is known as one of the most affluent parts of the city. With high end restaurants
, boutiques and bars, it’s the playground of the well off. These are some of the most luxurious and decadent hotels in the area. Enjoy.
High Road House
is all about laid back, fresh Scandi simplicity. With white tongue and groove and hand painted wallpaper, the rooms are a picture of understated style. You’ll find hot water bottles, complimentary drinks and snacks in the drawers, as well as high end Cowshed Spa products to pamper yourself with. Little details like hand-woven Scottish throws on the bed and retro radios make the place feel that little bit special. The enormous rooms are all well sound proofed, so despite being on the busy Chiswick High Road, you’re sure to get a peaceful night’s sleep.
Gaze out of this super swanky hotel
to view the beautiful stucco facades of the houses on one side or look out upon the chimney tops on the other side and daydream about Mary Poppins. As well as charming London views, the Laslett has a prime location, within short walking distance of cinemas, markets, restaurants, boutiques and parks. The interior is light and airy with simplistic grey and white colour themes dotted here and there with work by local London artists. Attention to detail is king here and it makes the Laslett truly a special place to stay.
The Portobello Hotel
This charming hotel
is chock full of quirky character and individuality. Located on a quiet terrace backing on to Stanley Gardens of which you can enjoy a lovely view from the large windows, it’s the perfect place to avoid the hustle and bustle of hectic London. The owners have retained much of the original furniture of the historic building including several dramatic Victorian baths. They have tried to retain the historical aesthetic, adding sympathetic modern touches where required. The walls are adorned with historical paint colours but the curtains and carpets are from a more recent time. The rooms are all unique and of various sizes, but all beautifully appointed and in their own way an oasis of calm.
The Dorsett Shepherds Bush
This monument to hotel chic is at odds with most of the other accommodation available in Shepherds Bush, which is mostly occupied by budget and boutique hotels. A handy five-minute drive from the Westfield shopping centre, this historic building started life as the Pavilion cinema in 1923. A Grade Two listed art deco façade’s aesthetic mixes with the more oriental style given to the interiors by designer Wendy Chiu. The inside gleams with black gold and steel and screams of Chinese prosperity.
La Suite West
This wonderfully located hotel on a typical West London terrace is just five minutes walk from London’s beautiful and vast Hyde Park. The hotel occupies a white townhouse and the interior has a slick Japanese feel. There’s an extended white marble reception desk, a low fire in the lobby and the walls and corridor floors are decked in black marble, giving a dark but sophisticated minimalist feel. The sleek marble theme continues in the bathrooms and the larger rooms have black Japanese style shutters opening on to private terraces. Slick, simplistic, classy and cool.
