You may not find a bed of roses at the newly opened Rosewood London (252 High Holborn, London, (+44) 207-781-8888, http://www.rosewoodhotels.com/en/london) but you can expect a fantastic snooze in an above-average bed (we would hope), private terraces, a view of London, personal butlers and lavish afternoon teas in this renovated 1914 Edwardian Belle Époque building. More of a night owl? Check out the hotel’s old-school bar, which has obligatory wooden nooks, a herringbone floor, warm leather and a roaring fire worthy of Churchill’s affection. Pretend you’re royalty for a day with these kinda-sorta affordable room rates.
From US$590. 252 High Holborn, London, (+44) 207-781-8888, www.rosewoodhotels.com/en/london
