The modern lobby of this Waldorf Astoria – which presides over 200 acres of ducal West London parkland – pays tribute to the famous butterfly house belonging to the Duke of Northumberland. A floor-to-ceiling glass enclosure is filled with 1,000 fluttering guests, including exotic species like the Red Postman and Passion Flower. Subtle nods to the winged insect appear throughout the hotel (the spa takes its name from the rare Kallima butterfly).
