London's hotels are younger than many historic buildings in the city. Until the end of the nineteenth century, British hotels were often considered rather disreputable—even in the capital. But these great structures have lived exciting lives since. Writers, movie stars and visiting royalty have all set up temporary homes in London's grander hotels. Some, like Brown's or the Goring, have witnessed history being made. These days, with so many visitors coming to London, the capital's hotels are continually refurbishing to look their very best, but I'd urge you to take time to enquire about the history. You may be surprised who else has stayed in your room.
The Cavendish London

The Cavendish London is a modern hotel built on the site of Rosa Lewis' Cavendish Hotel. Feisty Rosa, who rose from kitchen maid to become London's “Queen of Cooks“ and mistress of Edward VII, created one of the most popular hotels in London. Even a direct hit from a Luftwaffe bomb in 1941 failed to dampen her spirits or destroy her beloved Cavendish.
