4 New London ho­tels

Business Traveller - - UPFRONT -


Opened in June, this lux­ury ho­tel in Hol­born is in what was a Bap­tist church, dat­ing back to the start of 20th cen­tury. Much of the orig­i­nal ar­chi­tec­ture has been re­tained and the build­ing now of­fers 39 in­di­vid­u­ally styled rooms. The main restau­rant, The Bap­tist Grill, is lo­cated in the glass-domed oc­tagon that once served as the chapel and there are also two event spa­ces, an all-day din­ing café/bar and a gar­den. From £390 a night. loscar.com


This ad­di­tion to the build­ings old and new on the South Bank will open in Oc­to­ber. The Bankside Ho­tel, which en­joys a prime po­si­tion be­tween the South­bank Cen­tre and Tate Modern, aims to be a cul­tural hub and creative space. Among the six­s­torey glass-clad ho­tel’s 161 rooms will be seven suites, and guests can also ex­pect work lounges, a restau­rant and bar with a ter­race, and a gallery space. From £290 per night. bankside­ho­tel.com


Soho House has trans­formed part of the BBC’s iconic for­mer west London head­quar­ters, Tele­vi­sion House, into a new ho­tel. The 45 rooms have been given a mid-cen­tury modern theme, an apt match for the ar­chi­tec­ture of the build­ing, which opened in 1955. The ho­tel also has a twofloor pri­vate mem­bers’ club with a rooftop pool and ter­race, a gym and a screen­ing room, all ac­ces­si­ble to ho­tel guests. From £120 a night. whitecity­house.com


The name of this ho­tel was in­spired by the City of London’s me­dieval trad­ing guilds, which in­cluded wine mer­chants (vint­ners) and tex­tile sell­ers (mer­cers). Vintry & Mercer pack­ages that sense of his­tory with a con­tem­po­rary look and high stan­dards of com­fort through­out its 92 rooms, in­clud­ing sev­eral bal­cony suites. Three pri­vate event spa­ces will also be avail­able. Lo­cated near Man­sion House, the ho­tel opened this sum­mer. From £190 per night. vin­tryand­mercer.com
