Travel Inspiration; London’s Most Stylish Hotel Rooms

The most original, luxurious and fashionable rooms that this eclectic capital has to offer…

From the cutting-edge, contemporary cool of the hottest design hotels to traditional British glamour – and everything in between – London has an abundance of the world’s best hotel rooms, but what’s right for you? We’ve decided to investigate the most stylish rooms at the capital’s most stylish hotels and, from designer Hoxton-cool to international icons, we’ve picked out a hugely diverse selection of the city’s very best hotel rooms…

London's Most Stylish Hotel Rooms

The Market Suite at Fox & Anchor

A seriously good gastro-boozer in the heart of Clerkenwell, the Fox & Anchor is a considerable draw in its own right. Add six luxurious bedrooms and more than an ample dose of hospitality know-how – the owner is also the proprietor of the Malmaison hotel chain – and you’ve got one of the capital’s top boutique hotels. The spacious Market Suite, with its free standing copper bath, double copper sinks, outside terrace and state of the art amenities, is to die for…

The WOW Suite at W London – Leicester Square

With its cutting-edge design, translucent glass façade with interactive lighting installations and signature über-chic attitude, W Hotels have arrived in London with a serious bang. The opulent WOW Suites at this new Leicester Square icon may set you back a couple of thousand pounds a night but they’re possibly the city’s most lavishly stylish bedrooms – that is of course until we see pictures of the currently under-wraps £5,000 a night E WOW Suite, complete with a circular sofa centrepiece that dazzles under a mirror ball sculpture, 4 person shower and 62inch TV screen in the bathroom…

Townhouse Apartment at The Zetter Townhouse

The Zetter Hotel’s new baby sister is the utterly fabulous The Zetter Townhouse and I was lucky enough to stay in the Townhouse Apartment whilst reviewing the just-opened, eclectic cocktail lounge with rooms for We Heart. The majestically elegant suite boasts a Sonos sound system, freestanding bath, Nespresso machine and lavish lounge area – it’s also just upstairs from one of London’s most exciting and decidedly original new bars…

‘East London’ themed rooms at Hoxton Hotel

With a low-cost airline style pricing system – book early for best prices – regular £1 sales, inclusive Pret Breakfasts and an empty minibar with shop priced beverages for sale in the reception, you’d think Shoreditch’s Hoxton Hotel would be some horror show pod-hostel. It’s not. It is however one of London’s coolest destinations. Polished concrete, exposed brick, bustling bar and super-cool Hoxton Grill Restaurant are at odds with the ‘budget’ tag, and their 3 new East London themed rooms – each by a different designer – perfectly sum-up the hotel’s dedication to cutting-edge design…

London's Most Stylish Hotel Rooms

The Penthouse at The Sanderson

The iconic Philippe Starck designed Sanderson opened its doors in the year 2000 and has maintained its status as the capital’s coolest hotel ever since. Starck’s surrealist decor – art pieces thrown together with designer furniture and the muted tones and layers of curtains that have shaped the appearance of design hotels for the last decade – dominates the lavish penthouse, a dreamlike two-bedroom suite that, at times, can seem more gallery installation than hotel room…

London's Most Stylish Hotel Rooms

The Square at Malmaison

The London outpost of the UK’s most decadent hotel chain sits on the beautiful Charterhouse Square in stylish, foodie haven Clerkenwell. The signature suite, The Square, is the crème de la crème at this decidedly provocative boutique hotel – slip into the huge, wooden bathtub then stretch out on the suite’s huge sofa…

London's Most Stylish Hotel Rooms

Suites at the York & Albany

You may think the two suites that overlook Regent’s Park are the jewels in the York & Albany crown but, being a Gordon Ramsay hotel, there’s also a first-class restaurant, slick bar with cocktails and pizzas, beautiful deli and 3 course picnics to enjoy in the park, that could persuade you to leave your elegant, antique laden apartment…

Loft Suite at Sanctum Soho Hotel

Whether or not Iron Maiden and/or other rock stars are involved in the financing/running of Soho’s Sanctum – there’s been some mixed reports in the national press – its location, and that their smallest rooms – the “Crash Pads” – offer “a welcome retreat for the fast and furious”, ensure that the Sanctum Soho lives up to its unofficial title of London’s most rock and roll hotel. The opulent loft suite boasts two king bedrooms, two freestanding baths and two full ceiling rain shower rooms and opens onto the hotel’s super-stylish roof garden and residents’ bar – meaning the decadence is never far away…

London's Most Stylish Hotel Rooms

The Rough Luxe Hotel

Small rooms, shared bathrooms – sometimes amenities aren’t everything and, as their ethos states, The Rough Luxe is a “little bit of luxury in a rough part of London. A little bit of rough in a luxurious London”. There are some rooms with en-suites, including one with a beautiful free-standing copper bath – but the emphasis here is heavily on design, and it’s a breathtaking experience. Part guesthouse, part art project – the Grade II listed King’s Cross house was transformed by acclaimed artist and designer Rabih Hage – all the rooms are a fusion of distressed walls, old and new furniture, and original contemporary artworks…

London's Most Stylish Hotel Rooms

Charles & Ray Eames at Boundary

Having been overseen by Sir Terence Conran himself, this new Conran & Partners project – restaurant, food shop, bakery and rooms – was always going to have a designer’s edge to it. Each of the Boundary‘s 12 guest bedrooms are a homage to legendary designers or design movements and _theBrief’s favourite has to be the simply divine Charles & Ray Eames Room – if not just for the chance to kick back in the famous Eames Lounge Chair all day long…

London's Most Stylish Hotel Rooms

Loft Suite at Covent Garden Hotel

Traditional glamour, refined elegance – it’s all here in abundance at the Covent Garden Hotel’s newly revamped loft suite. Two floors, two bathrooms, lounge, bedroom – all spread out over 775 sq ft, this expansive suite is one of the city’s most handsome hotel rooms…

De Montfort Suite at Town Hall Hotel

Gritty Bethnal Green’s Edwardian town hall is now a cutting-edge design hotel and in Viajante has one of London’s most desirable restaurants – helmed by rising star Nuno Mendes. In the De Montfort Suite it also has one of London’s most desirable hotel rooms – a breathtaking conversion of a magnificent public concert hall, with a triple height ceiling and all-glass room dividers. You’re right in the heart of London’s vibrant and cultural East-end but with a room like this, and that the suite comes complete with a state of the art kitchen – from which Mendes can prepare an exclusive tasting menu, you’ll almost certainly not step outside…

Bigger bedrooms at the Dean Street Townhouse

Right in the thick of thriving Soho is the Dean Street Townhouse, a recent addition to the decidedly hip Soho House Group, and already somewhat of a destination in itself – due, in no small part, to the hugely popular restaurant that’s littered with original works from some of Britain’s finest artists. The ‘bigger’ rooms are works of art in themselves, all muted hues, rich and luxurious furnishings and elegant free-standing bathtubs…
