Date: Friday, 10 July 2009 Travel + Leisure's Number Five spot among Small City Hotels in Europe goes to 41, a 5-star boutique hotel in the Red Carnation collection. Situated opposite Buckingham Palace's Royal Mews, Travel + Leisure describes Hotel 41 as a "discreet and private retreat with a private club air". This subtle symphony of high technology and pure luxury is a haven for the business-savvy traveler and a cocoon for the discriminating guest. The pampering never ends. Guests help themselves to tasty treats in the pantry 24 hours a day, watch CNN on the plasma screen TV, and join the general manager in the evening for cocktails. A personal butler will coordinate a shopping trip, arrange for afternoon tea, and answer any technical questions at a moment's notice.
