One of the most beautiful places in London is Hyde Park. Being a girl from New York I thoroughly enjoy spending time in any park that’s situated nicely right in the middle of a big, bustling city, it’s a tranquil escape. A way to wind down and relax amidst the hustle. A good morning run through the park is one of the most wonderful ways to start a day in London. When I headed back to the city for a few weeks I stayed at the Jumeirah Grosvenor Suites for two reasons … the property and its location.
The Grosvenor Suites is the perfect place to stay when you want to feel at home. Our suite to be honest was larger than my entire apartment. The oversized windows, high ceilings, and the very chic apartment décor make it feel truly like a home. Hidden kitchen, oversized dining table all make for the perfect spot to host breakfast, sip coffee and watch the city wake up. We spent a few nights here before heading out to the Cotswolds.
The friendly, quite talkative staff welcomed us with a massive spread of fruits, snacks and glasses of bubbly – now if only I could get this kind of service (let alone spread!) at home in my tiny humble abode. See below for what I’m talking about!
Do I really need to say more? If I didn’t sell you in with the fact that it is in a stones throw to Hyde Park then you should consider that it is a quick two minute walk over to Mayfair – quite possibly the chicest of neighborhoods in London. Surrounded by fantastic restaurants, great pubs and undeniably amazing shopping.
What to Eat:
As we were only there a few days and were going at warp speed – my mom had never been to London so we were running around the city a mile a minute – we only did breakfast in our room each morning. Solid English breakfast for sure. The pastries were a hit with us – what can I say – we’re sweet carb loving gals.
Definitely watch a magical London sunset from the room with a glass of bubbly. Seeing the sun set over the rooftops across the city will make you fall in love even more with this city. The perfect way to end a day.
Thank you to the amazing team at Jumeirah Grosvenor Suites for being such wonderful hosts, I cannot wait to be back!
