FINE HOTELS & RESORTS MEMBER

This boutique property, located near the 250-room Dorchester (53 Park Ln.; 44-20/7317-6530), are two of the most apt options for DEPARTURES readers (they have the same ownership). With just 46 rooms, the decor at 45 Park Lane is more contemporary (tan leather, oranges, and Ambarino marble) than its more traditional grand dame sister (bright florals, wood-paneling, four-poster beds), but the choice comes down to a matter of preference. The Dorchester’s Cantonese restaurant China Tang is a plug, as is the spa, which utilizes products like La Prairie and has the city’s most comprehensive facial menu. (Rooms, from $748)
