The Leonard Hotel

TK hotel in Marylebone, London

The Leonard links four 18th century townhouses for a British atmosphere with an Imperial touch—the furnishings in public areas are often of Indian origin or inspiration and the air is lightly scented with exotic spices, a decor carried over into many guest rooms, especially the excellent Grand Suites. These have high stuccoed ceilings towering above the enormous rooms with tall windows opening onto balconies (romantics: no. 15 even has a four-poster bed). Two-bedroom suites are like renting your own posh little London pad, with a marble fireplace in the large sitting/dining rooms, a king and a queen bedroom, all fitted with oil paintings and old fashioned settees mixed with antique or post-modern furnishings. Even the simple doubles are elegant (though some can verge on cramped), and all rooms and suites come with a CD stereo and TV with VCR. The best standard double is largish no. 27, with its canopied four-poster bed. Many rooms in each category come with a butler's pantry or small (but full) kitchen. There's also a tiny exercise room, and 24-hour concierge ana room service.
