2010 Review

Egerton House Hotel exterior courtesy the hotel The Egerton House Hotel is a luxury townhouse hotel built in 1843. Itís on a quiet tree lined street in Knightsbridge, making it a great base for shopping at all the local upmarket stores, Harvey Nichols, and Harrods. Adding to the luxury feel are original artworks by Picasso, Matisse, and Toulouse-Lautrec.

On arrival you are greeted with fresh fruit and water in your room and a glass of champagne or tea should you desire it. Thereís 24 hour room service and twice daily maid service to pamper you.

Egerton House Hotel drawing room courtesy the hotel Guest rooms are in the traditional style and all are individually designed, some with antique Italian furnishings. Some rooms have desks and sofas. The suites have a separate lounge area. All rooms are air conditioned.

Every room has a minibar, an iPod docking station, complimentary Wi-Fi, cable TV, a radio alarm clock, and a safe. The beds have hand-stitched mattresses, down pillows and duvets and Egyptian cotton sheets. (They are among the most comfortable we have found in any hotel.) Marble bathrooms, complete with luxury toiletries, bathrobes and slippers add to the pampering feel.

Egerton House classic double room courtesy the hotel Traditional English afternoon tea is served in the intimate dining room. Breakfast is cooked to order and includes a buffet with fresh seasonal fruit. The bar serves martinis as its specialty. Sandwiches, salads and soups may be ordered throughout the day and evening.

The hotel has a partnership with the nearby LA Fitness Platinum spa and health club where a day pass includes free use of swimming pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, steam room, exercise studio, cardio theatre, and fitness room. The hotel will book massage and reflexology therapies to have in your room.

If your budget can swing to it, pamper yourself in the Victoria and Albert suite on the ground floor. It has two full baths, a separate living room and a small outdoor terrace. Itís furnished with everything you could need for your London stay including a drinks cart, coffee machine, and other special amenities. Itís a special treat for a wedding anniversary, Valentineís Day, or birthday.

Service in the Red Carnation Hotel chain is impeccable, friendly, and the best weíve found in London.
