The Marylebone Suite
We could tell you about the sophisticated palate of limed American oak and polished brass detailing that sets off the neutral linens, wools and silks. Or, the dual aspect lounge with its concealed 60” mirrored TV. Or, the separate dining area and private bar with Julian Chichester dining table. But the likelihood is it’ll be the expansive open-air terrace that grabs you first – all 430-sq. ft. of it, complete with plush sofas, Eames-inspired chairs, gas fireplace and TV (both built into the wall), all decorated in chic Scandi-style cedar woods and imposing slate, with retractable roof and blinds. So panoramic is the view, that a stay here on New Year’s Eve means you’ll be in prime position to take in not just the London skyline, but the fireworks over the Thames. And with built-in heating, chic throws, the retractable roof and blinds, this is a space that is as cosy in winter as it is addictive in summer. In short, if you’re looking for something with that X factor, to woo and wow in equal measure, there are few – if any – hotels in London that offer such a large, characterful and oh-so private roof space as this.
The interior of the 1,290 sq. ft. Terrace Suites boast all the amenities you would expect of an uber-luxury suite in London, providing a more sophisticated form of loft living. The clever configuration means that the living area can easily be used to host guests, with the bedroom kept private; (dual access to the bathroom, which features a double vanity unit, whirlpool bath, rain shower and TV, is via both the bedroom and communal areas). A separate dressing area and kitchenette adds to the apartment feel of the suite, and the added extras are on tap: soft drinks and snacks; a wealth of teas and coffees from Rare Tea Company and Nespresso; complimentary newspapers, fresh flowers and fruit all come as standard, together with a dedicated point of contact on hand 24 hours a day, meaning you’ll never need to leave your exclusive suite. Which is just as well – because we’re pretty sure you won’t want to.check availability
