What an amazing couple of days I have just had staying in the most beautiful London hotel. Work booked me in for a CPD course for Weds and Thurs this week and I was not too sure what to expect. To be honest the course was not that useful to me but the people were nice and it is always good to network...... but the hotel, well that was a real treat! We stayed at the Athenaeum Hotel on Piccadilly, Mayfair. It is a established 5* hotel but not one I had been to before and I have been to a fair few. What I loved was that it was decadent but also quirky and unique. Nothing appeared to be copied on every floor, all the art work was different and absolutely stunning. The receptionist checked me in and tried to get my hubbie and girls to stay too. I convinced her I really was quite happy to stay alone and off she took me for a tour of the hotel and then onto my bedroom to show me how all the lights, air con, ipod dock etc etc worked.
One of the best things she had to tell me was that my mini bar was completely free, as was the teddy in my room! No I did not drink it dry, but yes a few bits made it into my bag to come home with me!
