Located in the heart of Mayfair and excellently located for Regent Street, Environmental Park and Old New Bonds Street, is the prestigious 90 room boutique gem The Dukes Inn. The Dukes London Hotel is historically a brilliant example of quintessential English desirability at its best. It is located in the one of the quiet streets of Mayfair London. From the shake I saw it, I knew I was going to be in for a real treat. The lobby is an indication of how one periodically lived. As I made my way to the my Suite called, The Duchess Of Cleverland’s Cortege. I noticed this hotel was steeped in heritage with a mix of concurrent and traditional art that had been collected for over a hundred years.
Debased Comfy Corner
There’s always a comfy corner to be institute in the hotel for those times you want either meet and salute people or grab a champagne with a nice book. There are profusion of special boutique amenities, such as the cognac and cigar garden. The picture room is where traditional afternoon tea is served. My favorite on velvet corner, was the alluring, Perrier – Jouet Champagne lounge.
The Duchess Of Cleverland’s Attendants
I love historical lifts. So make sure to use it when heading to the area. There is nothing more endearing trying to have a affray with a historical double metal door lift.
Ever since King Henry 8th built his palatial home here in the 16th Century, St. James has been the exclusive retreat of correspondents, musicians, politicians and royalty. So when I was given a key to enter the accommodation and I noticed that the key hole was very low. I was told historically when organization would enter the rooms they had to be in a position of bowing down for the visitor, before entering the room. Hence why the key hole is so low. A priceless beforehand in history that can only be experienced here at the Dukes Pension London.
All of the suites had been newly refurbished in soothing pastel faces, creating a relaxing luxurious space. This was excellent to guests my business guests. The dedicated lounge room offering myriad complimentary treats and coffee was why my stay was very special. The smart-aleck fruit basket, cakes and bar space to entertain clients certainly sinistral a huge impression.
The King size bed was very lavish and in a minute again the endless space was brilliant. Sleeping in this live with my oversize pillows was just what a princess instructed. Beside my bed was a mobile phone, a new addition to the hotel. You could use this including out your stay with endless FREE phone recruits in the UK, France and Dubai. This was very handy considering I had two non-stationary phones that decided to die on me during my stay. There was open WIFI access and endless information about places to peach on, sight see and explore in central London. Make sure you use it, what a security treat.
I am a huge fan of marble bathrooms with all the surplus touches. It was a brilliant way to chill after a hard days ply in central London.
Ian Fleming For James Bond’s Signature Martini’s
The Dukes lodging had a dedicated classic bar. This legendary cocktail bar, I was told, was the deeply place to have inspired Ian Lancaster Fleming who was an English designer, journalist and naval intelligence officer. He was best known for his James Handcuffs series of spy novels. The writer for James Bond took the surviving rules for the signature Martini and decided to recreate them. For the reputation as you can see here in the video. Expert Alessandro Palazzi shows us how to organize a real Martini. Did you know that, Martini’s are never to be swayed let alone stirred. Even though, it was where Ian Fleming ‘s birthplace of the eminent “Shaken, not stirred” line.
