It is very difficult to predict the weather in the United Kingdom - in the summer from May to late September is generally seen as the most pleasant time to visit. Rainfall is difficult to predict - but the UK does not receive as much as many are led to believe! In the winters, temperatures do fall, but the Christmas atmosphere in London is not to be missed.

From the moment you walk through the doors you are kindly greeted and thoroughly welcomed to this beautiful property. The grayscale color scheme through the hotel might sound bland, but quite the opposite is true. The colors perfectly blend and bring the beauty of the hotel to life. The long sweeping corridors create a grand entrance as you walk through to your room or back to the lobby and the grand staircase is quite a sight. This staircase is many employees favorite part of the hotel; bursting with seven types of marble, the grandness still feels as if it could belong right in your very own home.
