Located in High Holborn, Rosewood London is housed in a renovated 1914 neoclassical building. The ultra-luxe hotel combines English heritage with contemporary sophistication in a central location. Set in the heart of the city near Covent Garden, the City and West End theatres, it is an ideal base for business and sightseeing in London.
The 262 rooms and 44 suites have been designed by Tony Chi and Associates to create a homely, stylish feel with textured wood veneers, prismatic mirrors, lacquer and light grey fabrics. The public areas are connected with clean-line corridors, with Mirror Room restaurant on one side of the courtyard and the hotel’s bar on the other end.
Nestled on the hotel’s fifth storey, the exquisite Cupola Suite is designed in a delicate palette with meticulous attention to detail. Decorated by Tony Chi, the suite is entered through an expansive foyer and features an elegant bedroom with an adjoining den. The suite is complemented by a well-appointed living room up a small staircase.
The bathroom features indulgent Italian marble throughout with hand-beaten Alpaca silver accents, a walk-in shower and a deep soaking bathtub crowned by a TV screen discreetly built into the mirrored wall.
Guests of Rosewood London have access to many dining options including the beguiling jewel box design of the Mirror Room. The hotel’s “social eating room” serves breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner in a refined and opulent, yet casual environment.
Be sure to save some room for lunch and dinner. The Holborn Dining Room serves British cuisines in an antique style.
Designed as a mix between a 19th century drawing room and a gentleman’s club, the Scarfes Bar offers cozy chairs and over 200 malts. Guests can enjoy lunch in this bar.
Guests at the hotel can indulge in a range of pampering experiences at Sense Spa. The spa’s zen theme features bamboo walls, soft lighting and wooden walkways over rippling water and pebble stones leading to seven treatment rooms, one of which is an exclusive couple’s suite.
