The Connaugt Hotel

The Connaught is a TK hotel in Mayfair, London

This Old World, clubby hotel with a residential ambiance is consistently lauded for its service, food, and ambiance—Condé Nast once named it the 4th best hotel in Europe.

Since 1896, the devoted staff has strived to keep everything low key and give it that "home away from home" feeling—assuming your home is a 19th century British mansion crawling with servants.

From elaborately stuccoed ceilings, chinoisie bar cupboards, and rich mahoganies to the Florentine marble in the baths, working fireplaces in the seven corner suites, and traditional British styling throughout that hides fax machines, minibars, and ISDN modem hook-ups, this place just screams understated luxury.

There's 24-hour butler, maid, and valet service on each floor, a popular oak-paneled American Bar, and an elegant, candle-lit French/British Restaurant (jacket and tie required) that has held onto a Michelin star for 25 years (the same menu is served in the more intimately romantic Grill Room).

There's also a brand-new small but well-equipped fitness room on the top floor.
