The Franklin in London
Just a short walk from Harrods and The Victoria & Albert Museum in London, The Franklin combines the charm of an English townhouse with the opulence of a five-star hotel, thanks to acclaimed British designer Anouska Hempel. Its Presidential Suite is the perfect size for two guests and features a private lounge, walk-in closet, and marble bathroom with double sinks. Decorated in rich shades of grey, brown, and cream with modern herringbone flooring, the suite shines with marbled surfaces and mirrors. Of course, it wouldn’t be a truly British experience without your own electric kettle and assortment of hot beverages.
The St. Regis Washington, DC
Let the President have the White House. To feel truly important in the US capital, spend a night in the Presidential Suite at The St. Regis Washington, DC. Recently renovated in clean neutrals and bespoke accents, the 233 square-metre suite features upholstery with Italian beading, handmade French trim and tassels, carved French mirrors, and English furniture. While the suite may offer many of the convenience as your own home, you probably don’t have a St. Regis Butler on hand to draw your shades and deliver your morning coffee or unpack and store your luggage. Enjoy it!
