Why Stay At St. Ermin's Hotel
Storied London hotel restored to its original splendor, and occupying a privileged locale within minutes to Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey.
Tucked away in a sheltered corner of London's desirable Westminster neighborhood, the six-storey red brick mansion with wrought iron gates and a welcoming tree-lined courtyard wows visitors with an impressive late Victorian-era lobby. A winding double staircase leads to an undulating mezzanine-level balcony while the walls are embellished with meticulous plasterwork. The 331 air-conditioned rooms are spacious by London standards and brightly appointed with intricate purple-hued patterns offset by elegant dark wooden furniture. All rooms have marble bathrooms. Craving a work out before you set out? The on-site 24-hour gym is located on the second floor. For a quiet moment after a full day, retreat to the book-lined library with a glass of Merlot, or indulge in traditional British Afternoon Tea (plus scrumptious scones) at the hotel's Tea Lounge.
The hotel keeps 300,000 Buckfast bees in three custom-built hives on the rooftop. Access to the area's plentitude of parks results in aromatic honey used by the Caxton Grill's chef in a number of signature dishes.
Want to play spy? Sit at the Caxton Bar, order a dry Martini and pretend to be 1950s infamous double agent Guy Burgess who handed over secret papers to his Russian counterpart here.
Arrive at London Heathrow International Airport (LHR) which is approximately 16 miles from the hotel. Anticipate between 30 and 45 minutes of travel time depending on traffic.2 Caxton Street, Westminster, London, United Kingdom
