Up first: the lovable canine-in-residence at Rosewood London
As you stroll through the archway of Rosewood London, your first greeting may not be by the concierge, but by Pearl, the resident golden retriever. Having grown up in the grand lobby and, when she's particularly ladylike, the rooms themselves, Pearl is as much a part of the hotel’s lived-in character as the sumptuous velvet armchairs alongside Scarfes Bar. You see, Rosewood London is a pet paradise par excellence: Pearl welcomes your cat or dog with a special pack full of treats, as well as a welcome letter of tips and pet-friendly parks in the area. And trust us, she knows the area like the back of her paw—she's a local celebrity and has the Instagram account to prove it.
