The Best Hotels In & Near London Oxford Street
Precious few things can sum up Britishness quite like our service can and in London’s grand hotels near to the famous Oxford Street, this tradition still rings true today. Here’s your guide, in no particular order. Tip your doorman.
A restored Rococo ceiling invites you into this very grand hotel in the very stylish Fitzrovia suburb, just off Oxford Street. The hotel itself is gorgeous with revered levels of service and the quiet, unobtrusive attentive service that is the hallmark of the British hospitality industry.
Part of the London “institution”, the Langham has been setting the standard in luxury and service for 156 years. From £353 a night, the hotel is in a prime location and a favoured meeting spot for the city’s well-heeled.
Found on New Quebec Street, the hotel is something resembling a Cotswolds gastro-pub. Located just minutes away from Selfridges, one of London’s most famed department stores, the Grazing Goat speaks to the wonderful tradition of English eccentricity that still runs in our blood today.
Another fine hotel with a grand tradition, the Conrad is renowned for luxury service and an outstanding location. Just steps away from some of the most popular sites in the city such as Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and Buckingham Palace.
This 24 room Georgian townhouse is moments away from Oxford Street in one of the city’s most desirable locations. The quirky establishment offers you the chance to live in a fashionable address surrounded by the great and good of the capital, for a very reasonable nightly rate.
So good it got a mention in a Leonard Cohen song. Okay...so maybe not exactly the way we think but this hotel on Great Cumberland Place serves up chic surroundings, a world-class spa, fabulous dining, and a mean cocktail list.
Now here’s a central London hotel that is affordable but still manages to pack a style punch inside. It features a minimalist design in its rooms, which come with a small kitchenette for those wanting a boho dine-in feel.
Another offering in gentle Fitzrovia, the Charlotte Street Hotel offers a unique stay with a convivial bar. Movie club nights combine a 3-course meal in the underground screening room for a modern luxe touch.
Something of an icon in Hyde Park (as the website will proudly tell you), in its 50-year history “the Royal” has welcomed some very interesting guests. In the name of discretion they’ll never tell...but Google will: Princess Diana and Muhammad Ali have both stayed here previously!
One of the “grand dames” of the Waldorf persuasion. Built-in the 1800s, the hotel combines Edwardian splendour with modern-day comfort. It offers glitzy surroundings and is just minutes away from the Royal Opera House, the British Museum and more. Nighttimes can be quite formal, so dress to impress and invite friends to meet you for a drink.
Located on the corner of Oxford Street and Park Lane in a hard to beat location. From this über-cool locale, you’ll be minutes away from Speaker’s Corner, Hyde Park and Marble Arch. As the name suggests this hotel serves those who actually look good in skinny jeans, but anyone can claim a slice of rock’n’roll heaven with one of their classic rooms.
No one needs to be told anything about Claridges. At least not anyone that hasn’t been living at any other address (those who stay here, they know). Princess Diana, George and Barbara Bush, and many other notable notables have all called Claridges home for a few days at some point. Be prepared to spend, but it’s worth it for a night at one of the best addresses in all of London.
Well, you couldn’t have a top hotels list in London and not have this property on it. With its fabled contemporary design, top-class location and reputation for the very best service and discretion, it’s no wonder this hotel regularly makes the list for the most luxurious hotels in the world. Each room even boasts its own “host” to take care of you.
This hotel is so classy, it has two names in it and absolutely no abbreviations. Don’t call it the “Churchie” or any variation of that. But what you can call it is seriously stylish. Located in Marylebone, moments away from Oxford Street and Bond Street, this hotel throws back to the grand tradition of hoteliers in old London.
London is full of hotels trying to “out-pretence” each other with modern touches on “old world style” façades, new age sleeping pods with fusion cooking. The Dorchester, however, isn’t that. This is the real deal. Refinement, understated and attentive service, the utmost discretion and one of the finest addresses in London. Makes you proud to be British, if that’s your thing.
Many things make London stand out from the rest of the world’s top cities. Iconic sites, thousands of years of history on every corner and the knowledge that we were once the centre of the greatest empire the world has ever seen. That, and we have some of the worst weather in the world...hmm, perhaps that’s why our hotels try a little harder. What’s your favourite pedigree British hotel near the famous Oxford Street area?
