Vagabonding Lulu Tip: Book Now to Ring in the New Year from a tower in London

Beat the crowds and book one of London's most desirable room for New Year's Eve. Where else could you sleep in a tower? No, not THAT Tower, but pretty close. The Royal Horseguards' Tower Suite is the only hotel room in London in its very own unique tower and offers unrivalled views of the annual firework display over the breath taking River Thames.

The hotel's Tower Suite is an 'upside down' suite with the bedroom on the lower floor, and the sitting room area on the upper level, giving spectacular panoramic views of some of the most famous sights in London including the London Eye, St. Paul's Cathedral and Big Ben.

In addition to this gorgeous suite The Royal Horseguards has a further 280 bedrooms and suites for the international traveler to ring in the New Year. Every room offers a built-in iPod docking station; free Wi-Fi access; BOSE surround sound; mood lighting; sensory mini bars; individual climate control; international plug sockets; a waterproof plasma TV, under floor heating and steam-free mirrors in the bathroom as well as sumptuous soft furnishings. In addition, the super king-size mattresses are branded by their manufacturer, 'the most comfortable mattresses in the world' and even come with the Royal seal of approval. Truly a bed fit for a Queen (or King)!

Recently refurbished for a total cost of $27million, the Royal Horseguards is full of surprises. There is no where else in London where guests can soak up breathtaking river views from the sanctuary of a flower-filled terrace, dine in an award-winning restaurant with a fascinating history, listen to a talented harpist in the lobby during afternoon tea or rub shoulders with politicians, past and present.

Availability and rate information may be found on the hotel's official website,
