In the end, I booked an "Executive Room" at The Goring for around $431/night (base rate) in late April. I like that I can cancel up to the day before, since its unclear what the world travel situation will be. Looks like an upgrade is theoretically possible through the Amex Hotel Collection and I get $100 credit for F&B, so I think this is going to be an excellent adventure.

Now I just have to figure out how to shed myself of my natural Beverly Hillbilly persona before arrival!!

Any thoughts on the Corinthia ?
Some of the top suites with terraces look very solid

Was quite often discussed in the thread and in the Forum. Here some examples:
Corinthia Hotel London
Help with London Hotels
Corinthia hotel -- London
Twelve London hotels — recent site inspections
Which London hotel?
Corinthia London

It seems it´s mostly seen as an upscale, business hotel. I agree top-suites looks nice, but not sure if for the price-tag it´s the best choice.

Its a small thing, but I really noticed it the few times I've visited the Corinithia. The hotel does not smell like a luxury hotel. If you visit any of the other properties mentioned they smell clean or have a nice fragrance. Whatever they are doing fragrance wise or cleaning, is not working. The hard product is excellent and the service is in line with a large upscale almost luxury business, but they miss the mark on true luxury like the other properties.

What is the best option for a stay in or near London complying with UK's self-isolation guidelines? Preferably somewhere with a personal backyard or terrace...

If you are looking for something with a nice terrace without dipping into your trust fund,
I would suggest on of the Terrace Suites at the Marylebone.

Terrace ranges in size from 216sf to 432sf with fireplace and fantastic view over the rooftops of London.
It's in one of the hottest neighborhoods

It's a real gem.
