Five Star: Placed among the twenty-five best hotels, the Berkeley was awarded the best UK business hotel in 2007 by Conde Nast traveler. The Berkeley is perfectly placed with Hyde Park as a backdrop and the renowned Knightsbridge's stores close by. With a history that dates back to the 19th century, this hotel has a bit of experience in hospitality. In fact, at one time it was one of the only places in London that young women were permitted to visit unchaperoned, because parents trusted the staff to keep watch.

The Berkley's spacious rooms and suites are designed to be majestic. Decorated in lush and rich fabrics, very few rooms look alike. Well appointed and comfortable, there is a large selection of suites to choose from ranging from large to small, classic to modern.

The Berkley is blessed with some of the best bars and restaurants in London. Michelin-starred restaurant, Pètrus, is headed by acclaimed chef Marcus Wareing; a protégé of celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay. For a true culinary experience, guests may opt to reserve the Chef's Table. Located in the kitchen itself, patrons may observe the craft and attention to detail that takes normally place behind closed doors. Dining here, guests also have the opportunity to interact with the chef himself as he discusses his menu. Blue Bar, a Madonna favorite, offers a selection of over 50 whiskies, and a large array of others spirits. Also available is the Grape and Smoke menu, specially designed to pair fine cigars and fine wine.

A Fitness Health Club and Spa is available to all guests, and offers state of art facilities. Instructors are provided to ensure you get the most out your workout or simply offer good advice on enhancing your routine. After a workout treat your self to a Coconut Scrub or Hot Stone Massage at the on-site spa. A rooftop pool also offers the chance to relax while taking in the panoramic view of the Hyde Park.

Winner of over a dozen of awards world-wide, The Berkeley, London is a hotel that has earned the right to be called one of the best. Luxurious amenities, finely-appointed suites, and world-class restaurants are all reasons to call this establishment home the next time you find yourself traveling to London.
