With The Connaught currently undergoing renovations, it has given me an opportunity to rediscover other London hotels. This year I’ve now stayed 5 times in The Bulgari and once at Shangri-La, Four Seasons Ten Trinity, The Corinthia and on Thursday night at The Beaumont. I’ve always mentioned the value that The Beaumont offers, yet if I do a comparison between it and The Bulgari, you may understand just how over the top it is.
I’ve stayed at The Bulgari 6 times, 5 of which this year, and The Beaumont maybe 7 or 8 times, with this being the first time this year.
Living room. Treasure hunt time.
Coffee table with all the essentials I need to survive
Large bottles of still and sparkling water
Large fruit selection and smaller snacks
Beside chocolate. Why make you walk to get that shameful midnight snack?
Some more snacks, as I was starting to feel a bit unloved with only 15kg of food
The greatest amenity ever and one which I assume is now in every room in the hotel
Now let’s take a look at what The Bulgari offers.
My very soul is evaporating quicker than I can eat these
The Beaumont also has a large selection of free movies including recently released films, whereas The Bulgari charges £19.99 per film. Spa prices and restaurant prices are incredibly reasonable too, meaning that it’s still true what I said previously: 3 nights in The Beaumont is probably going to cost you less than 2 nights in a comparative 5 star hotel.
I cannot believe Browns in London hasn’t been featured yet 🙂
I shall accept that as a formal invitation!
Please do review the Browns…I was there 18 months ago and a tad underwhelmed.
To what extent are all those Beaumont in-room amenitie limited to suite bookings? Considering my first stay there…
If you send a Stay List in advance, I’m sure they’ll take care of all the reasonable requests for you, regardless of what room category you’re in. The photo of me in your room is non-optional though.
