($492) jr. suite; from £350 ($583) suite; from £550 ($917) penthouse. AE, DC, MC, V.
