Hyatt Regency London

Named for the man who is viewed by most as the greatest ever British Prime Minister – and by many of those as the greatest Briton ever, period – the Hyatt Regency Hotel in London is better known to many as the Churchill Hotel. Located in West London, on the hugely wealthy Oxford Street – the London Monopoly board has Oxford Street as one of its most valued properties, and the nearby Mayfair as its oerall most expensive one. Oxrofd Street is in and of itself one of the busiest shopping streets in Europe, and is an attraction for tourists from all over the world. So popular is it with tourists that the shops nearby include a huge number devoted to selling London souvenir memoerabilia.

Hyatt Regency LondonThe location of the Churchill Hotel is as advantageous as they come. Not only is it within touching dostance of Mayfair, with its famed shopping streets Saville Row (the home of high-class tailoring in the UK) and Bond Street (a fashion and jewelery Mecca), but a short distance to the west you will find two of London’s most famous landmarks – the Marble Arch and Hyde Park. To the North you will find such tourist attractions as London Zoo – one of the world’s most high profile and popular zoos – and Baker Street. Baker Street is famous in large part for one specific reason. It is the home of Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary fictitious detective Sherlock Holmes – a man whose incredible instinct and forensic attention to detail enabled him to solve crimes that left his assistant, Doctor Watson, profoundly baffled.

In the hotel itself, everything is geared towards giving the visitor an experience of unforgettable class and luxury. Although built at the start of the 1970s, Hyatt’s first London project has a sense of history that makes it one of the ultimate homes of English tradition. The feel of the rooms is one of old English class, with fixtures and fittings such as marble baths that would not be out of place in far older builds like the Savoy and the Ritz. In the rooms, though, the freedom of choice is very much of a modern bent, with all rooms offering satellite TV, voicemail and high-sped Internet access. In the higher-class Club Rooms, you will be bale to enjoy such luxuries as DVD players and luxury toiletries, and if you upgrade to the Regency Suites you will benefit from access to the Regency Club lounge.

Options for dining include the Locanda Locatelli restaurant. With an Italian feel in both its food menu and wine list, this restaurant gives the diner a true Italian experience, while if you choose the nearby Montagu – located in the same street (Portman Square) as the hotel, you can enjoy traditional British cuisine at any time of the day. And for fans of malt whisky, the Churchill Bar claims to have the best range of malts in all of London – a proud and for many potential visitors deal clinching boast.
