Hotel Café Royal Celebrates Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

Guests can stay in the opulent Royal Suite and visit the Crown Jewels.

By Irenie Forshaw

This year, Her Majesty the Queen became the longest-serving British monarch in history, marking 70 years on the throne. As you would expect, celebrations will be extravagant with a pageant featuring over 5,000 people set to take place near Buckingham Palace this summer. If you’re hoping to join the festivities, there’s good news: Hotel Café Royal has curated a unique luxury experience to give guests a taste of Royal life.

Those visiting the hotel on the first weekend of June 2022 that opt for the Crown Jewels and Royal Coronation Regalia experience will have the chance to stay in the aptly named Royal Suite overlooking Regent Street in the heart of London’s ultra-exclusive Mayfair district.

The 3,220-sq-ft suite features two spacious bedrooms, two living rooms decorated with elegant gilded plasterwork and three stunning Carrera marble bathrooms. Quite literally fit for a Queen, the golden-hued apartment is the perfect setting to indulge in the festivities and host your own unforgettable party. Of course, a butler will be on-hand to cater to your every whim.

In the evening, you’ll be driven to the Tower of London in a Daimler which once belonged to the Queen Mother for an exclusive after-hours’ tour led by one of the Queen’s Beefeaters (guards of the tower) and champagne reception.

The pièce de résistance, however, is the private viewing of the Crown Jewels and the Royal Collection at the Jewel House. Here, you’ll be able to marvel at the glittering treasures on display including the largest diamond in the world, St Edward’s solid gold crown and Sovereign’s Orb, and the Imperial State Crown adorned with over 2,000 diamonds and a breathtaking collection of sapphires, rubies and emeralds.

“For more than a century and a half, our landmark property has welcomed its fair share of famous patrons – including several royals,” says Guillaume Marly, managing director at Hotel Café Royal. “It’s only fitting that we offer guests this highly personal experience fit for a Queen (or King) in honor of the Jubilee celebration. Every touchpoint of the Crown Jewels and Royal Regalia experience was selected by our team with majesty in mind, but the true crown jewel is certainly the exclusive opportunity to be in the Tower of London, a Royal palace, during the Jubilee weekend.”

If you’re looking for something a bit more casual, you can opt for the Royal Jewels and Afternoon Tea experience. Guests staying in any room at Hotel Café Royal over the summer will be able to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee with a trip to a Royal-warrant holding jeweler in Mayfair to see a display of Royal tiaras and jewels followed by a champagne reception in the jeweler’s private salon. After the visit, you’ll be chauffeur-driven back to the hotel for traditional afternoon tea in the lavish Oscar Wilde Lounge with more bubbly, before enjoying cocktails in the cozy bar.

The Hotel Café Royal Jubilee Weekend Crown Jewels and Royal Coronation Regalia experience is available for guests staying in the Royal Suite and is priced at $19,540 per night. The Royal Jewels and Afternoon Tea experience is available for guests staying in any room or suite category between June 1 and October 1 with prices starting at $2,420.
