The Knightsbridge is gorgeous, friendly and comfortable, with cozy parlors, a huge honor bar and a location—steps from Harrods in a quiet cul-de-sac—that can't be beat. The look is traditional English contemporary, with granite and oak bathrooms and sandstone fireplaces. Co-owner Kit Kemp keeps the place feeling forever new with an ongoing refurbishment. Two rooms a year undergo a complete makeover.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
