Egerton House Hotel

TK hotel in Brompton, London

Just off Brompton Road, near the chicest boutiques and the shopping at Harrods, the red brick townhouse Egerton House, opened in 1990, offers Victorian comfort with a modern touch. Most of the rooms are fairly small, but are tastefully furnished in light tones with floral print fabrics, antique dressers, large windows, and half-testers over most beds in the "deluxe" and "luxury" categories (the rooms to go for). The largest "luxury" room with its four-poster bed is set aside as the honeymoon suite. Most accommodations overlook the grassy quiet and Victorian redbrick of Egerton Gardens. There's 24-hour room service, and a drawing room off the entrance with an honesty bar. The Egerton just bought the building next door, with garden views, and should begin expanding into it soon.

For a few dozen more pounds, you might opt to stay in one of the elegantly posh suites at the Egerton's sister hotel, The Franklin ([tel] 020/7584-5533, fax 020/7584-5449), just a few blocks away at 28 Egerton Gardens, with high ceilings and garden-view rooms.

17 Egerton Terrace (off Brompton Rd., two blocks up from its fork with Cromwell Rd. and the V&A Museum). [tel] 800/473-9492 in the U.S.; 020/7589-2412 in the U.K. Fax: 415/332-4009 in the U.S.; 020/7584-6540 in the U.K. Tube: Knightsbridge or South Kensington. Rates: £180 ($300) standard double, £195 ($325) large double, £210 ($350) deluxe double, £250 ($417) luxury double. AE, DC, MC, V.
