What’s in a name… here’s 10 of the best ‘Royal’ Hotels

It occurred to me as I walked round my home town of Royal Tunbridge Wells that others who share a ‘Royal’ name maybe gearing up to celebrate with just a little more pomp and ceremony than usual. A quick search on Drake & Cavendish tells me that we feature 63 luxury hotels with ‘Royal’ in their name. You can see the full list at this link ‘Royal Hotels’.

Using a combination of our own user reviews and those of TripAdvisor, I’ve put together a Top 10 List of the best ‘Royal Hotels’… I wonder which one Wills is taking Kate to?!

Royalton

New York, USA

In 2007, Royalton proudly re-opened its doors onto midtown Manhattan, re-thought, re-imagined, but still an icon. Morgans commissioned Roman and Williams, the New York design firm, to re-create Royalton’s legendary lobby as a crossroads for international travelers and the New York elite. The design – simultaneously sophisticated and complex – juxtaposes an icy cast-glass vestibule and brutalist steel and brass furnishings with soft suede upholstery, thick leather walls and hide-covered chairs to create a dark, sexy and luxurious space.
