Combine a boutique hotel London stay with sales shopping
If you are considering staying in a boutique hotel London has a good range in close proximity to the major shopping centres, including hotels near Oxford Street itself.
You will also find plenty of hotels near Hyde Park, a perfect base from which to hit the shops. From your boutique hotel you can access all the major shopping areas and staff there will be able to point you in the direction of anything specific that you may require.
For anyone staying at a boutique hotel London is thus the ideal location in which to combine long days in the shops with some relaxing down time, perfect after a hectic Christmas.
Oxford Street and Regent Street offer a myriad of shops with everything from clothing stores to jewellery havens. You will find technical giants such as Apple and the world famous toy store Hamleys. This is the perfect place in which to spend a younger visitor's pocket money. Don't miss the world famous Selfridges department store, which offers just about everything imaginable under one roof.
Further to the south west, Knightsbridge offers a delightful high end shopping experience with boutiques and independent retailers, guaranteeing some unique purchases. This area is of course well known for Harvey Nicholls and Harrods. Harrods has a globally renowned January sale, which attracts large crowds as well as large discounts. Combining a browse with a glass of champagne in one of the bars or a bite to eat certainly helps to get in the spirit.
London is an exciting, sprawling shopper's delight and you can find just about anything to suit your tastes and budget. The Westfield shopping centre is a mall near the Olympic site, with the major high street brands represented. If you prefer something a little more original or quirky, you may want to visit Camden or Portobello for the markets.
Mayfair is the favoured area to visit for beautiful suits and business wear. The tailors on Saville Row will be able to help with an individual handmade design, perfect for the business executive or for those who are perhaps getting married or attending a special event in the New Year.
When choosing a boutique hotel London may thus represent just the place in which to rest after a hard day flexing the plastic. For more information or to book your boutique hotel stay, please contact our team for further information, rates and availability.
