Editor’s note: Rosewood London provided a complimentary stay to TPG. The opinions expressed below are entirely from the author and weren’t subject to review by Rosewood London.

Before the U.K. descended into its winter lockdown, TPG U.K. was invited to experience an incredibly special spot in London: The Manor House Wing at Rosewood London. It's one of the biggest hotel suites in the British capital, situated inside a wonderfully luxurious property (that TPG recently deemed fit for royalty) and the stats are mind-blowing.

The Manor House Wing, when expanded to full size includes the Manor House Suite, a foyer, lounge, library/study, dining room, kitchen, powder room and six further bedrooms spanning almost 6,500 square feet. The wing has its own private entrance, postcode, butler and private lift. One night costs a cool £20,000 (about $28,000). Luckily, we didn't have to pay £20,000 per night to stay in the Manor House Suite, as Rosewood London invited us to stay.

The suite is so big that during one evening of my stay, a musician and barman were present in the lounge to serve up cocktails to be enjoyed along with live music. But don’t take it from me — Drake is known to stay at Rosewood London (in fact, a portrait of him hangs in the library of the Manor Suite) and in the song “Life is Good” he raps “Manor house in Rosewood, this s**t too plush.

While I was lucky enough to experience the Manor House Wing in all its glory, in true TPG style, we decided a comparison was needed. A four-minute walk away — literally just around the corner — Jean trialed one of the smallest hotel rooms in London at the Z Hotel. His room measured approximately 86 square feet, almost 70 times smaller than my suite at Rosewood London. The cost helped to compensate for the size. Rooms at the Z Hotel start at £50 (about $70) per night.
