Here are our favorite London dining rooms and other destinations.
Colonnade Town House Hotel
We find London's tree-lined, canal-laced Little Venice area impossibly charming, and this beautiful boutique hotel fits right in. Its 43 rooms feature luxurious touches like Frette linens and complimentary fresh fruit but have the intimacy of a private home.
The Rubens at the Palace
You may not exactly be living like a Queen, but you'll be living next to a Queen at this cozy, wonderfully staffed hotel across from Buckingham Palace.
The Portrait Restaurant
expensive, 011-44-207-312-2490. From this rooftop restaurant atop the National Portrait Gallery, you can enjoy panoramic views of Big Ben, Parliament, and Trafalgar Square. You can also enjoy chef Brendan Fyldes' simple, fresh British bites, that, depending on the day, might include a blue-cheese-and-leek quiche or filet of salmon with mash and asparagus spears.
