Boutique Hotels You Haven't Heard Of

by Andrew Harper

The Goring

Location: Central London, near Buckingham Palace and Victoria Station

Andrew Harper's take: "The 71-room Goring Hotel (view slideshow) is a delightful small property within a stone's throw of the Queen's back garden at Buckingham Palace. You won't find a pool or a high-tech gymnasium here, but if you're an Anglophile, you'll be delighted by the property's winningly frumpy country-house decor: cream and lemon diamond-pane wallpaper over painted wainscoting, bronze damask curtains, mahogany headboards, and ginger-jar lamps. I once enjoyed a classic English lunch of roast beef with horseradish and bread sauce, Yorkshire pudding, roasted potatoes, and Brussels sprouts here. It's almost impossible to find a meal like this in London anymore."

Cost: Doubles from $340
