For a stay you’ll never forget, these iconic and historic five star group hotels are the best the English capital has to offer.

  1. The Savoy Hotel

    When it comes to group hotels at london to remember, there’s no beating The Savoy. Opened in 1889, the Grade II listed, 268-room Savoy Hotel is a London icon. It endures as a favoured stopover of celebrities: throwback stars who have stayed here include Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe and Charlie Chaplin. Meanwhile Richard Harris, who played Dumbledore in the first two Harry Potter movies, reportedly lived here until he passed away in 2002.

    The showbiz glitter extends to famed The Savoy Grill (a restaurant by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey) and the next door Savoy Theatre. This equally iconic establishment has been a mainstay of the West End since 1881. In recent years, it’s played host to such blockbuster shows as Dreamgirls, Funny Girl and Legally Blonde.

  2. The Ritz London

    While the Savoy is tucked away discreetly down a Strand side road, there’s no missing The Ritz London, which sits proudly on Piccadilly, near the edge of Green Park.

    With 111 rooms and 23 suites, the Ritz lays claim to a staff to guest room ratio of over 2:1. It also holds the distinction of being the only hotel to hold a British Royal Warrant, supplying HRH The Prince of Wales with banqueting and catering services.

    Another Grade II listed property, The Ritz was opened by famed Swiss hotelier Ceser Ritz in 1906. It has also played host to stars like Chaplin, plus former Prime Minister Winston Churchill and of course Julia Roberts’ lonely movie star Anna Scott in the classic British romantic comedy Notting Hill.

  3. The Egerton

    Most of the group hotels on this list are behemoths, and mat be a bit stiff and formal for some travelers. Conversely, The Egerton is comprised of only 23 bedrooms, four studio suites and one master suite. As such, it has a welcoming, boutiquey vibe, with the warm, friendly service adding to the home-away-from-home feel.

    But that doesn’t mean it scrimps on luxury. The rooms are all plush textures and charming antique furniture, while the Martini masterclass in the tiny bar is pretty glamorous exercise. Also afternoon tea in the plush drawing room is a must.

    Opt for the V&A Suite of you can: just one of the added extra is a guest tickets to all the temporary exhibitions at the nearby V&A Museum.

  4. Claridge’s

    Having opened 1856, Claridge’s is one of the most historic group hotels in this list, and has been visited by heads of state and European royalty such as Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. During the Second World War, it was used as a refuge by the Kings of Greece, Norway and Yugoslavia. Celebrity visitors include Audrey Hepburn, Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant.

    From the opulent ballroom to the plush suites, the Art Deco decor is timelessly chic; the Oswald Milne-designed lobby, for example, dates back to 1929. A recent addition is Michelin-starred chef Simon Rogan’s Fera restaurant, serving quintessentially British cuisine.
