Found in conjoined classic red brick townhouses dating back to 1843 in the Knightsbridge area of London, Egerton House Hotel offers 28 unique guest rooms each decorated in their own distinct style of British grandeur. Antique furnishings, gold fixtures and heavy fabrics are de rigueur in the guest rooms, and the hallways are lined with framed photos of 19th-century British sportsmen in all their windswept glory. The bar serves one of the most famed martinis in London courtesy of the hand of Antonio, the white dinner jacketed barman with impeccable flair, and afternoon tea is a production filled with finger sandwiches and clotted cream. While there’s no spa or fitness center here — it wouldn’t really fit in with the Victorian style, after all — rooms still feature high-speed Internet and iPod docks.
