Since its opening in 2013, Rosewood London has risen effortlessly to the highest echelons of the capital’s luxury hotels, combining English heritage with contemporary sophistication. The grade II-listed Belle Époque building has been sensitively renovated, with the feel of a stylish London residence; guests enter a grand, wrought iron-gated former carriage arch, leading to the hotel’s historic central courtyard, with its majestic stone facades while the Grand Pavonazzo marble staircase soars to a dizzying 166-foot cupola. Inside, the hotel is the work of two designers: Tony Chi created the splendid Rose Bronze Gallery entrance, the jewel box Mirror Room restaurant and 263 glamorous rooms and 45 suites. Martin Brudnizki designed both the Holborn Dining Room – a bustling British brasserie with innovative cuisine and a trendy gin bar – and the wildly popular Scarfes Bar, its walls decorated with a collection of paintings by satirist Gerald Scarfe. Don’t miss Holborn Dining Room’s head chef Calum Franklin’s Pie Room, dedicated to one of Britain’s most iconic dishes. Every suite comes with a dedicated butler, and service is faultless.
