Welcome to Hotel 41!

We arrived in London and luckily found our way easily to the train station and into the taxi cue! It only took about 15 minutes to get through the line and on our way to the hotel!

Chris had kept the hotel a secret from me, so it was a lot of fun to see where we ended up! He booked a room for us at Hotel 41, very close to Buckingham Palace! In fact, the address was 41 Buckingham Palace Road! It’s a very quaint, boutique hotel with only a simple flag outside!

This is a 28-room hotel with a black and white theme. Everything on the inside from the floor tiling, wallpaper, room d├ęcor, etc. is all done in black and white with rich brown wood accents!

One thing that did not go unnoticed was the amazing customer service. The minute we stepped foot in the tiny lobby area, our bags were taken and we were whisked away to their upstairs “library,” which was where breakfast was served, their business center and concierge desk was located! Once we arrived in the library, we were served tea and a few pastries while we waited to check in!

After a pot of Earl Grey tea and a mini croissant or two, we were escorted to our room!

Since Chris must have mentioned we were on our honeymoon, they were kind enough to upgrade us to one of their best suites in the hotel; it was amazing! Three rooms, three bathrooms (which included heated tile floors and plasma screen TV’s), and a huge walk in closet! (Plus a fairly decent view!)

It even had a flat-screen TV that, with the touch of a button, would come up and lower back down into a chest! It was great; Chris loved it!

We spent the next hour or so unpacking and settling in! Afterwards, we were off to explore!!
P.S. Chris has much better pictures, which I will post when I get them! :)
