As one of the oldest cities in Europe, London is an entanglement of history, tradition, luxury and culture. With some of the best high-end shops in the world and Bishop’s Avenue, the British Royal Family members aren’t the only regal personages in town. Boasting more than enough opulence to go around, one of the best things about London is that it’s only a short trip away in your private charter jet from Europe’s other luxury cities. 

Where to Sleep

Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park Hotel:  If you love shopping and great views, the Mandarin Oriental on Knightsbrige offers the best of both worlds at one of the most prestigious addresses in the city. When staying at the Mandarin Oriental, consider booking the 2,045-square-foot Imperial Suite, one of the largest luxury retreats in London. In addition to butler service, you’ll enjoy a pillow menu, Ormonde Jayne bathroom amenities and a Bang & Olufsen entertainment system. (http://www.mandarinoriental.com/london/)

Dorchester Hotel: Situated on Mayfair’s Park Lane, the Dorchester Hotel is one of the most highly reputable hotels in the city for its traditional values, sumptuousness and charm. During your stay on your private charter jet, get a haircut at the Barber shop or from one of the Charles Worthington hairdressers, dress up your room with the help of the in-house florist or have the hotel’s Medical service cure your ailments. Stay in one of the Dorchester’s “roof suites,” which channel Hollywood’s retro glam era, come with a team of dedicated butlers and provide outside terraces that provide exclusive views of the city.

41: When you want to get away from the bustle of downtown, book a room at 41 on Buckingham Palace Road. The boutique accommodations give the hotel a London club feel. The bespoke services provide you with staff members who always remember your favorite drinks, newspapers and guest room. With its trademark black and white décor, the Conservatory Master Suite is a secluded penthouse with an open ceiling, views overlooking the Royal Mews, dining area, double Jacuzzi bath, business services, fireplace and Penhaligon amenities.
