London's The Berkeley Hotel Offers Guests iPad at Check In
Not yet available in the UK, the iPad will provide guests access to a new level of guest services. Hotel staff will demonstrate key features of the device at check in. The Berkeley plans to continually expand and vary its range of apps, even developing Berkeley-exclusive apps by the end of the year.

Guest staying in the hotel's chic Berkeley Suites, Conservatory Suites and Chelsea Suite will be amongst the first to experience Apple's latest technology which launched in the US last month. From Le Monde to the Wall Street Journal, your local newspapers will be available at breakfast and quickly checking the opening times of Christian Louboutin on nearby Motcomb Street has never been more convenient and up-to-date.

A wide range of children's games, videos and comic books is available to Wow the youngsters. The Berkeley concierge has created a Top 5 of must-visit shops, exhibitions and local attractions, categorized under "Children", "Fashion" and "Culture". These insider tips have been clearly mapped so that guests can plan their itinerary from their bedroom, whilst learning about the latest, often unknown, must-do's.

Complimentary iPad access is available for guests during their stay in the Berkeley Suites, Conservatory Suites and The Chelsea Suite where rates start at £1300 per night plus VAT.

The Berkeley is located in fashionable Knightsbridge and offers memorable experiences including London's only roof-top health club and spa on the eight floor with panoramic views of Hyde Park. On sunny days the roof retracts with the push of a button creating the Capital's ultimate Roman-style outdoor swimming pool. Berkeley Suites, a recent edition to the hotel, have been designed by leading British interior designer Helen Green in sumptuous fabrics in hues of dove grey, snow white and powder blue hues which create an oasis of luxury and calm.

For the ultimate stylish treat, The Berkeley invites guests to Prêt-a-Portea, a fashion inspired afternoon tea that showcases the must have items of the season in the form of colourful pastries and biscuits. 'The Blue Bar' meanwhile, invites guests to London’s ultimate cocktail paradise and two Michelin-star restaurant Marcus Wareing at The Berkeley offers some of the capital's finest culinary experiences.
