Farfetch Ambassadors annual gathering.
Me and Ted.
You enter through a gorgeous front garden/patio.
This suite is giving me Chateau Marmont vibes in Central London.
To spark up the fire all you do is pull a lever to the left of the chimney. Never underestimate the impact an open fire has on your soul.
The bathroom is jaw-droppingly perfect. Not only is the tub insanely beautiful, the floors are heated and cozy, which is beyond comforting.
We were like ‘what’s this door?’ and opened it to reveal a glittering, mirrored mini-bar filled with snacks, drinks and beautiful crystal. There are fresh lemons, limes and oranges ready for your cocktails.
I mean, can you even with this bathroom?
Glad the Chiltern agrees that condoms should be free and in the bathroom not the mini-bar. This should be as standard as free WiFi IMHO!
They don’t give you an iron but instead iron your stuff and hang it. My PJs never looked better.
Ted was super into the old-style phone, too.
My room had a ginormous terrace. I felt special.
The tower from my terrace.
Instead of providing travel adapters to guests, the hotel has outlets that accommodate US, UK and European plugs. Hashtag genius.
Highs + Lows
The staff is absolutely without fault. These guys treat hospitality like a vocation and combine extreme professionalism and a can-do attitude with a friendliness and ease you don’t often see combined.
The décor – super charming vintage luxury. The best lighting we’ve seen anywhere in a long, long time
The bathrooms are bonkers. Those tubs! The heated floors! Utter perfection.
The fireplaces in every room. Perfect for ordering afternoon tea and getting cozy.
Owner Andre Balazs is there all the time, which is really nice to see. Well, if we owned it we would be, too.
Service – when they come and get your ironing instead of bringing you an iron then hang your perfectly steamed garments in your walk-in closet, you just think ‘I want this to be my life all the time.’

Luxury boutique hotel.
Super exclusive fashion/celeb mecca. The total opposite of cheesy. Cheesies not allowed in. Thanks Andre.
Totally central and a stone’s throw from gorgeous Marlebone High Street.
There was a DJ playing 60s music on vinyl both nights. People danced, too.

Yes, helmed by Nuno Mendes. Get the chicken caesar.
Insanely good lighting. It has a Chateau Marmont/Bowery Hotel vibe with a little more warmth and sparkle.
Best I’ve ever seen. In addition to artisanal top shelf liquor and snacks, there are fresh lemons, limes and oranges ready for your cocktails. And yes, duh, there’s a knife too.
Yes, free for guests.
Don't bring, it's not for kids.
SO expensive! But SO worth it.
