Expert Review

Hotel buzz is notoriously fleeting. But since its debut in 1997 under the klieg lights and the arrival of many imitators, the Met has lost none of its luster. The Old Park Lane hotel, famed for its minimalist interiors, still draws a stylish crowd with its many charms: front-row views of Hyde Park, a Como Shambhala spa, a Michelin-starred Nobu restaurant, and the happening Met Bar (only open to hotel guests and members, and one of the reasons Metropolitan earned a spot on our top 10 party hotels list)It’s worth trying out the Met’s Afternoon De-Light (Monday–Saturday, 3pm to 6pm), a (potentially) boozy take on English teatime, then dropping by at night when the bar hosts the latest London DJs, music acts, and entertainers; past performers include bands Oasis and Kings of Leon as well as then-unknown comedian Russell Brand.
