One of the most enticing hotels you'll find in London where you can spend a sexy weekend that will indulge your senses in the most extravagant ways. Blakes is the creation of former Bond girl Anouska Hempel who has taken luxury and couture to a new level with her hotel. Each of the 52 rooms are a veritable feast for the eyes with all the decor and furnishings providing a feel of sumptuous luxury. If you value your privacy, no worries here; this is one of the very few hotels where celebrities from all walks of life can check-in and not worry about paparazzi. Jack Nicholson, Robert DeNiro, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Gisele Bundchen, and other well-known celebs have stayed here. What rooms are recommended? All are extremely luxurious and chic, but request the White Suite or Room 309. There's a wonderful bar and restaurant downstairs, but room service is all you'll need at Blakes. Quite spectacular by any standard for those sophisticated travelers who appreciate a superb quality of service.
