Rocco Forte's Brown's Hotel opens the doors to the Royal heart of London this Spring
London - From 31 March to 9 June 2011, Rocco Forte’s Brown’s Hotel will be unlocking the Royal heart of London for its guests with the launch of the ‘Royal Wedding Celebration’ Suite package.
To mark the occasion of the Royal Wedding of William and Kate and in celebration of the great city they live in, Brown's Hotel has designed a unique package for those looking to be treated like royalty. This package opens the doors to Royal London. The 2011 wedding is set to be unforgettable and this is an opportunity to become involved in England's history. Brown's Hotel, favoured by Queen Victoria for Afternoon Tea, invites you to be a part of our celebrations and enjoy a once in a lifetime experience.
A private limousine will be waiting at the airport to ensure the most stylish arrival at Brown’s Hotel in the heart of Mayfair, where guests will check in to one of Brown's elegant and fashionable Royal or Signature Suites designed by Olga Polizzi. Indulge in a specially created decadent 'Royal Afternoon Tea' before embarking on a tour of 'Royal London', guided by the bespoke royal points of interest map, created by the man “in the know” - Head Concierge, Simon Thomas. Brown's Hotel is within walking distance of numerous Royal hotspots including Kensington Palace, Buckingham Palace, Fortnum & Mason (preferred store of the Royals) and Mahiki, one of William and Kate's favourite night-time haunts.
Along the way, do not miss a private appointment and behind the scenes tour of Asprey, the Royal jewellers. Asprey, on New Bond Street, is two minutes walk from Brown’s Hotel and is a haven of jewellery, china and glassware. The unique experience of exploring the workshops and the sight of the intoxicating array of gems and treasures on the first floor of this historic store is sure to entertain, and may even inspire the commission of a bespoke piece - perhaps a sapphire ring to rival the Royal engagement ring of the future Princess Catherine?
Then, when back at your British home away from home, enjoy Rosé Champagne and a selection of Royal Treats that can be taken home as a reminder of a magical time, living like the Royals in London.
Brown’s Hotel looks forward to welcoming guests to celebrate our Royal heritage this Spring in this most romantic and regal city.
