The world has finally opened up again after two years of stagnation, although Zoom meetings were fun, deluxe business travel is back on the menu and judging by the look of these hotels, they are a lot more fun! 

Top luxury UK tours and itineraries aren’t just reserved for discerning couples and families, there is a wealth of striking luxury hotels around the big cities of the world that are geared towards corporate guests.

Just because you are travelling for business doesn’t mean you should skimp on the finer things like fabulous dining, gorgeous recreational facilities, or in-room comforts. 

The City of London retains its title as Europe’s dominant financial hub, so this is naturally where the majority of the hotels we’ve included in our list below are located… take a look at our top picks below.

The Hoxton Hotel, Shoreditch, London 

A super-cool offering in the heart of the capital, The Hoxton Hotel is positioned in the buzzing creative district of Shoreditch, close to Old Street where you can find the trendy tech start-ups.

Its 210 stylish rooms include Shoebox, Cosy and Roomy. With an industrial design vibe, they are simple yet luxuriously comfortable, featuring parquet wooden floors, sleek round mirrors, and monochrome bathrooms as well as all the modern amenities you would expect from a top-of-the-range city hotel, like funky Roberts radios. 

The Hoxton Grill is the hotel’s main all-day hangout, a Chicago-themed grill restaurant, bar and lounge with American-style food and a casual, fun atmosphere, while Maya is a gorgeous rooftop eatery serving a Mexican-inspired menu of lunch, dinner, and drinks.
