Hotel of the week: The Kensington Hotel, London
The 150-room hotel comprises four Victorian townhouses that are lavishly adorned with antiques.
The Kensington Hotel has all the “atmosphere and aesthetics of an exclusive London club,” said Benji Lanyado in The New York Times. Situated in the “well-heeled” neighborhood of South Kensington, just a “brief stroll” from Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace, this is the “kind of place where a visiting diplomat might be found sipping brandy in between very important meetings.” The 150-room hotel comprises four Victorian townhouses that are lavishly adorned with antiques. “Full concierge service is offered from a beautiful antique wooden desk in the lobby.”Contact: Doylecollection.com
