1. The Lalit London
Where Victorian grandeur meets Indian opulence. The grade 2 listed building has been painstakingly restored with many original features in tact. My personal favourite is the ornate fretwork in the Teachers Room Bar combined with the stunning pearl mosaic ceiling by Siminetti
2. Blakes Hotel
Known as the "Couture" hotel of London, be sure to look out for film stars, musicians and other A list celebrities. Lovingly converted from Victorian terraced houses, I love the variation of room designs in Blakes Hotel. My favourite of course are the Signature suites, oozing in romance and luxury, you will find a plethora of beautiful fabrics and ornate details. You will not want to leave!
Feel like royalty as you stay at Hotel 41 overlooking Buckingham palace, this is a true hidden gem in London. Decor is simple, as the monochrome scheme is woven throughout the hotel from the hallway floors to the bedroom details.
4. The Wellesley
True Art Deco glamour with luxury touches and striking artwork, the Wellesley is a masterpiece in hospitality design. For me there is not much that beats a sexy Jazz club, so a drink at the Wellesley Jazz Lounge is the ideal romantic treat!
Sounds like something from a James Bond film does it not? Citizen M is a super funky hotel designed with art lovers in mind, its location only minutes away from the Tate Modern. I fell in love with all the colour pops and quirky design elements in the lighting and seating.
6. Threadneedles Autograph
Part of the Marriott group, the Threadneedles Hotel transformed this former Victorian bank into an elegant boutique style hotel. Treat your loved ones to a delectable afternoon tea is the iconic dome restaurant. Look out for the romantic room package where little touches include rose petals and bubble baths, mmmmmm!
7. The Mayfair Hotel
Simple decadent and opulent with bold use of colour, the Mayfair Hotel is elegance at its core.
8. San Domenico House
I love great stories, and not many are able to compete with the story behind San Domenico House. The brand is about creating memories in a home away from home, so call themselves a "house" rather than a hotel. They take you on a sensory journey as each room is unique but each filled with history, opulence and royal portraiture.
9. Sanderson Hotel
Only a few steps away from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street, the Sanderson is a dream like world of whimsy. Expect stunning views, lots of glass and clever use of contemporary modern lighting
10. The Beaumont
Grand Art Deco style and glamour yet warm and inviting, don't miss having a cheeky bourbon at Jimmys bar before an award winning meal at Colony Grill.
11. The Royal Horseguards
Quintessential British opulence, the royal horseguards is everything you would expect from British hospitality. expect royal portraits, marble staircases and spectacular views of London.
12. The Levin
An oasis of luxury oozing elegance and charm in the heart of Knightsbridge. Just what the doctor ordered after your shopping trip to Harrods! The beautiful blues in the bedrooms and soothing while the vibrant colours in the restaurant are beautifully uplifting.
13. Ham Yard Hotel
Vibrant, tropical colours are used throughout the hotel to create a wonderful uplifting atmosphere.
The stunning Drawing Room with those sumptuous teal sofas are enough to make me weak at the knees!
What would you add to the list? What are your plans this Valentines? Whatever you do, and whoever you spend it with, I wish you a day full of love and colour xxx
