    Dorothy was right: There really is no place like home — especially if you live in London. Don’t get us wrong, we love nothing more than jumping on an airplane to some far-flung corner of the globe for a holiday the likes of which Condé Nast Traveller has never seen. But, our bank manager has made it pretty clear that “trips of a lifetime” can’t happen every other month. Instead, we’re looking for a little R 'n' R closer to home — at London's best boutique hotels.

    While it may feel strange to book a room in the city where you live and work, sometimes staring at four (beautifully decorated) walls that aren’t yours is just what you need to refresh the spirits. (Having a fully stocked mini-bar and ah-mazing en-suite bathroom can't hurt, either). So, open up your diary, start rooting around for a free weekend, and get ready for room service.
