We love a good hotel bathtub, especially when it has a view. During a recent visit to the London’s InterContinental Park Lane, we spotted a worthy entry for our Bathroom Tuesdays in the hotel’s lofty London Suite.

With its soaring two-story windows, this suite – and its bathroom – takes full advantage of the hotel’s vantage point on Hamilton Place, overlooking Hyde Park Corner and the gardens behind Buckingham Palace. Time it right, and you can watch the mounted Horse Guards pass underneath Wellington Arch right from the tub. More of a shower person? Not to worry, you’re covered too.

A spacious rain shower gives you the same view, as does the bed. One flight of stairs down, you’ll find an open plan living room and dining area, with an additional half bath.

The London Suite is due to undergo a soft refurbishment, which comes on the heels of the complete overhaul of the InterContinental’s Royal Suite, a multi-room extravaganza we had a chance to tour together with its designer. We’ll have more for you on what we saw inside – including the biggest hotel bed we’ve ever come across – soon.

The London Suite runs at about £4,000 ($6,000) a night. The same views can be had from the hotel's Club InterContinental lounge, where access is complimentary with any suite and select room types, but can be purchased for £95 ($145) with any room category.
