Stay in style in the heart of London

Offer available from: 29 June - 19 August 2018

Every summer for the past two and a half centuries, Piccadilly's iconic Royal Academy of Arts has filled their galleries with artworks submitted by artists from across the country. As the world has changed dramatically, so too has the art that makes it onto the walls of the RA each year to form the famously crowded and collage-like arrangement of pictures that dominates each exhibition. The Great Spectacle tells the story of 250 years of the Summer Exhibition, the world’s longest running annual display of contemporary art.

During its long lifetime, paintings, sculpture, drawings and architectural designs by household names such as John Constable, Joseph Mallord William Turner, Auguste Rodin, John Singer Sargent, Laura Knight, Zaha HadidPeter Blake and Tracey Emin have been displayed alongside work by first-time exhibitors, creating the distinctive visual character that draws thousands of visitors to the Summer Exhibition each year.

Combine your visit to this must-see exhibition with a stylish stay in one of our guestrooms or suites, all of which feature stunning Carrara marble bathrooms and access to the Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Centre to relax after a day of exploring the RA and London. This offer includes two tickets to The Great Spectacle, a Regent Street VIP shopping card offering concessionary prices, dinner at our grill and sushi bar Laurent at Café Royal, continental breakfast and a late check out*.
