What Hotel Should We Pick For Afternoon Tea in London?
Alright, everybody; we need your help and expertise in assisting us with making a hugely important decision. On Monday, we're going to do proper afternoon tea at a London Hotel; the problem, we don't know which one yet.
It's a matter of too much choice, really. London has so many five-star hotels who pride themselves upon their tea service, and with only one afternoon available, we feel like we're doing a disservice to them. So, for this one, we're looking for a combination of variety, uniqueness, and value. We understand that London is pricey, so we're not talking a cheap tea, but ideally not one as expensive as that of The Ritz, which rings in around £37 each (that's $60 for a cup of tea and a few petit fours!) and anyway required reservations several weeks in advance.
We'll just throw a few options out that we've been considering: The Lanesborough, The Dorcester, The Metropolitan, The Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, Brown's...
