This monument to Art Deco in what was formerly a Playboy Club makes a striking statement in Mayfair thanks to the chrome fins that wrap around the exterior. Every room has a dedicated concierge and unobstructed views of Hyde Park. Reserve a table at Wolfgang Puck’s debut restaurant in Europe, Cut, for – what else? – one of the widest ranges of beef available in London. The hotel is part of the Dorchester Collection, so guests have access to all services at the Dorchester, next door, like the spa (1930s glamour meets cutting-edge treatments).
