Simply called the Rosewood London, a neoclassical landmark built in 1914, on High Holborn in what was the headquarters of Pearl Assurance Company at a property cost of £85million [$139,458,572.60]. Tony Chi the designer respected the building’s Edwardian heritage in his scheme for its 306 vast rooms and suites and an all-pervading sense of luxuriousness.
Troy Alexander Project was a guest for a few days and tested the services at Rosewood London and offers our opinion; it felt like a truly grand hotel in the capital since another one of my favorites The Lanesborough. The merino jacquard throws on the beds in the suites are Etro; the 300-threadcount bed linen is the most satiny I’ve ever slept on and the toiletries are Czech & Speake. The overall aesthetic is quite modern, monochrome and metropolitan permeated with elements of Chinese artistic influences.
Rooms from £370 [$607.05] and suites from £995 $[1,632.49], including wifi, mini-bar, breakfast and – thoughtfully – laundry. If you are a guest and stay in a suite as I did; you had your own driver.
