"Blakes hotel, world's first boutique hotel"

Four Seasons Canary Wharf, London

Lisa Richards reviews the Four Seasons’ luxurious Docklands outpost.

“Just a few days before, Justin Bieber had been sleeping on this very bed. And we could certainly see why A-listers opt for this place: secure parking down in the bowels of the building, so lying-in-wait Paparazzi and hoards of screaming girls can be avoided; discreet super-professional staff that can point you in the direction of the private lift; the ability to escape by speedboat from the banks of the Thames below…”

See Your World From Another Perspective

Don’t get us wrong: we could never tire of London. But sometimes life gets in the way of enjoying this vibrant, incredible, crazy city that we like to call home. Saturdays for us are about finishing off the week’s unfinished work, diving into the papers, partaking in a cold beer and putting our feet up – perhaps with the odd game of Scrabble on the iPad. Rock and roll, no, but when you work hard, playing hard isn’t usually the sensible option. So we’ve made a pact in the Resource office: to grab what London has to offer with both hands (as long as we don’t have to put down our drink). Starting next weekend (oh we do hope this glorious weather holds), we’ll be discovering this city through the eyes of a sophisticated, stylish, in-the-know tourist: we’ll be eating at the best restaurants, staying in some of this city’s most beautiful, luxurious hotels (we can’t begin to tell you how decadent and fabulous it feels to know that there is a suite with our name on it at the Four Seasons Canary Wharf) and finding the perfect spot from which to take the best shots of this stunning metropolis.
