The Sumner
Sober and understated, with 20 four-star rooms with a modern luxe design scheme; plus a log fire in the sitting room, air con, honesty bar and free WiFi. =
The Orange
Restaurant-quality room-service because these four king-sized rooms, luxuriously appointed with aircon, blonde woods and crisp linens, are above the Orange gastropub. yEventWatch
The Pelham
The Gore's sister hotel, acquired from the Kemp-ire, is predictably a fresher, more contemporary affair, with 52 five-star rooms conveniently located for museum action. yEventWat

There is one name around the world that conjures up evocative images of opulent grandeur and that name is The Ritz.

Art Deco interiors park views and a guest-book that reads like a who's who of Hollywood; it's all here at the Athenaeum Hotel & Apartments.
