Standards are always high at The Doyle Collection, and never more so than at The Westbury. Like its sisters, the three London hotels The Kensington, The Bloomsbury page and The Marylebone, it marries sleek design with intuitive staff and luxuriously comfortable rooms. Its unrivalled location, overlooking Grafton Street, brings a galaxy of consumer delights. After a long day your room will seem like the answer to a prayer – enveloping and soothing in shades of taupe, with custom-woven Irish wool carpets, mohair-covered chairs and underfloor-heated marble bathrooms. For dining there’s Balfes, a contemporary cross between New York eatery and Parisian brasserie, where the dishes match the edgy decor, or haute cuisine at the sophisticated Wilde. Don’t miss afternoon tea at The Gallery, surrounded by one of the country’s finest private art collections – an Irish institution. The Sidecar, meanwhile, is a stylish modern version of a ’30s cocktail bar.
