Summer in London, Just Like the Royals

Bookies are now shelling out thousands of pounds for 5-to-1 bets that Kate Middleton and Prince William would be engaged this month, but they're in the minority when it comes to sour feelings about the engagement. After the initial press release and interviews, congratulations came pouring in for this lucky young couple. The Queen said she was pleased, Prince Charles sounded relieved, and Prince Harry ecstatic about gaining a sister. Step-mother Camilla Parker Bowles livened things up by calling the engagement "wicked" and "brilliant."

With the royal wedding slated for summer 2011 and an avalanche of press coming Prince William and Kate Middleton’s way, we’re hardly surprised that London luxury hotels are getting stepped up a notch. While Kate's flashing her sapphire engagement ring, people are already abuzz with speculation about Middleton's dress, the venue, the honeymoon, and Prince William's best man. Suffice it to say, these two are going to have their hands full when it comes to planning the wedding of the century, but they’re not going to do it alone. So why should you when it comes to travel planning, booking, arranging, and organizing?

You probably don’t have a special title like Prince William, but you can still vacation like someone who does. Take Four Seasons London at Park Lane, where you get excellent accommodations, plus some Exclusive Complimentary Perks. Coming off an extensive multi-million pound restoration, the new surroundings will stun you before the service does. Since all of London's major museums are free (barring some special exhibits), you can easily go from this centrally-located hotel to the Tate Modern, the National Portrait Gallery, and the Museum of London for a dose of royal-approved culture. Take afternoon tea at the hotel after seeing the sights, and taste the crumpets, scones, clotted creams, and pound cake during the memorable feast!

If you prefer a more secluded spot, the Flemings Mayfair is an excellent match. It is considered one of the best-kept secrets in Central London, and it has a special kind of service that makes people feel as if they’re “coming home” when they show up. Of course, that home you have doesn’t offer Exclusive Complimentary Perks, which is a reason to come to London in 2011. As one regular guest said about the Mayfair, “One is scooped up by a genuinely warm and friendly welcome, created by the delightful staff and the charming atmosphere. One is immediately put at ease and has a tremendous sense of belonging.”

No matter who you are, if you go to London in summer 2011, you can stay in a hotel that leaves you feeling both pampered and important...without all the pressure of being a royal. It's a sweet compromise, and one that couldn't be accomplished without those exclusive perks through
