Located in St. James is this upscale and well-renowned property, having received numerous accolades as one of the world’s best hotels. Set in the 16th Century palace built by Henry the VIII, St. James have long been a retreat of royalty, and guests will be treated like royalty at Dukes, enjoying its famous bar, Champagne Lounge, Cognac & Cigar Garden, and Drawing Room and Conservatory for daily High Tea service. Even little ones are treated like royalty with the Mini Dukes and Duchesses offer, where families can book a luxurious room or suites and get a second children’s room, breakfast, and toys, while enjoying a 24-hour kids concierge, kids bathrobe and slippers, PlayStation, Xbox, and kids’ menu. To accommodate families without a special offer, the Junior Suite holds a king or two twins and can add a third bed to the room to sleep three, while a one-bedroom suite with separate living and sleeping rooms can sleep four with the addition of two additional beds that can be added. These suites also have a dining room for four. All guests receive complimentary Wi-Fi, and any guest of a Deluxe room may receive chauffeur service to and from any London airport. Award-winning meals can also be enjoyed at Duke’s THIRTY-SIX, which is open Tuesday through Saturday for lunch (12 to 2:30 p.m.) and dinner (6 to 9:30 p.m.).

Absolutely love Dukes Hotel. From the moment of arrival to your departure, the staff could not be more kind and caring. Great location, superb food, without doubt, the best Martini. Wouldn’t go any where else in London
Stepping away from the hustle & bustle of Piccadilly and into Dukes Hotel brings sudden warmth and comfort after a long day of shopping, business meetings, touring or museum exploring. Then sliding into a comfy velvet chair at Dukes Hotel Bar and being pampered by the great Alessandro Palazzi and his famous martinis (iconic Old Fashioned, too!) is the best topping of any day. Dukes Hotel rooms are cushy and inviting, with luxury linens, soaps, speedy wifi and perfect flat-screen televisions. Dukes Hotel has become my favourite hotel in London, having visited regularly since 1980 ... even better than my very comfortable flat when I lived in London several years ago. It is my second home, with London at your doorstep!
