If to a passerby the Rosewood London appears to be unapproachable and even slightly intimidating at first, one foot through the hotel’s front door will reverse that first impression instantly. Once past the wrought-iron gates and concrete façade and inside the lobby, guests are treated to the classic, warm English hospitality that has become legendary the world over.
Although it may have only been a year since the Rosewood London opened its doors, the hotel has already become a favorite destination and meeting point for stylish locals and fashion-conscious globetrotters alike. Its décor, designed by renowned New York-based firm Tony Chi and Associates, is a tasteful mix of English heritage and contemporary chic. The warmly lit public areas are beautiful to look at and adorned with gallery-worthy artworks and books. In slight contrast to that, the 262 luxuriously large rooms with dark mahogany interiors are as modern as they come, boasting high-end comforts such as heated bathroom floors, a TV built into the bathroom mirror, and a well-stocked mini bar.
With everything you need to relax and enjoy yourself within the hotel’s walls, you’ll find it tempting to stay in and sample all that the Rosewood London has to offer. Guests can unwind and enjoy afternoon tea at the Mirror Room or dine alfresco at the terrace of the Holborn Dining Room and Delicatessen, which serves classic British cuisine with a twist. But if the streets of London beckon, you’ll find that the Rosewood London is conveniently located a hop, skip, and a jump away from the best of what the city has to offer: shopping at Covent Garden, broadway musicals at Soho, and well-known tourist spots such as the British Museum and Royal Opera House.
If old-school hospitality and modern comforts in the heart of London are what you’re after, then look no further than the Rosewood London.
