The Ritz London may fill its rooms with Louis XVI-style décor and furnishings, but you’ll find some modern technology in there as well. On top of the mauve marble fireplace, there’s a Bose radio and CD player. If you need an outlet adapter, scour your mini-bar for the Skross product that also charges USB devices. And bring your laptop or tablet: Complimentary Wi-Fi is available in the room (and throughout the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel). A silver flat-screen Sony television rests on a table, with a Sony DVD player in a shelf underneath it. Call down to the front desk to borrow from a library of DVDs. Also give a call down if you’d like to borrow a laptop, fax machine, iPod docking station and a PlayStation or Wii; the London hotel offers loaners or can arrange to get the gadgets in your room.
