Meghan Markle may soon become a resident of Kensington Palace, once she walks down the aisle to marry Prince Harry of course, but she’s still got a few favorite hotels around London that she recommends for a quick getaway.
Before she met Prince Harry, Meghan had already fallen in love with London and the British way of life. In 2015, while in London for business meetings and to do a bit of press for her show, Suits, Meghan sat down with Jumeirah magazine to share a few of her favorite things about London, including her favorite place to stay: the Grosvenor House Suites.
“I can give you the most honest answer; it’s my favorite property I’ve ever stayed at,” Meghan said. And although it must be noted Grosvenor House is a Jumeirah property, she sounded like she genuinely meant it. “I’m very fortunate that I have the luxury of staying at so many amazing places, but the service, and being able to stay somewhere where it feels like home, where every need is anticipated, it’s all fantastic. I really love it here and I’m happy to be staying. I’m even happy that I don’t have to fib.”
The hotel, located on Park Lane in Mayfair, is serendipitously located just one mile away from Kensington Palace. There, the hotel offers several luxury serviced apartments that overlook Hyde Park and come with the “privacy, comfort and generous living space of a contemporary Mayfair residence,” according to the website. Apartments at the hotel range from about $500 to $2,000 a night.
“If there is one thing you won’t have to worry about during your stay at Grosvenor House Suites, it’s effortless living and experiencing London like a true local,” the hotel further explains on its site. “Our specially created ‘At Home with Jumeirah Living’ program offers a truly unique way to enjoy the luxury London lifestyle from your home on Park Lane. From organising a dinner party, to setting up your home office and stocking your home with the finest groceries, we make everything completely effortless from the moment you arrive.”
The hotel, Hello Magazine further explained, includes 130 residences, including four London Suites and four Penthouse Suites.
In each of the apartments guests can access 24-hour room service, all the in-residence spa and beauty services, an on-site fitness center, and a restaurant, along with a stunning atrium.
Perhaps following their wedding, Meghan will take Harry to the hotel for a staycation where they can get away from it all just one mile down the road from their real royal life.
