MGallery opens Leicester Square hotel
ACCORHOTELS HAS OPENED an MGallery property on London’s Leicester Square.
The 86-room Victory House, London Leicester Square, MGallery by Sofitel has been designed by Michaelis Boyd, the company behind the interiors of Soho Farmhouse in the Cotswolds.
Inspired by the location, rooms and public areas feature prints of 1950s movie icons, while silent films are projected on to the lift and lobby area. Ground-floor French restaurant Petit Bistro offers al fresco dining.
Victory House is located on the north-east corner of Leicester Square. Its 19th-century terracotta façade was built in early French Renaissance style by theatre designer Walter Emden.
IHG has also announced that it will open the Hotel Indigo London One Leicester Square later this year. It will have 95 rooms, a rooftop bar, a restaurant and a gym. accorhotels.com
