Story by Ken Panton

Ideally located in the fabulous heart of St. James in London near the Spencer House, St. James Palace, Buckingham Palace, and Trafalgar Square, Westminster Abbey, and Big Ben, Dukes Hotel is also directly near great shopping and exceptional restaurants. Following a complete renovation, Dukes has a fresh new look, which is entirely English in style, and a warm and luxurious vibe prevails throughout.  On entering the quaint courtyard that is home to this Gem of a hotel guest is embraced with an air of discretion and confidence – for all that stay at Dukes are London insiders of sorts.

The design in the 90 rooms/suites at Dukes complements its history and traditional with English style. Rooms are complete with many fine features, including free Wi-Fi, 24-hour room service and posh amenities. The Health Club houses a refined and elegant Italian marble steams room, a gym and beauty treatment room. Dukes Bar is world famous for its martinis and when your there you become an instant VIP along with the other international and local jet setter of style on hand.

Dining at Dukes is like have a great meal with friends in an elegant dining room with a menu that offers classic British dishes with a twist. After diner a drink and a cigar in the indoor garden is a must.

This hotel has been a crown jewel in London for almost 100 years and with the recent revisions this address of distinction has only become more exclusive.  

Seven Tides, owners of this five-star hotel that has become one of London's leading boutique hotels, announced back in November 2010 that after enjoying notable success with Dukes over the past four years in association with Campbell Gray Hotels, the company is now looking to grow the Dukes Hotel brand across Europe, the U.S. and the Middle East under the Seven Tides Hotel Management Division. As a result of all this the association between Campbell Gray Hotels and Seven Tides ended on December 31, 2010.

The hotel will continue to be managed by General Manager Deborah Dhugga and her team, and will now launch future expansion developments under the guidance of Seven Tides Hotel Management Division. We are delighted to have this opportunity to share our brand with the rest of the world,” said Dhugga.  “We would like to assure our guests that they can anticipate the same high-quality hotel experience they have come to expect from Dukes, and that no internal management changes are planned.”

The award-winning Dukes has seen growing success as one of London’s finest hotels following its renovation in 2007 and with the Seven Tides partnership perhaps Dukes Hotel along with its famous internationally acclaimed Dukes Bar and its signature martinis will be popping up in Qatar, Paris, Munich or even New York, this will be fun watch and see what is next for the Duke Hotel brand that is know for it’s style and luxury.
