Despite an enviable location in central London a mere 10-minute walk from Piccadilly Circus, "the most immediate and lasting impression as a guest at Dukes is the silence", says The Daily Mail -- a sentiment (quietly) echoed by reviewers and guests alike.
Duke's is discreetly tucked away in a private courtyard in the exclusive neighborhood of St James's, the soft glow of its entrance beneath a billowing Union Jack.
Awarded four stars by Forbes in 2013 and winner of The AA Hotel of the Year in 2013/2014, Dukes was also named Europe's Leading Boutique Hotel at the European Travel Awards 2012. It is rumoured Princess Diana found refuge from the limelight, and James Bond author Ian Fleming did his cocktail research.
If you fancy a "shaken-not-stirred" experience of your own, be sure to pack your little black dress or lounge suit: formal attire is not out of place at Dukes Bar, where head barman Alessandro Palazzi dispenses bon mots and peerless martinis in equal measure. Also worth a visit is the Cognac and Cigar Garden, which is open year-round.
As you take the old-fashioned lift upstairs to one of Dukes's 90 rooms and suites, you'll discover "fresh and uncluttered" interiors (The Michelin Guide) and complimentary Wi-Fi and bottled water, and you get hand-made chocolates at turndown.
On-site restaurant Thirty Six by Nigel Mendham holds no fewer than three AA Rosettes and offers superb modern British cuisine. Work it off at the compact wellness suite on the lower level, complete with Technogym equipment, lockers, steam rooms and a beauty treatment room.
