Anyway, back to it. Thank you Buster and FlyerEC! I saw the Halkin but instead of going 50%, I want the best. Seems like the hotel is good but not great. It's my first time in London so I minus well do it 100%! Looks like the Connaught or the Beaumont are the frontrunners as of now. The Lanesborough, in my opinion, looks horrendous. I notice that many FT'ers cautioned booking a 'suite' since they are either smaller, on a lower level or not updated. Price aside, does anyone have any specific rooms that they have enjoyed?

Also, side note, does anyone recommend a car service in London that they have used? I'd like to get a driver for a day or two. Thanks!
MacMyDay can let you know which suites to stay at Connaught . We stayed in a fairly spacious one last year which was one of the renovated - “ cool & modern “ . The other was classic / traditional with a tiny bathroom .
The other ‘ modern ‘ bathroom was alright but only half the size at best of all the bathrooms we have had at Halkin - brubin may chime in about this too .

The public areas at Connaught are not minimalist modern if that is what you are looking for though
