Thanks to social networking sites, we can now follow every move of our favorite stars. One making the rounds on Twitter is pop singer Britney Spears, who was in London this month for eight shows at the O2 Arena. Though we're sure the performances were a hit, we're impressed even more by the hotel she and her entourage stayed at: Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London. Her official tweet:
"I want to thank everyone at the Mandarin Oriental in London for the hospitality this month! You made my boys and I feel right at home."
Though we sometimes bash her music, we can't argue with her taste in lodging. In a city littered with fabulous hotels, Mandarin Oriental sits right at the top with exceptional design, amenities and, as Ms. Spears submits, unparalleled service.
Want to feel the Britney Spears experience? Now is the time at London's Mandarin Oriental, which is offering a slew of great rates and packages. Its "Luxe For Less" package, starting at $620, is ideal for shopaholics. It includes accommodations in a Courtyard King room, price reductions at certain Westfield London stores, a VIP Discount Card for Westfield shopping center, in-room Armani goodies, a selection of shopping-inspired in-room movies, and full English breakfast for two. This package is valid up to January 31, 2010.
Or, book the Delight Rate this summer, the hotel's best available rate during specified time of booking; rates begin at $390 for certain periods and include a $50 hotel credit ($100 if you stay in a suite). The Delight Rate is available year-round.
