Known for its theaters and museums, cultural venues include National Gallery, Piccadilly Theatre, and Lyceum Theatre. Other popular sights include Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly Circus.
What is a historic hotel like in London?
Guests who choose historic hotels have an opportunity to stay in a building recognized with an official historic designation. Historic hotels throughout the world come in all forms like stately homes, palaces or even lodges, old police stations or skyscrapers — any place of special interest. These types of hotels in London typically retain authentic characteristics like traditional architecture and period features in their communal spaces or guestrooms.
What is the difference between a historic hotel and a heritage hotel?
The two are similar. The term “historic hotel” is more common in the U.S., while “heritage hotel” is often used in Asia and Europe. Historic hotels tend to put more importance on the physical building and architecture. A heritage hotel draws meaning mainly from the cultural value that the place has and how it inspired the surrounding community.
Do historic hotels in London have modern facilities?
Yes, efforts are made to preserve historic facades and treasured traditions, but interiors include modern conveniences and safety features. Tourists who book a stay can expect the usual amenities you’d find in a hotel such as WiFi, heating and air conditioning, and updated bathroom facilities. Booking a historic hotel in London doesn’t mean you’re picking a place that’s rundown or uncomfortable for guests.
