Knightsbridge, home of Harrods, is a very exclusive section of London.
I first stayed there at the Basil Hotel in the late 1980’s.
The Basil was a wonderful old classic.
But H&M decided they needed more retail space.
The Basil was lost to the creep of throw-away clothes.
I’ve stayed at the Washington in Mayfair.
And the Flemings down the block.
And the Savoy, just off Trafalgar Square.
But nothing has replaced the sense of home,
I felt in a room at the Basil.
