The London Edition: one to watch!
A stone’s throw from prime shopping spots Regent Street, Oxford Street and the theatres of Soho and Covent Garden…the London Edition deserves a second look. Ian Schrager, the world’s trendiest hotel guru, has given the place the full measure of his art! Behind the extremely aristocratic façade of this Victorian building, seamlessly get to the heart of the hotel. The enormous lobby, also acting as a bar, has 6m ceilings, dressed in original marble and vintage mirrors which works together with an ovoid foil ceiling light: a sublime combination of design and a classic 19th century style. In the restaurant, the Berner’s tavern boasts 185 works of art: photos and pictures of various sizes and styles. The 173 rooms and suites lead off from corridors designed in a semi monastic starkness, a surprise after the pomp of the ground floor!
