The Arts Club, Mayfair
Founded by Charles Dickens in 1863 with the aim to create a place for people related to Arts, Literature or Sciences, The Arts Club is a renowned private members’ club known for its hospitality and friendly environment. In the beginning bedrooms used to be part of the facilities offered to Members but they were destroyed with the Blitz in 1940 and were never rebuilt again. Not until this year when 16 rooms and suites were designed, creating one of London’s finest luxury boutique hotels. Designed by the renowned David D’Almada, The Arts Club hotel blends the best of tradition with the most exquisite and modern hotel designs. A must-go!
The Zetter TownHouse, Marylebone
After the incredible Zetter Townhouse Clerkenwell, Russel Sage continued to shine with one of the most beautiful hotel designs of the year, creating the sister hotel Zetter TownHouse Marylebone. With a prime location on Seymour Street, the new 24-bedroom Georgian townhouse is a hidden treasure for anyone that loves antique furniture collections, hand-painted works and curious finds.
The Hospital Club, Covent Garden
In the heart of Covent Garden lies The Hospital Club, a unique private members club for artists. The seven storey building houses an exhibition gallery, TV and music studio, a screening room, a restaurant and bars and, of course, a 15 bedroom hotel. Rooms have been designed once again by Russel Sage with the aim to take hotel designs to the next level with rainforest showers, vintage pieces such as Roberts radios and original artworks.
The Laslett, Notting Hill
Inspired by local culture and British style, The Laslett was named after Rhaune Laslett, organizer of the famous Notting Hill Carnival, former Notting Hill Festival. Inspired by the festival’s energy, creativity and rich cultural heritage, the hotel mixes the heritage of a classic space with a sense of playful modernity – a project signed by Tom Bartlett by Waldo Works that shows us that hotel designs can feel just like our home.
