One of the world’s foremost hubs for business, London has a near-mythical status amongst professionals. It’s home to home of the largest companies in the world and an inspiring pool of talent, and in 2022 was second only to New York in The Global Financial Centres Index.
These are all reasons why, prior to the pandemic, it received nearly 4 million international business visits each year. While this number has certainly dropped in the post-pandemic alignment towards hybrid working, the city is still a premier destination for business travel. But if you’re heading on a business trip to London, where should you stay? What hotels are best for helping you get more done, more effectively, while away on business? Here are five of our favourites.
