If you want to enjoy historical accommodations but don't want to sacrifice your exercise options, consider this "Leading Hotels of the World" property. The West End location means there are plenty of dining and entertainment options nearby.

Langham opened in 1865 and has hosted dignitaries, celebrities and regular travelers for more than 140 years. There are five room types and all seek to be elegant with contemporary decor. Here's a tip to remember when booking: Request a room away from Regent Street, the busiest of the surrounding thoroughfares.

Langham's athletic-minded "crown jewel" is its lower level health club. Complimentary for hotel guests (25GBP others), this eye-opening facility serves all athletic-minded interests. Technogym upright bikes, recumbent bikes, treadmills, ellipticals, rowers, they're all supplied. Muscle-pumpers will appreciate the vast selection of weight machines, dumbbells, and even free weights (squat rack and bench), a rare find in hotel gyms.

Swimmers even get an option, though not a great one, with Langham's 16 meter (~ 18 yard) pool. No lane lines or stripes will help you stay in a straight line (and the water is a tad warm), but desperate lap swimmers can use this pool in a pinch.
