The hotel worked with designer Shaun Clarkson to renovate each of its suites in a “modern classic” style.

Nice Plus: The historical hotel has entered into a partnership with Thomas Goode & Co. to display a rotating exhibit of exclusive items by the porcelain maker in the Duke of Clarence Suite, also known as the Penthouse Suite.

The Junior Suites (combined bedroom and a sitting area separated by an archway) and One-Bedroom suite (with a separate sitting room that includes a dining area for four, and optional connection to a Superior room for families or VIPs) sound great, but we’re most excited about the Duke of Clarence Penthouse Suite, which was renovated last year.

Top Views: This fifth-floor suite has a private outside terrace overlooking Clarence House (the London home of HRH the Prince of Wales) and Green Park.

The suite has a separate living room and dining area (complete with a table for four) and a large bedroom. Good for Families: An adjoining separate Classic Double guest room is available on request. Business-focused guests will appreciate the suite’s five telephones (never miss a call!), and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi access. Bonus for families (or for grown-ups who haven’t lost touch with the child in them): PlayStations and Xbox players are available upon request. Best of all: Guests can ask for a 24-hour butler service.

Family Friendly: Dukes provides some nice perks for younger guests. Kids under six years old will receive a “Dukesy” dog toy at bedtime, and older children (between six and fourteen years old) will receive a storybook on their pillow at turndown. In addition, the hotel provides children’s slippers and has designated children’s television channels. Playstation games are also available.

Great for summer nights: The hotel’s Cognac and Cigar Garden is now open, so guests can choose from an array of fine cigars (including some Cuban favorites) and sip a fine cognac. The newest addition to the hotel’s bar lineup focuses on bubbly: The PJ Lounge serves Champagne and Champagne cocktails from partner Perrier Jouet.

Luxury travel advisors should reach out to General Manager Debrah Dhugga or Director of Sales & Marketing Declan Murphy (011-44-20-7491-4840).
