We stayed in The London Hotel for a few nights during our recent ‘engagement-holiday’ to NYC and I can honestly say it’s one of the most beautiful hotels we’ve ever stopped in.
You know when you walk through the door and your immediate response is ‘WOW’ – yeah, that’s the general vibe of this hotel. So get prepared for amazingness.
The hotel is perfectly positioned for exploring the city, about 4 blocks south of Central Park, and 10 blocks north of Times Square.
So when I saw awesome location, I mean it. The room we were in was just lovely, and kind of felt exactly like the kind of apartment you’d want to live in – if you lived in NYC.
There was an entrance hall, a lounge area, a bedroom and a huge bathroom (the bathroom was the best bit – but I’ll explain why in a second).
The Living Room… Stylish but minimalist, the living room made for a comfy break-out space from the bedroom – perfect if you’re ordering take-out or having room service, etc.
There was also a massive window with beautiful city views stretching right around the corner of the room, which is something you can’t put a price on.
The other side of the living area, looking through to the bedroom. There were glass mirrored doors to seperate if needed.
The bedroom. Where we had many a perfect nights sleep.
ALSO the bed is huge. There’s another TV in there to the left, but it’s not in shot.

OK, now onto the bathroom. Not only was it gorgeous and all white and shiny and marble (like a spa) but it had a double shower. I’m going to try and describe the awesomeness of it, but you really had to be there.
Basically the shower which had two sides (one each!) was about 8 feet long and had two different types of shower heads in each bit. One was a power shower, the other was a big rainfall shower.
Oh, and not forgetting the view – which was pretty sweet too! We woke up on our last morning and all the rooftops were covered in snow which was so beautiful. I forgot to take photos though – because I was too excited about the snow and too busy jumping around shouting about it.
As I mentioned before, I learnt from our trip to NYC, that hotels like this don’t always have to be out of your budget too. On the surface this is a beautiful, luxury, hotel. I think if I was looking at photos of this hotel on someone else’s blog I’d assume it was out of my price range – which it isn’t.
If you book through websites like booking.com you can get hotels like this for great prices. Their London Sky Suite is currently discounted £1500 less than the normal rate on there at the moment – so it just goes to show you can find a great deal, and you shouldn’t rule beautiful hotels like this out, because it may in fact be in your budget after all.
