2011 HotelClub Awards: United Kingdom and Ireland
The HotelClub Hotel Awards accents and underlines hospitality excellence wherever it may shine. Not content to doff caps for the usual, telltale milestones of comfort and luxury, such as sheet thread counts, pillow menus, lobby dÃ©cor, rooftop bar scene and room service, the laurels often come with a twist.

Check out a sampler of a few United Kingdom and Ireland hotels that made enough of a valiant impression to qualify for the 2011 HotelClub Hotel Awards:
With persistent whispers that the likes of Cheryl Cole and Pippa Middleton prefer the swank luxury of The Langham, the Regent Street property was a shoo-in.
Marylebone is no stranger to the upscale afternoon tea scene but few digs compare with the plush Winter Garden at The Landmark.
It never hurts to stay in a hotel with a manifest “design philosophy”. Even better if the property is a Grade II landmark with inimitable Edwardian and Art Deco flourishes, as is the case with the Town Hall Hotel & Apartments in Patriot Square.
The Regency in Whitehall, Dublin is just the place to hurl – and bat and kick and serve – when the Gaelic Games come to town. Whether a fan of rounders, Gaelic football or handball, the conference and leisure centre is tops for spectators and participants alike.
For some strange reason, wee drams taste that much sweeter in the Highlands of Scotland. Enter the exquisite Macdonald Aviemore Highlands Resort Golf & Spa, a premier property in the heart of Cairngorms National Park.
