Hotel- Luxuries come in different shapes and sizes
Only a few get to experience pleasures of life which come in the form of 7-star hotels and top notch Michelin star restaurants. Luxuries, as stated above, come in every size and shape. The Danesfield House in Marlow, Cliveden House in Berkshire, Hot 41 in London, etc., are extremely well-known hotels across the United Kingdom, but have you ever stopped to think the amount of efforts it takes to maintain such hotels?
The humongous amount of money put into building such hotels is insane. The construction is usually based on designs by the best architects in business and based on planning, drafting and designing of these massive structures. Different types of architecture require different designers and it involves months and sometimes years of planning. A huge amount of investment is required with the best infrastructure in the world. Thus, delivering the best hotels in the world.
The types of crowds seen in hotels range from the upper middle class to the richest in town and the corporate world. Luxury hotels aren’t just an abode for honeymoon vacations and couples’ getaway, various events in the medical, IT and other sectors are organised. It symbolises class and standard. It represents the city in which it is built and sets it class apart. The hotel is showcased to the entire world as a pride and a symbol.
A hotel can be small yet a boutique hotel, and on the other hand, it can even be a huge palace transformed into a beautiful hotel. Theme hotels are another variety. There are hotels which boast of infinity pools and beautiful expanses of fields. There are hotels spread over acres of land, no less than a theme park. There every amenity a person needs, and exploring a hotel of such class is in itself an experience. They beauty of the rooms are captivating. One such hotel would be The Milestone Hotel in London, or the Taj Buckingham Gate Suites. However expensive they may be, these hotels don’t run on loss since they are owned by chains of other huge brands. The brand name sets it apart. Class apart to be specific.
These luxury hotels have breath-taking interiors. The Belmond Le Manoir, by celebrated chef Raymond Blanc, situated in the Oxfordshire village of Great Milton, is one of UK’ s most intricately designer hotels with 32 suites. It portrays the idyllic English setting with beautiful gardens, lawns and picturesque orchards. These places may be insanely expensive and are perhaps not everyone’s cup of tea, but those who get to experience such beauties, truly carry a lot of memories. The hotel received 2 Michelin stars and boasts of the best culinary experiences in town. The Hotel 41, located near Buckingham Palace and Western Theatre in London has a club like setting, with state of the art technology.
The Montague on the Gardens consists of a beautiful Georgian Townhouse. One can enjoy live jazz in a Cuban bar or calm afternoon tea by the beautiful gardens. The hotel is by the British Museum and owned by the Red Carnation hotel collection, which boasts of luxury hotels across various location in the UK.
Getting discounted rooms in these hotels may be difficult as they are run by independent chains, but the corporate industry has its own perks.
Perhaps I am the most jealous of people who get the opportunity to stay in star hotels as a part of corporate training programmes for a span of time. They get to enjoy every luxury under their company’s expenses. Being in the medical profession too is a boon. The biggest conferences and events are conducted in the poshest hotels in the city. The sophisticated Brown’s Hotel in London is celebrating its 175th anniversary. Such old is their grandeur. The Barnsley House in Cirencester consists of cinema systems in each room along with two baths in the 17th-century manor house. Watching the sunset by the garden suite is a mesmerizing experience. This is what makes these hotels stand apart, their old-school beauty intertwined with luxury. It has one of the best food in town and a Village styled pub right across the street. A little bit for everyone. They have a garden spa with 5 treatment rooms from which people can gaze into the Cotswold landscape and the lush green gardens.
Whatever the case may be, luxury hotels will always stand apart, with their aesthetic grandeur and facilities.
