Ready the royal treatment? We’ve been pouring traditional Afternoon Tea for 113 years and counting. Take your time in the elegant Lobby Lounge, an airy space that channels turn-of-the-century elegance with modern refinement. Linger over flaky scones with housemade strawberry jam, fluffy pastries, honey from the hotel hives and finger sandwiches presented with flourish on our tiered tea service. We offer an exclusive selection of premium loose-leaf teas in royal china, a gift from her Majesty in 1939, at this celebrated Empress ritual. And if you like, elevate the event with champagne service. Why ever not?
