Light it Up with London’s May Fair Hotel

Coming off the high of the Olympics, London’s hotels retain an afterglow, their updated take on British hospitality more impressive than ever. Inaugurated by King George V in 1927, the 404-room May Fair was a Hollywood stomping ground in the 1960s and today is revered for its eight Signature Suites.

Recently on The Bachelorette, each is unique in tone and palette, while all are stylishly lavish without being overdone. Elton John stayed in the 2,138-square-foot Penthouse Suite, while Giorgio Armani hosted a private party in its sleek expanse (the views are to die for). For a recent soiree, Virgin opted for the exotic Opium Suite, its gorgeous red accents evocative of the brand’s own color scheme. The Asian-chic Ebony Suite, brand new to the collection this April (from about $1,959 a night), touts a private terrace and the latest in TOTO technology (like a massive color-changing tub and Gyrostream jet shower).

While in residence, be sure to sample the bubbly at 150 at The May Fair, dine on exquisite eastern Mediterranean fare at Quìnce and have a sinful whiskey-Cohiba (or Cohiba-chocolate) pairing at the new Cigar Room, a sexy courtyard space outfitted with daybeds, swing chairs, chain mail mesh walls and fireplaces.
