    VIBE

    Quiet but chic. It’s a touch more private than other Firmdale hotels with a drawing room and Tiffany Library upstairs on the first floor to allow for a more exclusive ambiance away from the ground floor’s hubbub. You may run into a celeb or two, but don’t gawk–this is their holiday, too!

    GO HERE WITH

    Theater lovers (you're in the heart of it), girlfriends, or a man in touch with his feminine side–our wallpaper had bright pink flowers (but we loved it!).

    WHY WE LIKE IT

    Part of the Firmdale Group, so it’s got that signature cool, eclectic vibe going on. This is a bit quieter than sister properties Soho Hotel and Charlotte Street Hotel, but in a bustling location.

    AMENITY WE LOVE

    Rooms are not cookie-cutter; each has its own unique décor that gives it character. From fun color combinations to different layouts, these rooms are special. We also loved the extensive DVD library and took advantage of the chance to watch some London faves (um, Sliding Doors, Bridget Jones). As they say, when in Rome (or London!)...

    WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE

    Not much at all! We just happen to like to stay in other neighborhoods better (Soho, Kensington, Mayfair, Knightsbridge) for their less busy and less touristy feel, but it’s all a matter of preference.

    GOOD TO KNOW

    Film screenings every Saturday night–check with concierge for schedule. Rooms are sound proofed. The Loft Suite has soaring ceilings. Terrace Suite has spectacular views overlooking London.The Four-Poster Suite boasts the largest bed in London, at eight square feet. The hotel used to be a 19th-century hospital.
