London hotels are bespoke gems, ranging from the grand and historic to contemporary classics loaded with Brit-wit brilliance. For a taste of all things royal, The Goring will tempt with its proximity to Buckingham Palace. Plus, this is where Kate Middleton and her family stayed before the royal wedding. (They booked the top-floor Royal Apartment.)
Pictured above is the Haymarket Hotelís swimming pool and lounge. The swimming pool spans sixty feet with dramatic lighting overhead. The long pewter bar is the perfect place to sip a cocktail poolside and rest your weary travelerís feet.
