Best Hotel Scene: London is Looking Very Loverly
It's what you've been waiting all year for--The 2010 HotelChatter Awards! We'll be bringing you the best and worst of the year all day today and part of tomorrow. Agree or disagree with our picks? Air your thoughts in comments below.
You can blame it on an obsession with WAGs and the Daily Mail but there's no doubt we've had a huge crush on London this year.
From spending a night inside a "broom cupboard" at the Dean Street Townhouse to trying out the new Tune Hotel Westminster to doing tea with Katy Perry and checking out the DVF rooms at Claridge's, learning about the Living Wall at the Athenaeum, attending the reopening of The Savoy and waiting on the opening of the W London, we've gotten closer to London than ever before. Oh, and how can we forget hotels' excitement for the royal engagement of Wills and Kate?
Fortunately for us anglophiles, all this hotel hotness won't end in 2011.
The city is nearly bursting at the seams with plans for new hotels, largely in anticipation of the 2012 Summer Olympics.
There were so many hotel announcements that we compiled a list of 15 Upcoming London Hotels You Should Know About in early November, only to learn that there are even more hotels than that will open in 2011 and 2012. Thus, we've created a new tag to keep a careful eye on these new projects--London Hotel Openings.
2011 and beyond is looking very loverly in London indeed. Now, we can't wait to get inside these hotels!
