Dukes London, St. James’s Mayfair
Following a multimillion-pound refurbishment, Dukes London has reopened as a sophisticated home-from-home in the heart of the city. Famed for its Dukes Bar, where Ian Fleming was inspired to write his James Bond novels, the hotel’s Victorian exterior evokes a time when artists and writers rubbed shoulders with royalty in fashionable St. James's. For those looking to experience the height of luxury, the Duke of Clarence Penthouse Suite offers a spacious sitting room with dining space for four guests, a grand marble bathroom, and a beautiful double bedroom. Rooms from £348.
