Since points are not real money (how my wife and I justified splurging on a $500 dollar per night hotel), we decided to spend two nights at Hotel 41 in London. We chose this hotel after reading reviews on Tripadvisor where it was actually rated the best hotel in the UK. The address is 41 Buckingham Palace Rd which gives you a good indication about how close this hotel is to Buckingham Palace. It is actually right across the street from the Royal Mews. As you can imagine, the service was incredible. From the moment we walked in the door, the hotel staff was eager to please. We were given champagne upon arrival which was a nice touch. We arrived early and they graciously let us use a spare room to get ready until our room was prepared. They have set hours at night referred to as "plunder the pantry" where there are small plates and a hot item on the buffet that are available free of charge. It was all quite good. They have an honesty bar so you can prepare your own drinks and just keep track of the ingredients used. Last but not least, there is free ice cream available at all times. Staying here was an incredible experience that I will never forget.
