London's best new luxury hotels

Artist Residence London

Artist Residence London

From retro charm to modern and sleek, these are the finest new luxury digs in London.

If you were looking for a word that captures the newer high-end accommodation options springing up in London, "diverse" perhaps might be the best option.

Artist Residence, a boutique chain with properties in Brighton and Cornwall, has opened a 10-room hotel in Pimlico that's distinguished by an offbeat luxury expressed in carefully tuned details. A retro Smeg mini fridge nestles in the fireplace of one suite, brimming with Burgundy, elderflower soft drink and coconut water, while a beautiful British-made Roberts radio burbles the Home Service on the bedside table.

At The Langham, meanwhile, it's a more classic sort of luxury on show at the hotel's new Regent Wing. Opened to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the hotel along with the Sterling Suite, a 450-square-metre six-bedroom show-stopper, the new wing comprises 47 rooms that mix signature Langham plushness, prints and wallpaper with crisply modern touches such as the Nespresso coffee machines. A separate entrance to Regent Street, meanwhile, adds to the appeal for guests who value privacy.

And speaking of discretion, should private entertaining be on the agenda, The Marylebone's new London Suites have arrived just in time for anyone who likes to be deep in the city, but not necessarily consumed by it. The three suites sit high atop the hotel, offering striking views of central London. The largest of them, The Marylebone, has a substantial terrace kitted out, appropriately enough, with a fireplace and a retractable roof.

Artist Residence London, 52 Cambridge St; rooms from $500. The Langham, London, 1c Portland Pl, Regent St; Regent Wing rooms from $967. The Marylebone, 47 Welbeck St, London; rooms from $490, suites from $2177.
