Sanctum Hotel

Sanctum Hotel

Debbie and Basil’s first stop is the Sanctum Hotel in London’s SoHo – a 4-star boutique hotel converted from 2 historic townhouses and known for its hip clientele. A luxury junior suite will cost the Rudawskys $4,500 for their 5-night stay.

Sanctum Hotel

Known for its edgy rock n’ roll glamour, the Sanctum Hotel in London’s Soho is a 30-room, 4-star boutique hotel converted from 2 historic Georgian townhouses. Rent a Harley and tour London like a rock god. Afterwards, keep the party alive all night long at the 24-hour rooftop bar (complete with a Jacuzzi). Located in London’s Soho neighborhood, it should come as no surprise that the unique property is known for its hip clientele.

Pros: Great Soho location, unique boutique hotel experience
Cons: If the 24-hour rock n’ roll lifestyle isn’t your thing (or if you’re a light sleeper), this may not be the hotel for you

Step back in time as you walk through the doors of the Stafford Hotel -- known for its classic luxury, 300-year-old wine cellar and world-famous American Bar. Located in London’s historic St. James neighborhood, the elegant and timeless property prides itself on its excellent concierge service and “home away from home” feel. In fact, Frank, the head concierge, was recently awarded the title of “Best Concierge in the World” by Luxury Travel Advisor. Follow him on Twitter @franklystafford for tips and info on London events.

Pros: Great St. James location, excellent concierge service and knowledge of guests’ likes and dislikes
Cons: Doesn’t have the hip and chic feel of the Sanctum Soho, but it all depends on your taste
Pennyhill Park Hotel and Spa

Pennyhill Park Hotel and Spa

Basil and Debbie’s next stop takes them out to the English countryside to Pennyhill Park Hotel and Spa, where more traditional luxury and 45,000-square-feet of spa facilities grab Debbie’s attention. Unfortunately, this regal retreat will cost the Rudawskys $12,000 for their 5-night stay.

The 45,000 square-feet of spa facilities are sure to grab your attention.
